Surface Book 2 discounted by up to $400 at Microsoft

If you have yet to snag a Surface Book 2, Microsoft is currently offering a solid deal at its online store.

The discount applies to the base 13.5-inch model with a 7th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, 256GB of storage, and 8GB of RAM. The discount drops the price from $1,499 to $1,099, saving $400 (via MSPU). It's certainly not the most powerful configuration you can get your hands on, but this model offers a decent amount of oomph for your money.

Since the Surface Book 2's launch, Microsoft has started allowing the laptop to be configured with a newer, 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor. There are also plenty of other options in the mix, ranging from Intel's 8th Gen Core i7 processor to upwards of 1TB of storage and 16GB of RAM. Of course, you can also step up to the larger, 15-inch model if you've got the extra cash.

This deal is set to run through May 4.
