Microsoft’s starting its Black Friday deals early, knocking hundreds of pounds off of its new Surface Pro 6 laptop-tablet convertibles and £200 off of all Surface Laptop 2s across the entire range.
If you’re in the market for a new Windows laptop and have always fancied something from Microsoft’s flashy line of Surface devices, then you’re unlikely to find as generous a deal than these Black Friday bundles and offers on the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2.
Surface Pro 6 deals see you saving money on the mid-range Core i5 models, which, in addition to having money knocked off of the standard RRP, include a Type Cover keyboard dock (normally £100). If you want more power, there are also deals with money off of the Core i7 Surface Pros. There’s no free keyboard dock, but the money you’ll save means you can pick one up and still get a great deal.

Black Friday Microsoft deals – Microsoft Store
This Surface Pro 6 bundle deal from Microsoft sees you saving up to £230, thanks to the discount and free Type Cover keyboard dock (normally £100).
Microsoft's Surface Pro 6 deal saves you up to £350 – you get £250 off of the RRP, and a free Type Cover keyboard dock, which normally costs £100.
Microsoft's lopping £200 off of every Surface Pro 6 for Black Friday, making this entry-level Core i7 option an even more attractive offer.
If you need a bit more internal storage, then the 512GB Surface Pro 6 option gives you just that, with an Intel Core i7 CPU for an added performance boost.
The top-tier Surface Pro 6 option – which gives you a huge 1TB of storage, an Intel Core i7 CPU and 16GB of RAM – is available with a £200 discount from Microsoft, for Black Friday.
If you’re after a laptop instead of a hybrid laptop-tablet, then you should pick up a Microsoft Surface Laptop 2.
Boasting solid performance, a sharp display, decent typing experience, and exceptional battery life, the Surface Laptop 2 will more than satisfy as your daily driver. If you’re mainly after a laptop to handle all of your work needs, then a Surface Laptop 2 with an Intel Core i5 will satisfy. If you want to do some gaming in between working, then you should pick the Core i7 option.
For Black Friday, Microsoft’s selling Surface Laptop 2’s with £200 off, across the board.

What to expect from Microsoft’s Black Friday deals this year
Surface Pro 6
Microsoft’s two latest flagship laptop devices, the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2, have been very nicely discounted on the Microsoft Store.
The cheaper Surface Pro 6 hybrid laptop tablets, the ones with Intel Core i5 processors (i5-8250U), can be snapped up now with either £180 or £250 off of the usual price. Both of these bundles come with the Type Cover keyboard dock – usually sold separately from £100 – included free.
These are really good bargains, and if you’re after a Surface Pro 6 for light work and streaming media, they’re an ideal choice.
Surface Pro 6 Black Friday deals include a £699 bundle, which sees you getting a Core i5 Surface Pro 6 with 128GB of internal storage plus a Type Cover dock (for a total saving of £230) or a £899 deal for a Surface Pro 6 with a Core i5 CPU and 256GB of storage and a Type Cover (representing a saving of £350 altogether).
Elsewhere, Microsoft has also heavily discounted Surface Pro 6s which feature the more advanced Intel Core i7 CPUs (i7-8650U). These devices are better suited to creative work, but there aren’t any bundle deals currently available which will see you getting a free Type Cover – and you’ll want a keyboard with your Surface Pro 6, if you plan on doing any serious work on it.
On the plus side, Microsoft is selling all of the Core i7 Surface Pro 6s with a £200 discount – meaning you can pick up one of these, buy a Type Cover dock, and still have made a decent saving. Even if you bought the most expensive Type Covers – which usually sell for £150 – you’re still making a saving.
In our review, we said: “If you’re someone who needs a light and portable laptop, and you like the idea of also being able to kick back at end of the day and stream a TV show at home… then the Surface Pro 6 has obvious appeal.”
Surface Laptop 2
The Surface Laptop 2 is similar to the Surface Pro 6 in terms of performance. Both models feature the same Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors, and both are lightweight, compact devices geared towards office workers, students, or anyone who needs to work on the move.
The Black Friday Surface Laptop deals Microsoft has launched are less varied than those for the Surface Pro – it’s £200 off of every model from the Surface Laptop 2 line-up. That’s still a fantastic bargain, for a laptop that in our early tests has given us over ten hours of battery life, every time.
We’ve yet to publish our full review of the Surface Laptop 2, but we have received a review sample, which we’re currently testing.
Here are our thoughts so far:
“The Surface Laptop 2’s display is not by any means best-in-class, but for what it is, it’s very, very good… people buying this, who want a crisp, high contrast screen for writing, pivot tables and bingeing the latest Man In The High Castle series, will be perfectly happy with this. Combined with the excellent battery and good overall performance, the Surface Laptop 2 is a luxurious daily driver for those who want a lightweight, powerful laptop for office work and entertainment.”
As I said above, the deals on the Surface Go are not that great. But if you were already in the market for this mini tablet-laptop hybrid, then a saving is still a saving. It’s better than a 0% discount.
Microsoft’s Surface Go is like the junior version of the Surface Pro. It has a smaller display, has and a less powerful processor, but it’s lighter, easier to lug around and it’s more than capable of handling everyday work tasks, so if you don’t need that extra space and power, then the Surface Go is your convertible of choice.
Microsoft is trimming the prices of the 64GB and 128GB Surface Gos (by £25 and £37, respectively), if you buy them as part of a bundle with a Type Cover keyboard dock (from £100), you’ll also get £20 off of a licence for Microsoft Office 365 Home, which, if you’re going to pick up one of these for work or studying, is a welcome saving.
In our review, we said:
“With the middling performance and not-cheap cost when you factor in the Type Cover, the Surface Go can’t quite reach the heights of the 9.7-inch iPad, but the relative versatility that Windows 10 offers means the ultraportable Surface Go is still a solid alternative…
“Microsoft’s operating system arguably gives users far greater freedom than Android and iOS. And, if you, or where you’re working or studying prefers Microsoft Office to Google Docs, then the Surface Go could prove to be the superior option for bashing out essays and reports.”
Surface Book 2
The Surface Book 2 is a powerful laptop aimed at creatives. Released late last year, its not the most cutting edge creative device out there, and the colour gamut coverage means that digital photographers will probably want to pass on this, but the excellent drawing experience and high sRGB coverage may appeal to cartoonists, art students and comic book artists.
In our review we said: “If you’re a power user for whom money is no object, you’ll struggle to do better than the Surface Book. Featuring a super-swish design, cutting-edge hardware and a pleasingly bloatware-free Windows install, it’s hard to fault the Surface Book 2 for most tasks.
“…Featuring a whopping 4096 pressure-sensitivity levels, outside of the Wacom MobileStudio Pro, there aren’t many tablets as accurate as the Surface Book…
“…The Surface Dial makes things even better. It was originally launched with the Surface Studio, and in my opinion is one of the best things to happen to the Surface line. The dial acts as an customisable control when placed on the Surface Book’s screen, letting you scroll through active layers or adjust brush sizes in Photoshop, for example.”
