Microsoft held its big bang Surface event in New York today where it announced a whole host of products, including ones that are not due till next year. Of the products announced, at least three of them can be preordered starting today – Surface Pro 7, Surface Laptop 3, and Surface Pro X, with deliveries for the Pro 7 and Laptop 3 starting 22nd October, and that of the Pro X starting 5th November.
Here’s where you can pre-order them:
Surface Pro 7:
The Pro 7 received a modest spec bump in the way of new 10th-generation (Ice Lake) Intel Core processors. The design remains similar to that of earlier generations of the device. However, it now finally comes with a Type-C port that replaces the Mini DisplayPort. The base SKU packing an Intel Core i3 processor with 4GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage starts at $749 and goes all the way up to the Intel Core i7 sporting SKU with 16GB of RAM and 1TB of internal storage costing $2299.

Surface Laptop 3:
The Laptop 3 update is somewhat major, as it now comes in two sizes – 13-inch and 15-inch variants – with the addition of a customized AMD processor on the larger variant running Radeon RX Vega graphics. Like the Pro 7, the Laptop 3 too sees the addition of a Type-C port. The base SKU of the Laptop 3 running a 10th-generation (Ice Lake) Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory starts at $999. The top of the line 15-inch SKU powered by the AMD Ryzen Microsoft Edition chipset along with Vega 11 graphics will set you back by $2799. That version comes with a terabyte of storage and 32GB of RAM.

Surface Pro X:
The latest entrant into the Surface family is the Pro X. Powered by a custom ARM chipset called the Microsoft SQ1 chipset based on Qualcomm’s flagship offering, the Pro X sports an extremely thin profile with thin bezels, two Type-C ports and a 13-inch display packed into a 12-inch chassis. It is coupled with a new Type Cover that houses the new Surface Slim Pen. The base variant that sports 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage starts at $999 and tops out at $1799. For that price, you get 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
