Best Buy has a brand new set of deals every day. The Deals of the Day section is loaded with some good savings today, too, and the featured deal is the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio on sale for $2,699.99. That's $400 off what this configuration would normally go for. This is also $150 better than Microsoft's current price (opens in new tab) on the same configuration, which is part of another sale over at the Microsoft store. This is the best price anywhere is what I'm getting at, and even though this particular model is one of the most expensive options in MIcrosoft's lineup, the savings are worth pointing out in case you're interested. This price will only last through the end of the day, though, as the Deals of the Day section implies. Grab it while you can.
Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio | $400 off (opens in new tab)
A fully-loaded machine that takes Surface to the next level. This one includes an Intel Core i7 processor, 32GB RAM, a 2TB SSD, and even a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics card so you can game on this machine.
Daniel Rubino gave the Laptop Studio 4 out of 5 stars and a Recommended badge in this review you can read for yourself. He said the laptop "delivers a powerful, flexible, workstation-style PC perfect for artists, engineers, and some light gaming. No other laptop currently does everything it can do at this level."
What you get with this configuration is a machine that has an Intel Core i7 processor, 32GB RAM, and a 2TB solid state drive. It is even equipped with a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics card, which is enough to play most modern games at a high level. It has a 14.4-inch screen with a 2400 x 1600 pixel resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and full touchscreen support. You get plenty of extra features, too, including Thunderbolt 4 ports with crazy fast data transfer speeds, Dolby Vision for HDR support, and Dolby Atmos for an improved audio experience.
The Laptop Studio has a unique design that the Surface has made pretty popular at this point, which lets you flex your machine from a laptop to a tablet and back again easily enough. Just simply pull the display forward to activate tablet mode, which gives you the ability to quickly get up and close and personal or use the Surface Pen in unique ways.
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.
Damn that's an expensive laptop. I'd get a gaming laptop for that money, though I'd miss the cutting edge design.
If you don’t value the convertible nature with use of the pen in mind then it shouldn’t be on your radar at all. That’s what pushes the price so high.
Honestly there are gaming laptops you can get for cheaper.
