The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 brings some improvements over the old model, for a price that is almost sacrificed today. Indeed, we find on Amazon the premium tablet in a pack with its keyboard for 899 euros instead of 1,329 euros usually, or 32% savings.
Premium hybrid tablets work like a laptop, but in an even more compact format. Convenient for workers and students who have to carry their machine everywhere with them. In this category, Microsoft is also a champion with its Surface Pro and the eighth model (therefore the latest) currently benefits from an irresistible offer. We are talking about more than 400 euros reduction for a pack including the tablet and the keyboard.
The strengths of the Surface Pro 8
- Its 13-inch 120 Hz screen is 11% larger than before
- Its high power thanks to the Intel Core i5 11 gen
- The keyboard is included, but not the stylus
Instead of the usual 1,329 euros, the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 (128 GB SSD + 8 GB of RAM) and the QWERTY keyboard are now available on sale at 899 euros on Amazon. Note that this is the lowest price ever offered on the e-commerce giant’s site.

The ultimate hybrid tablet
Sold directly with its keyboard in this good plan, the Surface Pro 8 is the best choice if you want a high-performance hybrid tablet that is easy to transport. Microsoft’s slate weighs only 899 grams on the scale, while laptops are often over 1 kilo. Its screen seems bigger than before, but the tablet is not more imposing. The slab is simply stretched further on the edges, which then become very thin. The brand speaks of 11% more space, still with a diagonal of 13 inches in 2:3 format. Moreover, the refresh rate at 120 Hz is part of it.
In your bag will then always be a powerful machine, since the Surface Pro 8 is equipped with an 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor, with 8 GB of RAM which comes to support everything. With such a configuration, you will have no trouble multitasking, opening heavy software, browsing the Internet with thousands of open tabs, etc. Microsoft specifies that the performance has doubled compared to the Surface Pro 7. In addition, the 128 GB SSD streamlines everything for fast execution of the operating system (Windows 11) and software.
Some practical additions
If we do not generally take a tablet to take photos, it is still important to note that Microsoft has made efforts this year. There are two sensors, one at the front of 5 megapixels and one at the rear of 10 megapixels, which is capable of filming up to 4K. The other pleasant additions are made at the level of the connectors, which now accommodates two USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports and definitively abandons the USB-A port. It is also possible to easily change the SSD, practical if you want to increase the internal storage.
As far as autonomy is concerned, the Surface Pros have always been good students and this is not the eighth iteration that breaks the rule. The recent premium tablet from the Redmond firm offers 16 hours of endurance in typical use, which can make almost two days of work. Compatibility with 65W fast charging is present to quickly recover percentages.
