DEAL: Get £250 off the original Microsoft Surface Book

Earlier this week Microsoft surprised everyone by releasing the Surface Book 2 to coincide with the release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Now, as is custom, the company is heavily discounting the original Surface Book model with a saving of £250 in the offing for UK residents.

The entry level Surface Book is now £1,199, down from hefty original asking price of £1,449. The deal will be available while stocks last, with the higher-end version already sold out.

For the slightly-more-reasonable outlay you’ll get a 13.5-inch PixelSense Display touchscreen, boasting a resolution of 3000 x 2000. The screen can be detached at the unique hinge so it can be used as a tablet.

It’s got 6th generation (Skylake) Intel Core i5 processors with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.

You’ll get Windows 10 Pro as well as a Surface Pen for all of that touchscreen goodness. The laptop/tablet hybrid promises up to 12-hours of battery life and it weighs in at 3.34lbs.

There are two full-size USB 3.0 ports, a headphone jack, a full-size SD card reader and a mini display port.

It also has 5/8-megapixel cameras, dual microphones and front-facing speakers with Dolby Audio Premium.

Great performance, solid build

In our review, we awarded the original Surface Book an 8/10 score, praising its great performance, the sharp and vibrant screen and the solid build quality.

The major drawback was the expense, but that’s less of an issue now isn’t it?
