There’s nothing that speaks more to Microsoft’s aggressive movement in the hardware space than the need for Surface Book deals. The Surface Book is of two worlds, one where Microsoft is still the dominant software maker and another where it has become a premiere hardware company in its own right.
With the Surface Book, Microsoft expanded the Surface brand beyond tablets for the first time. The Surface Book isn’t a tablet than can transform into something more like a notebook PC. It is a notebook PC, with detachable screen that can double as a tablet if needed too.
The Surface Book’s processor and storage are tucked into its display, with the base providing premium features that you don’t get in other Surface devices. Every model has an extra battery in its base, along with ports and even extra graphics hardware in some models. A fulcrum hinge connects the two pieces of the Surface Book together with the precision of a Swiss-made watch. All of this doesn’t come cheap, making any Surface Book deals that users can find that much more important.
Here are the best Surface Book deals available online and in store right now.
