In our Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review, we found its gorgeous display and strong performance impressive. We also loved its dual Thunderbolt 4 port array and excellent webcam. 

During performance tests, the Surface Pro handled everything we threw at it without a hiccup. Even when tasked with 24 Chrome browser tabs, two of which streamed YouTube videos at 1080p while another pair ran Twitch streams — the Surface Pro 8 didn't even stutter. 

We gave the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 an overall rating of 4 of 5 stars. It's the Editor's Choice convertible tablet PC.

As we note in our Surface Pro X SQ2 review, it boasts a gorgeous 13-inch display, sleek, premium design, and good battery life. Design-wise, the Surface Pro X has slimmer bezels and rounded corners compared to the Surface Pro 7. It retains the convenient kickstand of its sibling on the back.

In our Surface Pro 7 Plus review, we liked its bright, vivid display and fast CPU and graphics performance. We also appreciate its swappable SSD and fanless chassis. We gave the Surface Pro 7 Plus an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars. 

In one test, our reviewer launched 20 Google Chrome tabs, a few Edge windows, a handful of 1080p YouTube videos, and a Champions League match on Paramount+. The Surface Pro 7 Plus didn't stutter or lag. Our test unit had an 11th Gen Core i5 CPU so we expect the tablet in this deal to deliver on par performance.
