Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book have certainly made an impression with techies everywhere. Some really heavy-duty users may feel a little constrained by the top-end option for 512GB of flash storage, though, and Microsoft is addressing that issue with a 1TB storage option.
Both the convertible and tablet are now available for purchase with 1TB SSD options, making enough room for all those CAD files and million-dollar-wrangling Excel sheets. The step up from the 512GB SSDs comes at a steep price, though. Microsoft is charging a hefty $500 premium for the 1TB-equipped versions, which puts the flash storage's price at a neat $1/GB (remember those days?) Heck, that's about as expensive as Apple's RAM.
The 1TB option is only available on the most powerful models of each lineup. The 1TB Surface Book will set you back $3,199, and comes with an Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a dedicated graphics card. That model will be available February 5. Meanwhile, the Surface Pro 4 with 1TB of storage, a Core i7 CPU, and 16GB of RAM is priced at $2,699.
