The price of the Surface Laptop 3 at Amazon goes down again. Most recently, Microsoft’s new premium notebook was cheaper in February, but has now been reduced again. GIGA reveals who is worth buying.
Update from May 20, 2020: The price of the Surface Laptop 3 has fallen again. Amazon is once again offering Microsoft’s new laptop at a reduced price – just € 879.00 is currently being called for the platinum version with 128 GB of internal memory. Although this is not a new historical best price, it is still a very good offer.
If you want to secure one of the notebooks, you should be quick. The past has shown that Amazon often only offers the Surface Laptop 3 for a limited time. So if you have been thinking about getting the model for a long time, you should rather strike now. The view can be worthwhile, especially for students. Members of the “Amazon Prime Student” program receive a further 60 euros discount at the cash register, which reduces the price to a sensational 819 euros.

This is a real top price for the brand new notebook. At the start, the laptop cost a whopping 1,150 euros. In a direct comparison, you save a whole 200 euros.

Surface laptop 3: who is it worth buying?
Current Intel processor with Ice Lake architecture, 8 GB RAM, 128 GB PCIe SSD and an extremely high-resolution display with touch support – all in one device, which weighs just 1.25 kilograms. Microsoft knows exactly what to look for in a business notebook in the premium segment.
Although the capacity of the built-in SSD is quite small, the disk can be replaced with a larger model at any time. But be careful: you will lose your guarantee. The best thing to do is to approach the exchange only after it has expired.
Another shortcoming is the somewhat scarce RAM, which cannot be retrofitted. Fortunately, 8 GB are enough for office work. The Surface Laptop offers a colorful and high-resolution display, as well as one the best keyboards for lightweight Windows laptops. The battery life should also be quite ample. Microsoft itself specifies around 11.5 hours – that should be enough even for a longer working day. If you need even more USB ports, you should get a suitable adapter.
If you are now looking for a particularly high-quality, compact and lightweight notebook with a long battery life for university or for the office, you can safely consider the current offer for the Surface Laptop 3. We recommend everyone else to take a look at our laptop purchase advice.
