Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is perhaps the best 2-in-1 laptop that the famous Redmond-based company has to offer. The gadget offers “the power of a laptop with the flexibility of a tablet,” as Microsoft claims. And who are we to contradict them?

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 features an ultra-portable design, it sports an all-day battery, and it features high-speed connections with 2 Thunderbolt 4 ports. In other words, we’re truly speaking about an outstanding laptop, and the best news is that it has now received a major discount!

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is discounted by 39%

Woot, an online retailer owned by Amazon, now offers the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 with 8GB of RAM and the Intel Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake quad-core processor to anyone who’s willing to pay only $609. That’s a huge discount from the laptop’s usual price, and as a bonus, the retailer will ship the product to your location for free if you choose to buy it.

The laptop included in the discount also features an SSD of 128GB. Surely that’s not much for many gamers out there, but hey, nobody said that Surface Pro 8 is a laptop dedicated to gaming! Surely you can run some not-too-demanding games on the laptop from time to time, especially if you’re into retro titles. But playing the latest Call of Duty or FIFA on the Surface Pro 8 would definitely be a bad idea.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that the Microsoft Surface 8 Pro still features a refresh rate of 120Hz. That’s an impressive specification for a non-gaming laptop. Surface 8 Pro can be used especially for browsing, working, and running multimedia content. It’s more like a laptop for working in your office rather than one that you should use for gaming.

The new exciting offer was spotted by Notebookcheck, and surely anyone who has been dreaming of grabbing the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is tempted to benefit.
