Microsoft has iterated on its flagship 2-in-1 to great success, reaching as close to perfection as possible and receiving glowing praise in our Surface Pro 9 review. Available with a choice of a 12th Gen Intel Core i5-1235U or i7-1255U processor alongside a third 5G-enabled variant based on the energy-efficient SQ3 ARM CPU, these customizable devices are temporarily discounted directly from Microsoft with up to $300 in savings.

The offer runs until April 23 and includes multiple configurations to choose from with varying price reductions. Still, you can pick up the powerful Intel i7-1255U variant with a whopping 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a significant discount on its MSRP.

Coat your new 2-in-1 Surface with this platinum finish and load it with an Intel 12th Gen i7-1255U CPU for a $300 discount. Includes a 512GB solid-state drive and 16GB of RAM, plenty to handle demanding tasks on the go.

If you're away from usable Wi-Fi networks in your day-to-day life, the Surface Pro 9 5G variant enables remote networking, and it's available for the same price as the configuration above with the same $300 saving. It offers vastly improved battery life by scaling back other components and switching out the Intel processor for a first-party SQ3 alternative. However, you will benefit from the Microsoft SQ3's additional "neural processing unit" (NPU), which enables AI-powered effects for the built-in cameras like automatic framing with Windows Studio.

Either way, all Surface Pro 9 models support the latest Wi-Fi 6E wireless standard and are compatible with the official Type Cover and Surface Slim Pen 2. If you've been waiting for the best Windows 2-in-1 on the market with a high-resolution 120Hz display, the Surface Pro 9 ticks all the right boxes as a genuine replacement for your laptop.
