Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 2 is available from £880 on Amazon

Grab one of our favourite ultraportable laptops for a bargain price

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 2 is one of our current favourite ultraportable machines. And thanks to Black Friday deals season in full swing, you can now get it for £880 on Amazon.

That deal only applies to the Platinum model with the Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage space. It’s pretty much an entry-level specification for the Surface Laptop 2, but the processor is a quad-core chip and offers plenty of performance for every-day computing tasks and even a little light gaming providing you’re not trying to run very demanding 3D games.

If you’re willing to spend £19 more, you can get the same specification in the rather fetching Burgandy finish. Not only is this colour attractive, but it’s also rather different to a lot of colour schemes other ultraportable laptops use, so if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd, this is the laptop to get.

There’s more of a saving to be had on the Burgandy model as that was previously priced at £1,249 on Amazon, meaning you save some £350 in this Black Friday deal, whereas the Platinum model only offers a saving of £86.99 from its original price of £996.99.

Whatever model you go for, you’re in for a tech treat as the Surface Laptop 2 is a thoroughly excellent machine. It has a vibrant and bright display, slick trackpad, and pleasingly minimal design. But its best feature is the excellent keyboard, which offers a wonderful tactile typing experience, with a keyboard deck clad in soft-touch Alcantara; a somewhat unique design flair from Microsoft.

You could pay a lot more to get an ultraportable with a more powerful processor and even a graphics card. But for £880, Amazon’s deal on the Surface Laptop 2 is one that can’t be ignored for people in the market for a new thin and light laptop.
