The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 is already priced reasonably, but there are often discounts on the versatile tablet that make it even better value for money. We've rounded up today's best Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 deals here.

The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 is an affordable Windows 10 tablet that comes with the option of adding on a keyboard or stylus, and offers great battery life and an easy-to-use interface. While the base spec can be a little slow for certain purposes, and often doesn't come with a Touch Cover or stylus included, it's a great way of enjoying Windows in a highly portable fashion. It's thin and light enough to hold with one hand, while still providing you with a working day's worth of battery life. In particular, it's a good option if you're looking for a great student laptop

The Surface Go 2 devices start at $399/£399/AU$547, with that price steadily increasing depending on what spec you're tempted by. The highest spec for the tablet can reach prices nearing the iPad Pro, with $899 models an option. Alternatively, the basic spec is more on a par with Chromebooks, even though it's technically a tablet unless you add on the Type Cover. 

For many people, paying somewhere in the middle is the best bet for reasonable performance and a touch more storage space than the cheapest model. There's also the LTE model, which means you don't have to rely on Wi-Fi hotspots - providing you have a SIM card with cellular data at the ready. That model starts at $729.99/£719/AU$1,199.
