Which Microsoft Surface is best for you?

Surface Pro Type Cover for $130: This Keyboard Case is one of our favorite accessories. The cover is easy to attach, the clicky keys are satisfying to type on, and it’s the least expensive option for the Surface Pro line. It’s compatible with Surface Pro 8 and earlier. There is a similar one Typographic sleeve for the Surface Go line that also costs $130.

Surface Pro Signature Keyboard for $126: The Pro Signature Keyboard is expensive, but it’s the best option if you’re using the Surface Pro X or Surface Pro 8 with Slim Pen 2. It comes with built-in storage for the stylus that doubles as a charger. That way, you won’t have to worry about losing it or running out of battery.

Surface pencil for $100: The Surface Pen is compatible with countless Surface devices, so it’s useful if you’re always switching between your laptop and Microsoft tablet. It features precision inking, tilt-to-shade ink, along with thousands of pressure points and virtually zero lag. Unlike the Slim Pen, which supports wireless charging, the Surface Pen is battery-powered.

Surface Slim Pen 2 for $130: With the second-generation Slim Pen, Microsoft added haptic feedback and lower latency (drawing and writing should feel better). We liked using it with the Surface Pro 8, but it’s also compatible with a variety of other Surface devices. It’s an ideal accessory if you depend on your tablet to take notes or draw.

Logitech K380 Wireless Keyboard for $40: If you want an affordable Bluetooth keyboard to use with your Surface device, we like Logitech’s K380 Wireless Keyboard. It’s affordable, offers a pleasant writing experience, and is compact. It also comes in a super cute pink color.

Twelve South StayGo Mini USB-C hubs for $60: Ports can be a bit scarce on Surface devices. This hub from Twelve South comes with a USB-A port, an HDMI, a headphone jack, and a USB-C port for direct charging. You can plug it into the device or extend it with the included cable.

Microsoft Adaptive Accessories ($15 to $45): Microsoft offers a range of PC hardware for people with limited mobility that includes a programmable button, an adaptive mouse, and a hub to connect them to a PC wirelessly.

Protect your surface with Microsoft Complete

If you’re hard on your devices, get the Full Microsoft Extended Warranty. Starting at $99, it gives you additional warranty coverage, plus two accidental damage claims with a $49 deductible. Microsoft will provide up to four years of coverage specifically for Surface devices and will cover things like broken screens, drops, and spills.

You can get Microsoft Complete in different ways. You can add it in real time when you purchase a Surface device. But if you’re not sure you need it, you can make an appointment with a Microsoft product expert, add it directly through the Surface app, or contact Microsoft Store support. However, it’s worth noting that you’ll have up to 45 days after purchase to add a protection plan.

Should I wait to buy?

No. In September, Microsoft launched a new Surface Laptop Studio 2 and Surface Laptop Go 3. There’s also a new Surface Go 4, but the update is strictly for business consumers. More recently, Microsoft announced a new Surface Pro (11th Edition) and Surface Laptop (7th Edition). These are the successors to the Surface Pro 9 and Surface Laptop 5, but the company no longer follows a numerical naming structure, instead relying on “editions.” Both devices are currently available for pre-order with full availability starting June 18.

We’re still waiting for the Surface Studio 3 (the all-in-one desktop). The latest version was released in October 2022. Microsoft has not yet released details about a next-generation model.
