Microsoft is not a stranger to discounts. The company has offered quite a number of discounted products over the last year. Now, it looks like 2017 won't be any different for the company. Apparently, Microsoft is currently selling the Surface Book with a considerable discount.
Microsoft Surface Book On Sale
Right now and until January 21, Microsoft is giving away a $150 discount if you purchase the Surface Book, as per GSM Arena. This variant that originally sells for $1899 is now priced at $1749. Take note that this is a 256 GB model with Core i5 processor and 8 GB RAM. You can also get the 128 GB / Core i5 version for $1349 (from $1499). Just head over to the Microsoft Store to start your purchase.
Microsoft Products 2017
With Microsoft giving away a good discount for an older product at an unlikely time, it's safe to assume that new ones are coming in in a few months. Rumor has it that the Surface Pro 5 will launch some time March but this hasn't been backed up by the company yet. Needless to say, this is a very plausible thing considering the fact that Microsoft did not refresh the Surface Pro series last year.
As for the Surface Book 2, it's still hard to tell whether or not it is coming in this year even though the company is giving away a huge discount for the older model. Microsoft has just released the revamped version of the Surface Book a couple months ago alongside the Surface Studio, so it's still uncertain if an entirely new model is coming up this year. Although of course, it would be nice to see a new Surface Book soon. It's interesting to see what else Microsoft can add to such an innovative computing device. With that, the Surface Book 2 would be such a welcome addition to this year's new devices.
