We've gathered up all the Surface Pro deals available today so you can pay the lowest price for one of Microsoft's premium 2-in-1 devices. These laptop and tablet hybrids can cost around $1,000 / £1,000 / AU$1000 or more for the latest models, but with regular sales, you can save a good chunk of money off the recommended price. 

Plus, there are often good value bundles in sales events. We've actually already seen some that include previous-generation models and the near-essential keyboard cover for free in this year's Black Friday deals. There will also be dozens of other Black Friday laptop deals if you decide the Surface Pro isn't the right one for you.

Surface Pro Keyboard

One thing you should check before you buy a Surface Pro is to see whether it comes with a Surface Pro keyboard. This useful accessory is not always included in many of the cheapest Surface Pro deals so keep that in mind when looking at the price. Retailer sites may show it in product images, though, which can be a little misleading. You can pick up the keyboard and cover hybrid separately, so we've included the best prices for it today on this page as well, but many places will allow you to add one to your order at the same time, too.

The latest Surface Pro 9 is set to launch in November and will be the go-to choice as this top-of-the-line laptop is the most recent device on the market. Given its incredibly high price tag and top-end specs, though, you can also consider the Surace Pro 8 or Surface Pro 7 should you want to get more value for money. There may even be a few Surface Pro 6 models still out there before it's discontinued in the Black Friday tablet deals.

If you are looking for something cheaper or smaller, you can take a look at the cutest member of the Surface family: Surface Go. This is, essentially, a smaller and cheaper version of the Surface Pro tablet. There is also the Surface Laptop 5, Surface Laptop 4 and Surface Laptop Go 2 if you don't want tablet functionality and prefer a traditional laptop.

If you decide these aren't the ones for you, then you can also check out all the latest tablet deals and laptop deals available now for a variety of more affordable options, including cheap Chromebooks and similar 2-in-1 devices. We've also got today's best MacBook deals if you want to compare the Surface Pro with Apple's range of premium laptops.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8

The best new Surface model in years

CPU: Quad-Core i5-i7 | Graphics: Intel Iris Xe Graphics | RAM: 8GB-32GB LPDDR4x | Screen: 13-inch, 2880 x 1920 | Storage: 128GB-1TB SSD | Ports: 2x USB-C, 1x Surface Connect port, headphone/mic jack | Cameras: 10MP rear-facing autofocus camera (1080p full HD video); 5MP front-facing camera (1080p full HD video) | Mic: Dual far-field Studio Mics | Weight: 891g | Size: 11.3 x 8.2 x 0.37 inches (287mm x 208mm x 9.3mm; W x D x H)

Faster processors
Gorgeous design
Bigger display
Expensive
Type Cover sold separately

The Surface Pro 8 is the biggest change to the Surface Pro lineup in years. With it comes some design improvements that we've wanted to see for a long time and a significant performance boost. It doesn't stray too far from Microsoft's core range of Windows tablets, but does feel like a new generation device to support the launch of Windows 11.

The aging design of the Microsoft tablet is now long gone, with a modernized look that sports thinner bezels, rounded edges and some of the fastest hardware that's ever been found in a Windows tablet. The ports have also changed, and while we're lamenting the loss of some legacy ports, Microsoft has finally got with the times with the inclusion of Thunderbolt 4.

But being the best Surface Pro in years comes at a significant cost: it's the most expensive device out there. The Surface Pro 8 starts at $1,099 / £999 / AU$1,649, which is much more expensive than it's been in the past. Compare that with the Surface Pro 7 which launched for $749 / £799 / AU$1,249 in 2019. That price increase does come with much-needed improvements, but it makes the tablet a harder sell. Add on to that the fact that the Surface Pro 8 still doesn't come with the Type Cover in the box and you're looking at a big investment all around.

It's tough, then. Still, this is the first time Microsoft has had a true competitor to the iPad Pro since Apple's flagship tablet got its major redesign. And that's an exciting reason to consider it for your next laptop purchase.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Great value last generation model

CPU: Intel Dual-Core i3; Quad-Core i5-i7 | Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics; Intel Iris Plus Graphics | RAM: 4GB-16GB LPDDR4x | Screen: 12.3-inch, 2736 x 1,824 | Storage: 128GB-1TB SSD | Ports: 1x USB-C, 1x USB-A, 1x Surface Connect port, microSDX card reader, headphone/mic jack | Cameras: 8MP rear-facing autofocus camera (1080p full HD video); 5MP front-facing camera (1080p full HD video) | Mic: Dual far-field Studio Mics | Weight: i3 / i5, 1.7 pounds (775g); i7, 1.74 pounds (790g) | Size: 11.5 x 7.9 x 0.33 inches (292 x 201 x 8.5mm; W x D x H)

Speedy processor
New and improved mics to improve Cortana's hearing 
USB-C port 
Battery potentially doesn't hold up against Pro 6
Design remains the same 

The tradition of slight spec bumps in each new Surface model continues with the Surface Pro 7. Such boosts in performance aren't about to go unnoticed, however. Quad-core i5 and i7 processors allow the Pro 7 to handle multitasking even with more demanding programs without so much as a whimper. That means snappier wake times over the sometimes lagging Pro 6. Plus, if you know you don't need to take advantage of these processing boosts, the basic i3 dual-core processor with 4GB of RAM is back to save you some pennies in cheaper Surface Pro deals.

Other than the USB-C port proudly sitting on the Pro 7, you won't be able to tell the models apart. There's still no Thunderbolt 3 in the picture though, which puts fantasies of speedy dual-screen sessions to bed. Remember, Surface Pro 7 deals don't necessarily come with the keyboard you'll see in its photography, though we are seeing more bundles offering the two together these days. 

If you're looking for an amazing tablet for precision multitasking and more than capable processing speeds then these Surface Pro 7 deals could be for you. If you have the Surface Pro 6 already (and you're not fussed about ports that don't carry Thunderbolt 3), it looks like you're most of the way there anyway.

Microsoft Surface Pro X

A bigger display on an experimental business tablet

CPU: Microsoft SQ1 | Graphics: Microsoft Adreno 685 | RAM: 8GB - 16GB LPDDR4x | Screen: 13-inch, 2880 x 1,920 | Storage: 128GB - 512GB SSD | Ports: 2x USB-C, 1x Surface Connect port, Surface Keyboard connector port, 1x nano SIM | Cameras: 10MP rear-facing autofocus camera (1080p full HD and 4K video); 5MP front-facing camera (1080p full HD video) | Mic: Dual far-field Studio Mics | Weight: 1.7 pounds (774g) | Size: 11.3 in x 8.2 in x 0.28 in (287 mm x 208 mm x 7.3 mm)

Excellent design
Larger screen
Considerably more expensive
Apps struggle with ARM processor

The Surface Pro X launched just a month after the cheaper Surface Pro 7 and brings a larger display to the party in an experimental shift towards a new ARM processor developed by both Microsoft and Qualcomm. It's a good looking laptop for sure, with a gorgeous profile, slimline chassis and excellent display - however it's not going to suit the vast majority of consumer needs. 

Apps are still struggling to get to grips with the new processor which means things can run a little slow, and though you're picking up an extra USB-C port here, you're losing a headphone jack, USB-A port, and micro-SD card slot in the mix. That's a lot of functionality out the window, though you might make good use of the new 10MP 4K camera on the rear. 

All in all, we'd pick this up on sale if you're looking for more RAM than the conventional Surface Pro, and a bigger display for multi-tasking or streaming, but you'll find better Surface Pro deals on the smaller model above.

Microsoft Surface Pro 6

Microsoft Surface Pro 6

Discontinued model but sometimes cheap

CPU: Intel Core i5-i7 | Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 620 | RAM: 8GB-16GB | Screen: 12.3-inch, 2,736 x 1,824 | Storage: 256GB SSD | Ports: 1 x USB 3.0, mini DisplayPort, microSDXC card reader (UHS-I), headphone/mic jack | Cameras: 8MP rear-facing, auto-focus camera (1080p HD); 5MP front-facing, 1080p HD camera | Weight: 1.7 pounds (771g) | Size: 11.5 x 7.9 x 0.33 inches (292 x 201 x 8.5mm; W x D x H)

Better battery life
Better configurations available for less than the Surface Pro 
Not worth an upgrade if you own the previous version

The 2018 entry in the Surface family is the Microsoft Surface Pro 6, which follows up from 2017's numberless Surface Pro, which itself followed the Surface Pro 4. We know, let's just get through this. Five, Microsoft! That's the number you couldn't remember!

The Surface Pro 6 is now discontinued and the newer devices are more powerful, anyway. We'd suggest only really looking at this one if any of the limited remaining stock is massively discounted (we're talking $600 / £500 or less) and you don't mind some slightly older tech. If something like no USB-C is a deal breaker, though, we'd definitely recommend shopping for more recent models.

Microsoft Surface Pro Type Cover deals

Just to remind you again, most Surface Pro deals do not come with the Type Cover keyboard, despite most retailer images blatantly showing the Surface Pro with one attached. Always check the product description to see if one is bundled in.

If you're looking to pick one up separately, you can take a look at the lowest prices from around the web just below. The Type Covers in the comparison chart are compatible with all of the Surface Pro models in this article. The newer 'Signature Type' replaced the original model and has a soft textured fabric finish around the keys in muted colors.

Which is the best Surface Pro to buy?

We'd recommend sticking to the Surface Pro 7 or 8 in your quest for the highest value savings – especially now the Surface Pro 6 is discontinued. Plus, it's worth spending the extra cash to get the latest tech and more powerful components that are often lacking in the older models. 

Sometimes there's a discount on a previous generation machine with solid specs, but this is a rarity these days. Either way, we’ve tracked down all the best Surface Pro deals on all the devices available to buy today across multiple generations and models so you get the most bang for your buck.

Is the Surface Pro price worth it?

If you're looking for a Windows tablet then the Surface Pro is really your only option outside of 2-in-1 convertible laptops. That means that the Surface Pro price is typically higher than that of a laptop running the same specs, but you are getting the full functionality of a tablet device here - as well as LTE options with the Pro X as well.

You are still picking up laptop-level specs here, though - even if that line between tablet and PC has been blurred in the last few generations of devices. That means you're paying a little more for the luxury of that flexibility between a tablet design and a laptop level of performance, which does start to justify that higher Surface Pro price as well. 

These days, the standard MSRP of the Surface Pro 7 isn't too competitive. You'll find laptops and even tablets running similar or equivalent specs for less cash. However, once those prices start falling you can pick up some excellent Surface Pro deals that will offer up the best of both worlds without breaking the bank.
