[Best Buy] Surface Pro and Type Cover bundle

Ok, so I think this is a good deal, but I need some help figuring it out.

I use a Surface Pro 4 (m3, 128GB) at work. Love it.

The Surface Pro 2017 (m3, 128GB) is on sale for $849.99.
https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/mi ... 37285.aspx?

But, there is a Surface Pro (m3, 128GB) for sale with Type Cover for $879.99 (no sale shown).
https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/mi ... 22679.aspx?

From what I can see, this is the same Surface Pro, just with a type cover (approx value $130). I just find it weird that the non "sale" item with extra value is just barely more expensive than the "sale" item.

I was about to buy the $849.99 version when I stumbled on this one. Is there something I'm missing? If not, I think this is a pretty good deal. I actually picked it up this morning, and can't figure out the difference.

Can you provide the link? I can't find it. The cheapest that I could find was $1118

Same here. But you can get an extra $47 off if you select in-store pick up.

I saw this in the Boxing Day flyer section earlier today. Note that this flyer states the price is good until the 24th. They subsequently have changed the pre boxing day price to $1,118.00 the rest of the flyer is the same. Their boxing day price is $998 for this same package. The manager sold it to me cause I said I was looking at flyer with that price and went and picked it up in Scarborough.

So tempting. SP4 with i5, more ram, and bigger ssd. Just wish there was a Visions closer to me. Not enough locations in Ontario unfortunately. And my next couple days are now all family devoted...
But as long as the HGG-0001 model I just bought has no glaring issues, I should still be happy with it.

Good price but I would go for 2017 i5 .... it's fanless and has better battery life

How's that fan profile from the throttling? It's always fun to have people stare at you as if you're using a Dell from 2008 when the fan kicks up on your shiny SP3.

I'm sure you will be happy with your SP4. You can always hook up to an external HD if you need more storage. I was using an SP3 until I accidentally put a screw driver through the screen yesterday morning at work, so I needed another one quick.

Don’t buy this. Microsoft are kidding themselves releasing this with only 4gb ram.

That's part of my original question. I just bought the bundle from the original post. I think I'm pretty sure it's a 2017, not a SP4.

I just went back and looked at your original post. You are correct, it is the Surface Pro 2017. I took a look at those as well, however, I couldn't live with that size hard drive as I use it for work. I couldn't justify the price difference between Surface Pro 2017 and SP4 if both are outfitted with I 5 processors and 256 SSDs.
