All Surface Book Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2018
If you open it it's returnable providing it's undamaged (no scratches) If you've switched it on, it's not returnable if bought in store, as it's used. If you bought it online, you're entitled to inspect, so providing you factory reset it (being undamaged still applies) you can return it.
As you say, it states "unused and undamaged", not unopened.
It says unused. Does that mean they'll reject it if it's opened?
What's john Lewis's return policy like. Can I return this if I don't like it after opening? (Bought it yesterday). Btw it's back up to £2500 or so.
eGPU I would recomend Gigabyte AORUS GTX 1070 Gaming Box Portable Graphics Card. It cost under 600 including a GTX 1070 (now £ 569.98 at ebuyer). For laptops Lenovo offer decen quality-price. Lenovo has offers now for the Lenovo Yoga 720 that has thunderbolt 3, there is a model with a i7 for £850 for example. Still lower price than Surface and you get much better spects (including a full size GTX1070 vs a mobile capped 1050).
Looks like they are out of stock on all 15inch variants
Which eGPU dock and specific machine would you recommend?
How much extra weight does it add? Tempted but would defeat whole point of getting surface if it adds weight ending up similar to a laptop
Thanks for the feedback, I think I'll give it a miss and use my extended cover for any damage.
I paid £50 for it. I must say that it good and not excellent as fitment is poor. Also, when you detach and use as a tablet and wishes to put it back to the base, you have to push the casing back to get it right. Overall, good product and excellent price.
Got one to protect it from my kids - thanks for posting
NB UAG Surface Pro 4 case is also discounted
LOL - nicely played.
I wasn't referring to you. Though I can be a bit of an ass.
Troll? Moi? Call me Shrek baby. You can be donkey!
I did lol, just noted I also got £14 topcashback - boom! result.
Did anyone actually get it at this price? I cant believe it was genuine and not a missprice.
They are pricey but the Surface Book and Surface Laptop look so good! is a DELL XPS 13 or HP Envy better for around £1,000? Do not need the tablet function of this but the pen seems like a nice idea.
I wonder if I should swap my sp4 and laptop for a surface book. can any tech savy guy tell me the difference between the one listed on this deal and this i7 on Argos ebay one says 6660 vs 6600 CPU ARGOS EBAY
Isn't there a new Surface Book out now? So this is the old model....This deal is too expensive anyway and far too expensive for the old model
I just want the base, so I can upgrade from my current Surface Book's 940m GPU. And I'd pay £200 for it
Ditto. Offered me refurbished sp4 because my brand new one has a white spot on the display. Take it or leave it is their attitude rather than replace it with a new device.
Me too. Lol
Caught a flame deer here
This is laptop for creatives like the mac book pro. Its not a gaming laptop. Still Microsoft should just offer a good deal on it instead of a bundle discount.
I would say that if you are prepared to pay this amount for the above that you don't actually need it; in that you are already in your own mixed reality..... (cheeky) I do see a big future for mixed reality headsets though...
The amazon states its a 7th Generation m3.. it's not an i7. I wish it is at that price.
Read the Amazon one...it's an i7
Anyone able to get this applied to reserve and collect rather than C&C? Thanks
The amazon one does have a typecover Box Contains1 x Surface Pro Tablet Surface Pro Type Cover (Black) UK Power Adaptor
Because the amazon one is m3 not i7 and does not have a typecover.great deal
If youre not French dont buy.
They're not all bad. My Surface Book has worked flawlessly in the 18 months or so that I've had it
Surface products also have a lot of reliability issues, so you are taking a risk buying from another country.....

thanks guys I think you just saved me some money!
Perhaps I got lucky, but I've had no problems whatsoever with my Surface Book 1 bought around the initial launch period, over 18 months ago. Brilliantly versatile machine and playing Civilization 6 on my couch using touch controls, is my favourite thing. Definitely worth a look if you can justify the outlay
Microsoft's QA is poor, build quality is far worse than Dell, wouldn't buy.
Surely you paid for such an expensive purchase with a credit card? This would have given you section 75 protection and I think there can be no doubt that you would be able to successfully argue that such a "premium" product should be expected to last longer than 13 months!
Sorry, the Surface is junk, not ANY good (from experience, see threads passim...).
Cheaper at Amazon - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B06XPKHWXH/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1511044287&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=microsoft+surface+book
I don't recommend, unless you buy from JL. Microsofts 1 year warranty is not long enough...
No Surface Book has an m3 processor. These were plagued with issues, yes. I had two and returned both. I guess I was unlucky but the issues I faced were quite well documented. For me it was chassis bend and the clipboard not unclipping among others. Anyway this deal is out of stock and the older Book (1st gen), personally I wouldn't recommend them unless the form factor is really important as it's just an overpriced ultrabook with middling specs otherwise.
Oos, remember to use the report expired button, folks.
Bought the same laptop back in January for this price. OK, they put it back up shortly afterwards, but that was 10 months ago ! Yes, it's a good laptop and i haven't had any problems, but I would have thought these would either have run out of stock or be cheaper still. NB. this is NOT the Surface 2, its the original Surface Pro. Also moneychop doesn't know what he/she is talking about, there never has been a M3 Surface Book (only available in the Surface Pro) - this one advertised is the base spec for the Surface Book.
Never had an issue on mine but I do have the top range i7. I believe the issues are with the ones on the lower end that have the m3 processors.
Thanks will take a look These are the others i was looking at: Acer Aspire Switch 12S Dell Latitude 12 7000 2-in-1 Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 370 HP Spectre x360 13 Lenovo Yoga 720 13 Dell XPS 12 9250
Dell XPS 13 (latest model with 8th Gen Proc)?
good deal but really need something with Thunderbolt 3, any suggestions?
True, but it could help someone out though.
Almost no stock anywhere though.
Seen the same problems with the Surface Pro 3 and 4s but these problems have improved with Win10/firmware updates. Had to return half a dozen of our 25+ Surface Pros at my work place due to hardware faults but generally they've been OK. The 3 year warranty is a definite must.

I can't see how a tablet with a detachable keyboard and a very high price is better than a laptop with the same or better spec and a lower price?
I love the Surface range (I have the 1st gen and 3rd gen) but when is it ever acceptable to spend a grand on something with only 128GB Hard disk in 2017??
I remember that it really worked ;P
too much info to explain - but the £50 Samsung tablet trade-in offer helped!
If you didn't want a tablet the Surface Laptop should be coming in at a cheaper price point....
Dell Xps 13 has not UHD and no external graphics card whereas with the i7, you can get external graphics card.
He was the one person who brought at extended warranty in 2016 from PC world?
Good luck with that!
Has anybody got any discount code for this website?
Comes with 3 months warranty only. Good price though.
I'd rather pick up a 2nd hand one for £750ish. Definitely wait for the Surface event if you're in the market. Hopefully I can grab one for even cheaper once the new ones hit.
The models with the nVidia Graphics in the keyboard are also available (bit more money but still looking to me like great value)
JL and Microsoft Store both have high price and no stock
cold cos JL will price match with 3 year guarantee https://www.johnlewis.com/microsoft-surface-book-intel-core-i7-8gb-ram-256gb-13-5-pixelsense-touch-screen-silver/p2525576#tabinfo-spcl-offr
Amazing price. I don't think people realise how great this product is. They are just voting cold because of high price (i think). I have been using mine for 3 months now and i can not go back to another windows machine
Keep an eye on eBay, they don't seem to resell very well. The warranty also transfers to your Microsoft account as it is tied to the serial number of the book. Not sure why this is cold either, it's more on Amazon etc for this model.
Amazing price for a surface book how did u do that?
Why is it expired? The offer is still running with stock!
Sorry, but as 3 time owner of a Surface Book I can tell you that it is far from fantastic in use as an actual computer.
further 8% off with Topcashback on i7 surfacebook models
I think its reasonable to ask, hope you get the replacement
The error was something like unable to locate boot drive. So I went to install Windows from fresh but it couldn't see the ssd at all. This happened while just browsing the web, then it froze and ended in a boot loop. Replacement took 3 weeks. That works fine but it has marks on the casing near the charging port and some backlight bleed that my original unit did not have. Not happy as I bought the laptop and at the end of January 2017. I should have been given a brand new replacement if my original unit could not have been repaired. Do you think I'm being unreasonable ?
If you had actually bothered to take the time to click on the two links in my post then you would have seen that I have owned 3 of them over 9 months...
What was wrong with your unit? Good luck with getting a new replacement
I own one, bought it from John lewis. It went wrong after 6 weeks, JL sent it to Microsoft for repairs and they sent me a refurb In the old box I sent it in so serial numbers don't match with box. Now in talks with John Lewis to give me a brand new unit.
The Book comes with an unusual PSU port that facilitates both connectivity to the GPU/Battery equipped keyboard as well as supporting multiple ports on the associated Surface Dock. I have to say that I am still finding USB-C a bit of a pain on my (now aging) 950xl - the sentiment expressed in this article rings true for me and I suspect we will see Thunderbolt in the next iteration. Https://www.thurrott.com/mobile/microsoft-surface/6802/no-usb-c-on-surface-pro-4-and-surface-book-is-a-real-problem
Very interesting device, I'm keeping my eye on it as it matures. At the price I would want Thunderbolt 3 though, so hopefully that comes around in the next refresh.
I wouldn't bother with this, it's quite rubbish if you reckon you'll try to use it as your daily driver. I was on my third one before I gave in to it's "nuances" and returned it for a refund from John Lewis. There was another deal similar to this the other day, I posted my reasons over there. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/microsoft-surface-book-1169-10-currys-today-only-2641890?p=30332358 tjc2005 meherenow A horrible machine. I had 3 in quick succession, persevered with the third for 9 months in the vain hope Microsoft would release one of their many firmware updates that actually addressed the myriad of problems... Got a full refund from good old John Lewis in the end. What was actually wrong with it then? Well I "tried" to use mine as a replacement main computer (as trumpeted by MS). Constantly dropping USB was the main one - I had the Surface Dock (which thankfully I got for free as that is) another overpriced POS. You could be writing stuff to an external drive and it would randomly disconnect it. Perfectly working pieces of equipment (self powered not bus powered as the USB bus is woefully underpowered on the Book) would be fine on ANY other machine (and working in I.T. I have access to a LOT of other machines). A mountain of other stuff too - the thing gets real close to TJ Max of 100c when pushing it (or some would say doing normal things like encoding video etc etc) so much so that it was unbearable to hold the clipboard portion it was so hot. Scaling issues also drove me crazy - had it connected to a 1440p monitor, no problem with any other device. Just check Google - MS will say they have fixed a lot of problems - I can assure you they haven't, the machine is just not fit for purpose. Luckily I got mine from John Lewis - can't imagine Currys would be so entertaining when people realise it's not all its cracked up to be 9 months down the line...
On the other hand if I was in the market I might be tempted by this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Microsoft-Surface-Pro-4-512GB-Intel-i7-16GB-RAM-Win-10-Pro-Warranty-Dec-2017/262897363243 £1150 - currently £1899 new
Incidentally my guess is that the lower spec Surface Books will be replaced by a Surface Book SKU that doesn't have the tablet/laptop capability - it will be simply a top quality touch screen laptop but with improved graphics grunt enabling mixed reality or more standard Photoshop type use.
