Forget the Surface mini, Surface Pro 3 specs and prices detailed in new reports

Microsoft’s Surface Pro is a pretty incredible machine. When we reviewed the Surface Pro early last year, we said it was very fast, surprisingly smooth, and that it featured a gorgeous design. We also said it was priced very fairly at $899, which was perfectly in line with Apple’s 11-inch MacBook Air once you added on the cost of a Type Cover. If the Surface Pro was a fair deal at $899, it’s an absolute steal at $499. A BGR reader alerted us to a Best Buy sale taking place right now, and it offers Microsoft’s 128GB Surface Pro convertible tablet for $400 off its original launch price. The specs are a bit old and a newer Surface Pro 2 is now available, but a beautiful and capable 2-pound machine with a full HD display and a case that’s just 0.5 inches thick is a steal at $499. The sale price is only good through the end of the day on Saturday, so those interested in the sleek slate should act fast.
