The Surface Pro 7 can be used as a standalone tablet, but paired with the excellent Type Cover from Microsoft, as it is in this deal, it becomes a fantastic 2-in-1 laptop.
In our Surface Pro 7 review, we praised it for its premium design, overall performance and vivid display. One of our complaints was that the keyboard is sold separately, a problem nicely solved by this bundle deal which is also shaving quite a bit off the full retail price.
At 12.5 x 7.9 x 0.3 inches and 1.7 pounds, the Surface Pro 7 is just a bit larger than the Surface Pro X (11.3 x 8.2 x 0.3 inches), but it offers considerably more utility due to the current limitations of Windows on ARM.
Battery-wise, the fully charged Surface Pro 7 lasted 7 hours and 52 minutes on our Laptop Mag Battery Test, which just misses the category average of 8:14. It's not a great result, but neither is it a deal-breaker.
Fortunately, it still has that handy magnetic Surface Connect port for charging with magnetic charging all the rage again thanks to Apple's MagSafe charger for the iPhone 12. A USB Type-C port, USB 3.1 Type-A and the headphone/mic jack round out the ports giving you future-proofing and legacy support.
At up to $360 off, depending on your configuration, the Surface Pro 7 is an excellent choice for those that want a do-it-all 2-in-1 laptop that can also easily become a standalone tablet.
