Amazon has shaved $200 off of the regular price of the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2, bringing it down to just $799. This is also great timing, as many are in the midst of back to school shopping right now, and will be able to get a new laptop for a pretty good price.
The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 is perfect for students. It's a pretty lightweight laptop with some great battery life too.
This laptop features a 13.5-inch touchscreen display, that can get 14 and a half hours on a charge. It is powered by the Intel Core i5 chipset, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. That's not the best specs out there, but this is a pretty decently specced laptop. With 8GB of RAM, you're going to be able to run most programs without any real issues, which is definitely a good thing. Now the storage might be on the low side, but remember that you do have OneDrive here, as well as Google Drive available for storing content.
This particular model is the Platinum model. Which has a really good looking keyboard. That keyboard has alcantara on it, which makes it feel very soft, and gives it a rather unique look. Microsoft does also have a few other colors available for the Surface Laptop 2.
If you're looking for a new laptop, the Surface Laptop 2 is definitely the one to get. It offers just about everything you need, coming in at under three pounds, and nearly 15 hours of battery life. It also has a pretty large display. Of course, it has Windows 10 Home instead of that restricted version on the original Surface Laptop.
