The decision between which device — laptop or tablet — is the the right one to use for specific tasks is a tough one. On the one hand, tablets, like those in these Surface Pro deals, can do so much more than they used to. Attach a keyboard and you basically have a laptop. On the other hand, laptops are getting thinner, lighter, and cheaper and are often available in 2-for-1 configurations. One way to meet in the middle is with the Microsoft Surface Pro 7, which is at Best Buy. Right now, it’s down to $599, a huge drop from its regular price of $959.
With the Surface Pro 7, you’ll experience the pleasure of a touchscreen with the power of something approaching a laptop, especially with a Type Cover included, as it is with this deal. Increasingly, we’re seeing powerful tablets like this one take on many of the daily duties of laptops at home, at work, and in between. While it might not have the heft of a laptop or all the bells and whistles, the Surface Pro 7 has a speedy processor, a big hard drive, a fantastic screen, PixelSense display, and a USB-C connection.
Like the very best laptops, the Surface Pro 7’s power comes from a 10th-generation Intel Core processor, which gives this tablet a launch pad from which you can initiate all kinds of multitasking, whether you need to run several programs at once or like to keep a million tabs open at the same time. Backing it up is an impressive 8GB of memory and a 256GB SSD hard drive for storage. These specs are more than decent for a laptop and remarkable for a tablet. This edition of the Surface Pro 7 saw the addition of a USB-C connection (adding to its USB-A), so all your file transfers, not to mention its charging, can be lightning fast. And when it comes to the battery, this tablet doesn’t slouch: It boasts 10.5 hours of use per full charge.
As with all our favorite tablets, the touchscreen on the Surface Pro 7 is both responsive and effective. You’ll love working and playing on the Surface Pro 7, whether you’re creating presentations, browsing the web, or enjoying content. The screen looks great too, adding to its versatility. You can be pouring over numbers or building a deck one minute and then relaxing with Netflix on the couch the next. It’s fantastic on Zoom and other video calls, and the backlit keyboard is hugely helpful too. Add a Surface Pen to the operation and you’ve got a serious creative hub as well. This tablet has it all.
Don’t sleep on your chance to score the amazing Microsoft Surface Pro 7, with Type Cover, for only $599 right now at Best Buy. That’s an amazing deal, an incredibleits regular price of $959. Don’t let it get away.
