These are the best deals you can get on the Surface Pro X
The Surface Pro X is Microsoft’s premium ARM-based tablet, and one of the best ARM-based Windows tablets in general. It’s one of the most powerful Windows on ARM laptops, and it has a thin and light design and a great display. There are lots of good reasons to want a Surface Pro X, so if you’re looking for one, we’ve rounded up some of the best deals you can find on it.
Powered by a Qualcomm SQ1 or SQ2 processor, The Surface Pro X delivers solid performance overall, and it has other high-end specs to boot, including up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. It’s also got a super sharp 2880 x 1920 display, a 5MP front-facing camera, and a 10MP rear camera, making this a great device for browsing the web and staying in touch with friends.
The Surface Pro X also benefits greatly from the Windows 11 upgrade. With Windows 10 on ARM, the Surface Pro X could run x86-based (32-bit) apps via emulation, but 64-bit apps (x64) were unusable. That would include things like Photoshop, and many apps that only support 64-bit architectures now. Now, Windows 11 adds support for 64-bit app emulation, so all kinds of apps now work with the Surface Pro X. Plus, Microsoft is making it easier to make parts of apps run natively on ARM, easing the transition for developers and improving performance for users.
While it hasn’t been refreshed with new internals since 2020, Microsoft recently launched a version of the Surface Pro X without LTE support, bringing the base price down to $899. This new model is sold alongside the LTE versions, and it’s available at most retailers. If you’ve been wanting a cheaper version of the Surface Pro X, this might be the perfect opportunity. So what are the best deals you can get on the Surface Pro X?
Amazon is one of the most popular places to buy just about anything, and of course, it’s also a good place to buy your new PC. Most models of the Surface Pro X are currently only available through third-party sellers, but you do get some deals compared to the official Microsoft pricing. The top-tier model with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage is $350 off at writing time, making it cost just $1,149. Keep in mind this model does not have LTE, however.
If you want to complement the Surface Pro X with a keyboard and a Surface Slim Pen 2, you can buy it below. You can also buy the Surface Slim Pen 2 by itself, or the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard by itself. The Poppy Red version of the keyboard is over $30 off right now, making it cost less than $150.
The Surface Pro Signature Keyboard turns your Surface Pro X into a more traditional laptop, and the Surface Slim Pen 2 is a great tool for drawing and taking notes by hand.
Another good place to buy the Surface Pro X is Adorama. This retailer has most models available right now, including Wi-Fi-only versions and LTE models. Most models are in line with Microsoft’s MSRP, but it’s a reputable seller and lots of configurations are available.
If you want to turn the Surface Pro X into more of a laptop experience, you can get a big $7 discount on the Surface Pro Signature + Slim Pen bundle, making the whole package just under $200. The same bundle is also available with the Surface Slim Pen 2, but it’s more expensive and the Surface Pro X doesn’t support tactile signals in the new pen anyway.
One of the best places to buy all kinds of electronics is undoubtedly Best Buy. The website often has a wide selection of products and you can even pick up items at a retail store if you want. Best Buy is selling the Wi-Fi-only models alongside the LTE versions, so you have to pay attention to what you’re getting. However, there are some good deals on the Surface Pro X right now, specifically those with the Microsoft SQ1 processor, with the base model starting at just $699 ($200).
To complete the experience, you can add the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard and the Surface Slim Pen 2. This gives you a traditional laptop experience, plus a pen that’s great for taking notes and digital artists. You can also get the Surface Slim Pen 2 or the Signature Keyboard separately if you prefer that. You can get the bundle with both below:
Another popular place for buying electronics is B&H Photo. The store focuses on media creation and consumption, which the Surface line is very popular for. Again, there are multiple configurations of the Surface Pro X already available. The LTE and Wi-Fi only models are available separately, so you can more easily choose what you want. All the Wi-Fi-only models are currently $200 off, though not every configuration is available here.
The latest Surface Pro Signature Keyboard with the Slim Pen 2 bundle is also available using the link below. You can buy the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard separately, and it’s currently discounted by over $30 depending on the color you choose. The Surface Slim Pen 2 is also available separately at MSRP.
You can always buy from Microsoft directly, and that’s usually one of the best places to buy Surface products. Buying from Microsoft usually means you get the most configuration options to choose from, though the most popular ones are usually on other retailers, as well. Still, if you can’t find the one you want anywhere else, this is the place to visit.
Right now, many of the Wi-Fi-only models are $200 off, though it doesn’t apply to the base model. You can add a Surface Pro Signature Keyboard and Surface Slim Pen 2 easily, but there are no discounts on those right now.
Newegg is very well known for selling computers and parts, and you can find the Surface Pro X there, too. Currently, you can only find it through third-party sellers, but that also means you can get some good deals. You can currently find the top-tier model, with 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and LTE support, for just $1,199, down from its official MSRP of $1,649.99.
Newegg doesn’t sell the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard and Slim Pen bundle directly, but you can get it from third-parties. It’s $10 off its base price, which isn’t a huge discount, but it’s certainly welcome. The Surface Pro Signature Keyboard is available at $20 below MSRP, but the Surface Slim Pen 2 is around $6 more expensive.
Staples is another well-known retailer, mostly focused on office supplies. That includes laptops, so of course, the Surface Pro X is there as well. Right now, some models are $200 off, specifically the ones without LTE support. You can check it out below, or browser around to find other models.
This Surface Pro X model comes with the Microsoft SQ2 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage in a slim package. This model doesn't include LTE, but some others do
Unfortunately, the new Surface Pro Signature Keyboard bundle with the Slim Pen 2 isn’t currently available at Staples, but you can buy the bundle with the original Surface Pen below. It’ll work identically with the Surface Pro X. The Signature Keyboard is available by itself, but the Surface Slim Pen 2 is out of stock right now.
Another retailer you might be interested in is Tiger Direct. This retailer is more so geared toward business customers, but you can find the Surface Pro X there as well. Because it’s aimed at businesses, this version of the laptop runs Windows 10 Pro (with the upgrade to Windows 11 naturally being supported). This makes it a bit more expensive, but it’s around the same price as Microsoft charges for the Surface Pro X for Business. You can buy it using the link below:
This Surface Pro X model comes with the Microsoft SQ2 processor, LTE, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage in a slim package. Plus, it runs a Pro edition of Windows, which has extra features.
Neither the Surface Signature Keyboard or the Surface Slim Pen are currently available at Tiger Direct.
