May I ask a question?

With maximum respect in the interests in inquiry.

Do folks consider a Microsoft Surface Pro for $450 + tax a good deal?

i5 8250u
8GB RAM
128GB SSD

Thoughts gents?

P.S. Generation 6.

Serious question, as I've never owned or seriously researched the Surface line.

This feels way more expensive than $450 justifies.

Yep, it's one of our suppliers. I think it's a Christmas Thank you gift for using them.

Gifts are suppose to be free, but this will do.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Ok, so this is reading like a gloat. Not my intent.

You guys are great for getting back to this curious oaf (i.e. me) so quickly.

There are a large number of updates, and some updates for this device that are a mix of firmware and software.

This is no revelation, but just like the Google Pixel from Google, having a Microsoft Tablet probably endows one with the best and most up to date in both OS software and compatible firmware updates.

What a sleek device, I'm an idiot for not getting one sooner.

Almost certainly not.

To that point, if the seller had said 4GB RAM, I would've peace'd out even at $450. At 8GB, it's good enough for portable computing when I'm on the go.

My main workstation is also my main portable device, the Dell Inspiron 5505 Ryzen 4700U laptop.

My convenient ultraportable solution is now this Surface Pro. Just very pleased overall.
