We've gathered up all the best Surface Pro deals available right now so you 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$1,000 or more for the latest models. But you can save a good chunk of money off the price in special sales events such as the Black Friday deals. We expect there will be lots of stellar Black Friday laptop deals over the next couple of months and we'll be on hand to share the very best ones with you.

Just be aware that many devices do not include the very useful Surface Pro keyboard cover. 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 Surface Pro keyboard cover deals on this page as well.

If you decide these aren't the ones for you, then you can also browse 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 to the range of premium laptops from Apple.

Microsoft Surface Pro 9

The modern Surface is powerful but pricey

Exquisite design
All-day battery life
Powerful and versatile
High starting price

The Microsoft Surface Pro 9 is a refined version of previous Surface Pro laptops. With a more polished look and curvier edges, it also has a bright and colorful, high-resolution, 13-inch Pixel Sense screen that looks great. A thin and light laptop, even when adding on the type cover and Slim Pen 2, it's ideal for portability if you need to take it between coffee shops and workplaces regularly. 

Anyone considering buying it will need to decide between a 12th-generation Intel Core i5 / i7 processor or the version with a Microsoft-Qualcomm-designed SQ3 processor which offers built-in 5G support and more efficient battery life that we awarded four stars out of five in our Microsoft Surface 9 review.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 9 starts at $999 / £1,099 / AU$1,649 for a 12th generation Intel Core i5 model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB SSD. That price can rise to $2,599 / £2,599 / AU$4,149 for an Intel Evo 12th generation Core i7 processor with 32GB of RAM and 1TB SSD. For the 5G model, prices start at $1,299 / £1,299. If you’re willing to pay for it, you could end up with a far more powerful laptop than its sleek exterior suggests, with others able to snap up a lightweight device for less.

Depending on the model you choose, the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 can be reasonable value for such a thin and lightweight 2-in-1 laptop. However, it's almost certain we'll see more Microsoft Surface Pro 9 deals emerge over time if you want to go bigger, specs-wise.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8

Previous generation model is still a worthwhile purchase

Faster processors
Gorgeous design
Bigger display

The Surface Pro 8 was the biggest change to the Surface Pro lineup in years when it originally launched. It features 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 ageing 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 gotten 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 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, as we say in our Surface Pro 8 review, 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 even with the newer model now available.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Older model that can still be good value

Speedy processor
New and improved mics
Better value when on sale
Lacklustre battery
Design remains the same 

The tradition of a slight specification bump in each new Surface model continued with the Surface Pro 7. Even though we thought it was a somewhat underwhelming upgrade in our Surface Pro 7 review, such boosts in performance didn't go unnoticed. 

The quad-core i5 and i7 processors allowed the Surface Pro 7 to more comfortably handle multitasking – even with more demanding programs. That means snappier wake-up times over the now-discontinued and sometimes lagging Pro 6. Plus, if you didn't need such a high-end and high-performance device, the basic i3 dual-core processor with 4GB of RAM model was a great way to save a few pennies and bag a better bargain.

Nowadays, though, there's very limited availability of the Surface Pro 7. That said, we do sometimes see the slightly refined Surface Pro 7+ model on offer at retailers – and it's usually got the Type Cover Keyboard bundled in for free, too. That's the best way to get the most for your money if you don't mind older tech.

Microsoft Surface Pro Type Cover deals

Just to remind you, 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.
