Surface Pro 4 with 1TB of storage available for pre-order for $2,699

When Microsoft first announced the Surface Pro 4 12.3-inch tablet earlier this month, we mentioned that there would be a very high-end model that would have 1TB of PCIe storage and an Intel Core i7 processor. Now that version of the tablet is now available for pre-order on the Microsoft Store site, and it has a premium price point of $2,699.

This version of the Surface Pro 4 is so special, it gets it own pre-order page on the Microsoft Store site, separate from the site's normal Surface Pro 4 order page. Shipments of this model are also different; they are not scheduled to begin until January 22.

Would you pay $2,699 to get a Surface Pro 4 with 1TB of PCIe 3.0 storage and a Core i7 chip? Let us know in the comments!

  • Wow, and the (to me!) amazing part is there are people who will get this.  
  • Not me. But I will pay that much for a Surface Book with half a TB of storage.
  • My SP3 does everything I need but I will get the new keyboard for better typing and the larger precision touchpad. I do WANT this SP4 though, but just can't justify the expenditure :( Maybe next year :)
  • Can the sp4 keyboard fit over the sp3 without overlapping the edges of the tablet
  • External dimensions are the same for both SP3 and SP4. The extra screen real estate on the SP4 comes from MS reducing the bezel size.
  • Yes, they are both the same size. The SP4 has a larger screen size due to less bezel. I think keeping the same size is a stroke of genius by Microsoft as we can update the accessories.
  • I agree. Or, to put it differently, a fairly obvious and only sensible thing to do since the SP4 is probably not worth an upgrade for most SP3 owners. :) This way they can benefit from new accessories if they want, and MS can squeeze a bit more revenue from them.

  • Thanks
  • At this point I'll go with a Surface Book!
  • Somebody lend me the money. I'll pay you back in 2020.;)
  • Sure 25% interest and someone else must co-sign...I'll loan you the money :) LOL
  • I don't have a need for it, but I want one. I just can't afford it.
  • Dedicated GPU for the ULTIMATE laptop confirmed! Daniel please make an article. I won't tell yet what it is though. For obvious spoiler reasons. ;)    
  • So cheap, I pre ordered two! /s
  • Is it even pcie ssd?
  • PCIe 3.0, yes.
  • OK, OK. It's a modified GTX 940. Daniel, you probably know this already but what do you think? Why not a GTX 960?
  • It's not a modified anything, completely custom GPU that needs to be benchmarked on its own.
  • Yeah, it's probably optimized as hell. Still, the clock speeds are even slightly lower than a normal GTX 940m. So, it will more likely be a bit slower even. Also, interchangable basis! Maybe more powerful GPU base in 2016? Would be kinda plausible, we already have different TypeCovers...
  • Do ALL Surface pro 4's use a PCIe ssd? If not, why not?
  • No thanks I'll grab 4TB external
  • Enjoy that spinning disk experience over USB.
  • So you can get the 1TB SP4, Type Cover, and 2 year complete warranty and still be $121 ahead of the VAIO Z Canvas... Not a bad deal in comparison.
  • Out of reach for me. But what a dream.
  • No thanks , I will grab Dell Inspiron 7000 series 6th i7 with intel real sense for Windows Hello , 16GB Ram , 1TB hard disk when it arrives India... Well I miss the pen feature... But its ok Microsoft won't sell them in India
  • What do you think the price rate will be?
  • Nah, I don't need that much flash storage, and my mobile computing needs are too infrequent and casual for an i7. I'd sooner go with the m3 or i5 and a portable external HDD for another $50-100.
  • This is a 1TB PCIe SSD though.
  • That was my point. I don't need 1 TB of flash storage. Really, no one does. In most cases, people with large libraries have media content that doesn't really take a long time to access in the first place. The time between opening a TV show on a 7200-RPM external drive vs. a SSD is negligible, same for music. I just don't need the speed, it's nowhere near worth the money to me. Like I said, such a thing, for me, would be a secondary PC. My desktop does the heavy lifting, so something much cheaper would fit my wants and needs without making my wallet cry out in agony.
  • He'll no! But I want!

  • In Europe will problaby cost 2699 euros. With that money i will buy a 699euros desktop pc and a car and i will be much more mobile than surface will ever be.
  • Nope, says coming soon
  • Daniel you may need to update your blog post. In the US the i7, 16gb RAM, 1tb says coming soon on the Microsoft site as of 3:30pm pacific
  • Is stupidly expensive... the sad part is that some people will buy it hahahahahah Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • That option isn't even available in the UK online store. Why not? How come we keep getting the short straw?
