Towards the end of October last year, the Microsoft’s Surface Pro with LTE was announced essentially for to business customers. Microsoft’s website now shows that the Surface Pro model with LTE is now available for pre-order from any consumer.
Presently, there is only a single LTE model available for pre-order. That’s the one with an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage. If your wallet feels convenient to please you, this LTE model runs for $1,449 and for those who are wondering: that does not include the Type Cover or Surface Pen. The LTE model has a $150 premium over the non-LTE version of the Surface Pro with the same specs.
As student, parent, teacher, or member of the military, you might be eligible to get that price down to $1,300 and change.
If you want the non-LTE model, the cheapest Surface Pro model goes for $799 with an Intel Core m3, 128GB + 4GB RAM. The most expensive model goes for a staggering $2699 with an Intel Core i7 + 16GB + 1TB.
According to ARS Technica there would not be an LTE-enabled i7 model due to the additional cooling fan that takes up room where the LTE modem would have to be placed.
