Tip: Buy Surface Laptop or Book 2, Get a Free Surface Dock

Posted on July 16, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft Surface with 8 Comments

Microsoft has a great sale over the next 48 hours for Surface Laptop and Surface Book 2 buyers. If you buy either PC, you’ll get a free Surface Dock valued at $200.

“Get a Surface Dock with purchase ($199 value),” the Microsoft Store explains. “Add the dock to your order at checkout. Offer ends July 17.”

You can buy the Surface Laptop now for $799 and up. I strongly recommend going for the $999 configuration (Core i5, 8 GB/128 GB) or better.

You can also buy the Surface Book 2 now for $1199 and up. Microsoft now offers both 13.5- and 15-inch configurations, and there are no bad options here, depending on what you can afford.

Happy shopping. But move quickly.

    The $999 configuration now appears to be the Core i5, 8GB, and 256GB

    Could we buy a SGO (550 one, as per Paul), SL & Dock for $1349... Then return the SL (Surface Laptop) ??? That would get us a Surface Go & Dock for $550?

    This is a bit unfair... I was just considering buying a dock for my SB2 that I paid over 3000USD less than 6 months ago...

      So by your logic there should never be a sale on something because someone paid full price less then 6 months ago?

        I know how the market works. It’s still unfair because it penalizes those who buy the new products early. Next time I will wait for a sale, will this make Microsoft happy? However, I was just airing some frustration

      I use a Surface Dock with my SB2. If you use your gpu a lot it will eat into your battery. No big deal with the integrated graphics, though. Just sucks to grab the machine and go with 60% battery when it's been on the dock for hours.

    Pretty nice deal, especially for the Surface Laptop i5 8GB 256GB model.
