If you’ve been on the lookout for a cheap (but awesome) laptop, the latest round of pre-Labor Day sales from Microsoft has plenty of options that could just be what you’re looking for.
A couple of superb 2-in-1 laptop deals have caught our eye especially, including this Microsoft Surface Pro 7 and type cover bundle for just $549 (was $749). Even though this is the baseline model (which is still pretty fast), we think the price here is exceptional. Not only is it $50 cheaper than other retailers, but you’re also getting a free type cover here, which will enable you to use this nifty little 2-in-1 as a traditional laptop if you need to – really great for maximum flexibility.
The two other Labor Day sales on 2-in-1 laptops that have caught our eyes are on this Asus Vivobook Flip for $649.99 (was $749) and this Samsung Notebook 9 Pro for $999 (was $1,249). Both these laptops are a little larger and more traditional than the Surface Pro 7 featured above, but also have a lot more power under the hood. They both run windows (as you’d expect from a Microsoft deal), have at least a Core i5, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD under their hoods, making them a top choice for power users.
Speaking of power, gamers should check out this fantastic deal on a Razer Blade 15 for just $1,599.99 (was $1,799.99), which comes packed with a 10th gen Core i7, RTX 2060, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. It’s a high asking price for sure, but that $200 makes this luxury gaming laptop much more competitively priced versus the competition this week.
