My computer is my lifeline. Living in a rural area I have more “conversations” online than I do with real, live humans. This does not count the hubby as I do talk to him every day – unless he is away. Then I end up with no one to actually talk to but the Farm cats. Let me just say that they are not stimulating conversationalists. It’s important that I have a reliable computer to keep me connected. My current laptop is heading into its third year so I know I will soon be needing to replace it. What I need to consider whether I want to get another one or do I want to get a new tablet like the Microsoft Surface Pro which is a bit more versatile.
Laptop or Tablet?
Each type of device has its pros and cons. I’ve been working on a laptop for years now so I know what to expect there. I would like to learn more about this high powered tablet. The Microsoft Surface Pro has a lot of great features that would work well for me, especially as I hope to be going on more trips with the hubby this year.
- 1 TB of storage
It can work like a laptop with the detachable keyboard. Heck, you can even use a mouse with it if you want. That sounds pretty convenient to me. Not to mention the fact that it doesn’t take up a lot of space so it can easily be used in tight places like on a plane, on a train or in an RV.
But this machine can also function like a high powered tablet. I can read my books, watch movies and all of the other activities I do on a separate, smaller device and more:
- touch screen and surface pen
- sketch, write and erase on the screen
All of this one one sleek piece of technology. Right now you can save $150 on Microsoft Surface Pro 4 i5 128GB so if that isn’t an incentive to buy I don’t know what is. This deal is in play from 12/4 – 12/24/16 so the timing is perfect for grand holiday gift giving. Microsoft gives you free shipping and returns which is pretty spiffy plus with all of the holiday craziness they offer an extended Holiday Return and Exchange Policy to make things easier.

Saving Big on the Microsoft Surface Pro
As I look forward to 2017 I know that I have a lot of exciting things ahead – could one of those be a new computer? Time will certainly tell. If I want to take advantage of this great $150 savings on the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 i5 128GB I’ll have to decide soon since I can only do that through 12/24. It sure does have a lot going for it. I’m going to have to do a bit of thinking.
