The Microsoft Surface brand started its life as a line of tablets, and the flagship Surface Pro devices continue this tradition beautifully. The latest iteration is the Surface Pro 7, which, while technically a tablet, is actually our favorite Windows 2-in-1 laptop when bundled with the Type Cover Keyboard. This one pairs a 10th-generation Core i3 CPU with 4GB of RAM — perfectly respectable hardware for web browsing, video watching, document writing, spreadsheet making, and so on — and its gorgeous 12.3-inch touch display has a very productivity-friendly 3:2 aspect ratio (after using it, you won’t want to go back to standard 16:9 screens). The Type Cover Keyboard feels great to the touch and can easily detach from the Surface Pro 7 when all you need is a Windows tablet.
Ongoing Black Friday Microsoft Surface deals let you score our favorite Windows 2-in-1 from Best Buy for just $ 599 after a $ 359 discount — an incredible value for one of the best and most innovative laptops on the market today.
— $ 800, was $ 900
The Surface stable has been expanded with some laptops in recent years, and although a few of them have been a little hit-or-miss, the Surface Laptop Go is definitely a winner. It’s sleek, it’s simple, it’s a good performer, and although it packs a smaller display than most laptops at 12.4 inches, the screen boasts a similar 3:2 aspect ratio to its tablet siblings so it’s comfortable to work on for extended periods of time (the keyboard and touchpad are quite nice, too, so no worries about those long work sessions). That 1,536 x 1,024 resolution PixelSense display is also a touchscreen, so while it’s not a true 2-in-1, the Surface Laptop Go offers some extra versatility in contrast to other laptops.
This model sports a 10th-gen Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, and ongoing Black Friday deals let you grab it for $ 800 right now after a nice $ 100 price cut. With hardware like that, this Surface Laptop Go can be your daily work companion for years to come.
