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 RAM 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.
Microsoft recently revealed its first major update for the Surface Book in late October. The company didn’t revamp the device entirely, but did introduce a base with bigger batteries and beefy graphics processors that let users play games in full fidelity.

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.
Microsoft Store – Refurbished Surface Books starting at $1,149
Microsoft isn’t ready to drop the price of the Surface Book significantly, but the company did recently start offering refurbished versions on its website. These refurbished devices come complete with all the same extras that their normal counterparts do, plus a warranty that protects buyers if something should go wrong with them.
The cheapest refurbished Surface Book costs $1,149. The cheapest model loaded with an NVIDIA graphics processor sells for $1,489. To be clear, Microsoft doesn’t offer a refurbished Surface Book with performance base yet.
Newegg – Surface Book for $1,349
Longtime electronics deal site Newegg has big savings on the entry-level Microsoft Surface Book. Its Surface Book deals get anyone that wants the basic model of Microsoft’s 2-in-1 a $150 instant discount. The online retailer also offers free 3-day shipping.
Amazon – New Surface Pen for $49.99
The Surface Book comes with a Surface Pen, but if you need an extra or prefer a different color, you have to buy one separately. Amazon has the latest Surface Pen for $49.99. That’s $10 off the regular price. The discounted Surface Pens also have free shipping with Amazon Prime.
Best Buy – $20 Off Microsoft Office with a Surface Book Purchase
Microsoft’s Microsoft Office suite of productivity apps are essential to staying productive on any device — much less a Surface Book. One of the few Surface Book deals available at Best Buy is a $20 off coupon when users purchase a Surface Book and a boxed copy of Microsoft Office for their Surface Book.
The discount includes standard copies of Microsoft Office 2016 and year-long subscriptions to Microsoft’s Office 365 service.
Amazon – Surface Dock for $127
Microsoft’s Surface Dock accessory lets users run just a single cable and connect all of their different accessories. Normally it sells for $199, but Amazon has the Surface Dock for $127 with speedy delivery to those with Amazon Prime.
Good luck with these Surface Book deals. Gotta Be Mobile will keep this list of savings updated with new deals as they arrive.
