Hi, I’ve been looking around for a laptop for college and I’ve settled on either the Surface Laptop or Surface Laptop 2. Obviously, the newer one has better specs. However, I’m wondering if it’s worth the money. I’m looking to buy the lowest cheapest configuration of each laptop and use it for school work, video/movie watching, and other general purposes, not gaming though. So, I don’t think I need any extra horsepower for that type of use. I couldn’t find that many upgrades worth the extra money for the Surface Laptop 2. With the student discount on Microsoft’s store, each laptop comes out to the same price: $900, before $75 sales tax. I found the Surface Laptop on Amazon with an i5 at 3.1, 128 GB SSD, and 4 GB of ram for $719 after tax. That sounds like a good deal since the same on Microsoft’s store is almost $300 more. I also found a Surface Laptop on Amazon for $600 with an i3 at 1.0 and everything else the same. I would’ve jumped at that but I wasn’t sure about a 1 GHz processor. I’ve only ever built PCs for gaming so I don’t know if this is enough for what I described above. If it is I would absolutely buy that. However, if the Surface 2 is really worth the money, I would be willing to spend the money. (The cheapest place I saw the Surface 2 was on Microsoft's store for @974 after tax.) Sorry for the long post. Any advice is appreciated.
