Microsoft Store has now started selling a new variant of Surface Laptop in the US. You can now get a Surface Laptop with Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD for just $999. Yes, you get 4GB extra RAM for the same $999 starting price. Unsurprisingly, the 4GB RAM model is now out of stock, which indicates that Microsoft would have replaced the 4GB model with the new 8GB model without changing the price. Also, you still need to get a 256GB SSD Surface Laptop if you prefer colors other than the boring Platinum.
