You can now buy the latest model for only $700 but be fast — we can’t see this offer lasting long. After all, it is one of the best Microsoft Surface deals out there right now.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 is a great device if you’re keen to embrace the two-in-one lifestyle. It has a 12.3-inch touchscreen that can be detached so you can use the device as either a laptop or tablet.

Whether you’re writing up a paper for school, preparing a presentation for work, or just choosing to relax with your favorite streaming service, the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 will do the job admirably. Thanks to its touchscreen, you can even use it to sketch out a great drawing while relaxing on the couch before switching back to laptop mode for more professional studies. It’s a really flexible way of using a computer.

It looks good, too, and is super slim as are all the Microsoft Surface devices, meaning you won’t have to worry about struggling to find room to store it. That’s doubly useful when taking it out and about with you. Even better, it offers an all-day battery life with up to 10.5 hours of juice before you need to find a charging point. You won’t need to worry about being near a power socket too often with this great two-in-one.

Ideal for most purposes, the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 is an even better deal when it’s on sale. At the moment, you can buy it at Best Buy for only $700. That’s a savings of $260 off the usual price.

Google Pixel 4a pre-orders go live with August 20 availability

Google’s newest phone, the Pixel 4a, is finally available for pre-order. Having blown by its expected May launch, the handset arrives with a wallet-friendly $350 price tag.When much of the fanfare and advertising for phones tends to center around flagships and devices approaching $1,000, Google’s latest is a fraction of the price. Nevertheless, it still has more than enough hardware and modern software to satisfy the needs of the masses.At just $350, the Pixel 4a runs Android 10 and largely features the same camera experience that’s found in the Pixel 4. Moreover, it also has a headphone jack and a bigger battery than the standard model.Android 105.81-inch FHD+ displayQualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor6GB RAM128GB storage12.2-megapixel dual-pixel rear camera8-megapixel wide-angle camera3140mAh battery3.5mm audio jackAs to why the Pixel 4a is less than half the price of the Pixel 4, there are plenty of reasons. It’s just up to the buyer to determine whether it’s worth spending the extra money.With that said, the Pixel 4a does not have wireless charging, nor does it have the soft-touch glass back and water resistant protection. Instead it has a polycarbonate body to keep price down.AvailabilityThe Pixel 4a is available for pre-order in the US at Google Store and on Google Fi where it can be purchased unlocked at just $350. It will be more widely available to customers on August 20 through the Google Store, Best Buy, Amazon, and more. Additionally, US carriers will offer the phone, including Google Fi, US Cellular, and Verizon.Customers who purchase the Pixel 4a receive three month free trials of YouTube Premium, Google Play Pass and Google One.Interestingly enough, the Google Pixel 4a appears to be offered in black only through Google’s online store. Other colors expected in the lead-up to announcement included white and blue. Perhaps various carriers and retailers will have different options.

Google begins dropping details on Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5

Indeed, Google is ready to share details about the next few models in the pipeline.According to Google, the Pixel 4a (5G) and the Pixel 5 will arrive “this fall” and both will feature 5G connectivity. Moreover, Google is already sharing its expected price for the former, putting it at just $499.Whether the true difference between the standard 4a and the 5G-ready version is 5G support remains unclear.Google often debuts its flagship Pixel phones in October, and that would definitely fit in thethis fall” timeline. However, with the ongoing pandemic, and the fact that the Pixel 4a arrived nearly three months later than expected, it’s hard to say for sure.As Google tells us both the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 will be available in the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, and Australia.If you’re interested in learning more about either of these phones, you can sign up to receive updates.
