For those looking for an excellent light computing solution, it's hard to argue against the Surface Laptop – well, except for the usual steep price.
Luckily, today is Pi Day, and Best Buy (along with Microsoft) is discounting the $799 entry-level Surface Laptop for just $699. That's a fair price for what is arguably the most beautiful Ultrabook on the market.
Spec-wise, you're getting the basics here, but if you are using it for web browsing, email, using Microsoft Office, or watching movies this configuration is perfect:
- Intel 7th generation Core i3 m3-7Y30 processor.
- 4GB of RAM.
- 128GB of internal storage (SSD).
The rest, including that 13.5-inch PixelSense touch display, Dolby Audio speakers, and what I think is one of the best keyboards and trackpads around is all here too.
Microsoft is running the same deal too online and in its physical stores but being able to order from Best Buy (or walk in and grab it today) is a better option for many.
If, however, you want more power, you can save $200 on the Core i5 model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. That version usually costs $1,299 but Microsoft has it for just $1,099.
