The Microsoft Surface Book 3 just got a $300 price cut at Best Buy

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, we’re seeing some huge discounts on everything from 4K TVs to the best laptops. It’s like Cyber Week never ended at the big retailers; just check out these Best Buy laptop deals. In fact, Best Buy just took $300 off this 13.5-inch Microsoft Surface Book 3. It’s only $1,300, down from its regular price of $1,600.

When the Microsoft Surface Book 3 emerged this summer, our reviewers loved its performance and unbelievable screen. Pretty much the only negative things we had to say about it involved its price. Well, this deal takes care of that, giving you an amazingly efficient laptop, with a detachable screen, for $300 off.

We called the Surface Pro 3 a “Portable Powerhouse” for good reason. If the Surface Book 3 seems a little large for a 13-inch laptop, it’s because most of the computer’s innards are packed into the display (including the CPU). But inside there you’ll find the motor for the most powerful Surface laptop you can buy. There’s a quad core-powered, 10th-gen Intel Core processor, with tons of RAM and storage, plus the technology that will allow you to draw or write on the high-resolution PixelSense display with the Surface Pen (sold separately). This is a creative’s dream, whether you are designing or drawing for a living or just for fun.

But all those great internals don’t compare top the true appeal of this 2-in-1 laptop, that with one motion you can rip off the screen and have yourself a super powerful tablet. It’s almost too much fun, and too convenient — for work, for school, for everything really. This is the perfect laptop to strap into for a serious day of work from home, or to just grab the screen and toss into your bag if you’ve got a long commute or want to just review some work briefly, or watch a film, on a short flight.

Actually, that flight could be pretty long. This laptop has an amazing battery life: 15.5 hours. And that’s just the beginning of the user-friendly aspects. There’s Dolby Atmos sound to make sure your get the very most out of your content, and your calls. It’s loaded with Windows 10 Home and comes with USB-A and USB-C ports, as well as a full-size SD card slot — so you can connect to whatever you need to. This laptop really does it all.

It’s a great time of year to invest in a new laptop for you and yours. We’re seeing some amazing Surface Pro deals, if you’re looking to compare 2-in-1 laptops. But right now, at Best Buy, you can get $300 off the 13-inch Surface Book 3. It’s down to $1300, from its regular price of $1600, which is a giant discount.
