You'll find all the best Microsoft Surface Pro deals and prices right here, so you can pick up the 2-in-1 tablet for a fraction of its usually lofty MSRP. That's excellent news if you're looking for a portable but powerful device but you're not too enthused by the $999 starting prices on the Surface Pro X. We typically see much cheaper prices on Surface Pro 7 deals, and retailers are starting to offer more bundles as well, so you can take home the keyboard accessory at the same time. 

We’ve tracked down all the best Surface Pro deals on the Pro 7 model, but we're also tracking the latest sales on older models as well. Sensibly-priced stock of models older than 2018 seems to have dried up now, so we've decided to keep things simple so you can get the best value for money and avoid overpaying for outdated technology.

Looking for something a bit smaller? Then 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. Microsoft set forth to make a professional tablet so good, you’ll be able to replace your laptop and we believe it's done just that with its most recent models.

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 X deals

A bigger display on an experimental tablet

CPU: Microsoft SQ1
Graphics: Microsoft Adreno 685
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)
Reasons to buy
+Excellent design+Larger screen
Reasons to avoid
-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 below.

The best Surface Pro 7 prices

The best Surface Pro for most users

CPU: Intel Dual-Core i3; Quad-Core i5-i7
Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics; Intel Iris Plus Graphics
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)

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)
Reasons to buy
+Speedy processor+New and improved mics to improve Cortana's hearing +USB-C port 
Reasons to avoid
-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.

The best Surface Pro 6 prices

2018's entry might see the best upcoming discounts

Storage: 256GB SSD

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)
Reasons to buy
+Better battery life+Better configurations available for less than the Surface Pro 
Reasons to avoid
-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!

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.

CPU: Intel Core m3-i7
Graphics: Intel HD graphics 620 - Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640
RAM: 4-16GB
Screen: 12.3-inch, 2,736 x 1,824

Weight: 1.73 pounds
Size: 11.5 x 7.93 x 0.33 inches (W x D x H)
Reasons to buy
+Cheaper in the US now+Same form factor as newer models
Reasons to avoid
-Limited power

Note: The 2017 Surface Pro is currently unavailable in the UK

You'd think after the Surface Pro 4 Microsoft would have gone with a Surface Pro 5? But no, just to confuse matters, and searching shoppers, this 2017 installment is simply called Surface Pro. 

It its day it offered a decent mid-range power spec, but in 2020 this older model feels a little underpowered. Still, you'll be able to run it with light everyday use, and because it offers the same form factor as later models it will still feel like a premium device. 

You can still use the Surface Pen and Type Cover keyboard here, though you'll still have to pick them up separately, so overall these 2017 Surface Pro deals are well worth a look if you're looking for something lightweight and cheap for browsing the web, streaming some Netflix, or checking emails in style.

Reasons to buy
+Way more affordable than the Pros+An extremely portable computer
Reasons to avoid
-Lacks power

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.

  • Microsoft: regularly offers Surface Pro 7 bundle deals
  • Best Buy: also offers frequent Surface Pro 7 bundle deals
  • Amazon: better for straight price cuts and renewed items than bundles
  • Walmart: Low prices but bundles don't offer as much value
  • Newegg: good price cuts and also stocks older models

When will Surface Pro bundles include the Type Cover keyboard?

Some Surface Pro bundles do include the Type Cover keyboard, usually at a price of around $699 for the entry level model. These sales are usually found during traditional seasonal discount periods, so keep an eye around national holidays, Amazon Prime day and Black Friday. We have, however, seen Surface Pro deals offering up the keyboard bundle for as little as $599 on the i3 configuration of the Pro 7, so check Microsoft and Best Buy for the return of this deal in particular.
