Are you even going back to school if you don't have a laptop? In the day-and-age of remote work and Zoom classrooms... CAN you go back to school without a laptop? Don't worry. If you're lacking in the portable computer department, Microsoft has you covered. As part of its back-to-school savings, Microsoft is offering up to $150 off the Surface Laptop Go (opens in new tab). Save on two different configurations of the Laptop Go and ensure you're ready for the new semester.

This is just one of the ways you can save at Microsoft right now. You could also look into getting a Surface Pro 7 (opens in new tab) for up to $200 off its regular price. Or if you're on a more strict budget for your laptop, try the Asus VivoBook (opens in new tab), which is $140 off and down to $359 right now. Most of these deals end in the next week or so, so grab one while you can.

When we reviewed the Surface Laptop Go we gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and a The Best badge. Daniel Rubino said, "...looking at the core features – typing, trackpad, audio, display, size, weight, performance, and battery life – Laptop Go does an incredibly good job of balancing all that against its $550 to $700 price."

The most basic version of the Laptop Go is $550 and it's not really a part of this sale. The next best version is the first one on sale, and it's down to $599.99 from $700. So for just $50 more than the basic version, you get double the storage, double the RAM, a faster SSD, and even a fingerprint reader.

This is a great laptop for students because it's incredibly lightweight at just 2.45 pounds. That means you can drop it in your bag and take it with you even as you run from class to class. Plus it has a battery life that can last for up to 13 hours. You won't need to stop to plug in. Just keep taking notes and move on to the next situation.
