With so many people working from home these days, there’s a good chance you had to dig up some crummy old keyboard that barely lasts for a month on a charge.

Well, we have some good news: It’s time for the madness to end.
Amazon slashed up to $450 off the Microsoft Surface Pro X, today only
Monday, 25 May 2020, 16:42:17
The Microsoft Surface Pro X is the company’s latest and greatest Windows 10 device, and it’s down to its lowest price ever on Amazon for Memorial Day 2020. The entry-level Surface Pro X with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD typically sells for $1,000, but on Monday it’s on sale for only $749.99. Double the amount of SSD storage and you’ll save even more — the 256GB Surface Pro X that typically sells for $1,300 is only $849.99 while supplies last. For so many years, Windows laptops were big clunky devices that people bought because they needed one, not because they actually wanted one. They all pretty much looked the same, with boxy black or dark gray cases. If you needed a new laptop, all you had to worry about was picking a screen size and a processor/RAM/storage combo that met your needs. They all looked the same and ran the same software, so why bother digging any deeper? Now, that has totally changed. Most people agree that the introduction of the MacBook Air in 2008 was the catalyst because it made Windows laptop vendors realize that a notebook computer could be more than just a thick black rectangle. “Ultrabooks” began flooding the market and now, in 2020, we have more variety than ever before.
