Until November 2nd, you can save $200 on selected 13.5" Surface Laptops. Eligible models include Sandstone, Black, Cobalt Blue and Platinum colors, and depending on the color you choose, nearly every spec configuration can be had with the $200 discount. The only model not included in the deal is the entry-level $999.99 model, but we reckon its 128GB SSD storage is just too restrictive for long-term use.

Our top bang-per-buck choice would be the 13.5" Intel Core i7 Surface Laptop 3 with 16GB RAM and a 256GB SSD. Usually this option would be $1,599.99, but with the $200 discount, it could be yours for a very tempting $1,399.99.

Why Surface Laptop 3? With its vibrant 13.5" 2256 x 1504 PixelSense display, your get a stunning screen to show off your images and videos, while the latest 10th-gen quad-core Intel Core i5 and i7 processors combined speed and exceptional power efficiency. 8GB or 16GB of RAM is available, though you'll really need to go for 16GB to stay reasonably futureproofed. Storage options include SSDs in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB capacities. But the arguably the biggest appeal with the Surface Laptop is its portability. At just 14.5mm thick and 1.29kg, it's Microsoft's answer to the MacBook Air, and is just as portable. If you're after a super thin and light Windows laptop with up to 11.5 hours battery life, now's the time to buy a Surface Laptop 3.
