Microsoft’s Surface Go 3, the company’s most affordable Windows 11 tablet is now available in a new Matte Black finish. You can pre-order this new black Surface Go 3 on the US Microsoft Store today, and it starts at $549 for the model with an Intel Pentium 6500Y processor, 9GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD.

If you prefer to get the Matte Black Surface Go 3 with the more powerful Intel Core i3 processor, the WiFi-only model will cost you $629.99 and the version with an LTE modem is priced at $729.99. As usual, the Surface Go Type Cover and Surface Pen are sold separately.

In addition to this new Matte Black Surface Go 3, Microsoft has also started offering a new Surface Pro 8 with LTE for business customers (via Windows Central). This new LTE model starts at $1,349.99 for the version with an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The most expensive model is priced at $1,849.99 and it comes with an Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 256 GB of storage.

This new Surface Pro 8 LTE is currently only available in the classic Platinum finish, and it’s not clear yet if it will remain exclusive to the Microsoft Store for Business. Anyway, both the Surface Go 3 and the Surface Pro 8 are now available with an LTE modem, and this is great news for consumers interested in using the Windows 11 tablets on the go.
