Microsoft details Black Friday 2016 deals: sales start November 24

Some companies have already started their Black Friday sales, but Microsoft isn’t one of them. The company’s deals won’t be available until November 24, but they have been detailed ahead of time, giving you a chance to figure out where your money’s going. In addition to expected items like discounted Xbox One consoles and Surface tablets, Microsoft is also offering deals on things like a year of Office 365.

Microsoft’s latest products are included in the Black Friday sale. There’s the Surface Pro 4, for example, which Microsoft plans to offer for $799 USD versus the regular $999 USD price tag. There’s also the Surface Book with a $1,499 cost versus $1,899. Other models are also offered at greater discounts: Dell’s Inspiron 15, for example, will drop from $749 USD to $399 USD.
