Just like clockwork, Microsoft is back with another generation of its flagship 2-in-1.
The Surface Pro 9 arrived just over a year after its predecessor, and there are a few key changes despite it being a relatively minor update. Most are as a result of the new ARM-based Qualcomm chip, but there are still Intel models if you’d prefer.
With the device now on sale in the US and UK, here’s everything you need to know if you’re considering buying one.

When was the Surface Pro 9 released?
The Surface Pro 9 was announced at Microsoft’s hardware event on 12 October 2022, alongside the Surface Laptop 5 and Surface Studio 2+.
Despite the device becoming available in the US on 25 October, UK customers had to wait until 8 November. But it’s on sale in both countries now.
How much did the Surface Pro 9 cost at launch?
With the addition of ARM, there are lots of different Surface Pro 9 models to choose from. The starting price is the same as last year in the US, but £100 more expensive in the UK (due to Microsoft ditching the 128GB SSD model). Here’s the full range of configurations:
- Core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD – $999.99 (not available in the UK)
- Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD – $1,099.99/£1,099
- Core i5, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD – $1,399.99/£1,399
- Core i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD – $1,599.99/£1,599
- Core i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD – $1,899.99/£1,899
- Core i7, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD – $2,199.99/£2,199
- Core i7, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD – $2,599.99/£2,599
- SQ3, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD – $1,299.99/£1,299

- SQ3, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD – $1,899.99 (not available in the UK)
Even that starting price puts in in flagship laptop territory, and you’ll need to pay anywhere from $139.99/£129.99 to $299.99/£259.99 extra for a keyboard cover. Most 2-in-1 laptops are more affordable.
