According to ITHome, you can see the new Surface Pro 4 refresh has received the 3C certification, meaning that the machine is ready to be unveiled by Microsoft’s executives in just a couple of days. While the announcement of the machine might not encourage the average user to make a purchase, the advantage that it might bring to the table is the fact that the price of the original Surface Pro 4 is reduced considerably to warrant a purchase for the end-user.

Keep in mind that though Microsoft introduces several discounts and deals revolving around the Surface Pro 4, its original price retail price has been stuck at $799, and looking at so many unique machines unveiled and ready to sell, it does not look like a ‘value product’ for the masses.
