Amazon now offers the latest Microsoft Surface Laptop 5 13.5 inch i5/8GB/256GB for $699 shipped. This 22% discount typically retails for $900 and marks the first price drop we’ve seen for this model. Equipped with a 12th Gen Intel i5 processor and 8GB of system memory, the Surface Laptop 5 is a great combination of style and speed. The 13.5-inch touchscreen has a 3:2 aspect ratio that gives you more screen real estate for improved multitasking, which is helped by the processing power provided. You also get 256GB of SSD storage, so all your programs and files load quickly to further increase productivity. Surface Laptop 5 I/O includes a built-in USB-C and USB-A port, Surface Connect for charging, and a headphone jack. Check out our launch coverage to learn more.

For some users, the built-in I/O on the Surface Laptop 5 may be limiting. If so, you can use some of your savings here and buy the Microsoft Surface Dock 2 for $200. The Surface Connect connection gives you additional USB ports and Ethernet right away. The included 199W power adapter keeps your laptop charged while powering devices connected to the hub. You’ve got two front-facing USB-C ports with two more on the back right next to two USB-As. As mentioned, you get a Gigabit Ethernet connection with this hub, so you don’t have to rely on wireless internet at home or in the office.
