For this price, use code BTS50 - Extended and now ends at midnight Sunday

If you've been waiting for a drop on the 1st gen models, this is the best I can find by a fair margin and the lowest I have seen them priced up at. Really well built machines with a decent touchpad (I'm fussy, ha)

Delivery is free too

Bagged my 2 month old Surface Laptop 2, 256GB in black with extended John Lewis accidental damage coverage for £735 on eBay over the FVF weekend. Got an earlier SL2 256GB in Burgundy from CeX, A grade, for £640. There are deals to be had if you know where to look. £800 for a dual core is pretty poor IMO.

Currently have 20gb+ spare, full access to 1tb cloud storage, and I have a nas with all movies on. When I need to put movies on the laptop, I drop them on a 128gb usb. The 8th gen processor is a god sent for hvec encoding, good luck trying that on a 7th gen. Your right though that the common person who doesn’t understand cloud/network storage would prefer the extra hard drive space.


Actually I've been involved in web development and computer repairs as my main sources of income for decades and I perfectly understand cloud computing and usb sticks. I just choose not to waste my time constantly transferring files and software back and forth from my machine every time I have to leave town for a few days. What a waste of time. I have my go-to files and software packages on my machine. So if I get a call I pick it up and go.. instead of spending the next hour faffing around uploading x y and z to the cloud, a b and c to the usb drive, and installing the software packages that didn't fit on the drive.

I'm just providing potential buyers info to make a choice for themselves. Many professional reviewers agree 128 machine is not recommended for most people.. read any decent review by a reputable professional.

If you are happy faffing with usb sticks trying to work around the well documented limitations your hamstrung machine then that's a lifestyle choice you're welcome to.

Other people may not see that as effective use of time and go for 256GB minimum. Those are the people I wrote the previous comment for.

Good point but that 128GB model you suggest will be useless for a lot of people after their software and a few pics are on there. Plus don't forget that includes the full windows installation so probably under 100GB you're talking about.

I wouldn't recommend that to anyone other than very light users who will never want install decent software or store a few movies / music / photos.

SD cards are limited and I wouldn't recommend them for software.

100GB 'actual free space' (less if including temp files and increased system page file use of drive due to 8GB RAM) is fine for a web browser machine of course as it's severely limited to very light software usage long term.. and don't even think of putting quality movies or lossless audio on there.

256GB will give well over 100 percent more leeway on the often 'less than' 100GB utilisable drive space on the 128 model. That's why the 128 is so much cheaper.. it's hamstrung for moderate use eg: adding software or processing media or storing media etc.

Edit:

And don't forget, you can't upgrade the hard drive.

Given that it doesn't take much imagination to see the 256 model with the earlier processor (still super quick) will be far more useful in real terms than the newer 128 to most people imo.. given common use cases especially given the bang for buck of this deal.

Stand out point being:

Anyone doing the math should compare 256 with 256 as they have very different potential and appeal to different audiences.

Few milliseconds on page load time will not be nearly worth the above hamstrung nature of only having 100GB non system drive.. at least for many people.

Very light users will love the relative value of the 128 to the 256 though.. if you will never want to install decent software packages and store music and video (or even many hq pics).. although perhaps 700 or 800 pounds is a lot for what would end up a Facebook and browsing machine (due to the space and lack of software packages issue) given the competition.

128 Vs 256.. apples and oranges

Never said you don’t understand cloud computing. Only transferring I do ever is movies to USB, and that’s once in a blue moon.

I’m just providing potential buyers the details that 128gb doesn’t need to be the limitation that tech hungry reviewers think it is and cloud computing and networked storage is a great option for buying a faster, newer machine than this one - esp if you can get it at the same price or lower. Don’t forget, lots of people have laptops and never leave the house with them!

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and we’ve just provided extra info to help them make an informed decision. I wouldn’t buy this laptop for the reasons stated, and you wouldn’t buy mine. Your choice doesn’t bother me and I’m sure my choice doesn’t bother you. Said my piece, not going round in circles anymore over it

Just to be clear then, you don't think 128gb is a good idea

Some decent points - the most useful being that you can't upgrade the SSD which is unfortunate but way OTT re 128 Vs 256 imo. 128gb plenty for many use cases - obviously not yours though but the thread has good balance
Always fancied a surface book...may get one soon esp if they come down more
Voted hot, I think this is a good deal and getting it on interest free finance makes it even better.
Is this the surface book?
Bagged my 2 month old Surface Laptop 2, 256GB in black with extended John Lewis accidental damage coverage for £735 on eBay over the FVF weekend. Got an earlier SL2 256GB in Burgundy from CeX, A grade, for £640. There are deals to be had if you know where to look. £800 for a dual core is pretty poor IMO.

The shipping options seem only to be ‘free’ or ‘express’, has anyone used them and if so do you know if this is tracked/signature required? I wouldn’t be happy if it never arrived and there was no recourse.
