Microsoft's Surface Pro X recently gained an option for a model without LTE connectivity. That device is designed to lower the entry cost of the thin-and-light Windows 2-in-1. But right now, you can get a model with LTE connectivity for even less than a Wi-Fi-only model, thanks to a deal for a renewed Surface Pro X. Amazon Renewed models start at just $634, but the best deals are on the 8GB/256GB model ($691) and 16GB/256GB model ($782).

A Surface Pro X with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage normally costs $1,100 through the Microsoft Store. That means you can save almost $480 by getting an Amazon Renewed model. The version with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage is a bit more difficult to compare because the discounted device on Amazon runs on the older SQ1 processor, while the similarly spec'd option through Microsoft has the SQ2 CPU. Amazon's deal is still a nice option, but it's important to note the difference in processors.

The Surface Pro X is a thin convertible from Microsoft. It has a thin body and can attach to accessories such as the Surface Keyboard. It runs Windows 10 on ARM (and is upgradable to Windows 11 on ARM). That helps the device get better battery life and turn on instantly, but it does have its drawbacks. Our executive editor Daniel Rubino said that the Surface Pro X is "a perfect PC but only in the right hands." It's important to check out his Surface Pro X review to see how Windows 10 on ARM affects app compatibility.

Amazon Renewed products are pre-owned and professionally inspected, tested, and cleaned. The listing promises no visible cosmetic imperfections, and that batteries will exceed 80% capacity compared to new pieces of hardware. These devices are also backed by the 90-day Amazon Renewed guarantee. Amazon details the terms of this guarantee, but the long-in-short is that you can replace or return the device within 90 days if you are unhappy with it.
