Microsoft's Back-to-School sale is a big one, and you've got a chance to save even if you aren't necessarily a student. Check out this great selection of Surface deals (opens in new tab) or these other PC deals (opens in new tab). The prices include deals like the Surface Laptpop Go for $549.99, the Surface Duo for $650, or $200 off the HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 laptop. There's such a big selection of discounted machines that you'll have to scan them all to find your favorite device.
If you are a student or a teacher, and can verify that with an email from your school, you can save even more with up to 10% off all these prices (opens in new tab) just for you. Probably the best deal available from Microsoft is students can get Office 365 for absolutely free (opens in new tab).
Microsoft Back-to-School Sale
Not all of these deals are student exclusive, but the ones that are require a student email address. The savings cover a wide range of Microsoft products, too, so there's a ton of ways to save for everyone.
The Surface Laptop Go (opens in new tab) deals start at $549.99, but even the most advanced version is on sale for $899.99. So you can pay less than $1,000 and get a laptop we said "nails all the fundamentals to deliver a surprisingly delightful computing experience" in our review.
Not everything is about the Surface in this sale. The PC deals (opens in new tab) include laptops, all-in-ones, and desktops from major brands like Lenovo, HP, and Dell. The HP Spectre x360 laptop (opens in new tab) starts at $1,499.99, which is $110 off its regular price. This is a great machine that we gave 5 out of 5 stars and a The Best badge in our review. We said "It ticks all the right boxes — it's just a fun laptop to use, especially for typing."
Watch Microsoft's Education page (opens in new tab) and tay on top of everything Microsoft has to offer students, teachers, and anyone else just genuinely interested in a new laptop at a discount.
J.D. Levite has been in the deals game since 2012. He has posted daily deals at Gizmodo, The Wirecutter, The Sweethome, and now covers deals for Android Central, iMore, and Windows Central. He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.
As a owner of a Surface Go 2, I would suggest the m3 processor and at least 8GB of RAM. Hard drive space is fine and eMMc vs SSD won't affect this device too much as the processor will be the bottle neck, not the drive I/Os and you can always add a SD Card to expand the storage.
