Microsoft adds $1,299 Core i7 version to Surface Pro 3 lineup


— 10:24 AM on June 29, 2015

Microsoft has quietly added a new member to its Surface Pro 3 family, packing an Intel Core i7 CPU, a 128GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM for $1,299. Previously, the cheapest Core i7 Surface Pro 3 was a much dearer $1,549, although it comes with a 256GB SSD, as well.

This new version could be an interesting choice for anyone after a little more oomph in the CPU department, as it means a $250 savings over the fully-loaded model. Buyers now have two clear-cut options at the $1,299 price point:  a Core i5 CPU and a 256GB SSD, or this newer Core i7 version and less local storage.
