Not everyone gets up in the morning ready to spend $1,300, but just in case you are, Amazon is currently offering an excellent deal on a 512GB configuration of the Microsoft Surface Pro 8, discounting this variant of the high-end tablet to $1,299.99. Normally available for $1,899.99, this is the best price we’ve seen — by far — for this model of the Surface Pro 8, which includes 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and an Intel Core i7 CPU. Amazon’s discount, unfortunately, doesn’t include the Type Cover as part of this deal, but the handy protective peripheral can still be purchased piecemeal from Microsoft for $179.99. We’re expecting Microsoft to announce a successor to the Pro 8 in the coming months, but with nothing confirmed just yet, this discount is still worth checking out.

The Surface Pro 8 is a slick and modern tablet with small bezels surrounding its 13-inch 120Hz display with a sharp resolution of 2880 x 1920. Although it offers a somewhat limited selection of ports, the performance of the Surface Pro 8 is remarkable for a device of its size. Read our review.

The new Surface Pro 8 is Microsoft’s biggest upgrade in years. The excellent 2-in-1 touts Thunderbolt 4 support, a 120Hz display, a better camera, and a more modern design.

If you need a more capable keyboard that can pair with your new tablet, Amazon is offering a rare discount on the Logitech MX Mechanical keyboard with clicky switches priced at $157.99 instead of $169.99. The MX Mechanical is a straightforward productivity-focused keyboard with a subdued aesthetic. The keyboard can pair with a variety of devices using either Bluetooth connectivity or an included Logitech Bolt receiver, which is just a 2.4GHz wireless dongle that Logitech claims can lower latency and bolster security. You can also remap specific keys and adjust power-saving features through the Logitech Options Plus software. Read our review for the mini version of the Logitech MX Mechanical.

The MX Mechanical is a full-size low-profile mechanical keyboard from Logitech and is available with clicky, tactile, or linear switches.

If we include a keyboard in our deals post, you can bet that we’re going to point you in the direction of a great and discounted mouse, too. The white colorway of Razer’s compact Orochi V2 gaming mouse is currently discounted at Amazon and Best Buy to $34.99 from its usual price of $69.99. The Orochi V2 can be powered by a single AA battery or a single AAA if you want to cut down on weight. The mouse features an 18K DPI sensor and can pair with devices either via Bluetooth or 2.4GHz wireless.

The Razer Orochi V2 can run on a AA or AAA battery, offering up to 950 hours of play with a AA battery while connected to Bluetooth. Its 2.4GHz mode can run for up to 425 hours. It’ll last around a third of the longevity with a AAA battery inside.

If you’re looking for a stellar deal on a capable Bluetooth speaker, this excellent sub-$100 deal on the JBL Flip 5 is still happening. If you’re looking to bring home one of these handy gadgets, the Flip 5 is currently discounted to $74.99 at Woot in its red colorway. This is one of the best discounts we’ve seen on this IPX7-rated waterproof Bluetooth speaker. It was originally priced at $129.99, though most colors of this model are about $99.99 at Amazon. The Flip 5 can pair with devices using either Bluetooth connectivity or a 3.5mm audio jack, and the speaker can last for up to 12 hours on a single charge. This product includes a one-year limited warranty through JBL.

JBL’s Flip 5 is a no-frills portable Bluetooth speaker that offers a rugged waterproof exterior, stereo pairing, and all-day battery life.

  • Speaking from personal experience, there isn’t much you can’t blend in a Vitamix. Currently, Vitamix is offering the TurboBlend three-speed blender for $249.95 instead of its usual $399.99. The TurboBlend might be a little overkill for your home kitchen, but if you enjoy making shakes or blending other food items into a consistent puree, this is likely the last blender you’ll ever need to own. It includes the motor base, a 64-ounce container, a tamper to push ingredients down toward the blade, and a cookbook.
  • If you want to spend no more than $50 on a gaming headset, you could do a lot worse than the Epos Sennheiser GSP 300. The GSP 300 usually costs $79 but is discounted to $44.99 at Woot. The GSP 300 is a wired gaming headset that’s a bit larger than most, but if its wide-set design doesn’t bother you, this could be a great low-cost option if all you need are the basics, including 3.5mm connectivity and a capable boom microphone.
