The Black Friday deals are getting an early start this year if you're in the market for a Surface device. While the Surface Pro 9 hasn't even had a chance to get comfortable on the shelves yet, you can get a great deal on the Surface Pro 7 Plus with a Type Cover keyboard included starting at just $599.99 at Best Buy, that's $330 off the normal price.
The Surface Pro 7 Plus package on sale is the lower-end Intel Core I3, 8GB of Ram, and 128GB SSD storage SKU. While it likely won't be a video editing workhorse or play the latest in 3D gaming, for most people doing productivity tasks it should be more than adequate. Keep in mind you won't get the thinner bezels or the Thunderbolt port that was introduced starting with the Surface Pro 8, you do get a USB-C port, which still allows the addition of multiport docks to drive multiple screens and peripherals. You also get a USB-A port and the proprietary Surface Connect Port.
You still get all the high-end goodies you come to expect from the Surface Pro lineup, the 12.3-inch screen supports resolutions up to 2736 x 1824, and you get the sturdy kickstand, as well as a front-facing 1080P camera and microphone for your video calling needs. The only downside might be if you're buying the device for strict portability, Microsoft does advertise a 15-hour battery life, but 4-8 hours of runtime seems to be more typical.
While not the newest or most flashy device the Surface Pro 7 Plus is more than a capable device for most. This deal is hard to pass up with the Type Cover included, which would be $130 if you had to buy it separately.
