When Microsoft launched the original Surface tablets, its dream was to reinvigorate the stagnant designs of its partners. It’s fair to say that the amount of Microsoft Surface 2016 Black Friday Deals for the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 speak to how successful the company’s strategy was.
If you want a notebook that can become a tablet or a tablet with the heart of a notebook, there’s nothing better than a Surface Book or a Surface Pro 4. The only thing that’s managed to temper Microsoft’s success is the price they ask for each. Regularly, the Surface Book is $1499 without a graphics card. The Surface Pro 4 is much cheaper at $899, but it doesn’t come with the Type Cover that users need to get the complete Surface experience.
The 2016 Black Friday deals that we know about so far heavily slash the cost of adopting either the Surface Book or the Surface Pro 4 as your next PC. Some include a free Type Cover for the Surface Pro 4. Others slash the cost of the Surface Pro 4 itself so that users have more cash on hand to purchase the accessories that they want and need.
Microsoft’s 2016 Black Friday deals will arrive online on November 23rd at 9PM Pacific Standard Time online. Its retail stores will begin offering the sales on November 24th.

You’ve likely noticed that the bulk of these deals cover only the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book. That’s because each has been out for a year, but are still being made. Microsoft only slightly upgraded the Surface Book this year, with a performance base.
The Surface 3 is no longer in production, which is why its missing from the savings bonanza. The Surface Studio only debuted in late October. Good luck getting your hands on a Surface Book or Surface Pro 4 on sale this holiday season.
