Last month, we told you that the Core i7 Surface Laptop would be getting new color options. Well, the day has finally come for those who were eager for a splash of new color for the Surface in their life. Indeed, the Core i7 Surface Laptop is now available in Cobalt Blue and Burgundy (via Windows Central.)
For now, only US residents can order the Core i7 Surface Laptop in Cobalt Blue and Burgundy. As seen below, the Graphite Gold model is still being listed as “coming soon,” so those eager for that color will need to wait longer. Either way, these are the top of the line models, with a 512GB SSD, the slightly faster Intel Core i7 CPU with 16GB of RAM, and Intel Iris Plus graphics.
Of course, the top of the line features do come at roughly double price, which is $2,199 over the much more standard $1,299 Core i5 models. Even so, it’s still not certain why Microsoft waited this long to open up orders for the Core i7 models in other colors. Let us know in the comments below if you will be taking advantage of the availability of these colors.Further reading: Microsoft, Surface, Surface Laptop
