Microsoft is running some deep discounts on its devices for Black Friday, and there are three deals in particular that should catch your eye.
Xbox One S
A perfect gift (or a great gift for yourself), this is the cheapest Xbox One S has ever been, at $189, $50 off its normal price. It’s a great price for a very solid console — we especially dig its backward compatibility, which lets me delve into older titles like Red Dead Redemption of the Fable series from the last console generation. Plus you can snag a free game with it.
Microsoft’s Surface Pro is still king of the hill when it comes to hybrid laptops. I can attest that it really can replace a laptop if you’re not doing things that require a ton of processing power. There are two deals here. The Surface Pro i5 with 128GB storage is $229 off, bringing it down to $899. And the Surface Pro i5 with 256 GB of storage is $329 off, bringing it down to an even $1,099. Both come bundled with the Black Type Cover.
Harman Kardon Invoke Smart Speaker
We loved the sound of the Harman Kardon Invoke smart speaker when we tried it out earlier this year, and Cortana is a surprisingly agile voice assistant. Microsoft has taken $100 off its price for Black Friday, making it just $99.
Heads up: If you click links and buy things, New York may make a little money off the purchase. That said, we don’t recommend stuff we wouldn’t buy (or haven’t bought) for ourselves.
