Surface Laptop 2 preorders are now live on the Microsoft Store, with prices starting at $999 for the entry level model. Unlike last year, the new Surface Laptop 2 doesn't have a 4GB configuration, which explains the price bump for the "entry" model. Base spec now features 8GB RAM and an Intel Core i5 processor, with no Intel Core m3 option in sight.

The Surface Laptop 2 features a 13.5-inch PixelSense display, with an Intel 8th Gen processor and integrated graphics. Weirdly, there are no USB-C ports present on this years model, something many were hoping to see in a refreshed Surface Laptop. Shipments for the new Surface Laptop are expected to begin on October 16.
