Microsoft Surface laptop with Intel Core m3-7Y30 onboard available for US$799
Last summer, Microsoft started selling the Surface laptop with Intel Core i5 and Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake processors, and the most affordable configuration had a price tag of US$999. For this amount, you would get the Intel Core i5 variant, with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage.
The introduction of a base model that can be acquired for US$799 is a smart move by Microsoft, although it has two problems: first, it should have happened earlier; second, the US$999 model mentioned earlier was already on sale a few times for this price, so pricing the new one a bit lower would have been a smart move.
The new Microsoft Surface laptop that can be acquired for a full retail price of US$799 only comes in a Platinum finish, and its main specs include the following: Intel Core m3-7Y30 processor, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB internal storage. Unlike the Microsoft Surface laptops with Intel Core i5 and Intel Core i7 processors, this model cannot be customized by adding more memory or a larger SSD drive.
The most expensive Surface laptop setup that can be ordered now from the Microsoft Store has an Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, and a 1 TB SSD drive. Its price tag reads US$2,699.
