Microsoft launches cheaper Surface Pro 3 with i7 processor and 128GB of storage
Microsoft has just went ahead and announced a 6th model to its pre-existing range of Surface Pro 3 convertibles. The New Surface Pro 3 is having the same Core i7 processor clocked at 1.7GHz and having 8GB of memory same as its older Surface Pro 3 Versions, but becomes shy in the storage area slightly: whereas in the older i7 models of the Surface you had either 256GB or 512GB of storage options, but instead the new variant comes with only 128GB of storage. But don’t be sceptic that downgrade fortunately, brings the price of the surface pro 3 down. The Newer 128GB Surface Pro 3 with Core i7 processor costs $1,299 that is the same price tag as the Core i5 version or the Surface Pro 3 with 256GB of storage that processor boost is quite a lot considering that you can attach an External Hard Drive.
By this day The Surface Pro 3 has turned more than a year old now, and a new offering from microsoft was needed and now that this new model of the Surface Pro 3 could be Microsoft just offering a cheaper option before they make the move and bring in the much newer and better Surface Pro 4 that is to be surely just around the corner. But the timing that is just before September — means that Microsoft could just simply be trying to know the potential Surface owners that are gearing up to go back to school. At the same time, the company is also introducing updated LTE Surface 3 models in Germany and the UK this week which by now was necessary by Microsoft because every other competitor has LTE on their convertible devices. Microsoft says the devices, which went on sale in Japan first two weeks ago, will become available in the US in the coming weeks.
