On this page I’ll post updates on 2014 Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on Microsoft’s Surface tablet family and their accessories. There are a couple of good deals on the latest Surface Pro 3, the previous generation Surface Pro 2, and on the Windows RT-based Surface 2. In particular, at Microsoft Store and Best Buy.
Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Black Friday Deal at Microsoft Store and Best Buy
The Surface Pro 3 (Microsoft Store, Best Buy) will see price drops of between $100 and $150, depending on configuration. The cheapest SP3 with the Intel Core i3 processor, 64GB of SSD storage, and a regular price of $799.99 won’t be discounted, since the deal is available only for “128GB or larger” models. Therefore, on sale will be the Intel Core i5 / 128GB, i5 / 256GB, i7 / 256GB, and i7 / 512GB configurations, with regular prices ranging from $999.99 to 1,949.99.
Surface Pro 2 Price Slash
As for the recently discontinued Surface Pro 2, no official Black Friday deal is available. But, the Pro 2 has got a major price cut recently on select models, up to $600 off. The top-of-the line 512GB variant is now $999.99, down from $1,599, while the 256GB model is $899.99 after $200 instant off. Price for the 128GB Surface Pro 2 remained the same at $899.99, so you should definitely avoid it and get the 256GB one instead for the same price. The SP2 models are powered by the same Intel Core i5 found in the mid range SP3.
Microsoft Surface 2 2014 Black Friday Deals
Another offer in Microsoft Store’s and Best Buy’s Black Friday 2014 catalogs are 150-dollar discounts on the non-Pro Surface 2 (Microsoft Store, Best Buy). After instant savings applied, it will start at $299.99. That’s the price for the model with 32GB of storage, while the 64GB one will cost $399. A version with 64GB and 4G LTE mobile broadband support will be $529 after savings. Black Friday discounts on the 64GB and 64GB LTE editions will be available only at the Microsoft Store.
UPDATE: Surface 2 64GB LTE with a new 2-year AT&T contract is $349.99 at Best Buy. Click on the Best Buy link in the paragraph above for more info.
The Surface 2 doesn’t support the traditional x86 “desktop” Windows programs, since it is based on an ARM processor and Windows RT operating system.
All listed prices are without any keyboard cover or other accessories included. The proprietary keyboard covers start at $119.99.
Dell 28-inch Ultra HD 4K Monitor + Surface Pro 3 Docking Station Bundle
To accompany your Surface Pro 3, Microsoft has prepared a Dell 28-inch Ultra HD 4K Monitor + Surface Pro 3 Docking Station Bundle. The Black Friday price for the bundle is $499.99. The bundled monitor is the Dell P2815Q. Besides 4K Ultra HD 3840-by-2160-pixel resolution, the monitor has a low refresh rate of 30Hz and TN panel technology, meaning narrower viewing angles than on the IPS-based screens. The P2815Q itself currently costs $399.99. The dock provides an Ethernet port, a Mini DisplayPort video output, and five USB connectors (3 x USB 3.0 + 2 x USB 2.0). Its everyday price is $199.99, so you’ll save $100 if you purchase the devices in the bundle instead of separately.
The Surface Black Friday sales at Microsoft Store and Best Buy start on Thursday, November 27th 2014.
