The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is seeing some big discounts today at Best Buy, Amazon, and the Microsoft Store. Prices start at $800 for the base model with 8GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, and Intel’s quad-core 10th Gen Core i5-1035G7 processor with Iris Plus graphics (usually $1,000). This model is available in platinum with soft Alcantara coating the palm rest at Best Buy, Amazon, and the Microsoft Store.

That’s a good deal if you’re looking for the most affordable model. But if you’re a power user who wants more processing power, and double the amount of RAM and storage, you should check out the upgraded model that now costs $1,250 (usually $1,600). In addition to the memory and storage upgrade, its processor gets a bump in speed up to the Intel Core i7-1065G7 with Iris Plus graphics. Amazon has this model in the sandstone colorway with an all-metal palm rest, and at the time of publishing, the Microsoft Store has it in sandstone with metal, black with metal, or cobalt blue with Alcantara.

The Surface Laptop 3 has a fantastic keyboard and trackpad, and its high-resolution 3:2 aspect ratio touchscreen is able to fit more content on-screen. It’s the first model to feature a USB-C port, which you can use to charge the laptop, connect an external display, or use any USB-C accessory.

Google’s Nest Hub Max recently gained the ability to play Netflix, which is something that other smart displays can’t currently do. So if you want to stock up for this reason or perhaps because you can also join Duo or Meet video calls, thanks to its built-in camera, Best Buy is offering $100 off a two-pack of Nest Hub Max displays. Normally, two cost $460, but it’s $360 right now. You can mix and match colors before you check out right here.
