Microsoft's Surface Pro X is one of the best Windows tablets, and right now you can pick one up for as much as $150 off through Best Buy. There are discounts on all Surface Pro X models, though how much you save depends on the version you order. The Surface Pro X with an SQ1 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage is down to $800, which is $100 off its normal price. The highest-end model with an SQ2 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage ($1,500) is $150 off.

The Surface Pro is a thin convertible 2-in-1 that can stay connected to the internet through LTE. It features a 13-inch display that's surrounded by thin bezels. The design of the Surface Pro X is so liked, that Microsoft decided to emulate it when creating the Surface Pro 8.

Microsoft's Surface Pro X is a thin convertible 2-in-1 that gets good battery life. It's a versatile device that works with a detachable keyboard and the Surface Pen. Right now, you can pick one up for as little as $800 at Best Buy.

Note that this deal on the Surface Pro X does not include a keyboard. Microsoft makes a couple of keyboards that work with the Surface Pro X, the most affordable of which costs $140.

While the Surface Pro X is a well-reviewed tablet, it does have some limitations due to it being a Windows on ARM PC. The 2-in-1 can run many of the best Windows apps, but some of the applications will have to run through emulation. It's important to ensure that the Surface Pro X is able to run the apps you need before purchasing the device.

  • Seems like buying a Surface Pro 8 is the much better buy over the X given their price points. The X needs to come with a keyboard or have a lower price point.
  • Surface Pro 8 is $200 more (on sale, -$100) at $1,000. They're obviously pushing Pro X as the old i3 variant of Surface Pro 8, of which there is no consumer model.
  • Pretty poor buy. It's still not a fully fledged, x86 Surface. It's also VERY dated, given they're 2-3 generations (in terms of performance) behind Apple's M1. It's a (very) mildly overclocked variant of their 2019 offering. These things should be nearing $600 now and readied to be replaced.
  • Take Surface Go 2 (or 3, even) with Core i3 ($630), put in a much larger, higher-resolution display, give it more battery life, and much better multi-core performance (with similar single-core) and you have Surface Pro X for $800.
    "These things should be nearing $600 now and readied to be replaced."
    As already mentioned, the Surface Go 3 with i3 and 8/128GB is $630 without keyboard 🤷‍♂️ It wouldn't make sense to price this below that especially since the Pro X's hardware is much better (better speakers, better camera, faster storage, way nicer screen). I mean, you can even upgrade the Pro X's SSD yourself.
  • Don't mind these benchmark gazers and their M1 obsession. The M1 is meaningless if you run Windows. The Pro X has long battery life with LTE, a huge selling point if you travel a lot. Just make sure you stick to ARM binaries.
  • I'm torn between the Go 3 and the Pro X.
    I need an always connected device to do light office work and join Teams meetings.
    Love the battery life of the Pro X, but the price tag of the Go 3 is hard to beat...
