The new 128GB Surface Pro 3 model (previously the i7 version was only available with a 256GB or 512GB SSD) comes with 8GB or RAM and is now available at the Microsoft Online Store for just $1299.00 USD.
This makes the price exactly the same as the i5/256GB model but trades a little more CPU horsepower for a little less internal storage.
Aside from the CPU and storage changes, the new Surface Pro 3 model still features a 2,160×1,440 pixel resolution 12-inch display screen, a full size USB 3.0 port, microSD card slot, kickstand, stylus, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth as well as a full copy of Windows 8.1 Pro.
So, if you’re in the market for a Surface Pro 3 and wanted as much CPU as you could get but don’t care so much about internal storage, this might be the model you’re looking for.
