Microsoft previews its Black Friday deals, including serious savings on new Surface devices
Black Friday 2019 may still be more then three weeks away, but Microsoft is already teasing some of the discounts and deals that it is going to be offering. You can expect to make big savings not only on the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3, but also to pick up an HP laptop with 10th Gen Intel Core i3 for under $300.
The official date for Black Friday is November 29 this year, but Microsoft has a number of deals that start before this. In fact, you can start making savings as early as November 21! Here's what's on offer.
- Microsoft Q&A launches to replace TechNet and MSDN forums
- Microsoft releases Windows 10 20H1 Build 19013 with more ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
- Microsoft releases updated PowerToys with new PowerRename tool -- and dark mode!
Over in the Microsoft Store, you can expect to find lots of discounts on Microsoft's own hardware, but there are also deals to be had on kit from other manufacturers. If the recent launch of the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 got you excited, this Black Friday is a great time to buy as even these brand new devices have been heavily discounted.
Starting November 22, you'll be able to save up to $230 on a Surface Pro 7 and Type Cover bundle, while the new Surface Laptop 3 will be available for as little as $999 -- a $300 saving. When November 28 rolls around, select Surface Go devices will be available starting at $299 (saving you $150), and you could also save up to $500 on Surface Book 2.
If you're in the market for a cheap laptop, the HP 15-dy1731ms Laptop (10th Gen Intel Core i3) is due to be reduced to $299 on November 28. For desktop users looking for a monitor upgrade, the Samsung 49" CHG90 QLED Gaming Monitor can be snapped up for just $799 from November 24.
There's $80 to be saved on Samsung Galaxy Watches from 22nd, and up to $200 off Samsung Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ handsets from 21st. You can also expect a batch of Xbox discounts, but Microsoft is yet to reveal details of these.
