The Microsoft Surface Pro is a
powerful tablet computer that doubles as a laptop. But they cost a
lot to buy, so budget-conscious people might want to consider
opting for this refurbished Surface Pro 5 — on sale this week for
just $444.99 — as a more affordable choice.
Although this model is admittedly a few years old, it still has
quite a bit of life in it. It features a 12.3-inch PixelSense
touchscreen, a fast Intel i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of
internal SSD storage. And it comes with Windows 10 Pro, so you can
run the same software on it that you already use on your desktop PC
– which is rare as most budget tablets mainly run on restrictive
mobile platforms like Android or iOS.
This is a great option for students or creative professionals
who are always on the go. Note that accessories such as the Surface
Pen, the Multi-Position Kickstand, and the Surface Pro Type Cover
are not included, but can easily be purchased separately. When you
consider the savings you get if you choose to buy this refurbished
model, you’re still way ahead.
