The Microsoft Surface Book line up is one of the best laptops available today and just as a reminder of how it cares for you, Microsoft is offering a very sweet deal for the Intel Core i5 variant – a deal that sees the laptop’s price drop by up to $150.
If you are into the market for the new Surface Book laptop or simply a new laptop, you might want to take a look at what the Windows OS maker is having on offer. Of course, this deal is only available for Intel Core i5 variants and nothing more. In addition, keep in mind that this deal will not last forever, in fact, it is here until May 14, so hurry while it still runs.
To take advantage of the discount, you will be required to get the Surface Book variant with Intel Core i5 processor, a RAM of 8GB and onboard storage of 128GB; a similar variant but with more storage of 256GB; or a premium version that features the same processor, RAM, 256GB of storage and adds a dGPU unit. The original prices of these Surface Book variants are $1499, $1699 and $1899, respectively. However, Microsoft is now offering them with $150 off these prices.
Microsoft is adding sugar to what is already a sweet deal by availing the Surface Dock with $30 off the normal price as long as you buy it alongside the Surface Book.
