The coveted Core i7 configuration of the Surface Pro 9, which also has 16GB of memory but a rather paltry 256GB of SSD storage, has dropped back to its lowest sale price since the latest iteration of the Microsoft tablet was released in late October of last year.

A versatile Windows tablet is a suitable primary computing device for many regular users who don’t plan to play triple-A games or work with overly demanding professional applications. However, since the most well-known product in this segment, the Microsoft Surface Pro 9, can be a quite expensive purchase, some buyers might have been waiting for a corresponding tablet deal.

Fortunately, Best Buy and Amazon are now selling a well-equipped configuration of the graphite Surface Pro 9, which features the Intel Core i7-1255U Alder Lake chip and 16GB of soldered LPDDR5 RAM, for US$1,199 including free shipping or store pickup. Moreover, the 13-inch tablet comes with a 256GB SSD and an IPS screen with a QHD resolution of 2880 by 1920 pixels and a smooth 120Hz refresh rate. Most notably, this deal matches the lowest sale price ever for the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 and offers a 25 percent or US$400 discount compared to the official list price.

Shoppers who consider giving the Surface Pro 9 a chance should take a few minutes to check out our comprehensive written review and comparison video with one of the device’s closest competitors from Dell. For example, buyers of this Microsoft tablet can expect a high system performance and high-quality case, but we also praised the display and Thunderbolt 4 and WiFi 6E support. On a more critical note, the Windows slate doesn’t have the longest battery life and no longer comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack or SD card reader. Tablet users who can live with these drawbacks may want to consider this notable deal.
