Microsoft has often referred to its Surface devices as 'the tablet that can replace your laptop' - but practically speaking, that only really works if you pay extra for the Type Cover keyboard to go with the tablet itself.
In the UK, the latest Type Cover - which is compatible with both the Surface Pro 4 and the earlier Pro 3 - is priced at £109.99, but you can now get one for a good deal less. Amazon.co.uk is currently offering all five colour options with up to 24% off:
- Black - £89.93 | save £20.06 (18%)
- Red - £89.99 | save £20.00 (18%)
- Blue - £83.21 | save £26.78 (24%)
- Bright Blue - £93.50 | save £16.49 (15%)
- Teal - £91.35 | save £18.64 (17%)
All of those prices apply to purchases sold by and dispatched from Amazon itself - but if you're willing to buy from an Amazon Marketplace seller, you may well find one available for even less. Be aware that the blue Type Cover - which offers the greatest savings - is currently out of stock from Amazon itself, but it can be ordered now with new inventory expected in a few days' time.
But if you don't like saving money, and you'd rather buy direct from Microsoft and give them more cash instead, you can take advantage of another offer available there - although not for much longer. Until September 1, when you buy a Type Cover from the Microsoft Store for £109.99, you'll get a free 32GB microSD card.
