At the baseline $999 price, the device comes with a 32nm Intel 1.60GHz Core i5 2467M Sandy Bridge processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 128GB SSD. Pricing ranges all the way up to $1,499 and at the highest end, the specifications include an Intel 1.70GHz Core i7 2637M Sandy Bridge processor, 4GB of DDR3 and a 256GB SSD.
