22% off Microsoft Surface Pro 7 (from $974), Surface Laptop 3 (from $1,324), Book 3 from ($2,066) at Microsoft Store

140

Looks like Microsoft has brought back its 22% off Surface Pro/Laptop/Book sale similar to the one they did for Black Friday (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/584129) minus the gift they were including back then.

Keep in mind that the Surface Pro 8 and Laptop 4 series of devices might be announced by Microsoft in the early part of next year. Main improvements being the Intel 11th Gen processors and re-introduction of LTE for the i5 based models.

The $1909 price for a Surface Pro 7 i7 with 16GB RAM and 256GB storage is a pretty tempting.

    Unfortunately, no Thunderbolt 3 port on any of these Surface devices.

      True, however after reading about the "Thunderspy" vulnerability I guess it makes sense why they decided to not include it considering they market these devices to large corporates as well. Doesn't really impact regular consumers but I guess MS couldn't be bother to make a variant with TB3 for consumers who don't care about that vulnerability.

      Hopefully this vulnerability is fixed in the future implementations and MS include Thunderbolt in their new devices!

        I think this excuse by MS is BS. HP, Dell, Lenovo all have thunderbolt laptops that they sell to corporate customers in much larger quantities than MS.

          THIS
          Also overpriced AF like 500 bucks more to go from 256Gb to 512Gb, what are you smoking. ~2600 for an Ice Lake i7/16Gb/512Gb laptop vs 1799 for the same spec in a Razer Blade (except 16:10 screen vs FHD but seriously like that's worth 800 more bucks) on the exact same website.

    Amex offer too spend $400 get $80 off

    Getting old though. Surface 8 was delayed and should be out early next year. Better to wait. Prices of 7 will fall too.

    'Starting at $974' .. gets you a miserable i3, 128gb and worst of all 4 gigs of ram.

    Absolutely not ok in 2020. The real starting price is $1560.

      I just checked and looks like they are available. Just to test I was able to add a 13.5 i5 8GB 128GB (Platinum Alcantara) for $1324 in to my cart.

      Not all colours are available in all sizes; you must have been looking at Platinum (Metal).

    If only the Surface Pro 7 had thinner bezels. The bezels are identical to the Surface Pro 4 from 2015. You could make an argument saying that it's easier to use as a tablet but think It's a bit much for this generation.

      I think they're fine. All of the tablet competition have noticeable bezels too.

      The thing I'd be waiting on is new internals, a SP8 with a Ryzen 5500U + 16 gigs would be awesome.

    •  

      genuine question, given the weight of these things are pretty heavy, what's the motivation and cost:benefit for having thinner bezels? It seems like the path to hearing people complainig about tablets screen cracking at the slightest knocks (ie. ipad pros)? i like lugging my surface pro around, without having to buy another protective case for it.

      the tablets can connect to a bigger monitor(s) via a dock… so why?

        The idea being to enjoy a bigger screen in the same size of device.

    •  

      I think its time they do a bit design update. They all have been looking the same since the Pro 4, which I'm still using and has surprisingly been working extremely well even now.

    •  

      The new Surface Pro 8 also has the same old design form 2014. Not sure why they do not just use the same Surface Pro X design but make it thicker with vents to accommodate the inefficient Intel CPU's. Yet MS is happy serving up the same warmed over leftovers year after year

    Macbook Air M1 is much better, the $974 one is useless
