Actually, they still have "that" model and it is completely meaningless this time around (see my post above). The M3 is cheaper, no doubt about that, than the i5 model. But with just 4 GB RAM, you might as well buy either the Surface Go with 8 GB RAM for something smaller and more convenient or cough up the extra $150 and get the significantly faster quad-core i5 Surface Pro 6. --- Seriously, the more I read, the more poor product decisions I find with this generation. At this point, I have resigned to the fact that this was a disaster release. But I actually find it quite funny how they let so very many bad decisions slip through unnoticed. It has basically become a scavenger hunt of finding the next mistake. They really were not even trying and the difference in effort compared to last year is crystal clear. All that said, I am officially signing off now.
