Microsoft Surface Pro 7 — $650, was $960
With a massive discount of $310, this is an amazing time to snap up the Microsoft Surface Pro 7. The 12.3-inch touchscreen laptop offers an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of memory, and 128GB of speedy SSD storage so it has everything you could want from a productivity-based machine. Thanks to its touchscreen, it’s super versatile, happily working well as a laptop or as a tablet, meaning whatever you’re doing, you’ll be able to do it with this.
The Surface Pro 7 only weighs 1.7 pounds and it’s ultra-slim as well as light so you can easily take it out and about with you between classes without any hassle. Thanks to a 10-hour battery life, you won’t have to worry about running out of juice too soon either. Impressively, it also recharges from empty to 80% in just over an hour so a quick coffee break between classes and you’re ready for more.
Portable, stylish, and genuinely useful, the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 is ordinarily priced at $960 making a price cut of $310 a huge deal. It’s available on sale for a limited time only at Best Buy.
