How to Get Almost $500 Off a Surface Pro 3 Michael Kwan January 22, 2015 Hey! All you creative types out there! Have you been itching to get your hands on a thin and relatively compact portable workstation that you can take with you on the road, one that is powerful enough to handle your basic video editing needs? I’ve got some good news. There’s a special deal going on for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 that’ll net you $489 in savings. The first clue you’ll notice is the Adobe logo in the top-right corner of the image above. We had received an email from the folks at Adobe saying that they have an “exclusive offer for Creative Cloud members.” If you subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud, you can net a discount of almost $500 on Microsoft’s touch-tastic, laptop-replacing tablet (and get the free upgrade to Windows 10 when it becomes available). That’s the good news. The bad news is that this deal applies only to the top end model, bundled with the Black Type Cover keyboard. This means you get a 12-inch Surface Pro 3 with 512GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, 4th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, dual 5MP cameras and Windows 8.1 Pro. The regular price on this bundle is $2,128.99 Canadian, so with the $489 discount, that brings your price down to $1,639.99. It’s still a little spendy, to be sure, but that’s a significant savings on quite the powerful machine. The email we received was from a Canadian context, though I imagine a similar deal is being “exclusively offered” to our American counterparts too. Hit up the Microsoft online store to get yourself the Surface Pro 3. Update: An anonymous reader has pointed out that this could mean the Surface Pro 4 is indeed in the works and could be released soon. Food for thought. Share This With The World!
