When Microsoft announced the Surface Pro 3, it said that the Core i5 version would be available on June 20th and the i3 and i7 variants would be shipping at the end of August. Well, if you pre-ordered either the i3 or i7 models, there is good news for you today as Microsoft is moving up the ship date.
Microsoft has revised its shipping date for the i3 and i7 models to August 1st, a full month ahead of schedule. For anyone who placed an order for these devices, your ship date will automatically be moved up to the new date, which should delight these consumers.
Microsoft is offering a diverse set of specs across its Pro 3 range, from an i3 with 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage for $799, to an i7 with 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage for $1949. It should be noted that both of these SKUs do not come with the Type Cover 3 for $129.99, and we highly recommend that you purchase this accessory too.
Of course, if you don't want to wait for the i3 and i7 models, the i5 model is now on sale as well. That device comes in two iterations, one that costs $999 and comes with 128 GB of storage and 4 GB of RAM and the other model costs $1299 and comes with 256 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM.
