If you've had your eye on the new Surface Pro for a while, the latest deal at the Microsoft Store may be worth a gander. As spotted over the weekend by Neowin, Microsoft is offering a bundle deal that includes the Core i5 variant of the Surface Pro with a platinum Type Cover included for $799. All told, that's $360 off what the combo would normally cost.
As for the device itself, it's powered by Intel's 7th Gen Core i5 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. This variant of the Surface Pro was introduced to replace the 4GB model at the $999 price point in May. And at $799, the bundle deal matches the starting price of the Core m3 model with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, so you're getting a solid hardware upgrade and a Type Cover for what it would normally cost to get in on the entry-level model.
The deal is set to run through September 15, so you've got some time to decide. But if you've been looking to hop on the Surface Pro bandwagon, this is a solid deal worth considering. It's worth noting, though, that you'll have to stick with the platinum Type Cover; no other colors are available with the bundle.
