Microsoft’s new Surface Laptop and Surface Pro on sale now

If you’ve been eagerly anticipating Microsoft’s new Surface devices, it’s time to bust out your wallet. Both the new Surface Laptop and Surface Pro are on sale today in the U.S. and 27 other countries around the world, while the Surface Studio has finally landed in the U.K. There are some caveats, however.

In the U.S., the new Surface Laptop starts at $999. The entry-level notebook ships with an Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB solid-state drive. If you want a color other than platinum, you’ll have to upgrade to the $1,299 model, which ships with a faster Core i5, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage — and also comes in burgundy, cobalt blue, and graphite gold.

Sadly, the other color options aren’t yet available in the U.K. or any other market outside of the U.S. no matter which model you go for. Microsoft says they will be coming later, but if you can’t wait, you’re stuck with the platinum option. You will get the same one-year subscription to Office 365 and 1TB of free OneDrive storage, however.

As for the new Surface Pro, that starts at $799 in the U.S., which gets you an Intel Core m3 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The top-of-the-line model, which offers a Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of storage, is priced at $2,699. Microsoft says its new 4G model will be available later this year.

Those in the U.K. can also purchase the Surface Studio today. The all-in-one starts at £2,999 (approx. $3,834) and comes with a Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 1TB of hybrid storage, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M GPU with 2GB of GDDR5 memory.
