Of all the hardware Microsoft announced at its September 2021 event, the Surface Pro 8 was the most exciting for many people.
The company’s latest flagship 2-in-1 was years in the making, combining a long-awaited redesign with a bigger 120Hz display and improved battery life. An increase to the starting price reflects that – you’ll now pay at least £999/$1099.99 when buying full price.
That was the main sticking point in our full review, especially with the keyboard cover and other accessories still sold separately. But fortunately, the device has been frequently discounted since its release. If you’re based in the US or UK, here’s what you need to know.
