Microsoft makes and sells a ton of computers. In fact, they sold $1.3 billion worth of Microsoft Surface laptops in the third quarter of 2019 alone. Of course with that many computers being sold, it stands to reason that plenty of those units will also get returned, often through no fault of their own.
That’s why savvy tech shoppers are all over factory refurbished models from giant makers like Microsoft. The company’s Certified Refurbished computers are all completely tested and guaranteed to look and work just like they came out of the box. And in addition to being thoroughly checked, cleaned and slapped with a minimum 90-day warranty, they also come with savings of hundreds of dollars off their still boxed cousins.
Case in point, Microsoft is currently selling off fully recertified Microsoft Surface 2 laptops that retail for $2,499.99 for a whopping $1,300 off, which makes them just $1,199.99.
In case you’re worried these laptops are anything less than prime, don’t. This Surface 2 runs a lightning-quick 8th gen Intel Core i5 processor, which is more than enough horsepower to keep multiple open apps happy all at the same time. This model, which weighing in at a positively feather-light 2.75 pounds, was created specifically for those who generally have several tasks going on at once, some performance is definitely no issue.
A look at the specs also shows features on par with similar models, including 8GB of RAM, a 256GB hard drive and a brilliant 13.5-inch PixelSense Display with interactive touchscreen capabilities. The razor-sharp HD resolution is just the eye for detail intense users need. And since hardcore users are often so busy working that they don’t think about stuff like batteries, the 15-hour battery life on the Surface 2 can come in handy often.
It’s a lot of computer, for sure. And when you stack on the added $1,300 savings, it’s a prime example of why Microsoft certified refurbished models are such a steal.
