Microsoft’s upcoming smaller Surface tablet reportedly has no Core M or Core I processors, but less powerful Pentium models from Intel. There have been rumors of a successor to the Surface 3 of a few years ago.
The cheaper processors would be needed to reduce the price of the Surface tablet. There would also be a cheaper stylus. A device that meets the characteristics of a Surface ‘Lite’ tablet recently appeared at the American inspection agency FCC. It would be a variant with a 10 “screen, smaller than the current Surface Pro models with a 12.3” screen. What the price of the cheaper model is not yet clear. The Surface Pro is now available for purchase from 749 euros.
