Amazon is discounting the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 right now. Where you can $200 on the base-model or up to $310 on the other higher-end models.
The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is a somewhat mid-range laptop from Microsoft, in a premium body. It does have that alcantara keyboard, which feels absolutely amazing to type on. Which makes it really good for those that need a new laptop for back to school.
Inside, the Intel Core i5 chipset is running the show, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. That is SSD storage, so it's going to be plenty fast, and great for transferring files.
Sure it's not a lot of storage, but there are still USB-C and USB-A ports for using external hard drives.
It is pretty decent for gaming, coming with Intel Iris Plus graphics. That's not the absolute best for gaming, but it'll get the job done. Just don't expect this to replace a dedicated gaming machine.
Battery life is also somewhat decent here, we're looking at eleven and a half hours, according to Microsoft. Depending on what you're doing with your laptop, you may see more or less battery life.
Finally, it comes with Windows 10 Home, and not Windows 10 S. So you're getting the full version of Windows, which is really nice to have.
At $800, the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is actually a really solid laptop. Especially for back to school, or even if you just need a new laptop right now. With most kids being stuck at home and doing virtual learning for the foreseeable future, and most adults also being stuck at home working from home. The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is going to be a really great purchase at this price.
