Best Buy discounts Microsoft Surface Pro X for Black Friday — save $200

Black Friday is still a few weeks away, but you can already start taking advantage of Black Friday deals from various retailers. If you are looking for discounts on gadgets, including smartphones, laptops, and tablets, you can start your search by browsing through this year’s Best Buy Black Friday deals.

Black Friday tablet deals will remain popular this year, as more people realize the benefits of owning a tablet. Not everyone is an Apple fan and will go for the iPad though, and if you are not in the Apple ecosystem, you might want to look at Black Friday Microsoft Surface deals instead. One of the most popular iPad Pro alternatives, the Microsoft Surface Pro X is currently on sale on Best Buy for only $800, down $200 from its original price of $1,000.

The Microsoft Surface Pro X features a 13-inch touchscreen with 2880 x 1920 resolution, and due to its thin bezels, the display looks even larger. Weighing at just 1.68 pounds and only 0.2 inches at its thickest, the device is definitely portable and comfortable to hold, and Microsoft promises up to 13 hours of battery life for typical usage.

The 2-in-1 device is powered by the Microsoft SQ1 processor and up to 8GB of RAM, which makes launching apps and multitasking smooth. It also comes with Windows 10 Home, for a familiar operating system that requires no introduction for most, along with the Windows Hello facial recognition security system.

The Microsoft Surface Pro X also supports the Type Cover, which functions as both a cover and a keyboard, and the Surface Slim Pen, which can be stored and charged on the Type Cover. Both accessories expand the capabilities of the device, but they require separate purchases.

The Microsoft Surface Pro X is the top model of the Surface Pro line of hybrid tablets, and as such is a popular iPad Pro alternative that offers both style and function. Best Buy is offering the Microsoft Surface Pro X with a $200 discount that takes its price down to $800 from its original price of $1,000, as an early Black Friday deal. There’s no telling how long stocks will last, and with Best Buy guaranteeing that it will refund the difference if prices go down further during Black Friday, there’s no reason to hold off on clicking that Buy Now button if you want this 2-in-1 computer in your hands.
