Microsoft's Surface Pro 7 is one of the best Windows tablets. Even though a Surface Pro 8 could be announced as soon as next month, the Surface Pro 7 remains a solid device. You can pick a Surface Pro 7 up right now through Best Buy for under $600, and that price includes a Type Cover.

Best Buy's most affordable deal for the Surface Pro 7 is for the Intel Core i3 model with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. These are admittedly modest specs, but if you have a light workload and enjoy the form factor of the Surface Pro 7, the entry-level model can handle web browsing and general productivity.

If you need something more powerful, the Intel Core i5 model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is on sale for $700. This is more of a Goldilocks device, hitting the sweet spot between affordability and power.

If you need to bump up even further in terms of specs, there are plenty of options available. Best Buy has deals on models all the way up to the Intel Core i7 model with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage ($1,300).

The Type Cover is pretty much an essential Surface Pro 7 accessory. It allows you to use the device like a laptop but can detach from the PC to let you use the Surface Pro 7 as a tablet. Many bundles include a Type Cover, so make sure to check if one is included in a deal whenever you purchase a Surface.
