The top-of-the-line Microsoft Surface Laptop Go currently retails for $700, taking $200 off the standard price tag. In our initial review, Monica Chin thought the original $900 price tag was a bit steep. However, this deal makes the original version of this laptop a little more palatable. This compact laptop is equipped with an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8 GB RAM and 256 GB built-in storage. While this is by far the best price we’ve seen for this laptop, we don’t recommend paying more for this particular setup.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go

Microsoft’s budget-friendly version of the Surface Laptop, the Laptop Go, has a lower resolution screen, less power, and fewer features. But it’s considerably cheaper, and it might be what you’re looking for if the Surface Go is too small.

The slightly improved sequel to the original Laptop Go, the Surface Go 2, is also heavily discounted, with most configurations discounted by $150 off their regular price. The flagship model has an Intel Core M3, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and costs just $580, making it the lowest price we’ve seen for this laptop. According to our review, the Surface Go 2 is improved over the original, but barely. As with the previous model, the price made this laptop’s specs a bit hard to sell. However, with this deal, it’s a little easier to recommend.

Microsoft’s Surface Go 2 is a full-featured Windows tablet with a detachable keyboard and compatible stylus. It’s light and compact, with a solid webcam and sturdy stand.

This model of the Surface Laptop Pro 7 has been marked down by $400, bringing the total price down to just $800. This configuration normally costs over $1,000, making it one of the better prices we’ve ever seen for this particular model. have seen. This configuration features an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. Microsoft is also offering a great deal on a more powerful model with a Core i7 CPU and doubling the RAM and storage space for $1,300, making $600 less than the normal MSRP. This is also an excellent deal, but if you simply need more storage, it would be more cost effective to invest in a MicroSD card. Neither model comes with a Typer Cover or Surface Pen, but Microsoft also offers discounts on these accessories, whether you buy them alone or as part of a bundle. Read our review.

A rock-solid entry in the Surface lineup of laptops, the Surface Pro 7 Plus is currently available at a solid discount, but only if you buy one as part of a bundle. The two models on offer both pack 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD, but use different processors. The lower version uses an Intel Core i3 CPU and costs $650, while the Core i5 version costs $750. Regardless of which version you choose, this $250 discount is the best price you can currently get for this laptop, especially when you throw the Surface Pro Type Cover into the mix.

The Cover is the only required part of this bundle, which is normally available for $130 but is up to $50 as part of this bundle. You can also save on other accessories like the Surface Pen and services like Microsoft 365, but these are completely optional. Read our review.

However, unlike the 7 Plus bundle on offer, you are required to add both a Microsoft 365 subscription and a Microsoft security plan to your purchase. These mandatory add-ons cost a minimum of $190 for your purchase. If you’re looking for these extra goodies, it’s a great way to save on the accessories, but otherwise we recommend using the 7 Plus bundle instead.
