Starting tomorrow on Sunday April 12th, there will be a $200 sale on the Surface Pro 3 i7 models says Microsoft, where both Intel Core i7 tablets with either 256GB or 512GB of storage will see a discount of $200.
This is the first Surface Pro 3 tablet deal on the Intel Core i7 models of this magnitude, but the sale is limited and will only last through April 18th. The sale will be available on MicrosoftStore through the link below, but not before 4/12, probably around 10:00 AM PST: $200 Off Surface Pro 3 i7. Valid 4/12 – 4/18/2015.
(UPDATED: As of Sunday 11:00 AM PST, it looks like someone at Microsoft forgot to turn on the correct sale button, since the sale today is just a 5% sale on all the versions with a sleeve included in the price instead. Hopefully things will be corrected during the week, but at least things are better over on Amazon, where they have the lower prices on the Surface Pro 3 i7 tablets.)
The processor is the 4th generation Intel Core i7-4650U processor at 1.70 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology up to 3.3 GHZ, which runs alongside the Intel HD Graphics 5000 graphics processor. So for those who need the fastest and most powerful tablet, this Windows 8.1 Pro tablet is it.
Surface Pro 3 is otherwise a Windows 8.1 Pro tablet with an award winning display that have been rated with one of the best tablet displays ever by DisplayMate, with a 12-inch 2160 x 1440 resolution display that has the famous digitizer support, and an included digitizer pen called the Surface Pen that lets you command the tablet even by clicking the pen. The command can be whatever you want it to be, though most people use the default setting which is to open up the note taking program OneNote.
The other specs are also high, like the 8GB of RAM, the full-range a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support, 5MP cameras on the front and on the back, stereo Dolby Audio speakers, USB 3.0, Mini DisplayPort, charging port, and plenty of tailor made accessories for it.
