Microsoft has been doing the Crazy Eddie thing with Surface since 2017 began. And now certain Surface Book and Surface Pro models are on sale again.
The biggest news? The entry-level Surface Book is now just $1299, (almost) matching its lowest-ever sales price during the 2016 holiday selling season. That’s $200 off the normal price.
Update: I originally reported the sale price as $1250. Sorry about that. –Paul
As was the case in December, Surface Book requires a rethink at the $1250 price point. This configuration, which includes an Intel Core i5, 8 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of RAM, is the sweet spot, I think. And this price brings it much closer to comparable premium laptops from other PC makers. Just a thought.
Here’s a complete list of the Surface devices on sale from the Microsoft Store. Now through February 25.
Microsoft Surface Book – Intel Core i5, 8 GB, 128 GB. $1299, $200 off.
Microsoft Surface Book – Intel Core i5, 8 GB, 256 GB, dGPU (first-gen). $1649, $250 off.
