Editor's note: Amazon is no longer offering the Prime Day price on the base Surface Pro 6 model, but it's still available for significantly less than the $900 list price.
Microsoft's Surface lineup demands a premium price for its premium devices, and if you were waiting on a price drop for the stellar Surface Pro 6, Amazon Prime Day had you covered. The latest 2-in-1 Surface, available in a few different configurations, was discounted significantly. The entry device, normally priced at $899, could be had for $749, which is a savings of $150. And though Prime Day ended on Tuesday, July 16, that price is still in effect as of the following morning. You also no longer have to be a Prime member to take advantage of these savings. We're not sure how long it will last, though, so it'd be a good idea to act fast if you're in the market for a new Pro 6
Premium 2-in-1 PC
Beautiful, versatile Windows PC
The versatile Surface Pro 6 is a premium 2-in-1 for anyone who likes a knockout display, pen support, and the performance to handle a day's work. Grab it on sale during Prime Day for significant savings.
The Surface Pro 6, our choice for the best 2-in-1 available now, is a truly versatile device with a premium build quality. It's built to work primarily as a tablet with a 12.3-inch touch display with 2736x1824 resolution and 3:2 aspect ratio, but you can attach a Type Cover with touchpad and keyboard. Just pop out the built-in kickstand on the back of the tablet for a standard notebook experience. Sound interesting? Be sure to check out the Surface Pro 6 and Type Cover bundle available for $800.
The beautiful touch display works with the Surface Pen (sold separately), and you can expect a high-end inking experience with tilt support and 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. If you're an artist or just love sketching out notes and ideas, this will make a great combination.
The model on sale for $749 includes for hardware an 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor (CPU), 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB solid-state drive (SSD), making it ideal for productivity tasks, web browsing, watching movies and TV, or fulfilling your artistic ambitions. You can also expect all-day battery life from a single charge, allowing you to leave your adapter behind when you head to the office. If you're thinking 128GB isn't enough space for all your data, there's also a similar model with 256GB SSD that's knocked down to $872 from the regular $1,199 price.
If you'd rather grab something with a bit more power and storage, a model with 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD is available for $1,230, on sale from the regular price of $1,499.
