There’s truly no time like the present to take the leap into a freelance career. But I must warn you, as a remote worker, you’re going to need a device that’s reliable and flexible enough to handle any environment. One day you may want to work from the comfort of your couch, while the next you might find yourself at a local coffee shop. You’ll need a device that can do both, like a Microsoft Surface Pro.
Unfortunately, in the midst of switching career paths, you may not be prepared to drop thousands on a new device. That’s okay; you don’t have to. You can save $1,000 on this factory-recertified Microsoft Surface Pro 4.
It’s natural to feel skeptical about buying used gadgets, but these aren’t just any used gadgets. These are factory recertified, meaning they were inspected and restored by the actual manufacturer. They’re also rigorously tested and any imperfections are completely fixed. Oh, and the warranty is totally reset. So in other words, the manufacturer considers it as good as new — so why shouldn’t you?
The Surface Pro 4 features a generous 12.3-inch PixelSense display, a speedy processor, 256GB of storage space for your essential files, photos, and videos, and impressive nine-hour battery life. Perhaps the most intriguing feature, though, is the 150° angle kickstand. This simple feature allows you to work (or play) comfortably just about anywhere hands-free. Of course, you can also connect a keyboard and a mouse via Bluetooth or grab a Surface Pen for the ultimate remote work setup.
Typically, Surface Pro 4s retail for about $1,500, but you can scoop this recertified one on sale for just $499.
