There is good news on the Microsoft side as the company gets ready to release its Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Windows tablet and according to sources it is going to rely on a pretty impressive promotion plan [via]. While we say the Surface Pro 4 was a good device, the pricing model may have been a bit too expensive for a lot of people.
The new promotion involves taking $300 off Surface Pro 4’s retail price when they buy the 4th-generation 2-in-1 device along with Xbox One. Technically speaking, the whole discount offer sounds more like free Xbox One for every Surface Pro 4 purchase according to Windows head Terry Myerson in a recent interview with The Verge.
The Surface Pro 4 device comes with Windows 10 full edition and a raft of nice features and high-end specs. Under the hood, the base model runs on Intel Core M3 for $899. The higher configuration variant powered by Intel Core i7 sells for $1599.The Student-only deal is valid up until August 14, International Business Times reported.
