Amazon is set to make another push to become the undisputed king of computing, but with Microsoft’s recent price war against the e-commerce giant, it’s clear that the competition is not just a matter of dollars and cents.
As it stands, Microsoft’s Surface tablet and Windows 10 laptop are both cheaper than the latest Apple iPad and the latest Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
Amazon has even surpassed Microsoft’s high-end PC, the $1,100 Kindle Fire HDX.
With the Surface Book, Amazon is also selling its own brand of Windows 10 PCs that have the potential to compete directly with Apple and Samsung devices.
Microsoft has also been expanding its Windows 10 Mobile devices with the addition of Windows Hello.
The latter features a fingerprint sensor that works on any Surface or Windows 10 PC, making it easy to unlock the device and sign in with your fingerprint.
As of late, Microsoft has even begun releasing the Surface Pro 4 for its employees and customers.
In addition, the company is adding a fingerprint reader to its own Surface Book models, which make them compatible with the latest fingerprint scanners.
But with Microsoft facing a price war, its customers may have less reason to invest in the new machines.
If you want a top-of-the-line, high-performance machine, the best choice is probably to pick up a Surface Pro or Surface Book and take advantage of the new features.
Here are a few tips to help you get a good deal on the new Surface Pro: 1.
Check out the Surface pricing, which varies widely depending on the model.
Check Amazon for current pricing, and compare prices between the top models.
Check the company’s online store for the latest and greatest.
It may be a good idea to search for a product with the most popular price on Amazon, so you know when it’s available.
Shop around for a good price on eBay.
A good deal may not be available right away, so make sure you compare prices from different sellers.
If your budget is tight, consider using a coupon.
There are also many coupon codes to try, such as the $10 off a Surface Book for $300 on Amazon.
The coupon codes are usually valid for one year.
Try out the new hardware.
Microsoft is releasing several new Surface laptops in the coming weeks, but you may have to wait a few months to get your hands on one.
A Microsoft representative told Ars that the company will release the first Surface Pro 3, the cheapest of the lot, in the second half of 2018.
A new Surface Book is also on the way, but it won’t arrive until later in the year.
The company has not yet announced when the Surface line will launch, but expect it to be in the first quarter of 2019.
The new machines are powered by a 14-core Intel Core i7 processor, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, a 4K Ultra HD display, a 128GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive.
Microsoft says the new devices will have “no compromises in terms of performance, storage and design.”
