I rarely make purchasing recommendations here. I realize that everyone has varying tastes and of course varying needs from their tech. However I wanted to pass on this deal that is going on over at Microsoft. My laptop of choice for almost the past 2 years (a lifetime for me in respect to my tech) has been the Microsoft Surface Book.
If you’re looking for a powerful, yet portable, 2-in-1, Microsoft’s Surface Book has probably come across your radar a time or two. There’s no denying that they are a bit on the more expensive side, but there are ways to get them for less.
Right now you can pick up the Intel Core i5 model with 128GB SSD for just $883 as a certified refurb. Normally, this configuration runs for around $1,499 in new condition and $1,149 as a refurb, so you’ll save $266 right now. There are other models available, like the 256GB Intel Core i7 variant for $1,374 or the decked out 512GB Intel Core i7 with 16GB of RAM for $1,766.
You shouldn’t have to worry about it being a refurbished model, though. Microsoft states:
Good as new, each refurbished Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 undergo a rigorous refurbishing process that includes hardware and cosmetic quality inspections, software updating, and diagnostic testing. And all refurbished Surface devices are backed by a manufacturer’s limited one-year hardware warranty.
Microsoft does not state how long these prices are good for, so you won’t want to wait too long before making your purchase. Whether you are looking for something basic, or something with killer specs, you can get it right now at a pretty substantial discount. Don’t miss out.
