Core i5 Surface Pro 4 gets a solid $200 discount from Microsoft
If you're in the market for a moderately powerful Surface Pro 4, now's your chance to score a pretty good deal from Microsoft. Right now, Microsoft's online store has the Core i5 Surface Pro 4 with 128GB of storage and 4GB of RAM on sale for $799 (opens in new tab) (via Neowin). If you're keeping track, that's a full $200 discount on the tablet's normal $999 price tag.
None of the other Surface Pro 4 models are on sale at the moment. However, that price cut knocks the Core i5 model down to the same price as the Core m3 without a pen, and it's actually cheaper than the Core m3 with a pen. In other words, this is a pretty solid deal if you don't happen to need the power of a Core i7 processor or more RAM.
This deal is set to last through February 4, so you've got a few days to decide if you want to pull the trigger.

I believe their is a similar discount currently on The UK site as well. And Surfacebook is still on an amazing offer at £999. Considering it doubles as a powerful tablet and powerful laptop with best in class picture that's an amazing price.
I'll bite when I see just as healthy discounts on their upper-tier Surface Pro models.
They've had them in the past. At one point the 256GB Pro 4 was $999 last year. Still, I'm still okay with my Pro 3 256GB, and the Pro 5 has to be on the horizon, given how old the Pro 4 is at this point.
If you're not in a rush, i would say hold on awhile more till the Pro5 arrives
Have been watching Costco...they ocasionally have Surface discounts that totally surpass whatever Microsoft or other retailers are offering. Plus, you can't beat 4 years of extended warranty coverage by using your Citi Costco card.
