Microsoft drops price of Surface Pro 8 to $799 in Black Friday sale


Early Black Friday deals are continuing to appear on major US retailer websites, and now, Microsoft has joined the fray.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 8, a sleek and capable tablet-laptop hybrid device, is currently on sale. If you visit the Redmond giant’s online store, you can grab a Surface Pro 8 with a price of $799, saving at least $300 (roughly 27%) on its typical starting retail price of $1099.  

The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is a thin, lightweight hybrid device suitable for work and study. Available in a variety of different finishes and specifications, the 13″ touchscreen tablet is designed for productivity — although you may have to invest in additional accessories such as a keyboard and stylus, depending on how you want to utilize the hybrid machine.  

The lowest price point available is $799 for a platinum model with an Intel Evo Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and 128GB SSD storage. However, if you want more power in your device, you can still save $300 on a Surface Pro 8 equipped with an Intel Evo Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and 1TB SSD storage — normally priced at $2199, but now available for $1899.
