In recent days, there have been reports that Microsoft will not only launch the Surface Mini on May 20, it will also unveil the Surface Pro 3. Some reports claim the tablet will ship with a 12-inch screen instead of the 10.6-inch display the company has used on its previous Surface and Surface Pro series. A new report has uncovered what we can expect the Surface Pro 3 to feature in terms of some of its specs and pricing details.

Windows Phone Central is reporting that Microsoft will make the Surface Pro 3 available in five different configurations with varying pricing:

i3-4GB RAM-64GB - $799
i5-4GB RAM-128GB - $999
i5-8GB RAM-256GB - $1299
i7-8GB RAM-256GB - $1549
i7-8GB RAM-512GB - $1949
The site also claims that Microsoft will announce redesigned Type covers for the Surface Mini and Surface Pro 3 to fit the new sized displays. The Type covers will be offered in four-color options, black, purple, cyan, and red. The red type covers are believed to be a Microsoft exclusive that will only be sold in the company's retail stores.

I don't know if this "leak" is legit. I would think that MS would be playing this very close to the vest and only a few people would have any kind of specs. With that said, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what the "12 inch" Surface Pro 3 has to offer. I like the idea of of a larger surface to draw and paint on. But it's what's under the hood that is going to make me want to buy it or decided to stick with SP2. If I do end up getting the SP3, it will probably be i5-8GB RAM-256GB - $1299 if that price point holds true.
