Today, Microsoft has added new versions of the Surface Laptop and Surface Book 2 to their line-up. Both the new variant of the Surface Laptop and the new variant of the Book 2 are lowering the entry-level price of the Surface devices.
The new variant of the Surface Book 2 lowers the price of the entry-level model from $1499 to $1199. It comes with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD. The only difference to the previous entry-level Surface Book 2 is that is only has half of the onboard storage.
These changes are only affecting the 13-inch version of the device. The 15-inch Surface Book still starts at $2499. I had the chance to take a look at the Surface Book 2. You can find my impressions here.
The Surface Book 2 is available from the Microsoft Store.
In addition to the cheaper Surface Book Microsoft also announced the Surface Laptop with an Intel Core m3 processor. This device costs $799 and is $200 cheaper than the previous entry-level Surface Laptop which comes with an Intel Core i5 processor.
Everyone who just needs a laptop for basic tasks like web surfing, Office, and notetaking should have a good time with the Intel Core m3. The Surface Laptop is definitely a great piece of hardware and especially its design is just beautiful. You can find my first impressions on the Surface Laptop here.
