After a first look at the new Surface Go 3 models, Microsoft is expanding its 2-in-1 portfolio in Europe especially in Germany. The Redmond-based company has announced new configurations not only for the entry-level tablet, but also for the Surface Pro 8 (for Business) and the Surface Pro X.
The new year begins for Microsoft’s Surface division with a minor hardware upgrade of the already available lineup, which is primarily shown with new Intel processors as well as WLAN and LTE configurations. Among other things, the Surface Pro 8 for Business is being launched, which is offered in its cheapest version with an 11th generation Intel Core i3, 8 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD for 1179 euros. Private customers get a Core i5 processor for the same price, but at least have to do without Windows 11 Pro or Windows 10 Pro ex works.
Matt black and LTE for Surface Go 3, Wi-Fi model of the Surface Pro X
Last week we reported on the expansion of the Surface Go 3 selection, which is now officially confirmed by Microsoft’s German subsidiary. The 10-inch tablet, which is primarily intended for beginners, can now be configured in a matt black color variant and with a combination of an Intel Core i3 processor and an integrated LTE module. The price for the new equipment is 779 euros. For the cellular upgrade you have to plan exactly 100 euros more, while the basic model with an Intel Pentium chip continues to be sold from 439 euros.
Last but not least, Microsoft is now also offering its Surface Pro X ARM tablet without an LTE module, which lowers the base price by 100 euros to 949 euros. In addition to the Microsoft SQ1 chip, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of SSD storage are installed in the basic configuration. The choice of colors is limited, however. The cheapest 4G model is only available in matt black and the WLAN versions are delivered in silver platinum. If the SQ2 chip is to be used, you have to plan in 1349 euros. There is no “color lock” and 16 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD are used.
