You'll have to drive to the nearest store to pick up the item if you want the latest Microsoft laptop brand new for as cheap as possible.

A few weeks ago, Microsoft had a sale of its entry-level 13.5-inch Surface Laptop 3 configuration equipped with the Core i5-1035G7 CPU, 8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 128 GB SSD for $800 USD. The deal would apply only to the gray Alcantara color meaning that you'll still have to pay regular price for the superior metal version. Now, brick-and-mortar retailers are beginning to run similar sales.

Micro Center is currently offering the Alcantara 13.5-inch Surface Laptop 3 with the same specifications mentioned above for $700 to be the lowest price yet for Microsoft's latest 13.5-inch notebook. The problem, however, is that buyers must pick up their purchases at the nearest Micro Center as the retailer will not ship the item. With only about 25 stores across the U.S., Micro Center is definitely not as ubiquitous as Walmart, Target, or Best Buy. You'll have to be lucky enough to live within a reasonable distance from a store to take advantage of the deal.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
