Microsoft offered all sorts of deals in the UK over the festive season, but now that the holidays are well and truly over, many of its devices have returned to their full prices again, including the Surface Book. But if you were planning to buy a Surface Book, you can currently get certain models for a lot less than you'd pay at the Microsoft Store.
High street retailer Argos is now offering £120 off the Surface Book with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage; usually priced at £1,599, it's now available for £1,479. If you'd prefer a Core i7 processor with the same RAM and storage, you can get £150 off that model, reducing its price from £1,799 to £1,649.
It's not clear how long those discounts will remain available, so if you're thinking of buying one at those prices, it's probably best not to wait too long.
But if you're thinking of purchasing one of the higher-end Surface Books, which aren't included in Argos' promotional discount, you might want to hold off before you buy. Microsoft announced last month that its new Surface Book i7 with Performance Base - which features upgraded graphics performance, and improved battery life - will launch in the UK and seven other markets this quarter.
