Best Buy’s Memorial Day sale began today ahead of the holiday weekend, and you can snag a Surface Pro 7 with Type Cover for $260 less than usual. The 2-in-1 with a 10th-gen Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is down to $699 right now. If you’ve been on the market for a 2-in-1, it’s always advisable to wait for a sale on a bundle like this because — especially with the Surface Pro 7 — you usually have to pay extra for the keyboard cover.
Getting the Type Cover in this deal fixes one of our gripes with the Surface Pro 7. Paying extra for a piece of hardware that’s essential to daily use is never ideal. Plus, we really like Microsoft’s keyboard cover: the Alcantara fabric gives it a luxurious feel, and the keys and overall layout of the accessory makes for a comfortable typing experience.
We also like the Pro 7’s solid build, powerful performance and its USB-C charging port. While the configuration on sale isn’t the most powerful, it should be more than enough for basic tasks like checking email, shopping online and answering coworkers’ Slack messages. Those on an even tighter budget should consider Microsoft’s own holiday deal on the Surface Go 2 — you can get a bundle with the more affordable tablet and a Type Cover starting at $550.
Best Buy has a bunch of other decent deals in its Memorial Day sale as well. Crucial’s 1TB MX500 internal SSD is down to $98 — not an all-time low, but close to it — Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S7 has been discounted to $579 and the Ninja Foodi 5-in-1 indoor grill with air fryer function is on sale for $190.
