In the market for a new thin and light laptop? Now is the perfect time to buy.
Microsoft’s excellent Surface Laptop 4 is heavily discounted in the US, and you have a choice of retailers. Amazon is the obvious option on Prime Day, where you’ll find $300.99 off a mid-spec 13.5in model. This gets you an AMD Ryzen 5 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD for $899 – that’s superb value for money.
However, the big caveat is that you’ll need to be a Prime member to take advantage of the deal. This is completely free for 30 days if you haven’t signed up before, but costs $14.99 per month thereafter.
Other perks include free next-day delivery and full access to the Prime Video streaming service, but there’s another option if you just want a great Surface Laptop 4 deal. The same model is available from the Microsoft Store for just $0.99 more ($899.99), and it’s just one of several configurations that are heavily discounted. Other highlights include $300 off an i5 model with the same RAM and storage or a 15in machine for under $1,000.
The Surface Laptop 4 might be over a year old, but it remains one of the best laptops you can buy. As our four-star review explains, it excels in the three areas many people would consider to be the most important – display, performance and battery life. It makes the device a great option for everyday usage, especially with a free upgrade available to Windows 11.
