Microsoft has just launched its Black Friday sale, offering a number of deals on its range of popular laptop-tablet hybrids.
The latest Surface Pro 9 may have launched recently, but if you want to save money on an equally capable device in this year’s Black Friday deals, a Surface Pro 7+ with a Type Cover keyboard will cost just £958 (was £958). 1,353.99) from the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).
That’s a huge saving of almost £400 off the usual price – and an even better deal when you consider that this comes with the almost-necessary Type Cover accessory as part of the package. Without it, you’d have to settle for the on-screen keyboard, which isn’t the easiest or most convenient option if you plan on using the Surface Pro for work or more involved tasks.

Microsoft Surface Pro Black Friday deals
This version of the Microsoft Surface Pro 7+ comes with an Intel i5 processor, 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD. That’s a solid mid-range spec that can comfortably handle all your everyday computing, light work and business needs. We’re especially happy to see 8GB of RAM at this price point, which is fine for strong performance when multitasking.
Meanwhile, the 12.3-inch touchscreen is a bright and clear screen that supports high-end resolutions up to 2736 x 1824 for excellent image quality. A study stand and front-facing camera also make the Surface Pro ideal for video calls from anywhere. It also helps that the device is light, so it’s easy to take with you wherever you go.
But a little warning about that portability. Microsoft suggests battery life is up to 15 hours on a single charge, but in our Microsoft Surface Pro 7 review we found it often fell below this mark, lasting anywhere from 4 to 8 hours.
Still, it’s a solid option this Black Friday, one of the best Surface Pro deals we’ve seen in months. If you want to check out some more options, we’ve got even more Surface devices below.
