Deal | Microsoft Surface Pro X tablet with SQ2, 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD on sale for a limited time
Unlike the regular Microsoft Surface Pro 9, the sister model with the X moniker has not been refreshed in quite a while as the Redmond-based software giant has decided to include an ARM-based model in its main line of Windows tablets. This may be one of the reasons why the SQ2-powered Microsoft Surface Pro X can be found on sale with considerable discounts on a fairly regular basis these days.
In this particular instance, BuyDig is selling one of the top-end configurations of the second generation Microsoft Surface Pro X with the custom SQ2 SoC as well as 16GB of RAM and a large 512GB SSD for just US$599 including free shipping. This limited-time deal is only valid for the classic silver color variant of the Windows tablet, but please note that this offer does not include the Surface Pen or compatible Type Cover. Fortunately, a much more affordable third-party alternative to the expensive original keyboard can be found on Amazon for around US$50.
In consideration of the steeply discounted price, the Microsoft Surface Pro X can be a decent choice for users who value the high-quality chassis and decent 13-inch IPS screen with a practical aspect ratio of 3 by 2. The tablet also comes with a comparatively sharp webcam with 5 megapixels. However, the versatile slate still struggles with the emulation of x86 apps under Windows 11, which can make it feel quite sluggish at times. Therefore, this deal is best-suited for buyers who can live with these limitations and may want to use it as a secondary device for some light tasks such as MS Office, web browsing or media consumption.
