Only one Microsoft Surface Pro 3 model will ship on June 20

Microsoft started taking pre-orders for its new Surface Pro 3 tablet on May 21, saying that two models should start shipping on June 20: the Intel i5 unit with 128GB of storage, and the i5 with 256GB of storage space. However, Microsoft Store’s website is now mentioning that the i5 128GB model is delayed, and will be shipped “by June 30.” So the 256GB version is the only one that's still expected to be available on June 20.

Prices for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 start at $799 (Intel i3 with 64GB of storage space and 4GB of RAM), and go up to $1,949 (i7 with 512GB of storage space and 8GB of RAM). All models offer 12-inch displays with 2,160 x 1,440 pixels, two 5MP cameras (on the front and back), stereo speakers, microSD card reader, full-size USB 3.0 port, and a battery that can get you through “up to 9 hours of web browsing.”

Microsoft says the Surface Pro 3 (which runs Windows 8.1 Pro) is a tablet which can replace your laptop, betting on the fact that, for an extra $129.99, it’s offering a Type Cover detachable keyboard for everyday typing. What do you say, would you ditch your laptop for the new Surface Pro?

Update: If you ordered the Surface Pro 3 with Intel i5 and 128GB of internal memory prior to today, you may receive it on June 20 after all.
