    Just did. i5/8gb/256gb and cyan cover but I was digging around the site and I found a deep blue that’s a Best Buy exclusive. I might hold on to the cyan til I get the Best Buy Blue and then return the cyan to MS.

    • koenshaku

      envy I will not likely be able to get one until august.

  • Thoughtful

    The Surface Pro 2 seems to be gone from the Microsoft Canada online store. The Surface 2 and Surface Pro 3 are the only two listed. Surface 1’s are available in a clearance section. Also, in a city with 10 BestBuy stores, only one has reservable stock of Surface Pro 2. i5 models are shipping by June 20th, i3 and i7 are shipping by end of August.

    • Thoughtful

      The Canadian site has changed or I was going into the store the wrong way. As of a few moments ago the Surface Pro 2 is available in the MS Canada online store.

    The only reason I’m not buying one yet is because of the high price it has, I know that Microsoft cancelled the Mini, but they should know that in most markets lower prices actually do sell better, this is why Scroogle Android is king.

    • Tirinti

      This is true. Another selling point is possibility to chose different configurations.
      Surface Pro 3 has at least many options of CPU, RAM and SSD, but still no LTE option.
      In case of Lumia phones there is no single model with HD screen and microSD.

    • sin isfree

      yeah king of p.o.s $100 tablets .

  • ekral

    I have enought of waiting. They will not again sell this in the Czech Republic. I hate advertisment for something what I can not buy. My next mobile device will be Android or Apple.

    • koenshaku

      good luck with that considering they are entirely different devices.

  • Wtechrover

    I want to, but don’t know yet whether to pick one up in the US or wait till end of August to pick one up in the Netherlands.

    • Bugbog

      I’d say go for the US. US baseline price is $799. UK conversion is £475, maybe £550 inc tax. Official price? £613!

      May as well go with the devil you know, rather than wait to get ‘punched in the guts! :)

      • kevgallacher

        Not good advice.
        The price is $799 but then you have sale tax, shipping and insurance this would bring it to around $900 = £530. Then add on our VAT of 20% brings it to around £635. You then have to add on a new UK power cable @ £65 bringing it to £700. You also lose your standard 2 year warranty

  • Andreas Luebbers

    have anybody an idea how got get an i7 Device from the US? I am from Germany and don’t want to wait to end of August…

  • Malcolm Williams

    So, let me see if I grab this. For about 2k (highest end model), I get an i7, 512 gb ssd, and 8 gb of ram?

    And for the same price, I get more RAM, a keyboard (since ya know the type/touch covers are not included) and a machine with an external gpu (like nvidia or ati / amd).

    Why is the surface pro an enticing deal again?

    • koenshaku

      Because it is an ultraportable tablet that is more design friendly and you can toss out your notebook if you are a student. They are different devices for different purposes if you want a gamer ultrabook yeah you would do better off with a razor. If you want a device you design on and take notes that is the thinnest device Intel device and lightest on the market you get a Surface pro. I have personally longed for such portability with the power of my 16″ I7 laptop I don’t have to lug this thing around anymore and I get process my photographs on an amazing display without compromise all the carrying a digital notebook for language class.

    • Asgard

      Surface pro 3 is the ultimate choice for working. Its portable, having all power you will ever need.

      • Malcolm Williams

        Wasn’t this the goal of the surface pro 1 and 2?

    • Ruufus

      Portable
      800g
      9.1mm
      “i7, 512 gb ssd, and 8 gb of ram”
      Great screen
      Amazing engineering and craftsmanship
      Adjustable kickstand
      Oh yeah… Portable
      Yes, they should include the keyboard (or a basic keyboard with available upgrade keyboard just pay the difference).

      • Malcolm Williams

        i7 512 gb ssd and 8 gb of ram can be found at 1/3 of the price from multiple oems as well as the great screen.

        That still doesn’t explain any purpose of the surface

        • Ryu

          Comparable ultrabooks with the same specifications cost the same or more.

          If you are talking about comparing the SP3 to chunky and ugly laptops, then you are just stupid for comparing those. If you want a large laptop with better performance, buy one. Do not complain here about the fact the the SP3 is not just like those because it is not even meant to be.

          • Malcolm Williams

            Why am I stupid? it’s the most realistic comparison anyone can make given the specs and price point.

            Perhaps you’re the stupid one by not comparing that

    • sin isfree

      Because it is a Surface Pro 3.
      there are a lot of better buy instead of MacBook air. but hey lots still bought it.

      • Malcolm Williams

        No one even mentioned the MBA. hardware for hardware, what’s the major deal about the surface pro 3

    • kevgallacher

      You could argue the same about an iPad. Why spend all that money when you can buy a decent laptop for the same price.you are paying for the form factor. Obviously an iPad is designed to be more portable and has a touchscreen. It’s the same as the surface pro 3. It is designed to be used as a tablet but has the power of an ultrabook. Trust me if you have owned an Surface Pro, you’d see the value in it. This device can replace your desktop, laptop and ipad all in one device.

      • Malcolm Williams

        But I’m also not arguing about an ipad. I’m trying to see how the surface pro can still manage into a workflow when trying to wedge itself between a tablet and a pc without offering a keyboard, more ram and an external gpu at that price…it’s sad that the fact that Microsoft has to make a comparison between an ipad which is still far more portable and has penetrated the market higher than anything Microsoft has tried to offer.

        • kevgallacher

          They are really comparing it to a MacBook air.
          I wasn’t comparing it to an iPad, I was just using that as an example of a product that is quite expensive for its capabilities but it is the form factor you are paying for.
          The high end surface pro is quite expensive but that isn’t for the average consumer. Most people will probably be after the 256gb i5 model and the lowest model is reasonably priced. As I said if you owned a surface pro you would realise how good this new
          model is going to be and it’s quite easy to justify the price. To be honest you don’t really need the type cover (which I would say is overpriced) the surface functions perfectly fine without it.
          If you really need a keyboard you can plug any USB one in and it works fine.

          • Malcolm Williams

            I have and still owned both surface pros. And to be quite honest, they suck. The typing is the most uncomfortable experience I ever had. The cameras suck, Windows 8 / 8.1 still has issues with scaling apps, the list goes on and on.

            I absolutely abhorred both experiences on the surface pro series. The fact is that maybe the issues wouldn’t be so glaring if Microsoft didn’t try to tackle so much. It truly tries to master all trades and perform pretty miserably in some way, shape or form.

            I like my laptop right now; even if it is the first laptop without a touch screen. I much prefer that versus a touch screen. And if I want a touch screen, 8 inches may be the sweet spot. So maybe lenovo could be the tablet that brings me back.

            But right now, surface is not my cup of tea

          • kevgallacher

            Each to their own I guess. But I really like the Surface Pro.
            I haven’t used my laptop since, the surface does everything I could on the laptop. The only issues I have are battery life, the screen being a tad too small for real work and the gaming performance being a little weak but it looks like all that is fixed now. I don’t really care for the camera but then I don’t have much need for a camera on it, I would just use my phone. I’m not sure what scaling issues you mean, the apps all look fine to me. The desktop is fine once you get the settings right.

      There is no great reason unless you want a heavy tablet that is a poor laptop and feel like you can not live without the full “Window” experience.

  • Tirinti

    Have they already sold out a first batch of Surface? (the first one).

  • sin isfree

    wont be available in my country :( , so iPad air it is.

  • kevgallacher

    If you preorder do they take all the money straight away. I want to get one but really don’t want to spend that money while waiting till end of August to get it. I’d rather spend the cash the week it comes out.

    I think I am the first to get it in India specially.
