Looking to pick up a great Surface Pro Black Friday 2019 deal, but don't know where to start? You're in the right place. In this article, you'll find all you need to know to bag a bargain on Microsoft's leading 2-in1 tablet/laptop.
Black Friday isn't upon us yet (this year's event takes place on 29 November, with Cyber Monday following on 2 December), so for now we'll be offering all our predictions for 2019: the kinds of Surface Pro Black Friday deals we expect to see, which models will be discounted, and where to look for the best bargains.
In the run-up to the shopping event, we'll update the article with all the early Surface Pro Black Friday deals. Then on the 29 November through to 1 December, we'll be working tirelessly to bring you all the very best offers as soon as they go live.
Which Surface Pro models will be getting a Black Friday 2019 discount?
On Black Friday 2018 and Amazon Prime Day 2019, we've saw a number of strong discounts on the Surface Pro, and we expect this to be the case for Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year, too.
At its Fall Hardware event on 2 October 2019, Microsoft unveiled two new Pro models: the Surface Pro 7 and the Surface Pro X, on sale 22 October and 19 November respectively. This bodes well for potential Black Friday Surface Pro 6 deals.
Are we going to see any offers on the new Surface Pros? Well normally we'd say no. Typically retailers focus on slightly older stock for their sales. However, over last year's holiday event, many bucked this trend by knocking down the price of the then-brand-new Surface Pro 6. There's nothing to say the same thing won't happen with the Surface Pro 7 or Pro X this year, if those are the models you have your heart set on. Of course, we'll share any deals here as soon as we hear of them.
There's also the older Surface Pro to consider in the mix. To help you decide which one's right for you, take a look at our Surface Pro 6 review, our Surface Pro review, or our hands-on Surface Pro X review.
