Microsoft's Surface Laptop is on sale for $699 at Amazon, a huge $300 discount

Microsoft’s slim and sleek Surface laptop might be marketed towards busy students, but it’s one of the better notebooks anybody could buy, and today it's on a steep discount. Amazon is selling the entry-level Surface Laptop for $699, down from a list price of $999.

This laptop is light and easy to take along wherever you go, with a weight of just 2.76 pounds and a thickness of 0.6 inches. And it lasts forever, surviving nearly 13 hours in our Surface Laptop review’s battery rundown test. The SSD and Core i5 chip inside should deliver plenty of pep for everyday performance needs, and the Surface Book’s touchpad feels great.

We didn't love that the Surface Laptop only runs the pared-down Windows 10 S operating system, but you can upgrade to the full-fat Windows 10 Pro for free. Even before this discount, the Surface Laptop’s portability, long battery life, and well-rounded performance make it a great choice for anybody looking for a notebook that can comfortably be carried around—and used—all day long.
