[Deal] $430 Certified Refurbished Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (256 GB/8GB/i5-4300U) @AMZN; Linux, OSx86, ChromeOS Support!

MS Surface Pro3 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

First: No Keyboard & No Pen Included…. But this is for $430, not close to the late 2014 $1299 MSRP.

Second: it ships with Windows 8.1! It will hopefully self update to 10 on it’s own! [Make your USB recovery media] We really don’t want you stuck on 8.1!

What you get, a Certified Refurbished MS Surface Pro 3 w/256SSD, 8GB Ram, Haswell Low-Voltage i5-4300U all for $429.99!

Sure you can pick up a “cheap” laptop in this price range, but you are buying nice hardware; so unless you’re arguing for a Thinkpad keyboard, or a Dell XPS refurb at this price point, definitely take a look at this Refurb deal.
