Watch the official live stream of Microsoft’s Surface event in NYC here

Microsoft is just about to kick off its Surface event, which is slated to begin at 8 am PDT/11 am EDT. If you’re hell bent on keeping up with whatever news comes out of Redmond’s showcase, you can watch an official Microsoft live stream of today’s Surface festivities by clicking here. Unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be a way to embed the live stream below. We reached out to Microsoft for an embed code, and if they provide us with one, we’ll update this story accordingly.

So, what’s exactly on tap for today’s event? There are one of three main possibilities: Microsoft will either reveal a Surface Pro 3, or a Surface Mini, or both. However, the newest rumors indicate that Microsoft will hold the Surface Mini back from today’s event.

As for the Surface Pro 3, the latest round of rumors indicate that Microsoft will roll out five new flavors of the slate. The base model will cost $799 and pack an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. The next step up is the $999 version, which bumps the CPU to a Core i5, keeps the RAM constant at 4GB, and doubles the storage. For $1,299, you still get a Core i5-powered Surface Pro 3, but the RAM jumps to 8GB and storage shoots up to 256GB.

From there, the price goes up to $1,549, which nets you an Intel Core i7 processor, but keeps the RAM and storage at $1,299 levels. And then there’s the mack daddy model: an Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of memory, and a 512GB hard drive for the break-out-in-a-cold-sweat price of $1,949.

Should these price and spec rumors turn out to be accurate, the Surface Pro 3’s appeal will be significantly diminished right from the get-go, simply due to the fact that there are a number of more affordable and capable computing options that are widely available already.

Either way, we’re just moments away from hearing it all straight from the horse’s mouth. Enjoy the show!
