Last week, Microsoft quietly extended deep discounts on its Surface Book, and launched a new deal on its Surface Pro 4, offering up to $300 off the tablet. Both of those deals ended on December 31, but the company wasted little time in beginning a new round of savings on those devices.
Buyers can currently save up to $150 off select Surface Book and Pro 4 models, but the duration of the offer depends on the model that you wish to buy.
The entry-level Surface Pro 4 - which includes an Intel Core m3 processor, 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD - is reduced from $899 to $749 until January 14. The Intel Core i5 model with the same RAM and storage gets a discount of $100, reducing it from $999 to $899, until January 28.
The most affordable Surface Book - with Core i5, 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD - has had its price trimmed by $150, falling from $1,499 to $1,349. The Core i5 model with 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD and dGPU is also reduced by $150, dropping from $1,899 to $1,749. Both of the Surface Book discounts end on January 21.
Meanwhile, there's still no sign of new stock for the two Intel Core i7 Surface Book models that sold out over the festive shopping season. Microsoft recently launched more powerful versions of the Surface Book i7 with a new 'Performance Base', which will soon be available in more markets around the world, and it's not yet clear if it plans to phase out the older models.
