They also offer a great deal of gaming support, and with a price tag of just £499 for the base model, you can find the one for you.
They are also the most affordable laptop you can buy in the UK, offering you the best performance for the money.
The base model is also great value for money, and offers a wide range of ports and features.
However, there are a few caveats to consider when it came to the Surface 3’s performance.
The laptop is still the best overall gaming laptop you’ll ever buy, but it lacks the gaming prowess of the Surface Book 2, which is why we have to say the Surface 4 is the better option when you are trying to build your gaming rig.
The Surface Pro 5 is the closest thing Microsoft has to a gaming laptop, and comes with some key advantages over the Surface Pros.
It has a slightly faster CPU, but has a significantly lower price tag.
Its ports are more advanced, with HDMI and USB 3.0 being the only USB 3 ports included.
And, as mentioned earlier, it comes with an HDMI out port for a more powerful gaming experience.
However we do have to acknowledge that the Surface 5’s performance is slightly lower, and is not as powerful as the Surface 2, with the CPU clocking in at 2.5GHz and the GPU clocking at 1.9GHz.
However with its price tag and relatively low specifications, you will definitely find this to be a good option if you’re looking for the best gaming laptop for your money.
Read the full review: Microsoft Windows 8 review: The new Surface Pros comparison article The Surface Book is the only new Windows 8 laptop in this comparison, and although it is only available in a limited quantity, it is still a great choice.
This laptop is packed with features, and has a massive price tag to boot.
It comes with a Core i5 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics card, so you can build an awesome gaming machine.
However it lacks some key gaming features such as dedicated GPUs, and also a USB Type-C port, which means you’ll need to buy a separate keyboard and mouse if you want to connect to the internet.
You can also only buy one USB Type C adapter per computer, which will limit your options to the Xbox One S and PlayStation 4 Pro.
So if you don’t want to spend too much money, then the Surface Books are definitely worth considering.
