Amazon’s 2020 Prime Day sale has come to an end but there’s still a range of remaining Prime Day deals you can score before the well dries up for good. That said, there are still some great offers floating around if you know where to look (and you’ve got a quick mouse finger), and it’s still your best chance before Black Friday and Cyber Monday to find huge discounts on the latest and greatest tech goodies and gadgets.
This year, that included the entire family of Microsoft Surface tablets, laptops, and 2-in-1 convertibles, all of which have been discounted for Prime Day (and not just at Amazon, either). Many of them are also still in stock if you act fast, so if you’re looking to get your hands on one of the best and most unique Windows machines on the market, read on to see the hottest Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals that are still up for grabs as we enter the final stretch of the sale.

Should I shop on Prime Day or wait until Black Friday?
Black Friday is only a month apart from Prime Day this year. This means that if a certain Microsoft Surface device runs out of stock, it might not see a significant restock in time for Black Friday or even Cyber Monday. Shopping at the end of November might also be risky because Black Friday’s heavy demand might result in hefty shipping delays. You might not even get your goods in time for Christmas. Prices will also stay pretty uniform for the two events, so if you’re holding off for a bigger discount during Black Friday — don’t. Take advantage of these Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals before your favorite goes out of stock.
Are any Prime Day Microsoft Surface deals too good to be true?
As with any big purchase, always make sure to do your research before you buy your new laptop. There are a lot of deals this Prime Day and you don’t want to end up with a Microsoft Surface device that’s not to your liking. Make sure to read a few reviews and check the ratings before deciding on your new device — this will save you a lot of disappointment. Also, make sure what your new device is offering, sometimes gadgets with bigger discounts have fewer features. Know what you’re getting yourself into before spending your hard-earned money.
How to choose a Microsoft Surface device
With a couple of new releases joining the Microsoft roster, there are a lot of different Surface devices to choose from. Here are a few buying tips to keep in mind before you shop this Prime Day.
A traditional device
If you’re looking for a more conventional laptop or even an easy-to-use desktop, go with the Surface Laptop 3, Surface Laptop Go, or the Surface Studio 2.
The Surface Laptop 3 is a touchscreen-equipped, durable laptop that has a powerful processor and an all-day battery life. There’s also enhanced privacy features like face sign-in. Plus, it’s really light with thin bezels making it a great choice for commuters and students alike. If you’re looking for a cheaper laptop go with the Surface Laptop Go. It’s a light, sleek laptop and gives you everything from long battery life to a decent pixel-packed 12-inch display. The Surface Studio 2 on the other hand, is an extremely sturdy desktop. It has a 28-inch touchscreen that’s jam-packed with 13.5 million pixels to give you a brilliant, clear, and vivid display. The modern design allows you to move the display to an almost table-top position giving you the impression that you’re working on a giant tablet and not a traditional desktop. It also carries a hefty Intel Core processor making it the perfect multi-tasking machine.
Great 2-in-1 devices
The Surface Pro 7, Surface Pro X, and Surface Go 2 all fall within this category. The Surface Pro 7 is probably one of the most popular 2-in-1 tablets on the market. It comes with a USB-C port and a solid 10.5-hour battery life that make it a great convertible laptop for work or play. It’s also extremely light, weighing in below 2 pounds, and comes equipped with a 12.3-inch Pixel Sense display. The Surface Pro X is a slight upgrade to this device, now carrying 15 hours of battery life and an edge-to-edge 13-inch touchscreen. It has an extra USB-C port and features the new Microsoft SQ processor. If you’re willing to spend the extra money, go with the Microsoft Pro X. The Surface Go 2 is the cheapest option of all starting at only $399. It only carries a 10.5-inch display and has lower RAM compatibility, but for its low price, it’s still pretty sturdy. It also features a 10-hour battery life and Intel UHD graphics for a clear display. If you’re looking for a secondary device or don’t require a very powerful 2-in-1 device, go with the Surface Go 2.
A mobile 2-in-1 device
The Surface Duo is one of the newest additions to the Microsoft family, and probably one of the coolest. Its two 5.6-inch screens and 360-degree hinge compatibility make it a powerful, handy, and most of all, multifunctional mobile device. Now you can watch a show and answer emails at the same time! It also has a great all-day battery life and the Android 10 operating system allows this device to act as a decent multitasker. That said, it does have a rather bulky design and a sub-par camera, not adding up to its $1,400 starting price. If you do decide to spend the money, buy this ‘tablet phone’ for its double screen compatibility, not for its hype factor.
