If you've been eyeing up a Surface Book 2 but couldn't justify spending a minimum of £1,499 for an Intel Core i5 model, and live outside the US, you might be in luck. Microsoft is now selling the new entry-level Surface Book 2 that was recently introduced in the US in more markets, for £1,149 for a limited time, which is a fair bit cheaper than the original £1499 price tag.

So, for £350 less, what are you sacrificing? As it turns out, not a lot. The only difference between the new £1,149 model and the slightly better £1499 model is storage. The new entry-level Surface Book 2 comes with just 128GB of internal storage compared to the £1,499 model's 256GB storage. That's not a bad trade-off for a £350 price cut.

This should make the Surface Book 2 a much more approachable and accessible device for potential customers. When the Surface Book 2 first launched, it was incredibly expensive compared to the prices of the original Surface Book when it launched, and indeed alongside the Surface Laptop and Surface Pro.

Of course, whether or not any Intel Core i5 model of the Surface Book 2 is worth it is up for debate. With no dedicated GPU, and only dual-core offerings, many might be better suited getting a Surface Pro or Surface Laptop for cheaper instead. It all comes down to what you need out of your device.

The new entry-level model is now on sale in the UK, France, and Germany. Is the new, entry-level Surface Book 2 price enough for you to finally consider one? Or would you rather spend a little less on a Surface Laptop or Surface Pro for the same specs instead? Let us know in the comments!
