Microsoft's Surface Pro 7 is down to just $599 right now through Best Buy. The current deal also gets you a Black Type Cover, which is one of the best Surface Pro accessories. Microsoft's flagship 2-in-1 rarely drops to this price, especially with a Type Cover included, so it's a great time to pick up the convertible device..
The model that's on sale for $599 has an Intel 10th Gen Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. Those are admittedly modest specs but should be able to handle everyday tasks like browsing the web and some light productivity work. Even the Core i3 model of the Surface Pro 7 can run many of the best Windows apps.
In our Surface Pro 7 review, the device earned a five-star rating from our executive editor Daniel Rubino. Its form factor, battery life, and USB-C port make it a solid modern convertible. It also earned high marks for its Instant On and resume capabilities.
"The Surface Pro 7, though, is almost everything I want in a portable PC," said Rubino. "Performance is excellent, typing and audio are still the best of the bunch, and battery life gets me through the day."
While the Surface Pro 7 is an impressive device, especially at its current price, its design is dated at this point. If you want a Surface 2-in-1 with a more modern design, you should check out the Surface Pro X. It earns the top spot in our list of the best Windows tablets.

In my opinion, you have to be out of your mind to buy any windows device with an i3 chip no matter how cheap you can buy it, let alone with only 4 gigs of ram, unless of course you like the frustration of owning a system that crawls. Same goes for the Surface Pro X that cannot run regular windows apps.
You've described two very different limitations that in my opinion aren't even close in terms of how much they affect everyday usage. Microsoft continues to improve Windows 10 on ARM and has done a ton of work for Windows 11 on ARM. We've even seen ray tracing and NVIDIA DLSS running on ARM.
