We already reported all the details regarding Microsoft's Surface Laptop 3 series as soon as the company revealed all the official specifications, and with updated keyboard with 1.33mm key travel, a 20 percent bigger trackpad, fast-charging, USB-C and USB-A ports, new machined aluminum finish, and more, the Surface Laptop 3 is on a good path to become one of the popular laptops on the market.
Available for pre-order as of today, both the 13.5-inch and 15-inch Surface Laptop 3 will start shipping to its first customers on October 22nd, and Microsoft confused things with Intel and AMD CPUs as well as two different screen sizes. While some might misinterpret the information from Microsoft, bear in mind that AMD's custom Surface Edition Ryzen CPUs are reserved for the Surface Laptop 3 15-inch, at least for now, while Intel's 10th gen Core CPUs are available on the 13.5-inch version.
Microsoft announced starting prices earlier, putting them at $999 for the 13.5-inch, and $1,199 for the 15-inch one. Now, the configurator has been updated and we have full details as well as all the prices, and it goes as high as $2,799 for the 15-inch AMD Ryzen 7 3780U SKU with 32GB of RAM, and 1TB of SSD storage.
Strangely enough, the $2,799 option is grayed out on every color and finish, so the best one you can buy now is the 15-inch Platinum one with AMD Ryzen 7 3780U, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage, all for $2,099.
The Surface Laptop 3 13.5-inch starts at $999, and it gives you the Platinum (fabric) color option, with Intel Core i5-1035G7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of SSD storage. The most expensive 13.5-inch model is priced at $2,399, and you get the quad-core Core i7-1065G7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of SSD storage. Strangely, there is no Intel option with 32GB of RAM, at least so far.
Of course, the price can go further up if you add one-year of Office 365 Home edition for $79.99 (for 6 users) or $49.99 for a single user, or Microsoft's Complete warranty with Accidental Damage Coverage for $149.
You can check out or even pre-order any Surface Laptop 3 that is not out of stock over at Microsoft's official store.
