Dec 5 pricing:
Surface Pro - Intel Core i5 / 128GB SSD / 4GB RAM CAD $1,299.00
CAD $1,169.10 For eligible students, faculty or staff at Universities and colleges.

Microsoft Surface Pro Type Cover (Black - English) CAD $169.99

so 1,299.00+169.99= 1,468.99 so 318.99 off, or 22%

Paying full price for an item is a sin. :twisted:

I had a surface pro 2 for a while. Great little device but sold it out without much usage. In my case, anything that was useful required a keyboard and as a tablet, it wasn't really as useful/ergonomic as an android/ipad device.

Also, it's false weight savings since I never actually took it anywhere without the keyboard adapter/cover.

So really, and ultralight notebook is where I've gravitated and works best for me.

The one clear win.... the stylus and touchscreen was amazing for drawing.

I just wished the battery was user replacable. Instead, they glued the battery to the casing as well as having it behind huge layers of screws.

I've owned 2 windows tablets now and have been disappointed both times. Might be good for sales folk but even then, you lose a lot of usability without a keyboard.

Final note. The high resolution is actually a problem for some of the professional programs that I use as they don't support font scaling :(

They should give 8 GB of ram to the base model. Even Apple are giving 8 GB of ram for all their base model Mac except for the mac mini.
I'll buy a surface pro when that day will come. IMO, I just feel it's a lot asked to spend an extra $350 to get 8 GB of ram (+ 128gb of storage)...

Usually all the deals and doorbusters get leaked early, not the case this year?

Exactly.

You can pick up a nice used pro 3 on eBay right now for $400-500.

I bought my Surface Pro 1 almost 4 years back for $400 used. 3 chargers later and the thing still works like a charm.

I thought this is good for only games/apps and not hardware. Are you sure it's applicable for the console/tablets/etc?

That's what I think too. Years ago I had some XBox credit from MS Store orders and I was only able to use them to buy XBox Live subscription, games and apps. Maybe a glitch or recent policy change.
