Last May, Microsoft debuted its new Surface Pro that succeeded the Surface Pro 4. It included top of the line specs for 2017 and even LTE in a special model. That special model hasn’t yet hit the consumer market, but just shy of 10 months later, the device is going up for preorder.
Starting today, consumers can preorder a Microsoft Surface Pro with LTE connectivity starting at $1,149. This will get you an Intel Core i5 7300U processor with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. To upgrade to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, you’ll need to pay $1,449. Both don’t include any fans.
It’s worth noting that the Core i5 included is the only processor available with LTE. In other words, you won’t be able to get an Intel Core i7 processor and still access the web from wherever you are. While it’s really unfortunate, a Core i7 with LTE would probably cost a pretty penny anyhow considering what it costs for an i5 with LTE.
You can preorder a Surface Pro with LTE from Microsoft’s website here.
