Canadians have a special offer going on for the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 right now, where new customers will get a free Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II with either of these Windows 10 tablets: https://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msca/en_CA/cat/Surface/
That’s a $249 value in Canada, or $199 which is the price in the US for the powerful Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II.
The Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II has a good sound quality far above its size, but to me it’s the features that really makes it clever and stand out, with a docking charger that you can simply lift it out from if you want to take it with you, or the handsfree speakerphone feature when you pair it with your phone.
There are some Surface Pro 4 sales in the US too, but it’s only on the Intel Core i5 models, where prices are cut by $150. Actually, that makes the Intel Core i5 models cheaper than the Intel Core m3 model right now, so that’s a bit funny.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is the 4th gen. Pro tablet with Windows 10 Pro, a 12.3-inch screen featuring a display resolution of 2736 x 1824, with 3:2 aspect ratio, choices of 6th gen. Intel Core m3, or i5 and i7 processors, 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB RAM, 128GB to 1TB storage, a more or less complete array of hardware specs, along with optional keyboards and a free Surface Pen digitizer.
Microsoft Surface Book is Microsoft’s flagship tablet with a 13.5-inch display with a 3000 x 2000 resolution display, 8GB or 16GB RAM, Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, and choice of extra powerful Nvidia GeForce 940M graphics processor. Despite its size, it has a 12 hour battery life, is only 7.7 mm thick, and has a weight of just 730 grams for the tablet. The keyboard is also included with the Surface Book.
