While your smartphone is headed back to meet its maker, Samsung is rolling out a flashier Gold Edition of its already svelte Galaxy TabPro S tablet. It's been less than a year since the PC replacement debuted, and Samsung is already jumping on the gold finish trend and bumping up the specs with 8GB of RAM, a 256GB solid state hard drive and a battery that should be good for 10.5 hours of video playback.

Aside from the RAM boost and that gold finish on the magnesium alloy body, there's not much else new here. You're still getting the same 12-inch Super AMOLED Full HD display, a 2.2 Ghz Intel M3 processor, and five-megapixel front- and rear-facing cameras as the earlier model. The Gold Edition TabPro S still clocks in at an airy 1.53 pounds without the keyboard, and you still get one USB-A for peripherals and one USB-C port for charging. There is one other difference though: the whole package will set you back a cool $999.99 when it goes on sale at Best Buy and Samsung.com today. On the other hand, if you're not a fan of the gold look -- or can get by with half the RAM and half the storage -- the earlier model is currently going for $799.99 on Samsung's site.
