More Surface Laptop color options coming soon to the Core i7 model

Shortly after the Surface Laptop was revealed in May, some were dismayed to find out that its variety of colors, one of its biggest draws, were only all available on the Core i5 model. Fortunately, if you've been holding out hope that all four colors might make their way to the Core i7 model, it looks like you might not have to wait much longer. Microsoft is now listing the Burgundy, Cobalt Blue, and Graphite Gold color options as coming soon for the i7 model on the U.S. Microsoft Store.

In particular, the model in question comes packed with an Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. The additional colors join the Platinum option, which is currently the only one available in this particular model. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the Core i7 model with 256GB of SSD storage and 8GB of RAM is set to receive additional color options just yet.

The added color options should still come in at $2,199 — the same price as the Platinum version of the model. That's a bit on the pricey side, but it's good to see that all four colors are coming to an additional configuration. Other than a general "coming soon," it's not clear when the options will arrive, but we'll bring you an update once they do.
