The model on sale features a 13.5-inch 2256 x 1504 PixelSense touch display, 1.6GHz Core i5-8250U quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. While this may be the base configuration, it packs enough speed for serious multitasking. In our lab tests, the laptop never stuttered as we split its screen between a 1080p YouTube video and more than 12 Chrome tabs.
As for the display, it produces 176 percent of the sRGB spectrum, which rockets past the 114 percent category average. What this means in real-word use is that the screen produces bright, vivid images.
If 128GB of storage seems too paltry, Amazon has the Surface Laptop 2 with 256GB SSD on sale for $999, which is $300 off its retail price.
