Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 with Intel i5, 4GB of RAM and 128GB SDD is just $849

The Microsoft Store in the U.S. is currently selling the model of its Surface Pro 4 tablet with an Intel i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD storage for $849 (opens in new tab), a $150 savings off its normal $999 price tag.

At the moment, this is the only version of the 12.3-inch tablet that's on sale at the U.S. Microsoft Store (via Neowin) and the discount is slated to end on September 24. However, the price of this model with the Intel i5 CPU is currently cheaper than the $899 version with the less powerful Intel m3 processor.

  • So unfair, here it costs 1150€ still. Want one, but my wallet is too thin. 849€ would be nice, then I would consider buying.
  • It's a sale. Not price cut. Regional sales are normal. Hardly unfair to say it's 'unfair'
  • Consider buying is the Same as NOT buying.
  • No, I'm not considering right now with a pricetag of 1150€ but if it drops to 850€, well then its worth considering
  • Still no deal done
  • Nope
  • "just" LOL
  • I was about to say the same. That "just" thing made my day
  • Lol! "ONLY" 98749073€ now on ultracheap sale
  • Incoming Surface Pro 5 announcement in October!!!!!!! ... /s
  • And maybe Surface Mobile
  • And maybe not.
  • your dreams
  • Who at this website isn't a dreamer? Lol
  • Many of you are. Even after Nadella Said he would kill Windows Phone we still believed he would not and kept buying Lumia's. And now there is your wake-up call. Shop is closed.
  • He DID kill of WP. Now we have W10M. Lumia was always going due to the tainted / toxic perception of it. So yeah, its dead. Now we go on to different, and maybe better things, using the OS. Do YOU really think HP would have got on board had their not been positive feeling in their meetings with MS???? Jeez.....just move on and leave it to those who live on the optimistic side of the fence.
  • I was once optimistic when I got myself a Surface RT and a Windows Phone.
  • You choose the RT. You get what you pay for. It's a basic student/living room browsing device. That it can do.
  • The Same goes for WP8.1 phones. You get what you paid for.
  • Keyboard included?
  • Surface is next to go after Lumia. In 2018 Microsoft is software only.
  • Nah it won't.
  • We Will see. Give it time, the CEO is thinking hard to find a reason for killing Surface hardware.
  • Nah, he's not. Surface is successful and making profits.
  • Haha, your so wrong. There are plenty PC makers. The only thing where Microsoft has something to win is Xbox versus Playstation. Mark my words, Surface is dead. The Hype is over allready.
  • Provide numbers and trends or you'll just look ridiculous.
  • Okay. Tell me this. How much did they make with Surface? O, and consider this. Microsoft has abiut 100 billion dollars on bank accounts outside the US. Doing nothing. Why the fuss selling Surface to make perhaps 1 billion?
  • LOL? You really make no sense.
  • Thanks for your usefull comment.
  • Because it is business. Doesn't matter how much you have. You don't quit business because you have enough cash.
  • I know
  • Nah, I'm not, I'd even go as far to say you are.
    If we apply your logic to the smartphone industry, then Apple would stop making iPhones, because there are plenty of smartphone manufacturers. Despite that, Apple is the one many companies look up to and imitate. Just like many companies look up to and imitate the Surface's form factor and looks.
    Additionally, Surface makes money. It works, it brings in profit, it pleases shareholders. It's the best in it's class. It generates publicity for the company as a whole. What company would want to get rid of a product like that?
  • Now, you are the CEO at Microsoft. All you want is Cloud First, Mobile First. I think Surface is just a commercial. Its here and its gone, like Surface RT. Here today, gone tomorro. Never look back. And sure, Surface makes money but for a compagny like Microsoft it is not serious money. Its peantus.
  • You are, of course, welcome to think that. But I disagree. As CEO, you want profits, and any you can take. And Surface no doubt makes them a sizeable amount. The cloud-first idea pushes MS so that their customers can pick up one device and continue on another, seamlessly. But you still need hardware for that, and if you want people to build hardware for your OS, you've gotta how them you've got faith enough in it to build your own hardware too.
  • So, a commercial indeed.
  • Hey hey Gerald, you're sour lately. Surface line and Lumia line in the same boat really?
  • It's an easy way out for Microsoft. If software fails you can allways blame OEMS and lean back. No difficult questions to answer
  • Why MS would back off Surface?
    Give me reason mate.
  • There is no need for a computer called Microsoft. We have Dell, Lenovo, Asus, HP and many many more. Shell, Exxon, Esso, BP don't make cars to sell petrol. Why should Microsoft build computers when their business is selling software?
  • And your called that a reason? Fine.
  • It's as simple as adding 1 +1 together to make it 2.
  • Haven't you got somewhere else to be? I thought trolls were a little younger ;-)
  • He's a rare troll.
  • Why?
  • You must be Mad. And no, this is the right place for me.
  • Right place for you? Really? Why?
  • Don't think. You are not good at it.
  • Oh, so you don't even know why? Don't dodge my question mate.
  • I am not your mate. What question did I Dodge?
  • Have a look. You have time to spend mate.
  • Microsoft has always built hardware. Keyboards, mice, consoles and now in their new devices branch (called Microsoft Devices) tablets, phones, HoloLens, Notebooks and devices we don't yet know about. I have a friend working there. He won't tell me exactly, but said he will show me next time I visit him. So yeah... Surface not going anywhere in the near future.
  • You are on a hiding to nowhere ananve. These comments have been written down just waiting for a thread like this......
  • Hahaha, I like chasing him. Let's see how much troll he has got.
  • I have time to spend, so go ahead.
  • ;)
  • Except we are in a case where Shell created it's own car that has 30% marketshare and produces a fuel that can be used only in their cars. In other words you can try and look smart but you just look like a wannabe market analyst.
  • Haha, nice one.
  • Please do a video review on i5 4gb vs i5 8gb surface pro 4, still a confusing for students like me. I just use office one note, music and videos and browsing.
  • I think for what you'd be using it for, the increase in RAM wouldn't really be noticeable for those tasks. I have the 4GB model and am also a similar student, it's still lightning fast for me.
  • Thanks for sharing your experiences, it gives me confidence. I am getting one.
  • Go ahead. I'm using one with i5 and 4GB RAM. It does almost everything I want It to. Including AutoCAD, Inventor and NX. It just cannot run new high end console level games because of the lack of a dedicated Video card (like Nvidia, etc).
  • That was easy. Next... Who wants a Surface?
  • Just a kajillion only!!!
  • Great deal. Wow!!!!
  • Realistically, how much better is this than the surface pro 2 or 3? Especially since you can find an 8GB RAM/256 SSD version secondhand for pretty cheap.
  • Can this be combined with the educational discount? (I'll keep asking this in the faint hope that WinCentral will start adding this to all deal announcements..)
  • Although it's a really nice Tablet but, for $850 on a tablet/laptop, you have a lot of other options that are far more powerfull and fast.  If it was a newer i7, then I would not be sure but, we are looking at a i5... I would shop around a little more before jumpping on this, Some of the new options from HP or even Dell are really nice and more "PC" for the money. And If your buying a modern PC, I would not even look at anything under 8gb for memory. You want to think about today but, you also want to think about 6 months to a year down the line.
