This incredibly powerful Microsoft Surface Pro 8 model is on sale at a staggering $600 discount

Written by admin

What is the all round best tablet you can buy right now? from Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra? Probably not when you factor in Android’s inherent limitations on a big screen and the unwieldy dimensions of that 14.6-inch behemoth.

Apple’s latest iPad Pro powerhouses, meanwhile, aren’t exactly value champions, especially when compared to something like Microsoft’s oft-discounted Surface Pro 8. Released in Fall 2021, this is pretty big (and heavy) too, sporting a 13-inch PixelSense Flow display with a resolution of 2880 x 1920 pixels and 120Hz refresh rate capabilities, tipping the scales at almost 900 grams.
If you can live with that last number, the advanced age of the Pro 8 compared to the iPad Pro (2022) duo certainly shouldn’t stop you from considering a year-end purchase with an excellent $600 discount.

This is offered directly by Amazon (rather than any third-party seller) with no strings attached on an absolutely state-of-the-art configuration based on the Intel Evo platform and equipped with Core i7 processing power.

While we’re obviously not talking about a latest-generation Intel Core chip, it should still be fast and efficient enough to take on the Apple M2-powered Sixth generation iPad Pro 12.9 for most everyday tasks and use cases. Combined with full Windows 11 software support, that ultra-high-end hardware is likely to deliver unrivaled on-the-go productivity at the whopping aforementioned $600 under a list price of $1,599.99.

This heavily discounted Surface Pro 8 model also packs a speedy 256GB solid-state drive and no less than 16GB of RAM, topping Apple’s similarly priced 12.9-inch iPad Pro from those two standpoints as well.

As incredibly rare as an opportunity to maximize your savings may seem, you should know that Best Buy offered an identical deal on Black Friday. But not only that is gone, with Intel Core i7 / 256GB SSD / 16GB RAM Surface Pro 8 units completely out of stock in the meantime. Yes, this particular variant is no longer available from Best Buy (or Microsoft) at all, making Amazon’s hot new deal that much hotter and harder to turn down.
