I have high hopes for this Black Friday and Surface Pro deals. With the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 out, I think we're going to see some record lows on the Surface Pro 8, and some eye-catching deals on the 9. And this is the week where all those deals will start coming in.
The Surface Pro runs Windows, so it has the advantage of being able to run fully-fledged desktop software, and so it's ideal for creatives. If you're looking to do more demanding work, such as editing high-resolution RAW images or video editing, we recommend going for the Intel Core i7 configuration of the Surface Pro 9 with at least 16GB RAM (which is the device I'm writing on now - it's pretty nice!).
But if you want a device for basic browsing and office work, a Surface Pro 8 or 9 with Intel Core i5 and 8GB RAM is all you need (remember you'll also want to buy a Type Cover). Not wedded to a Microsoft tablet? We've been tracking and comparing the best Apple Black Friday deals as they happen.

Best US deals in detail
Surface Pro 9 (i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD):
$1,599 $1,097.99 at Amazon
Save $501: I'm a big fan of the Surface Pro 9, and I'm writing this article on this very device that currently has $501 off at Amazon. Teh current best Surface Pro deal this Black Friday so far. It's a great Windows-running touchscreen tablet that turns into a laptop if you buy the Type Cover, and I find this configuration has the power I need for photo editing and light video editing. Stock seems to be low right now.
Surface Pro 9 Intel i5:
$1,099.99 $799.99 at Microsoft
Save $300: This is the second best deal on the Surface Pro 9 right now. It's a huge $300 discount, on the less powerful i5 core, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. It's perfect if you're doing lots of browsing, streaming, mobile games and some photo editing.
Surface Pro 9 Intel i7 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD:
$2,599.99 $1,799.99 at Microsoft
Save $800: This best-ever deal for the top-spec Surface Pro 9 gives you an Intel Core i7 processor, 32GB of RAM and 1TB SSD storage. This is all you'll need for most creative work (although as Surface Pro don't come with dedicated graphics cards, this won't be a gaming machine) so should set you up nicely for the next few years. The offer is being matched by Best Buy and Target (in case you get the dreaded out-of-stock message before we notice...)
Best UK deals in detail
Surface Pro 9 (Intel i5, 16GB RAM, 256GB):
£1,399 £965 at Amazon
Save £434: This is a great price for the Surface Pro 9 with an Intel Core i5 processor, 16GB of RAM and 256GB SSD. This low price is only for the Black colour model, but play around with the different configurations on Amazon for savings on the exact colour and processor combo you want.
Surface Pro 9 (Intel i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB):
£1,599 £999 at Amazon
Save £140: Amazon also has a discount on the Intel Core i7 model. The other specs remain the same, but this is the device I use and I appreciate the extra capability for more graphically demanding tasks.
The prices of all configurations are bouncing up and down a little on Amazon, so play around with the configuration options to find the option that suits you best.
