The Most Affordable Surface Pro Deals In June 2022

We have gathered all of the best Surface Pro deals right here so you can get one of Microsoft’s premium 2-in-1 devices for the best price. The most expensive models of these premium hybrid tablets cost around $1000 / £1000 or more. However, with regular Surface Pro sales from Microsoft or other retailers, you can usually save a significant amount of money off the recommended price. There are also some great value bundles that include a free keyboard cover and other accessories.

While older models are still available for purchase, the latest Surface Pro 8 is the preferred model. The most recent device on the market is a top-of-the-line laptop and tablet hybrid. Given its exorbitant price and high-end specifications, you should consider the Surface Pro 7 or even a Surface Pro 6 if you want to get more bang for your buck.

We’ve found all of the best Surface Pro deals on all of the devices that are currently available for purchase, spanning multiple generations and models. One word of caution for older models: it’s sometimes worth spending a little more money to get the latest technology and more powerful specs. That is why, if you want to save the most money, we recommend sticking to the Pro 7 or 8.

If you’re looking for something less expensive or smaller, the Surface Go is the cutest member of the Surface family. This is essentially a scaled-down and less expensive version of the Surface Pro tablet. If these aren’t the ones for you, you can also browse all of the latest cheap tablet deals and cheap laptop deals for a variety of other options.

The most affordable Surface Pro 8

The most impressive new Surface model in years

CPUQuad-Core i5-i7
GraphicsIntel Iris Xe Graphics
RAM8GB-32GB LPDDR4x
Screen13-inch, 2880 x 1920
Storage128GB-1TB SSD Ports: 2x USB-C, 1x Surface Connect port, headphone/mic jack 
Cameras10MP rear-facing autofocus camera (1080p full HD video); 5MP front-facing camera (1080p full HD video)
MicDual far-field Studio Mics
Weight891g
Size11.3 x 8.2 x 0.37 inches (287mm x 208mm x 9.3mm; W x D x H)

The Surface Pro 8 represents the most significant update to the Surface Pro lineup in years. It brings some long-awaited design enhancements as well as a significant performance boost. It doesn’t deviate too far from Microsoft’s core line of Windows tablets, but it does feel like a new generation device to support the release of Windows 11.

The Microsoft tablet’s aging design has been replaced with a modernized look that features thinner bezels, rounded edges, and some of the fastest hardware ever found in a Windows tablet. While we lament the loss of some legacy ports, Microsoft has finally caught up with the times by including Thunderbolt 4.

However, being the best Surface Pro in years comes at a high price: it is the most expensive device available. The Surface Pro 8 starts at $1,099 / £999 / AU$1,649, which is significantly higher than previous models. In comparison, the Surface Pro 7 cost $749 / £799 / AU$1,249 when it was released in 2019. Although the price increase includes much-needed improvements, it makes the tablet more difficult to sell. Add to that the fact that the Surface Pro 8 still does not include the Type Cover, and you’re looking at a significant investment all around.

It’s difficult, then. Nonetheless, this is the first time Microsoft has had a true competitor to Apple’s flagship tablet since its major redesign. And that’s a compelling reason to think about it for your next laptop purchase.

The best Surface Pro 7 offers

Last generation model with excellent value.

CPUIntel Dual-Core i3; Quad-Core i5-i7
GraphicsIntel UHD Graphics; Intel Iris Plus Graphics
RAM4GB-16GB LPDDR4x
Screen12.3-inch, 2736 x 1,824
Storage128GB-1TB SSD
Ports1x USB-C, 1x USB-A, 1x Surface Connect port, microSDX card reader, headphone/mic jack
Cameras8MP rear-facing autofocus camera (1080p full HD video); 5MP front-facing camera (1080p full HD video)
MicDual far-field Studio Mics
Weighti3 / i5, 1.7 pounds (775g); i7, 1.74 pounds (790g)

The Surface Pro 7 maintains the tradition of minor spec bumps with each new Surface model. Such improvements in performance, however, are unlikely to go unnoticed. The Pro 7’s quad-core i5 and i7 processors allow it to multitask with even the most demanding programs without a hiccup. That means faster wake times than the occasionally sluggish Pro 6. In addition, if you know you won’t need these processing boosts, the basic i3 dual-core processor with 4GB of RAM is back to save you money on cheaper Surface Pro deals.

The only difference between the models is the USB-C port on the Pro 7. However, there is no Thunderbolt 3 in the picture, which puts dreams of quick dual-screen sessions to rest. Remember that Surface Pro 7 deals do not always include the keyboard seen in the photos, though more bundles are offering the two together these days.

These Surface Pro 7 deals could be perfect for you if you’re looking for an amazing tablet with precision multitasking and fast processing speeds. If you already own a Surface Pro 6 (and aren’t concerned with ports that don’t support Thunderbolt 3), you’re already halfway there.

The best Surface Pro X

An experimental tablet with a larger display

CPUMicrosoft SQ1
GraphicsMicrosoft Adreno 685
RAM8GB – 16GB LPDDR4x
Screen13-inch, 2880 x 1,920
Storage128GB – 512GB SSD
Ports2x USB-C, 1x Surface Connect port, Surface Keyboard connector port, 1x nano SIM
Cameras10MP rear-facing autofocus camera (1080p full HD and 4K video); 5MP front-facing camera (1080p full HD video)
MicDual far-field Studio Mics
Weight1.7 pounds (774g)
Size11.3 in x 8.2 in x 0.28 in (287 mm x 208 mm x 7.3 mm)

The Surface Pro X, which debuted just a month after the cheaper Surface Pro 7, adds a larger display to the mix as part of an experimental shift towards a new ARM processor developed by both Microsoft and Qualcomm. It’s a beautiful laptop, with a beautiful profile, slimline chassis, and excellent display – but it won’t meet the needs of the vast majority of consumers.

Apps are still learning how to work with the new processor, so things can be a little slow. You also lose a headphone jack, USB-A port, and micro-SD card slot in the process. That’s a lot of functionality gone, though the new 10MP 4K camera on the back might come in handy.

Overall, we’d recommend picking this up on sale if you want more RAM and a larger display for multitasking or streaming, but the smaller Surface Pro model above offers better Surface Pro deals.

The best Surface Pro 6

The most affordable but out-of-date model

CPUIntel Core i5-i7
GraphicsIntel UHD Graphics 620
RAM8GB-16GB
Screen12.3-inch, 2,736 x 1,824
Storage256GB SSD
Ports1 x USB 3.0, mini DisplayPort, microSDXC card reader (UHS-I), headphone/mic jack
Cameras8MP rear-facing, auto-focus camera (1080p HD); 5MP front-facing, 1080p HD camera
Weight1.7 pounds (771g)
Size11.5 x 7.9 x 0.33 inches (292 x 201 x 8.5mm; W x D x H)

The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is the Surface family’s 2018 entry, following on from 2017’s numberless Surface Pro, which in turn followed the Surface Pro 4. Let’s just get this over with, shall we? Microsoft gets a five! That’s the number you can’t seem to recall!

The Surface Pro 6 prices should start to sway with the release of the latest Pro 7 model, which is available in a new black color for the first time (or the regular silver). Processing is a little older, but with a design and feel that is very similar to the newer model, it will easily get you through your day-to-day activities. However, if the lack of USB-C is a deal-breaker, we recommend looking for more recent models.

Prices on the Surface Pro 6 deals above are comparable to those on the Surface Pro 7. However, if you’re happy with an older release, you’ll get significantly more storage and RAM for your money here, making it a better overall deal.

Surface Pro deals
CPU1.6GHz Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y
GraphicsIntel HD 615
RAM4-8GB
Screen10-inch, 1,800 x 1,200
Storage64-128GB SSD 
Ports1 x USB-C 3.1, MicroSDXC card reader, Surface Connect port, headset jack 
Cameras5MP (1080p video) front-facing webcam (Windows Hello face login); 8MP (1080p video) rear-facing autofocus camera
Weight1.15 pounds (0.52kg)
Size9.6 x 6.9 x 0.33 inches (W x D x H)

If the Surface Pro deals listed above are too expensive, the 2018 Microsoft Surface Go might be a better option. The budget option, the mini 10-inch version of the tablets above, doesn’t have the same punch under the hood with an Intel 4415Y processor paired with either a 4GB RAM 64GB SSD combination or a meatier 8GB RAM 128GB SSD combo, but it is significantly less expensive. Unfortunately, the Surface Go mouse and Type Cover Keyboard are usually sold separately.

For the same price, you could get a much more powerful laptop, but if the ultralight design and portable form factor appeal to you the go types, this could be worth a look.

Surface Pro Type Cover

We can’t stress this enough: most Surface Pro deals do not include the Type Cover keyboard, despite the fact that most retailer images show the Surface Pro with one attached. Always check the product description to see if one is included.

If you want to buy one separately, you can see the lowest prices from around the web just below. The Type Covers in the comparison chart work with all of the Surface Pro models discussed in this article. The ‘Signature Type’ model, which replaced the original, has a soft textured fabric finish around the keys in muted colours.
