A couple of days ago Microsoft announced some deals on the Surface Pro 8. Many of those discounts are still active. However, Best Buy is currently beating that price by $100 on a very specific configuration of the tablet. You can get this version of the Surface Pro 8 on sale for $1,299.99. Not only is that $100 better than Microsoft, it's actually $300 off the device's normal price. This is a featured Deal of the Day for Best Buy, so the price won't last forever or even as long as Microsoft's ongoing sale.

A powerful version of the Surface Pro 8 that includes an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and a 256GB solid state drive. This version does not include the Type Cover, but you can spend your savings on that and still have some cash left over.

We gave the Surface Pro 8 4.5 stars out of 5 in our review and called it The Best. Daniel Rubino said it "finally hits its full potential with the all-new redesign for 2021. With Thunderbolt 4, optional LTE, 120Hz display, new haptic Slim Pen, 11th Gen Intel, and a new graphite colorway this is a worthwhile upgrade."

This version in particular includes a 13-inch touchscreen display with 2880 x 1920 pixel resolution and that 120Hz refresh rate that helps it look so good. Plus you get an Intel Core i7-1185G7 processor, 16GB DDR4 RAM that's great for multi-tasking, and a 256GB solid state drive that is super fast. Since the Pro 8 is on the Intel Evo platform, you also know it has a great battery life (up to 16 hours) and Thunderbolt 4 ports with super-fast 40 Gbps data transfer speeds.

The Pro 8 is also designed to work well with the improved haptic Slim Pen 2 and Surface Pro Signature Keyboard. These are extra accessories you'll most definitely want to spend your savings on for the full Surface experience.
