Surface Laptop now available with 1TB of storage

If you've been holding out on buying a Surface Laptop to get the most storage possible, you're in luck. The Surface Laptop is now available (opens in new tab) with a 1TB storage option, doubling its previous capacity cap of 512GB.

However, if maximum storage is at the top of your list, you'll have to settle for limitations in other areas. The 1TB option is only available with the Surface Laptop in platinum, so you won't be able to deck yours out in cobalt, burgundy, or gold colors.

The 1TB model is also only available with 16GB of RAM and Intel's Core i7 processor. Essentially, you'll have to be willing to go all in on specs if you want the most storage possible. That'll net you a decent amount of power, in addition to Intel's Iris Plus 640 graphics, but it'll cost you a pretty penny ($2,699 to be exact).

In any case, the 1TB Surface Laptop is up for grabs now. There's no word on whether we can expect the storage option to be available with other colors in the future, but if you're okay with platinum, you can pick one up now at Microsoft.

  • The question is, will Microsoft keep the surface business or spin it off like groove?
  • The answer is clear for the foreseeable future. Surface is making money from both consumers and enterprises and is a prestigious product line that only recently got new products (new Surface Pro and Surface Laptop) with more in the pipeline (Surface Book next year). I know many of you are hurt about Groove Music but don't be silly. They are not comparable in any way.
  • Thank you for this answer 🙂
  • Even if Surface were in danger of being spun off as you say - which again, I really don't see being the case anytime soon - since they run normal Windows, there would be no Windows RT situation and you'd be able to use it for as long as you please (and as long as the hardware works) like any other Windows laptop out there. So nothing to worry about.
  • The calculus is simply -- Are they making money?  If yes, they are holding on.   Are they loosing money?  then it is getting the boot. The Surface Unit has been making money.  Groove, has never made money.
  • How do you know?
  • Because the 568 people that used it all comment on this site.
  • This kind of comment will be the new "first" comment. On every article regardless of the topic, someone is going to make some kind of comment about Microsoft discontinuing x or y. Sigh.
  • I hope they do a coffee lake refresh
  • I was wondering if there is anyone here that has a surface laptop that could comment on whether its a viable option to say a surface pro or dell xps?
  • I don't have one but I've looked into getting one in the past, both for myself and for a family member. My takeaway was, both times, it's not worth it - unless you care more about looks and status symbolism than functionality, AND really dislike the all of the convertible form factors. Some people feel strongly about both those things, but that's not me, or most I know. From a pure value for money standpoint this thing is abysmal. 
  • Surface provides choices. I like choices
  • I love Surface... Writting this from SP4... excellent choice and product!
  • At this point they are charging Apple prices
  • So it'll be about 4 grand in Australia, I could buy an Alienware top of the line 15 Inch for that price, this is getting ridiulous.
  • Check !
  • Finally..... The comment section is working. 😒😒😒😒😒😒
  • Why the heck do you need 1TB in a cloud-focused laptop with an O/S designed to take on ChromeOS? Crazy. It's expensive enough as it is, without adding more cost.
  • Agreed with your first point.but still it requires local file storage space
