If you've been following our deals coverage, you'll know that we love a good discount on a Microsoft Surface device. Quite often when Microsoft has its sales, Amazon is quick to follow with even more aggressive discounts – though not this time.

Microsoft has just dropped £200 off the Surface Laptop 2 with 8GB RAM, 128GB storage and a core i5 processor, which has an RRP £979. The Surface Laptop 2 was only launched in 2018 as an upgrade to the Surface Laptop (see our comparison).

The Laptop 2 scored an incredible 4.5 stars out of 5 in our review and our editors also gave it a Tech Advisor Recommended badge. It also features in our round up of the best laptops.

Amazon's discount on the same model is not bad, but is still £50 less competitive than Microsoft's with £150 off instead of £200. Amazon does outdo Microsoft if you go for the 256GB model instead. There, Amazon offers £206 off, while Microsoft offers £200 off.
