Microsoft has recently added new Surface Pro 3 model that comes with an Intel Core i7 4650U processor, a 128GB of solid state drive (SSD) storage and 8GB of RAM. Compared to the Surface Pro 3 with Intel Core i5 model, both models have the same price: $1,299, but have different specifications, like storage space, processor and graphics card.
The new Surface Pro 3 has an Intel Core i7, paired with an Intel HD 5000 and 128GB SSD, while the Surface Pro 3 model with Intel Core i5 has 256GB SSD and Intel HD 4400.
Until now, the company has offered six models of Surface Pro 3:
- Intel Core i3, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB SSD for $799
- Intel Core i5, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD for $999
- Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD for $1299
- Intel Core i7, 8 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD for $1299
- Intel Core i7, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD for $1549
- Intel Core i7, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD for $1949
We don’t know why Microsoft releases this new model and why now. And there’s still no sign about the next generation at the moment. Maybe there’s no Surface Pro 4 in the future.
