The Microsoft Store is now selling a new $999 configuration of the Surface Laptop, offering a little more bang for your buck. As first spotted by Neowin, the new configuration sports a Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.

The highlight here is that this represents a new entry point for the Core i5 variant. Previously, only the Core i5 configuration with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage was available for $999. That version is now listed as out of stock. Essentially, Microsoft is doubling the RAM capacity for the same price.

Last month, Microsoft made a similar move with the Surface Pro, doubling the RAM for the $999 model while seemingly retiring the previous Core i5 entry point.

If you're interested, the $999 Core i5 configuration is now available to purchase from the Microsoft Store.
