The top-end Surface Laptop Go 2 is $200 off right now.
We love Microsoft Surface products here at Windows Central, so you bet we’re going to highlight some of the best Prime Day laptop deals between now and the end of next week. Today, we’ve spotted this excellent deal on a top-end Surface Laptop Go 2, with an Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, and 256GB storage for just $599, a $200 saving!
The Surface Laptop Go 2 is Microsoft’s budget-friendly laptop line, featuring a 12.5-inch touchscreen display with thin bezels, an excellent keyboard and trackpad, a premium aluminum and polycarbonate chassis, and a Windows Hello fingerprint reader for quick secure login.

This laptop is perfect for on-the-go working with a 12.5-inch touchscreen display, 11th-Gen Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, and 256GB storage. Whether you’re a student, teacher, office worker, or something in-between, Microsoft’s budget-friendly laptop line is simply excellent. And for just $599, it’d be a waste not to buy one.
Price check: Microsoft $699 | Best Buy $649

Pros: Affordable, small (but not cramped), 11th Gen Intel CPU, solid 720P webcam, good display and build quality

Cons: No keyboard backlighting and the battery life is just ‘ok’
The model on sale here is the top-end config for the Surface Laptop Go 2, maxing out both the storage and RAM. That means it also includes the Windows Hello fingerprint reader in the power button, an omission on the low-end configs. This deal is specific to the Platinum colorway, though the Surface Laptop Go 2 is also available in cool Ice Blue and Sandstone options, though those don’t appear to be on sale for a discount currently. Amazon Prime Day deals from Windows Central• Best deals: Our best (so far)

The Surface Laptop Go 2 is excellent because it uses premium materials in all the places you’re most likely to be touching. That includes the keyboard deck and laptop lid. Polycarbonate is only used on the underside of the laptop to reduce costs, but because it’s on the side you don’t usually see or touch, it ultimately feels much more premium.
Also, if you’re looking for a compact Windows laptop, there really are no other options in this space. Lenovo makes the awesome Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano, which we also highly recommend, but it’s primarily a business laptop and is significantly more expensive (2.5x as much at $1,310).
We also like this laptop because it’s a great option for couch surfing, doing some light work at the coffee shop, and especially for students who want something that easily fits in their bag, is durable, and won’t take up a ton of space on your desk.
Regarding the price, we’ve technically since this a hair cheaper at $566, but that’s usually for refurbished or the rare price drop, likely due to the need to clear out stock. Regardless, $599 is still an outstanding price, especially for this configuration with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage (you can always update storage later on).
Here at Windows Central, we’re doing our best to round up the actual good deals to be had between now and the end of Prime Day next week. We know it can be hard to sift through all the rubbish deals, so we’ve compiled a collection of the best Prime Day deals we’ve spotted for you. Our collection will be constantly updated, so keep checking back!
