Microsoft’s Surface line includes both traditional laptops and 2-in-1s. The Surface Go 2 is practically the cheapest Surface computer and it starts at $399. It has now been reported that Microsoft is working on a new Surface Laptop that will be more affordable than existing models.
According to WindowsCentral, Microsoft has a new mid-range Surface Laptop in development called “Sparti” that will be targeted at students. Their sources have informed them that the notebook will have a 12.5-inch screen and its base model will ship with a 10th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.
Sparti is expected to sit between the Surface Go and Surface Pro with respect to pricing, so its price should fall between $399 and $749. It is speculated to cost about $500 with higher configurations entering $600.
The source adds that even with the affordable price tag, Microsoft has not cut corners with respect to quality which means we should expect similar build quality to other Surface products. The notebook is also said to be lightweight and compact.
Microsoft is expected to announce a slate of new products next month and “Sparti” may be among them making it available in time for the holidays.
