If you're looking for a new laptop this weekend, you might want to take a look at the Microsoft Store. Until midnight Sunday, Microsoft has cut the price of its Surface Pro 4 tablet-laptop hybrid by 15 per cent, saving you over $600 on the top model.

Every spec of the Surface Pro 4 apart from the base Core M one has 15 per cent cut off its price on the Microsoft Store until midnight Sunday. If we're talking about the top-of-the-line Surface Pro 4 with a 1TB SSD and a Core i7 CPU, that's $607.35 off its (frankly ridiculous) $4049 retail price, slashing that down to a more reasonable $3441.65.

For the Goldilocks version of the Surface Pro 4 -- not too expensive, not underpowered -- you'll save $344.85. That's the Core i7-powered Pro 4 with a 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM, which at $2299 RRP is a significant saving over the otherwise identical Pro 4 with 16GB of RAM for $2699 RRP. Our favourite Pro 4 drops to $1954.15, under $2000 for the first time. That's good value.

    Honestly, I would avoid it.

    The proprietory power plug means you have no way of operating your computer if you ever forget the special brick, or it's broken. You would think "Oh I can charge it via the USB at least" but nope.

    And as for the service Microsoft supply, it's worse than useless. Over it's life mine has broken the PSU, the pen, and the unit itself - each time being hell on earth to try and deal with foreign call centres and arrange repair.

    Nope, these things are bad - and it's mainly that power connection.
