Last month, we reported that a new model of the Surface Pro was available. It comes with a Core i5, 8GB RAM, and 128GB of storage, for the same price of the model with 4GB RAM, which was $999. Sure enough, the 4GB model disappeared soon after that.
Now, Microsoft is doing the exact same thing with the Surface Laptop. You can get one with a Core i5, 8GB RAM, and a 128GB SSD for $999, the exact same price as the 4GB variant. Unsurprisingly, the 4GB model is out of stock, so don't be surprised if it disappears.
Also like its predecessor, this new model is only in Platinum. If you want Burgundy, Cobalt Blue, or Graphite Gold, you'll still have to bump up the specs to a 256GB SSD, which starts at $1,299.
Sadly, the device still comes with a seventh-generation Intel Core processor, which is dual-core. Most modern premium PCs are now coming with the quad-core eighth-gen chips, and Surface Laptop and Pro are falling behind in that area.
