Following our report on Costco's Black Friday promotion, which takes away $ 328 from the Storage Club's Surface Pro 6 packages, we now learn that Best Buy will offer similar packages and price reductions with respect to the latest Microsoft tablet. . For the holiday shopping event, the Best Buy ad shows the Surface Pro 6 package for $ 999, which represents a similar savings of $ 330 on the tablet if the device and accessory were purchased separately.
Unlike Costco, which sells only the tablet's platinum version, Best Buy offers the Surface Pro 6 in black color back this year. Best Buy currently lists its Surface Pro 6 package at $ 1,329 before taxes, but the agreement, valid between November 22 and November 24, will bring the price to $ 999.
For that amount, you will get Surface Pro 6 with an Intel Core i5 eighth generation processor, 256 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM. The Best Buy package only comes with the surface type cover. By way of comparison, the Costco package comes with the black type cover, the Surface pencil and an extended two-year warranty. Given the difficulty of repairing the Surface Pro 6, you may want to add an accidental or accidental warranty package to the tablet. The Best Buy Geek Squad Protection Plan starts at $ 129 for one year of protection against accidental damage and goes up to $ 269 for three years of coverage. Users who want the Surface Pen can pay an additional $ 99 through Best Buy.
Although Apple is closing the gap in tablets that could replace laptops and PCs with the recent launch of the company's new iPad Pro, the Surface Pro 6 is still one of the best options on the market. While the iPad Pro benefits from a robust catalog of easy-to-use iOS applications, the full Windows 10 operating system from Surface Pro 6 allows you to run any Windows program. The Type Cover also has a trackpad, a feature that is very absent in the iPad Pro, since Apple is heavily promoting its tablet as a replacement for a laptop.
The only feature that you will not find on the Surface Pro 6 yet, unfortunately, is a Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C port. The disadvantage is that the omission of the standard by Microsoft can make the blackboard less secure for the future in a year or two, but the advantage is that it is not necessary to carry dongles to connect flash units or current accessories.
