    I noticed on the UK microsoft store they were selling surface pro i5 256 with the signature type cover for £999... when the surface pro i5 on it's own was £1124 on a "special deal £100 off"... ummm ok then.

    so I clicked buy.

    It all happened very quickly. :eek::eek::eek::eek::Do_O

    It turned up today and I have to say it's a nice device. I know there may be a new one on the way but this one is still two generations newer than I'm used to and I was still in love with my SP3.

    The i5 is disconcertingly quiet. I guess I'd got so used to the hissing sound from the i7 SP3 that now this makes no sound I find it odd!! I love the bigger screen and rounded corners and the alcantara type cover feels lovely too. Here's to another fabulous 4 years with my new device :)

    @Moonsurface ,

    Congrats on that new Surface. You’ve adopted a good one.

    Thanks for the heads-up on the UK discount, I'm still on the SPro3 but I feel like a refresh.

    Does the signature type cover fit okay with the 3?

    Looks exactly the same as the pro 4 cover which I was using on my Pro3 but has an alcantara finish so it's more luxurious.

    I think the discount is because of new models coming in Oct as the pro 2017 has been out a year now. I'm not worried as it's plenty of device for me :)

    I'm thinking there won't be much of an upgrade in October really, apart from a faster CPU, which isn't really that useful to me.

    I can't imagine they'd reduce the price on the new models either, as they'd need some headroom for subsequent Surface Go models, so the current i5 is a pretty good buy now I think.

    Sounds sensible :)

    Very happy with the i5 so far. I am so totally unused to not hearing any sound though - it's really odd. I never actually realised how much noise the i7 SP3 makes - I mean it's not that loud but it was pretty constant.
