There are few hotter products in any category right now than the Microsoft Surface family. These hybrid devices – part tablet, part PC – have given the laptop market the darned good shaking up it needed.

Now, on Amazon Prime Day, you can grab a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 or a Microsoft Surface 3 for a relative pittance.

The 12.3-inch Surface Pro 4 is Microsoft’s current hybrid champ, offering a ridiculously sharp 2,736 x 1,824 pixel display, a super-sensitive Surface Pen stylus, and full Intel i5 power in a compact 786g shell.

Add in an optional Type Cover, and the Surface Pro 4 essentially turns into a top-end Windows 10 laptop without the significant bulk. It’s as close to the ‘best of both worlds’ ideal as you can currently get.

This Amazon Prime Day you can buy a Surface Pro 4 with an i5 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD for just £749.99. That’s over 20% off, depending on which colour of Type Cover you choose.

Oh, didn’t we mention that? Yep, you also get a Type Cover bundled in, in a choice of four colours: Blue, Black, Red, or Silver/Teal. This instantly removes one of the main (and only) gripes we’ve had with the Surface family since its arrival.

Not in the market for something quite so potent? Then the Microsoft Surface 3 is a great bet for an entry-level Windows 10 machine that can be used just about anywhere.

Yes, unlike previous non-Pro Surface models, the Surface 3 doesn’t run on the compromised Windows RT OS – it can run full fat Windows 10. That’s largely thanks to the improved performance of its low-power Intel Atom CPU.

Thanks to a 10.8-inch display and a 622g weight, it’s easy to pop into a bag and carry around with you, making it one of the most versatile devices around. Like the Surface Pro 4, you can plug in a Type Cover and transform this tablet into a full laptop.

Right now, on Amazon Prime Day, you can buy a Surface 3 with 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, and a bundled-in Type Cover for just £449.99 – a saving of some 30%.

Whichever you choose, you’ll struggle to either of these Surface hybrids for a better price after today.
