These are the best deals you can get on the Surface Pro 8

Microsoft recently launched the Surface Pro 8, and it’s one of the most exciting Surface devices in a few years. After sticking with the same general design since the Surface Pro 4, the Surface Pro 8 finally brings some major changes, including a bigger display and Thunderbolt support. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to upgrade, it seems that it’s finally here. And if you want to find some good deals on the Surface Pro 8, you’ve come to the right place.

There are a few things that make the new Surface Pro 8 a major upgrade. First off, of course, it has a 13-inch display, a notable jump from the 12.3-inch panel of previous models. Not only is it bigger, this 13-inch display now has a refresh rate up to 120Hz, which makes animations and transitions look much smoother. Thanks to the variable refresh rate, it can also save battery when the screen is idle. Plus, it has a higher resolution and it’s brighter, too.

On top of that, it has two Thunderbolt ports, a first for Surface devices after Microsoft consistently refused to adopt Thunderbolt in favor of the Surface Connect port. That means it’s easier than ever to expand the ports on your Surface Pro 8, and you don’t have to worry about Thunderbolt docks not being compatible with other devices. If you already have a Surface Dock, the Surface Connect port is still here as well.

Of course, there are also the expected upgrades, like an 11th-generation Intel Core processor and removable storage, which were present in the business-oriented Surface Pro 7+. Otherwise, everything is in line with previous generations of the Surface Pro, including up to 1TB of storage and 32GB of RAM. Put that all together, and this is set to be one of the best Surface PCs yet. It does come with a much higher starting price of $1,099, but that’s a consequence of much better specs at the base level, too.

Since this is such a big upgrade, there are great reasons to buy the Surface Pro 8. If you’re looking for the best place to do it, we’ve rounded up some of the retailers that have it on offer.
