Microsoft’s latest hardware may be just a few months old, but select models of the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 are already on steep discount—30 percent off—for the combined Valentine’s Day / President’s Day holiday.
eBay is selling Core i5 models of the Surface Pro 7 and the Surface Laptop 3 for Business for about $300 off apiece. There’s also a similar discount for the 13-inch MacBook Air, and a refurbished Microsoft Xbox One X game console for $100 off. The deals supposedly run through Monday, February 17, though the eBay listings also characterize them as being in limited quantities.
It’s worth reiterating that the Surface Laptop 3 model that eBay is selling is the Surface Laptop 3 for Business, with an Intel 10th-gen Ice Lake chip inside. While we liked the AMD Ryzen-based models of the Surface Laptop 3 as well, the Ice Lake version outclassed its near-twin in both performance and battery life.
Both of the Surface Pro 7 deals eBay is selling start with the same model, sporting Intel's Ice Lake CPU. One includes an Office 365 subscription, the other doesn’t. Though there are scant few Windows tablets in the market, the Surface Pro 7 is definitely the best of the lot—and eBay’s throwing in a Type Cover as well.
There’s also an HP Omen 15 gaming laptop on sale for 46 percent off—that’s a big number, even though it uses a slightly aging 9th-gen Core CPU and GTX 1650 GPU.
