Microsoft has been working on making its Surface Pro better and better by the day. It wasn’t too long ago that it brought in new variants of the device to the Indian market. Microsoft has now updated its online store with new variants of the device, this time with a Core i5, 8GB RAM, and a 128GB SSD. So, what’s so good about this? Well, this is priced at $999, the very same price as the entry-level variant of the Core i5 with 4GB RAM.
The 4GB RAM variant has received a price cut and now bears a price tag of $799, making it as expensive as the Core m3 variant of the device. However, the laptop with the Core m3 has been sold out for quite a while now and hasn’t been restocked. Could this mean that that the company is phasing out this variant to make way for upgraded versions with more RAM? It seems that the company is doing so to provide more horsepower to meet the increased demands of consumers. The image below showcases the various variants of Microsoft’s Surface Pro.
Why does Microsoft go through the trouble of upgrading and lowering the price? This is mainly done to increase the per dollar value for the consumers and because in this day and age, you’re definitely going to want more than 4GB of RAM. It is a little unfortunate that the company has decided to stick with the seventh generation of Intel Core i5s. Let us know what you think about this in the comments section below!
Now with the augmented specs, the same price tag of $999 starts looking dwarf. That's how important newer specifications are!
That price was for the 4GB model. But it's price too has been slashed now by $200.
But that doesn't make the 8GB variant costlier, right?
