If you haven't been keeping up on the news, here's the scoop: Microsoft recently unveiled a lot of new Surface devices. And two of the hottest announcements from the lineup, the Surface Laptop Studio and Surface Duo 2, are now available to preorder at Best Buy. The Surface Go 3 is also available if you're interested in the budget tablet offering.
Pricing for the Duo 2 starts at $1,499 if you want the 128GB version, with the cost jumping up to $1,599 for the 256GB iteration. Meanwhile, the Surface Laptop Studio comes at a variety of costs depending on what kind of specs you want. One comfy default Best Buy offers is the $1,599 config, which features an Intel 11th Gen Core i5 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. But if you feel the need to spend more money in exchange for a better PC, rest assured, Microsoft has left that option open. You can spend over $3,000 on the thing with ease if you opt for a 2TB SSD, 32GB of RAM, and an Intel 11th Gen Core i7.
If you want to spend far less, the Surface Go 3 starts at $399 and scales up from there if you want a faster processor, more storage, or LTE, though the price ceiling doesn't ever hit astronomical heights relative to the Go 3's Surface peers.
You can still get the devices directly from Microsoft, but perhaps you have a few Best Buy gift cards lying around or just prefer BB's online retail setup. Whatever the reason, know that you have options.
We'll update our coverage as more Surface items become available at Best Buy.
The Surface Laptop Studio aims to reinvent how 2-in-1s work. With a pull-to-transform build, haptics, and 120Hz display, the machine has a lot going for it.
The Surface Duo 2 looks to realize the promise the Duo 1 held inside its tiny little folded frame. With a better processor, camera setup, and plenty of other improvements, the Duo 2 is set to be a better experience all around.
