Deal | Microsoft Surface Pro 9 Windows tablet with Core i5 and 16GB RAM now on sale for 35% off
Despite the high prices, Microsoft's Surface Pro line of tablets is still a viable choice for users who value the versatility of a full-fledged Windows machine that can serve more purposes than Apple's rather limited iPadOS. Additionally, prospective buyers of the latest Surface Pro 9 can now take advantage of a mentionable sale discount for one of the most popular configurations of the 13-inch slate.
More specifically, the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 with the Intel Core i5-1235U Alder Lake processor, 16GB of soldered LPDDR5x memory, a decent 120Hz QHD IPS display and an upgradable 256GB SSD is now on sale for US$999 at Best Buy, which is the result of a significant discount of US$540 or roughly 35 percent relative to the lofty MSRP. Most importantly, this deal price already includes the black version of Microsoft's official Signature keyboard for the Windows tablet, which currently retails for more than US$130 on Amazon and arguably makes this offer for the Surface Pro 9 even more intriguing.
As always, bargain hunters should check out our comprehensive written review and accompanying YouTube video for more details on the Surface Pro 9. Although the slate has received rather minor upgrades over the past few years, it still features a well-made chassis and a smooth 120Hz touchscreen. The convertible further supports Thunderbolt 4 and the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard, but the Redmond-based software giant has unfortunately dropped the 3.5mm headphone jack and does not include a practical SD card slot. However, this deal might still be worth consideration as it offers one of the lowest prices yet for the Windows tablet, but shoppers should also note that the upcoming Black Friday discounts could potentially be even higher.
