Best cheap Microsoft Surface Pro deals for September 2021

Everybody knows Microsoft for bringing the Windows OS into homes and offices around the globe, but over the last decade, this software titan has also enjoyed considerable success in the PC hardware sector with its Surface devices. The Surface was first introduced as a fairly straightforward Windows tablet, but has since evolved into a full lineup of laptops, 2-in-1s, and even a dual-screen phone. The tablets still rank high among our favorites, though, so if you’re shopping for a Windows-powered iPad alternative (and one you can use as a laptop when you pair it with a Type Cover keyboard), check out this roundup of the week’s best Microsoft Surface Pro deals.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8

The newest model of the ever-popular Microsoft Surface was recently announced at a Microsoft event. The new Microsoft Surface 8 is reportedly twice as fast as the previous model. Microsoft shrunk the bezels on the side of the screen to increase the screen size to 13 inches, making it the largest Surface yet. A 120Hz refresh rate is an optional upgrade. They did remove the two traditional USB ports, leaving only two USB-C ports. They did keep the headphone jack, of course (wink wink, Apple).

The ew Microsoft Surface 8 retails at $1,099, the same price as a relatively upgraded Surface Pro 7. All in all, that’s essentially what the Surface 8 is: a nice upgrade on a classic. The Surface 8 is available for pre-order right now and will start shipping October 5.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Microsoft Surface Pro 7

This fall we saw the release of the updated seventh iteration of the Microsoft Surface Pro along with the innovative Surface Pro X. For this refresh, Microsoft continued its conservative approach and decided not to tinker too much with a winning formula. It was a good strategy: The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 has everything we love about the Pro 6 with some subtle improvements like a ninth-gen Ice Lake Intel Core CPU and the welcome addition of a high-speed USB-C port.

Along with those relatively minor (but very nice) upgrades, the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 still boasts that beautiful 3:2 PixelSense touchscreen and great build quality, and it also works beautifully with a Type Cover keyboard for pulling double duty as a 2-in-1 ultrabook laptop. One of our few gripes is that it still doesn’t come bundled with that keyboard cover, but Surface Pro deals and ongoing sales should help to alleviate that.

Microsoft Surface Pro X

Microsoft revealed two new Surface devices last year, launching the all-new Surface Pro X alongside the Surface Pro 7 refresh in late October and early November. The Pro 7 was just a small update of the mainline Surface Pro series, but the Microsoft Surface Pro X delivered the long-needed facelift that we’ve been waiting for: Most notably, Microsoft finally cut down those chunky bezels surrounding the display, which was one of our few persistent complaints with the regular Surface Pro models (including the newest Pro 7).

It’s not quite as fast as the Surface Pro 7 in terms of specs, but the main trade-off here is that the Microsoft Surface Pro X is thinner and lighter. In fact, it’s the slimmest Surface yet at just 0.2 inches, and those leaner bezels allow for more screen real estate with a larger 13-inch 1920p PixelSense touchscreen (for an extra 0.7 inches). The Surface Pro X is the complete package, but it’s also the most expensive new member of the Surface family, so savvy shoppers would be wise to hunt around for the numerous deals during seasonal sale events.

Microsoft Surface Go

Microsoft Surface Go Review

If we’ve whetted your appetite for these 2-in-1s but, for various reasons, you don’t want to dump a huge wad of cash for one of the Surface Pro models, then the Microsoft Surface Go is definitely worth a look. The 10-inch Surface Go is a more budget-minded alternative to the high-end Surface Pro lineup, packing a smaller display, simpler hardware, and Windows 10S (a pared-down version of the Windows 10 OS). We’re not going to claim it’s the best Surface that money can buy — it’s not — but for around 400 bucks, it’s very, very hard to look this cheap gift horse in the mouth.

The Surface Go is a great option for anyone looking for something a bit smaller than a Surface Pro or for shoppers who want something affordable (be it as a secondary 2-in-1 for travel or a device for basic web browsing and streaming), and the above Microsoft Surface deals make it even sweeter. Microsoft recently released the second-gen Surface Go, and while our review team felt that it was a bit too pricey at launch, it’s another option to consider if you want some hardware upgrades and can find a good deal.
