Microsoft Surface Pro 6 i5 128GB Platinum Type Cover Bundle $1249 @ Microsoft ($1299 @ JB Hi-Fi)

850

Hi Everyone!
Long time lurker, first time poster,
Just noticed this deal today looking for a new school laptop,
Ended up paying below 1200 after negotiation,
It’s the cheapest price on the market even before you include the added Type Cover (worth $200 RRP)
Picked up two today,
Edit : If you don’t want to negotiate, Microsoft are offering $1249 for the same bundle, credits to ASHGOON,
The link is here for that https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/p/surface-pro-6-platinum-128...
Hope this helps and don’t be afraid to ask any questions,
Thanks for Reading!

      Don’t think so buddy,
      That has 4 GB of Ram whereas this one has 8,
      The models are confusing but good find anyway!

    Tempted to upgrade my SP3 but no usb c in this sigh

    • +1 vote

      Yeah it sucks, but it’s a great computer for work or school, but you’re best off waiting until they add usb-c I reckon, which should be the 7

      •  

        Who knows though because we've been expecting the next generation to have usb c since generation 2

  •  

    Nice price if <$1200 per bundle unit (only if they still come with the Surface Pen).

    Also available from The Good Guys and Harvey Norman (http://staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/search.cgi?q=surface+pro+bun...).

    Pay less with discounted gift cards (eg JB-HiFi, Harvey Norman), although that means no extra credit card shopper protection if you intend to pay with a credit card that has one.

      Yeah that’s actually a really good find mate,
      I’ll change the title,
      I paid $1200 but that’s a good as deal,
      Cheers!

        20% off if you have a student email ending with edu with unidays making it $999!

          Mate it doesn’t work I tried it,
          Good find though

        • +1 vote

          Unfortunately its 20% off select models, so you can get the Surface Pro 6 without a keyboard but with a "free" case for $1079. Adding the case brings it up to $1329.15 even with the discount.

          OP's deal is better.

      •  

        Just be sure to check which typecover it is. The Microsoft looks like the cheaper black one whereas the JB seems to be the signature Alcantara.

  • +1 vote

    I don't care about the type cover. I want the pen to use the tablet as a drawing tool :((

    •  

      The Pen is inexpensive compared to the cover, but I feel your pain man.
      Not many bundles include the pen unfortunately though

    Uhh you work for JB and you negotiated down to $1,200? something doesn't make sense, are you associated or not?

    • +2 votes

      I’m not,
      Someone must have associated me accidentally or the box may have been selected already,
      I’m trying to fix it up,
      Thanks

        The someone was you. :) All fixed.

    I have this exact package. Got it in December for working away from the office. First time I've had a windows tablet. Worklife changing.
    It could only be better if it had LTE inbuilt. I cannot understand why that is missing from most of the range.

    Throughout uni I switched between the Surface Pro and the 12" MacBook. They're both great. I've been using the 12" MacBook for a couple of years now due to iOS development, but when the Surface Pro gains Thunderbolt 3 I'll be making the switch. Shame it didn't come with the 6th iteration.

  •  

    that's pretty cool, but any chance of a similar deal on the 256GB?

  •  

    Is this the black version of the Surface Pro 6 ?

    Not commenting on this specific post, but seeing a LOT of long time lurkers first time posting. General rule of the internet is one post history equals dodgy. Here at ozbargain out seems to be a badge of honour.

      Afterpay?

      •  

        Yes and no, i rather find a good deal for it then go on finance or afterpay. I rarely pay retail for technology. I have the 4th gen i5 but its not cutting it for photoshop or after effects. :(

        •  

          after effects might be more about your GPU than CPO. Not sure what Photoshop needs these days as a primary resource, but a shed load of RAM use to fix most problems.

    Hey there,

    First time comment, long time user.

    I keep reading mention of 7th and 8th Gen. How best am I to know which one Microsoft, Harvey or JB HiFi are selling?

    Eager to pick one up today from a store in Brisbane and don’t want to get stitched up.

    Also, how are you finding warranty and years usage out of these devices?

    Cheers
    Tom

  •  

    Thanks BraphB, can confirm that JB hi Fi was able to match the price of Microsoft online promo price at $1249 (free black type cover included) even though they listed $1349 without type cover. I topped up $50 to upgrade the free black type cover to burgundy as a gift for the missus.

  •  

    Are these at all usable on your lap? Like on the train?

    I realise there are probably purposes to the names laptop and surface

    If you don't mind the NFL logo like me then these keyboards are great in value, they have backlit and comparable with my Pro 6
    Grabbed mine for $65 including P&H
    https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B01JZ7JY3W/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i...

    •  

      How did you get it for $65?, it shows $87.38 for me.

      •  

        They have different logo at different price. The one i got before was the aboriginal (sorry not a NFL guy) but even at $87.38, i think it still is a lot cheaper than here

  •  

    how did you manage to get a further discount below 1200?

  •  

    No offence to the OP at all but these devices are overpriced junk.

    -Only have a 120GB, which if your kids are like mine will fill that up in no time.
    -They break easy (costs around $500-600 to replace a screen if not covered by warranty), the metal chassis/base of the unit is so tight against the glass screen that a slight bump will crack the touch screen.
    -Have a 1 out of 10 breakdown/rebuild option for upgrade or self repair.
    -Firmware updates often fail to apply/reboot and the CPU/Fan keeps running, kids then close the device up thinking its off and chuck in their bag, then it overheats.

    I'm sure there are better options out there than this, save yourselves grief.

    •  

      -They are expensive, but they're very portable which is where the price comes.
      -Has an SD Card Slot. Can also use OneDrive
      -No doubt fragile, so good protection is essential.
      -Definitely not user serviceable.
      -This specific model has no fans and is passively cooled.

    •  

      you're not wrong with the memory - hope microsoft/jbhifi offers a similar deal for the 256, i feel that should be the minimum

      •  

        I try to buy low GB laptops. Forces me to delete or backup files to cloud services.

  •  

    I believe these are great tablet/laptop combo. Nice deal with the keyboard, Op. I purchased one in Nov last year Black i7, 16GB RAM with 512GB for $2100. Black keyboard for another $140 and Cobalt pen for $95. I wanted powerful and portable Windows tablet. I am very happy with my purchase.

  •  

    It looks like ShopBack has a 1.5% cashback on surface products. So would get back about $15 if you buy from Microsoft.

  •  

    cash rewards on microsoft website is 5.6% and this is 8th generation processor.

  •  

    Okay I am going to buy one of these. What do you guys think is the better deal JB or Microsoft. I have to buy on credit card as it's a business purchase and can't take advantage of gift card discounts.

  •  

    Hmmmm. This or MacBook Pro 2017?

  •  

    Hi team,

    Wondering if people have been using this only as a tablet? How's the experience?

    I'm looking to buy a tablet, was thinking of getting an ipad but can't decide considering I've been always an android user and might not be able to deal with Apple's limitations…

    • +1 vote

      It's pretty expensive just to use as a tablet, but that's a matter for you. The full windows functionality in a compact and fast package is the major selling point here.

      You could of course use this as a tablet and then have the option to make it more functional later. If you're an Android user like me you'd prefer this over an iPad but it's not amazingly user friendly as a tablet.

  •  

    For those chasing a deal.

    Walk into JB HiFi name your price at $1200 there and then.

    Cut to the chase and you are more likely to get a deal
