Microsoft Surface Pro deals can offer some considerable discounts on that otherwise lofty MSRP, which is a relief seeing as these premium Windows tablets can reach $1,000+ price tags fairly easily. The Surface Pro price certainly isn't intended to appeal to an entry level buyer, but with cheaper specs seeing dramatic discounts and bundles offering up free keyboards and other accessories, you'll be able to find an excellent Surface Pro deal to keep those costs down.
If you're after a flexible but still powerful device, the Surface Pro 7 is the go-to choice. The top of the line Pro X is technically the most recent device on the market, but with some incredibly high price tags and specs that can easily be found in the smaller Pro 7, you'll get far more value in the mid-range here.
We’ve tracked down all the best Surface Pro deals on the Pro 7 model, but we're also tracking the latest sales on both older and newer devices. As these older tablets become discontinued, though, those prices can start to re-inflate, which is why we'd recommend sticking to the Pro 6 or 7 in your quest for the highest value savings. Not only that, but we've seen some excellent Prime Day deals on the Pro 7 in the past, which means prices are looking particularly good as we round the corner to this year's savings.
Looking for something a bit smaller? You'll want to take a look at the cutest member of the Surface family, the Surface Go – a smaller and cheaper version of the Surface Pro tablet.
Important note: Most Surface Pro deals, especially the cheaper ones, do not come with the Type Cover keyboard attachment or Surface Pen. Retailer sites can be a bit misleading as they'll generally show the device with the keyboard, so be sure to check the full description. We've included a price comparison chart for the keyboard and pen below too if you need to pick them up separately. Most retailers have the option to add one to standalone deals too.
The best Surface Pro deals and prices
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.
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.
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!
Available in a new black color for the first time (or the regular silver), the Surface Pro 6 prices should start to waver with the release of the latest Pro 7 model. Processing is a little older but will see you through day to day activities easily, with a design and feel that is very similar to the newer model. If having no USB-C is a deal breaker, though, we'd recommend shopping for more recent models.
You'll find prices on the Surface Pro 6 deals above are similar to the Surface Pro 7. However, you're getting substantially more storage and RAM for your money here which means a better offer overall if you're happy with an older release.
If the Surface Pro deals above are a little pricey, you might find better luck with the 2018 Microsoft Surface Go. The mini 10-inch version of the tablets above, the budget option doesn't pack the same punch under the bonnet with an Intel 4415Y processor paired with either a 4GB RAM 64GB SSD combo or a meatier 8GB RAM / 128GB but it is considerably cheaper. The Type Cover Keyboard and Surface Go mouse are usually sold separately sadly.
You could get a significantly more powerful laptop for the same price, but if the extremely lightweight design and portable form factor appeal for you on the go types, this may well be worth a look.
Surface Pro Type Cover deals
We can't iterate it enough, but 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 you're getting one 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 have a soft textured fabric finish around the keys in muted colors.
Surface Pen deals
If you're buying a Surface Pro deal that doesn't include a Surface Pen, there's nothing stopping you from buying one separately. Take a look at our price comparison chart below for the latest prices from a wide range of retailers.

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.
