MICROSOFT – GETTY
Microsoft has revealed a major discount for its Surface Pro 4 device
Microsoft has revealed a huge new deal for its top-of-the-range Surface Pro 4 hybrid PC device.
The company has revealed a 15 per cent price cut for the Surface Pro 4, equivalent to savings of around £100 for customers in the UK.
But it looks like the offer is only around for a limited time, so if you want to take advantage, you'll need to move fast.

Express.co.uk was incredibly impressed with the Surface Pro 4 when we reviewed it earlier this year, branding it as "an almost-perfect laptop replacement."

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is lightweight, but packs powerful laptop-like internals and a vibrant, pixel-packed touchscreen display
The deal, available from the UK Microsoft Store, is linked to the two lower-spec versions of the Surface Pro 4, both of which have had the savings applied.
The basic model, which features an Intel Core m3 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB internal storage, is now available for just £635 (down from £749).
But the next model up, which comes with a faster Intel Core i5 processor, but sadly you're still limited to just 4GB RAM and 128GB storage space, is also now on sale, costing £720 (down from £849).
Sadly, there's no discount for the more advanced versions, which come with 8GB or 16GB of RAM.
Express.co.uk praised the Surface Pro 4 in our review of the device
The discounts could be a sign that Microsoft is planning to launch a new version of the Surface Pro soon, with the deals helping to clear out past inventory.
The Surface Pro 4 was originally launched back in October 2015, meaning it is ripe for a refresh soon.
For now, though, the device remains an attractive proposition for Windows 10 fans looking for a hybrid PC that will let them work on the go.
The Surface Pro 4 can operate both in touchscreen tablet form (coming equipped with the Surface Pen stylus) and in laptop form thanks to its fold-out keyboard.
Microsoft has also just released a much-needed firmware upgrade for the Surface Pro 4 which may finally solve the battery issues which had previously plagued the device.
The company says that the Surface Pro 4 is able to offer you around 9 hours of battery life, more than enough for the average working day.
Express.co.uk was pretty impressed with the device, calling it, “a phenomenal device” in our review, and praising its lightweight design and beautiful 12.3in display – although the battery life was below expectations.
