Just because the Surface Pro 5 is the previous generation of Microsoft’s high-end tablet doesn’t mean that it isn’t still a serviceable device. And now Microsoft has a deal on a bundle package that includes the tablet and a Platinum Surface Pro Signature Type Cover for only $599. That’s a remarkable $310 or 34% savings on the entire package.
The Surface Pro 5 is equipped with a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 12.3-inch display and this model features the seventh-generation Intel Core m3 processor under the hood. The tablet comes with 4GB of memory and 128GB of storage. There is an 8MP camera on the back with a 5MP snapper in front and Microsoft says that the battery will allow you to run the Surface Pro 5 all day on a single charge. As we pointed out, this bundle includes a Type Cover; the accessory not only protects your device, it also carries a physical QWERTY keyboard. And Windows 10 Pro is pre-installed. If you want to add the optional Surface Pen, Microsoft charges $99 for it.
If you need to have the latest version of the device, Microsoft will sell you what it calls the Surface Pro 6 “Essential Bundle” for $200 off. The tablet features an 8th generation Intel Core processor and you can choose from different configurations starting with the 128GB model with 8GB of memory and a Core i5 processor to the top of the line 1TB variant with 16GB of memory and a Core i7 processor. After choosing the Surface Pro 6 you want, select a color for your Type Cover. The bundle also includes a 1-year subscription to Office 365 and a 2-year extended protection plan with accidental damage coverage. This package starts at $699.
If you want to hold on to see what the next generation of the tablet brings, the Surface Pro 7 could see the light of day this coming October.
