Microsoft to launch mid-range Surface laptop for under $600

Over the years, Microsoft has expanded its Surface line of products. Earlier, the company only focused on selling tablets, but now there’s a Surface Laptop, Surface Book 2 in 1, Surface Duo smartphone, Surface Headphones, Surface Earbuds, and much more. Only, one this is maintained all over the years, that is, Microsoft does not sell cheap products!

More or less, each of these Surface gadgets is priced more than the industry average. This is common in almost all aspects. It seems that after this ongoing pandemic, the company has decided to make an exception this year with its Microsoft Surface Laptop 3. It must be noted that Surface Go, a relatively affordable Windows tablet is also an exception as it came with a minimum price tag of US $ 399 for the basic model.

Eventually, Surface Go came with a price tag lower than Surface Pro so many people used it as a cheaper alternative.

As we told earlier, Microsoft is preparing something similar to the Surface Laptop line. As per Windows Central reports, this laptop is going to be smaller and cheaper. This Surface Laptop variant might come in October 2020.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 comes with a display of 12.5 inches. The device is codenamed as “Sparti” and it is expected to have a starting price between US $ 500 and US $ 600. As of now, no specification is confirmed by the company but as per rumors, the laptop is going to come with a 10th generation Intel Core i5 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal storage. However, we have no clue whether this Intel Core i5 processor is a Comet Lake chip with Intel UHD graphics or an Ice Lake chip with an Intel Iris GPU.

According to Windows Central, this version of the Surface Laptop will be more lightweight and compact than the current 13.5 inches Surface Laptop. Windows Central also makes sure that Sparti “looks and feels like a typical Surface product, meaning Microsoft hasn’t compromised on build quality to achieve a lower price.” As of now, it is expected at a Microsoft event in October 2020.
