When Microsoft took the wraps off of its latest Surface device, the Surface Go, earlier this month, the company announced it would only come in two configurations: a $399 model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, along with a $549 model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. However, now it looks like a third option is in the cards, splitting things right down the middle with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
Initially reported by Neowin, Costco has the previously unannounced model for sale as a bundle deal for $549. While that price matches that of the model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, Costco's bundle includes the $99 Surface Type Cover. Taking that into account, it looks like this new model will go for $449 on its own.
If you were looking to strike a compromise between the entry-level model and the high end, this new variant looks to provide a nice balance between the two. The bundle deal is now available for preorder at Costco with an August 2 release date. Note, however, that only Costco members can place orders.
If you're not a Costco member, the other two variants are up for preorder now at the Microsoft Store and Best Buy, with the latter offering a $50 gift card as a bonus.
