Microsoft is expanding its Surface for Business program today. The company is bringing its latest Surface devices to more countries as part of the latest expansion, and it’s also making some new configurations available.
In Europe, the company is now authorizing its commercial partners to sell select configs of the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 in 11 new markets, including Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovenia and Slovakia. Both the devices are tailored for business use, and they are available with the international English keyboard.
Over in the United States and Canada, Microsoft is making new configurations of the devices available. Microsoft is now offering an Intel Core i5 model of both the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, which is a pretty awesome change. Considering that you had to get the Core i7 variant in order to get 16GB of RAM in the past, being able to get it with the Core i5 should give you some more power at a lower cost. And for businesses, that’s a lot of money.
Microsoft is only making the new configuration available in the United States and Canada this month, though it says it will look into making the new configuration available in more countries later on.
