Microsoft got it wrong, its Surface Pro 8 appears at a crazy price

For ten years, Microsoft has virtually had a monopoly on the hybrid PC segment. Its latest Surface Pro 8 is a great product for both home and business use. This is the tablet that absolutely brings together a computer and a more traditional tablet in a single product. You can thus avoid buying two products and only make one.

Above all, the value for money of this product is very good. Sure, Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8 is more expensive than a regular tablet (but cheaper than an iPad Pro), but it’s cheaper than a computer. For Black Friday, Amazon makes its price incredible thanks to an immediate discount at the top: the 128 GB model in platinum color drops to 849 euros instead of 1179 euros.

In the image above you can see the full version of this Microsoft Surface Pro 8. Please note that this model only comes with the tablet by default. You can then add a stylus and a keyboard. In addition, an offer that combines the tablet with the keyboard is also available on Amazon. You are free to purchase these accessories to transform it into a more traditional computer.

A tablet with portable performance

Often we hear people say that their tablet could “almost” replace their computer. In fact, some points are missing: power, compatibility with office tools, connectivity, etc. It all comes together in Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8, making this tablet a “real” computer. Microsoft also boasts of having a product that combines the flexibility of a tablet with the power of a computer.

That is exactly what it offers and the competition is absent in this segment. Even Apple with its iPad Pro does not offer such a solution: it remains a real tablet with the classic limitations. Surface Pro 8, which also runs on Windows like conventional laptops, responds very effectively to all these shortcomings.

First, we like its 13-inch IPS touchscreen, which is reminiscent of a conventional computer. Little subtlety of this tablet, Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8 also comes with a multi-position foot that allows you to raise the tilt of the tablet more or less. It’s very practical whether you want to watch a movie standing up on public transport or at work. Note that it benefits from a refresh rate of 120 Hz, which ensures extreme fluidity (also with the pen).

Under the hood is a powerful processor from Intel generation 11. Together with Windows 11, it offers all the power of a laptop in a touchpad. This also allows you to use the Microsoft Office suite of software such as Word, Excel or Powerpoint. Everything is simple, like on a computer, except that it can be carried anywhere. Autonomy is also excellent: 16 hours, knowing that it ensures fast recharging.

For the connectivity part, the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is also brilliant. It has connectivity options that no tablet on the market has, without a doubt. However, it remains nice and comfortable. There are two USB-C and Thunderbolt 4 ports, a dedicated Surface Connect magnetic charging port, a 3.5mm jack and also connectivity with Wi-Fi 6.

If the Surface Pro 8, like all the other tablets, is not designed to be the queen of photography, it is still much better than the competition in this segment. Above all, there is a 5 MP front camera that films in 1080p, which is handy for video conferencing. On the back, the 10 MP camera is capable of filming in 4K and taking very good photos.

Amazon called Microsoft

One thing is certain: this Microsoft tablet for under 900 euros is a real gold nugget. It’s a product that doesn’t need to be on discount to sell very well. Normally we never see it go below 1,000 euros, so it’s a really nice surprise during this Black Friday. Amazon is also the only one that can offer discounts on the bare tablet.

There are several advantages to buying a Surface Pro 8 from Microsoft on this retailer site. First of all, it guarantees you the best price for the duration of Black Friday, from the 18th to the 28th of November. Even if this hybrid tablet were to see its price drop further in the coming days, Amazon is committed to refunding you the difference from the price you paid today.

Then it also lets you return that Microsoft Surface Pro 8 much later than Christmas. While most e-tailers in France limit themselves to the usual 14-day right of withdrawal, Amazon goes further and allows them to be returned after Christmas. This way, if you offer this touchpad this Christmas and it doesn’t please, you can always send it back and get your money back. This saves you from taking a financial risk and having to resell it later on eBay.

Since the beginning of Black Friday 48 hours ago, Amazon has been stormed on all flagship products. The Surface Pro 8 is one of them, and there was a keyboard bundle that has since sold out. That said, this formula, which includes the tablet alone, is already excellent and we highly recommend it. At this price, you can take advantage of the bare tablet to experience this advanced service.
