Surface Pro 3 price cut for UK education buyers
Educators can a bag 10 per cent discount on the Surface Pro 3 if they buy a minimum of five devices from authorised resellers
Microsoft is knocking 10 per cent off the price of some of its Surface Pro 3 bundles for UK school users.
The price cut applies to the 64GB Surface Pro 3 that's powered by an Intel Core i3 processor, and the 128GB and 256GB versions that sport an Intel Core i5 one when sold with a black Type Cover.
The deal means the 64GB device should now set users back around 674 (down from 749), while the 128GB Surface Pro 3 will now cost around 863, which equates to a reduction of around 96. The 256 GB Surface Pro 3 will now cost 122 less at 1,097.
To qualify for the deal, education buyers must purchase at least five tablets from an authorised UK Surface reseller.
The Surface Pro 3 has been available to buy in the UK since the end of August and, unlike past generations, has been warmly received by tech reviewers.
The tablet is pitched by Microsoft as a replacement for traditional laptops, while its power and portability has been flagged in the past as making it a good fit for education users.
At the launch event for the device, Robert Epstein, Windows consumer lead at Microsoft, explained: "So many people carry both a laptop and a tablet but really want just one device that does everything.
"We are clear on our vision: Surface Pro 3 is the tablet that can replace your laptop - packing all the performance and utility of a fully-powered laptop into a thin, light and beautifully designed tablet.
"You'll love being able to carry one device for your next class, workday or weekend getaway knowing you have all the power you need," he added.
