Microsoft has in turn launched numerous promotions on its online store. There are some great bargains to be had: complete packs with Surface + keyboard, laptops and even video games. Here is the list of the best offers not to be missed.
Microsoft’s turn to launch its Black Friday promotions. The American manufacturer is offering numerous discounts until November 30 on its Surface Pro 7 or Surface Go 2, its excellent Surface Laptop 3 and even on the new Xbox controller. Discounts can reach up to 429 euros in some cases.
Here’s the full list of the best deals from this weekend.
The Surface Pro 7 (Intel Core i5, 128 GB) + Type Cover keyboard + stylus at only 899 euros (429 euros discount)
In just a few years, Microsoft has established itself as one of the great masters of the 2-in-1 laptop PC with its Surface line. The Surface Pro 7 is quite simply the culmination of the firm in this area. On one side, therefore, is the tablet itself, with a superb 12.3-inch screen, 3K definition in 2: 3 format so special. A very tall format that promotes reading spreadsheets and word processing software and therefore productivity.
Under the hood of this tablet, Microsoft has inserted a little powerhouse with a latest generation Core i5, 8 GB of RAM and a fast 128 GB SSD. A device capable of running any recent office application without no problem for years.
On the other side of this offering is the Type Cover keyboard and stylus, which perfectly complement this tablet to turn it into a 2-in-1 PC. The Type Cover keyboard is a very thin keyboard with a very comfortable typing. As for the stylus, it quite simply allows you to take handwritten notes on the tablet and then automatically transform them into text. Indispensable and complementary accessories.
Normally the Surface Pro 7, associated with a Type Cover keyboard and stylus, is sold for 1328.98 euros. For Black Friday, Microsoft cuts its price by nearly a third, dropping it to 899 euros. A very nice saving of 429 euros.
The Surface Laptop 3 (Intel Core i5, 8 + 256 GB) at 839 euros (310 euros discount)
We often regret never finding a Windows equivalent of the MacBook Air. With the Surface Laptop ranges, Microsoft has understood this well and has designed the almost perfect Windows laptop with its latest Surface Laptop 3. Starting with its design, whose sobriety and elegance are very appreciable. With its all-metal design, clean lines and Microsoft logo on the back, you feel like you’re dealing with a premium product.
The Surface Laptop 3 also has its featherweight (1.28 kg), its 13.5-inch screen with very thin borders and a muscular technical sheet. In the version on sale today, there is indeed an Intel Core i5 processor associated with 8 GB of RAM and especially a 128 GB SSD.
In this configuration, the Surface Laptop 3 is usually sold for 1149 euros. The time of this Black Friday weekend, its price goes to 839 euros. Great value for a potential Christmas present that can last any student’s studies.
The Surface Go 2 + black Type Cover keyboard + stylus at only 599 euros (232 euros discount)
Also for students, if the Surface Laptop 3 doesn’t seem suitable enough for mobility or is out of budget, this Surface Go 2 pack is a great alternative. The Surface Go 2 broadly adopts the principle of the Surface Pro 7 with its concept of 2-in-1 PC including a touch pad under Windows 10, which can be associated with a Type Cover keyboard and a stylus.
The main difference is mainly in the format and in the technical sheet. The Surface Go 2 is smaller, with a 10.5-inch Full HD display. It also has a less powerful processor (but also less energy-consuming), an Intel Pentium Gold 4425Y, but still 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space.
Again, this pack is interesting, because it includes the tablet as well as the Type-Cover keyboard and the compatible stylus. This pack is currently sold only 599 euros, against 838.98 euros usually.
The new Xbox controller at 50.99 euros (9 euros discount)
For Black Friday, Microsoft is already lowering the price of its excellent new Xbox controller. We have already said about Frandroid all the good things we think about this controller. Not only is it a model of ergonomics, but in addition it is compatible with practically all the OS of the moment, from macOS to Android via iOS. Take one, it is the assurance of being able to play anywhere on any device for a long time.
Launched at a price of 59.99 euros just a few days ago, the new Xbox controller is already seeing its price drop to 50.99 euros. Shipping costs are also free.
Finally, if you are looking for games to put this controller to the test, know that Microsoft also organizes promotions on its online video game store, on Xbox. These include, among others, the recent remake of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater at 33.74 euros or Borderlands 3 at 23.09 euros.
