On black friday, Microsfot planning to drop $400 of this laptop. The final price will be $649+ tax. Given the specs, is it worth it?

I bought this last Boxing day for the same price, but mine came with an active stylus, not that an active stylus is that useful.

The 8th gen i5 CPU in this laptop is a beast in terms of processing power, and is very power efficient too. There is a free drive bay for a 2.5" SSD/HDD which is quite rare nowadays. Screen is about par for a $650 laptop. Battery life is 7-8 hours. The SSD that comes with it is a NVME SSD and is very fast. Keyboard and trackpad is a bit meh, but about par for a $650 laptop.

The laptop seems well designed and well built for a $650, I have not run into cooling or stability issues.

The only big downside is that it does not have USB type C charging, aside from that; it is a good laptop for the money.
