Microsoft's Surface Pro X is down to a starting price of just $800 at several retailers. Microsoft, Staples, and Best Buy all have discounts on the lightweight 2-in-1. The model running on the SQ1 processor with 8GB of RAM is the most affordable option, but you can also save $300 on the highest-end model with an SQ2 processor and 512GB of storage.
When a big deal starts, sites, including ourselves, often point out that we "can't believe" the current deal. That's not exactly the case with the discounted price of the Surface Pro X right now. We've seen the device with a starting price of $800 before, but it's still a good deal. The Surface Pro X is the best Windows tablet. It has a thin and light body, a sleek design, and delivers good battery life. It's the closest thing to an iPad competitor running Windows.
Microsoft is clearly focusing on the Surface Pro X right now. The company has a new video ad campaign for the 2-in-1 and also showed the Surface Pro X running Windows 11 when it announced the new operating system.
The Surface Pro X runs Windows 10 right now but should be able to upgrade to Windows 11 when the new operating system comes out. Windows 11 is optimized for touch, so it should help get the most out of the Surface Pro X.
You can use the Surface Pro X like a laptop by picking up its Type Cover. It also works well with the Surface Slim Pen, which is one of the best Surface Pro X accessories.
