Microsoft's latest 15-inch Surface Laptop 3 can now be bought with a huge discount. Here are some reasons why consumers shouldn't miss out on this deal.

Best Buy is selling the Surface Laptop 3 15 for only $1,199 (a $300 discount). Those who might wonder why the device is being sold for such a low price considering that it was released very recently should stop wondering and instead go to the retailer's online store to check it out – and maybe purchase it for themselves.

Techradar noted that the Surface Laptop 3 has a great design and long battery life. These details, along with the huge discount, makes it a tempting offer. Here'sa quick look at what the Surface Laptop 3 15 has to offer:

Improved speed and performance

The Surface Laptop 3 15 features an AMD Ryzen 5 Microsoft Surface Edition processor that allows it to perform at least twice as fast as the Surface Laptop 2. Those who owned the older device will know that this is a big speed bump.

Sleek and light body

The Surface Laptop 3 15 has a body wide enough for a 15-inch touchscreen display, but is thin and light enough to be portable. Its weight starts at 3.4 lbs, making it easy to carry anywhere.

Long battery life and Fast Charging

Microsoft's latest boasts of up to 11.5 hours of battery life depending on use. This means users won't have to worry about looking for places to plug their chargers when working outside. What's more, the Surface Laptop 3 15 has Fast Charging features that allow it to go from zero to 80% in just an hour.

Typing comforts

The Surface Laptop 3 15 has a trackpad that's 20% wider compared to its predecessors. The new glass trackpad is also “very comfortable” to use, PCMag noted. The keyboard also offers more travel and is quieter than the keyboard on the Surface Laptop 2, Techradar noted.

A great screen

The device features a 15-inch touchscreen display with 3:2 aspect ratio and 2,496 x 1,664 resolution. This display is perfect for reading and writing, and offers touchscreen conveniences (like tapping on the screen instead of dragging the pointer using the trackpad).

The Surface Laptop 3 15 isn't the best laptop choice for power users and for those who need a computer that can do a lot of things. It is, however, recommended for those who simply want a laptop with a larger screen.
