Best Buy has big savings on a Microsoft Surface Pro, and there's never been a better time to make the leap from dedicated laptops and tablets to a convenient, all-in-one model. You can pick up a Surface Pro complete with a detachable black type cover for $549 at Best Buy right now, a discount of $410 off the standard price of $959. That's a more than 40% saving on a trusty piece of tech that will come in handy all across your daily life, and on one of the best pieces of hardware ever to come out of Microsoft.
As a satisfied Surface Pro owner myself, I can vouch for how nice it is to have a little PC that works well as a laptop and turns into a slick little tablet if you just pop the magnetized type cover off. It's been a perfect travel buddy when I'm on the road for work: with the keyboard attached my Surface Pro easily covers all my day-to-day computing tasks, then on the evenings or on an airplane it turns into a lovely little tablet machine for watching Netflix. It's even been great for playing performance-light games like Into the Breach.
This particular Surface Pro offering comes with a Black Keyboard, which is otherwise sold separately for $130. It has an Intel Core M3 processor, 4GB of memory, and a 128GB SSD. You can easily expand your storage with a built-in microSD slot as well. Most importantly, it comes with that sturdy and satisfying kickstand. It sounds silly, but I could sing the praises of that kickstand all day - you won't fully appreciate it until you try to use any other sizable piece of tech without it.
