Forget Surface Pro 10, you can save $400 on the Surface Pro 9 with great specs

Anyone considering buying a Microsoft Surface Pro right now faces a bit of a quandary. Should you hold out for the consumer version of the Surface Pro 10, which will presumably be released later this year, or go for a discount on the existing Surface Pro 9? I think I know which I would go for, considering that right now Amazon has the Surface Pro 9 reduced by $400 from $1,599.99 to $1,199.38.

This deal is on the Intel Evo i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD version of the 2022 tablet, which I'm using to write this on and which continues to run well, doing everything I'd want from a Windows 2-in-1 tablet-cum-laptop.

Save $400: The Surface Pro 9 is a table with a gorgeous stylus-supporting touchscreen display, but it runs full Windows desktop software, which means it can effective turn into a compact laptop when combined with Microsoft's Type Cover keyboard (sold separately).

Key features: 13-inch touch screen | 120Hz refresh rate | 2,880 x 1,920 resolution | Full HD, 1080p front-facing camera, 10MP camera, 4K video | Intel Core i7 | 16GB Memory | 256GB SSD

Release date: October 2022. 

Price history: This isn't quite the lowest price we've seen for this configuration of the Surface Pro 9 because Amazon briefly had a massive $600 off during Black Friday, but it's the best deal that we've seen since then. There are discounts on other configurations too, but sadly not as big.

Review consensus: This is the best Surface Pro tablet that's been released so far. We love the flexibility of running full desktop software on a 2-in-1 and find this one of the best implementations for design quality, build, features, display and more.
