The Editors' Choice Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is on sale for just $799.99 at Best Buy. That's the lowest price we've ever seen for Microsoft's premium laptop. The base configuration packs an Intel Core i5-1035G7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.
Microsoft's Surface Laptop 3 gives Apple's MacBook Air a run for its proverbial money. Like the MacBook Air, the Surface Laptop has a sleek, minimalist aesthetic characterized by smooth curves and clean surfaces. However, Microsoft's laptop blows away the MacBook Air when it comes to specs.
This Surface Laptop 3 includes a 13.5-inch (2256 x 1504) display, a 10th-gen Core i5-1035G7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.
In our Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 review, we loved its elegant premium design and sharp, vivid display. Though it lacks Thunderbolt 3 ports, we awarded it Editor's Choice for its good performance, decent battery life and comfortable keyboard.
Design-wise, the Surface Laptop 3 is a classy notebook with a modern design and premium materials. At 12.1 x 8.8 x 0.6-inches and a weight of 2.9 pounds, the Surface Laptop 3 is larger and heavier than the Dell XPS 13 (11.9 x 8.8 x 0.5 inches, 2.7 pounds), the Apple MacBook Pro (12 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches, 3 pounds) and the HP Spectre x360 13 (12.1 x 7.7 x 0.7 inches, 2.7 pounds).
Port-wise, like most 13-inch laptops, the Surface Laptop 3's selection is modest. It has a magnetic Surface Connect port, a USB 3.1 Type-A port and a USB Type-C input. There's also a headphone/mic jack built-in for your must have peripherals.
With its 10th-gen chip and all-metal finish, the Surface Laptop 3 is a worthy successor to the Surface Laptop 2. At $200 off, it's a solid deal if refined hardware and Windows 10 power are what you look for in a laptop.
If you need more horsepower, the Surface Laptop 3 with Core i7-1065G7 CPU and 16GB of RAM is also on sale for $1,299 ($300 off) at Best Buy.
