Microsoft is continuing their successful 2-in-1 line with the Surface Pro 4. Not only does the hybrid device come with some killer specs, but Microsoft has also bundled it up with a free Xbox One. The deal could save buyers at least $300, depending on the specific type of the Surface Pro 4 they purchase.
The deal is good only until August 14, 2016. As Tech Guro Daily notes, it is only good for incoming students residing in the United States. Other than this, the discount of $300 is only applicable if the Xbox is bought as well. The buyer cannot simply choose to deduct the amount from the Surface Pro 4.
Tech Times adds that the whole package actually includes the Surface Pro 4, an Xbox One Console, a second Xbox One Controller, 2 free games and a $50 Microsoft voucher.The Surface Pro 4 has a 12.3 inch display and a resolution of 2736 x 1824 pixels. Like most hybrids, the screen is detachable from the keyboard, thus making it a tablet. It runs on Windows 10, and comes in a variety of storage options, ranging from 126GB to 1TB.
For $659, buyers can get the minimum storage of 128GB; for $1,059, buyers will get the 256GB version; $1,459 for the 512GB and $2,459 for 1TB.
The Xbox One set will come with "Gears of War: Ultimate Edition" bundle, "Tom Clancy's The Division" bundle, "Rainbow Six Siege" bundle, "Special Edition Quantum Break" bundle, an Xbox One Spring bundle and "The LEGO Movie Videogame" bundle. Game titles that consumers can choose from, alongside the Xbox One sets, are limited to "The Crew and Assassin's Creed Unity" and "Just Dance 2016."
Microsoft reiterates that the deal is only available for "K-12, higher education students, parents purchasing on behalf of students, education institution employees, faculty, staff, school board and PTA/PTO executives for K-12 and higher education institutions."
