Deal | Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 on sale at Micro Center for $700 USD but with a catch
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.
