Ahead of this year’s Australian end of financial year, Microsoft are slicing 15% off the cost of picking up either the Surface Pro 7 or Surface Laptop 3 through the Microsoft store. If you’ve been waiting for a decent deal to pick up one of the more recent Surface PCs, this might be the right time to pull the trigger.
The catch here is that you're buying the business-grade versions rather than the regular consumer hardware. These are ordinarily priced a little bit higher but include the same hardware and a few bonus software features.
Previously priced at AU$1849, you can now grab the Surface Laptop 3 for Business for as little as AU$1571. This works out to around AU$275 in savings. Other spec variants start at a higher pricepoint but end up offering more savings. For example, the i7/16GB Surface Laptop 3 for Business with 512GB of storage has had its price-tag trimmed by over $500 from AU$3499 to AU$2931.

As for the Surface Pro 7 for Business, the 15% discount knocks around $209 off the price for the cheapest variant. Rather than paying AU$1399, you end up paying AU$1189. Click here to take advantage.
