The Surface Laptop 2 was one of the best laptops released in 2018 and still puts up a good fight against the best laptops available now. Along with its elegant design highlighted by an Alcantara fabric deck, the Surface Laptop 2 offers fast performance, a bright, vivid display and solid battery life, all in a sleek, ultraportable chassis. While we wish it had a USB-C port and faster SSD, the Surface Laptop 2 remains an excellent choice for students or business users who travel frequently.
If you can wait another semester, the Surface Laptop 3 is expected to be unveiled by the end of the year. However, you won't find a deal that's as good as this one anytime soon.
