If you’re considering buying a new Surface device, now is a great time. Microsoft released plenty of new hardware in 2021, but significant discounts are already available on several products.
The pick of the deals can be found on the Surface Pro 8, Microsoft’s flagship 2-in-1. At the Microsoft Store, you can currently buy the Intel Core i5 model with 8GB RAM and a 512GB SSD for just £1,179. That’s a £120 discount on the RRP, and only £10 more than the best price we saw on Black Friday.
You will need to buy accessories separately, but the Surface Pro 8 Essentials Bundle lets you combine it with a Type Cover and 1-year subscription to Microsoft 365. The model mentioned above isn’t available here, but you can still save £32 on the total cost.
However, the great deals don’t end there. The Surface Laptop 4 is Microsoft’s latest and greatest thin and light laptop. It now starts at an impressive £599 - that’s almost budget laptop price for a flagship device.
If you’re based in the US, the biggest discounts can be found on more expensive models. There’s currently $320 off the Intel Core i5 model with 8GB RAM and a 512GB SSD – now £979. This means you now get top-tier performance without the price tag, although $300 off the top-spec i7 model (now $1399.99) is also tempting.
The brand-new Surface Laptop Studio isn’t yet available outside the US, but that hasn’t stopped Microsoft slashing prices. It’s worth highlighting the Intel Core i5 model with 16GB RAM and a 512GB SSD – that's available for $1,599.99 with a $200 discount. Significantly, it now means you’re paying the usual RRP of the entry-level model but getting double the storage.
With the Laptop Studio coming to the UK and other markets in early 2022, we can only hope similar discounts aren’t too far away. But if you’re interested in a top-class 2-in-1 or one of the best laptops you can buy, now is a great time to invest.
