Is Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 available with LTE?
Intel or AMD, but no LTE
There are two different models of the new Surface Laptop 3, but neither of them comes with LTE. Instead, you get a choice of sizes and processors, covering both Intel and AMD for the first time.
The 13-inch model is all Intel, while the 15-inch is all AMD outside of the business exclusive variants for sale. But neither have cellular connectivity; for that, you need to look elsewhere.
Surface Pro X is always connected
Surface Pro X is Microsoft's first attempt at an in-house ARM-powered Windows 10 2-in-1, and it's shaping up to be the poster child for the always-connected PC. It's not a laptop in the same vein as the Surface Laptop 3, but it's still full Windows 10, and importantly, it has LTE connectivity built into every version.
The Surface Pro X is a big step forward for Microsoft, with the slimmest bezels, thinnest form and lowest weight of any Surface Pro to date. Through a partnership with Qualcomm, the Surface Pro X boasts not only a cellular connection but performance gains on the previous generation Intel-based Surface Pros while providing excellent battery life and features like instant on.
If you're looking for a new Surface and LTE is essential, the Surface Pro X is the one to get.
Thinnest Surface Pro yet with an always-on LTE connection
Powered by a custom SQ1 CPU, powerful Adreno 685 GPU, and with LTE connectivity, the thinnest Surface Pro yet can keep up with a mobile lifestyle.
A stunning laptop but no LTE
The Surface Laptop 3, available in both 13.5- and 15-inch configurations is sure to please anyone looking for a premium Ultrabook. That is, as long as it's OK that there's no LTE on board.
