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.
Amazon is the go-to retailer for all kinds of products for many of us, and of course, the Surface Pro 8 is also available there with some solid deals available from time to time. Currently, almost every model is discounted, and you can get up to $300 off on some of them. That includes the configuration with an Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, which is only $1,299.99 right now.
You can also complete your setup with the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard and the Surface Slim Pen 2, which you can find in a bundle below or buy separately. Currently, the Signature Keyboard is almost $40 off its regular price if you buy it separately, but the Surface Slim Pen 2 isn’t available by itself.
Adorama is also a great place to buy the Surface Pro 8, and you can find most models with some sort of discount there right now. The biggest discount is on the top-tier model, which is $200 off its $2,599 MSRP, making it just $2,399. Other models are discounted by $100 to $150.
You can also buy the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard with the Slim Pen 2 if you want a more laptop-like experience with the Surface Pro 8:
Best Buy is the location many of us go to for their electronics, and the Surface Pro 8 is also available to buy there. Right now, a few models are discounted, with the biggest sale being $300 off the configuration with a Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. This is now available for $1,299.99 instead of $1,599.99.
If you want to complete the experience, you can also get the new Surface Pro Signature Keyboard with the Surface Slim Pen 2, though there’s no discount on it at writing time. The Surface Slim Pen 2 is also available on its own.
The Surface Pro Signature Keyboard complements the Surface Pro 8, adding a keyboard and trackpad for a laptop-like experience. This bundle also includes the Surface Slim Pen 2.
B&H Photo is a popular place for buying electronics and cameras, and you can find the Surface Pro 8 there, too. Most models have some sort of discount right now, and while they’re not as big as what Amazon or Best Buy are offering, you can still get up to $200 off the top-tier configuration.
If you want to buy the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard and Surface Slim Pen 2, B&H Photo also has these accessories.
Naturally, the Microsoft Store is also a great place to buy Microsoft products. The Surface Pro 8 is available there right now, and you can easily add a keyboard and pen if you want them. Most models are $200 off right now, but you can save $300 on the configuration with a Core i5, 8GB of RAM, and a 512gB SSD, making it $1,099.99. You can also get $246 off of a Core i7 model with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD.
Newegg also sells the Surface Pro 8 directly and through third-party sellers, who often have some good deals to be found, though they vary a lot. Newegg is selling the Core i7 model with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD for $200 off its regular price, so you can get it for just $1,699.99.
The Surface Pro Signature Keyboard and Surface Slim Pen 2 are only available from third-party sellers on Newegg, but they can sometimes be cheaper that way. You can buy the bundle below, or get the Surface Slim Pen 2 by itself (though it’s currently more expensive than Microsoft’s MSRP).
