Microsoft is rumoured to release a low-cost Surface tablet this week

Microsoft is rumoured to be working on a new Surface device, one which will allow the company to bring their convertible tablet/notebook series to lower price points than ever before.  

This new low-cost Surface book is designed to compete with inexpensive iPads and Chromebooks, with early leaks suggesting that the new unit will cost as little as $399 for the education market. The notebook will reportedly use an Intel Pentium Gold processor with an 1800x1200 screen and be officially revealed on July 13th. 

This reveal date is an ideal time to launch a low-cost back-to-school notebook, with specifications leaks revealing that there will be a version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage, a version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and LTE enabled variants with 8GB of RAM and either 128 or 256GB of built-in storage. The series will reportedly have a maximum price of $829 without accessories.

Strangely, Microsoft has decided to avoid ARM processors in their low-cost Surface tablet, likely due to the compatibility issues associated with x86 emulation on ARM CPUs.
