Students can buy the Surface Pro 3 for as little as $650

If you're a student or educator, using Microsoft's education discount would reduce the entry level pricing of the Surface Pro 3 to just $649, or $150 less than the current $799 price tag for the Intel Core i3 model. The education discount appears to apply to all Surface Pro 3 models so even if you opt for a more expensive configuration, you can knock off $150 from the build price.

The discount will be ongoing through September 3rd at a Microsoft Store.

Does this $150 promotion entice you to buy a Surface Pro 3 for your studies before you head back to school this fall? Let us know if you decide on going the Surface Pro 3 route with the education discount.
