We're holding out for some great Surface Pro Black Friday deals in 2022 following the savings we saw in 2021. Microsoft's hybrid tablet/laptop remains a favourite among digital creatives since it offers an ideal compromise between portability and performance. The Surface Pro 8 was released in October, just a month ahead of Black Friday, and we can anticipate that the Surface Pro 9 will be out in time for Black Friday 2022.

Surface Pro Black Friday 2022: when is Black Friday 2022?

Despite now being an international event, in most countries Black Friday follows the US calendar and falls the day after Thanksgiving. That means Black Friday 2022 falls on Friday 25 November. Cyber Monday comes the Monday afterwards – 28 November in 2022, so Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on Surface Pros and anything else tend to merge into one.

And of course, these are only the official, traditional dates. The reality is that retailers have been starting their sales earlier every year, so you've got every change of finding a good Surface Pro Black Friday deal any time in November. While the deepest discounts are still usually saved for the main weekend, it can be wise to grab an early deal while you can before the rush starts.

Surface Pro Black Friday: what happened in 2021?

Since the Surface Pro 8 was released just a month before Black Friday, it should be no surprise that in 2021 we saw a lot of Black Friday deals on the Surface Pro 6, 7 and 7+ models, but we saw some surprise discounts on the brand new Surface Pro 8 as well (see the current best Surface Pro 8 prices). 

Several retailers offered around $200/£200 off the Surface Pro 7, but the best Surface Pro Black Friday deals we saw was direct from Microsoft, which had up to $400/£450 off the Surface Pro 7. Meanwhile, on the shiny new Surface Pro 8, we saw $200 off at Walmart in the US, taking the price to just $899.

Black Friday Surface Pro 8 deals

The Surface Pro 8 is Microsoft's latest addition to its tablet lineup. Despite the fact that it was only released in October 2021. We saw some surprise discounts on the new device during Black Friday 2021, so we can expect to see more next year, especially if the Surface Pro 9 is released before the sales.

Black Friday Surface Pro 7 deals

The Surface Pro 7 and Surface Pro 7 Plus (or 7+) are still great hybrid tablets for heavy workloads and popular choices for digital creatives. The two models were released quite some distance apart, the original Surface Pro 7 in October 2019 and the Surface Pro 7 Plus in January 2021, but their specs aren't actually very different. Both have the same size bezels, kick stand backing, and the same 12.3-inch, 2736 x 1824-pixel touchscreen, but the Surface Pro 7 Plus supports 4G LTE, whereas the 7 only has a wi-fi connection. With the recent release of the Surface Pro 8, now is a great time to shop around for discounts on both devices.

Black Friday Surface Pro X deals

The Surface Pro X, which comes with the Microsoft SQ2 ARM SoC processor (a custom version of the Snapdragon 8cx) is faster and more powerful than the Surface Pro 6, which is starting to date a little. The Surface Pro 7 is still a considerable improvement, but the X is worth considering if you find a good deal.

Black Friday Surface Pro 6 deals

It's a little long in the tooth now, but the Surface Pro 6 is still worth considering if you see a good deal. If offers a beautiful display, long battery life and excellent performance, but the Surface Pro 7 above was a big improvement.

Surface Pro Black Friday 2022: which Surface Pro should you buy?

The Surface Pro is Microsoft's range of hybrid tablets, which have optional detachable keyboard accessories and optional stylus pens. The latest model is the Surface Pro 8, released in October 2021. It boasts a slimmer profile than previous models, with much smaller bezels, and also more pixels in the 13in screen. However, Microsoft's earlier models, the Surface Pro X and the Surface Pro 7 and 6 still pack a punch and offer a handy portable hybrid tablet for creatives. 

The Surface Pro X, which comes with the Microsoft SQ2 ARM SoC processor (a custom version of the Snapdragon 8cx, and the Surface Pro 7 are faster and more powerful than the Surface Pro 6, which is starting to date a little.
