Microsoft Store Black Friday deals are already live, with epic discounts on Surface laptops, tablets and Xbox gear galore. Case in point: right now, you can save up to $650 off the Surface Laptop 5, and up to $800 off the Surface Pro 9. If you're in the market for a new Microsoft device, these are just a couple of the best Black Friday laptop deals we've seen so far.
In our Microsoft Surface Laptop 5 review, we liked its capable speaker, tactile keyboard and slim, premium design. Microsoft's newer Surface Pro 9 doubles as a 2-in-1 laptop with an optional detachable keyboard; Microsoft currently offers the standalone Surface Pro Signature Keyboard for $144, down from $180. The Surface Pro 9 and Pro Keyboard Bundle is also on sale for $999, down from $1,539. (By comparison, Best Buy undercuts the price for this bundle by $55.)
The Surface Pro 9 base configuration on sale packs a 13-inch (2880 x 1920) PixelSense touchscreen, 12th Gen Intel Core i5-1235U 10-core CPU, 16GB of RAM and Iris Xe Graphics. Meanwhile, a speedy 256GB SSD ensures fast file transfers and stores thousands of files.
We didn't get our hands on the Surface Pro 9 for testing, but we took its predecessor for a spin. In our Surface Pro 8 review, we appreciated its gorgeous display, strong performance and excellent webcam. We gave the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 a rating of 4 of 5 stars and our coveted Editor's Choice award. (We expect no less from the Surface Pro 9, given its upgraded 12th Gen Intel CPU.)
Looking for the best Xbox Black Friday deals? Pick up the Xbox Series S console for $239, Xbox Wireless Controller for $39 or save up to 50% on Xbox games. There are plenty of other Xbox deals to be had at the Microsoft store.
