    You might want to check the Surface Go thread. Core m3 looks to be in cards for the next iteration of the Go. ;)

    The potential SKUS:
    • Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i3, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD (Most likely the Intel Core i3-10110Y)
    • Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD (Most likely the Intel Core i5-1035G1)
    • Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD (Ditto)
    • Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD (No clue, but my hunch is it's the Core i7-1065G7)
    • Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD (Ditto)

    Even though it’s the low end option....I kind of hate that Microsoft is even still offering 4GB as an option....I really feel that for the Pro 7.....Microsoft should make 8GB the default standard by now,

    Totally. 8 GB is needed to run comfortably with the normal accompaniment of windows and browsers all chugging in the foreground and background. It's an embarrassment to see them do it when it costs them what--a couple dollars now?-- for a measly 4 GB more of RAM. I understand a few dollars multiplies like rabbits across hundreds of thousands of units meaning a million dollars or more of cost reduction but this isn't 2014 for crying out loud. Then again, this might be their off-menu, bargain bin SKU, along the lines of the one that Surface Pro that is offered at Best Buy with Core m3 that isn't Surface Pro 6 but shares the same hardware, where this also really isn't Surface Pro 7 and yet is and goes for $599 or so.

    Microsoft Store rep response: you can just go out and buy a micro SD card and install that. *Facepalm* Ah, the slow storage woes continue!

    To be fair, I'm perfectly content with my 512 GB Samsung micro SD card which is zippy unlike SanDisk's... efforts. Hmph. But the world's one-and-only 1TB Micro SD is still mountain-load-of-cash expensive.

    Well, that is exceedingly underwhelming. So the "one more thing" moment will be 16gb RAM and 1TB SSD?

    Agreed, but it's trying to hit a price point. I just hope they don't also do like the lower end go and put EMMC storage in it.
