If you've been holding off on picking up Surface Laptop in anticipation of more color options on the top-end models, the wait is over. After opening up preorders in early September, the Core i7 Surface Laptop is now available and shipping (opens in new tab) (via Neowin) in all four color options: graphite gold, cobalt blue, burgundy, and platinum. Previously, the Core i7 models were only available in platinum.
The new color options are available with two Core i7 configurations. You can your choice of colors with either 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, or with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. Curiously, the 1TB model, which went on sale in early October, isn't available with the expanded color options.
According to Microsoft's original announcement, the new color options should be available in 20 markets around the world, including:
Pricing is the same as it was for the platinum model, with the base i7 model coming in at $1,599. The top-end model with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage surges up to $2,199.

IMO it's silly to buy a laptop today that doesn't have Coffe Lake or Ryzen CPUs.
and even then it would be silly because of the next upcoming chip, or the next, etc.
still no black..oh well :(
Well, the Surface laptop never even had a leak in that regard. Only the Surface book.
I wish The book 2s came in nice colors. That would be awesome.
Hmm... Can't say i agree there, but i can see where your mind is... Yes there are a couple tweaks in how well certain software perform on a quad core chip compared to dual core. However to a student, or the average user not interested in a 2-in-1, not much difference will be seen in their eyes. And with the Laptop hitting the mark on everything else (lightweight, all day battery life, picture quality, performance of OS) i can't see much sillyness there.
