That means you have to be extra careful when considering if you’ve found a good deal. Right now, Microsoft and Best Buy have discounts on the solid laptop, getting you a Surface Laptop 5 for $899.99.

A flagship Surface laptop
The Surface Laptop 5 is a solid laptop, especially for those that value the esthetic and design of the Surface family. It builds on years of Surface Laptops before it. Some would argue that the Surface Laptop 5 builds on its predecessors a little too much, which is a fair criticism given that the general design is the same as the original Surface Laptop from 2017. But with the iterative improvements over the years, you get an impressive laptop that’s the best Surface Laptop to date.
Great performance, an excellent trackpad and keyboard, and good battery life earned the PC points in our Surface Laptop 5 review. The laptop’s tall, 3:2 display feels spacious without making the laptop gigantic. That aspect ratio is also perfect for multitasking and working on documents.
As you’d likely expect from a Surface device, the Surface Laptop 5 supports both touch and inking with a Surface Pen, which is sold separately.
Microsoft has a variety of sales on Surface Laptop 5 devices. If you max out the specs of a 15-inch model, you can save up to $650. But the 13-inch Surface Laptop 5 that’s on sale for $400 off is a better value. That version has a 12th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage.
