Microsoft's new Surface Pro will go on sale at the same time as the Surface Laptop and Surface Studio, which will be available in 13 new markets. That's great news if you're a Surface fanatic buying all three products. The Surface Pro is available for preorder starting today, so if you're interested you better get your order in now.
Surface Pro will be available in the following markets at launch:
- Hong Kong.
- New Zealand.
The new Surface Pro includes some capabilities its predecessor does not, including a new kickstand that can retract back to 165 degrees, laying almost completely flat. This is great for those who plan to use the Surface Dial on the display, because the new Surface Pro supports that same functionality found on the Surface Studio, so the user can place the Dial directly on the display for additional functionality.
The new Type Cover and Pens are also up for preorder in the same markets. It's also worth keeping in mind that if you own a Surface Pro 4 or Surface Pro 3, the new accessories will work with your device, too.

Welp, seems I have to save up some money again.
I still will use my HP touchpad!
Haha, I have one of those somewhere. Is the poor thing still usable?
Want type cover for my SP3
Can't find the pre-order....
When in India?! :3
Love the new hinge and includes LTE as well.. Slick video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwWs2jIy4js
Hi, I could not find the 'Japan' from '25 market' in microsoft press release. What happen? https://blogs.windows.com/devices/2017/05/23/meet-new-surface-pro/
Details are up on the AU Microsoft website and the i5 has max 8GB RAM. I'm really disappointed, the fanless i5 design sounds perfect for me but I need 16GB RAM.
Are there even any i5 powered 2 in 1's that have that much RAM?
I don't know if there are but I don't see that it matters because SP is a high end device and Microsoft likes to differentiate themselves from OEMs. Apple also offers a lot more 'mix & match' style configuration across their laptop range, and although not 2 in 1s they will no doubt be compared to SP.
Yeah, I was really hoping for an I5 with 16GB RAM and 512GB storage, although if they get their A's into G over placeholders for OneDrive then I could live with 256GB storage.
the on screen dial support is supposed to work on the surface book and the surface pro 4 also, not just the new surface pro. we'll see.
It works with them, just not on the screen
The screen tech is supposed to be the same in the sp4 and the SB as the new surface pro and the surface studio. We'll just have to see...
Finally with LTE that so many have asked for...but you better believe you'll have to pay a serious premium for it.
Can anyone explain to me which is the base model for the Surface? Core i5 or Core m3? And what's the difference between the two?
M is significantly lower than i5. Same goes for the iGPU. Battery life should be better though.
Oooh. So m3 is the new iteration of the core i3?
Come to Thailand, pleaseeee!
When in India ?
So is surface pro like "Surface 1 pro" or is it in the "School" category? Like i though it would be surface 5 or 5 pro
Except the near identical appearance, there are indeed lots of major improvements: even greater hinge angle, Surface Pen with tilt support, better battery life, type cover with very nice colour choices. Oh... and fanless design. It's more than just a slight refresh. Much better than I expected.
I have to upgrade my current Surface Pro 4 with this new one. It is not officially in Russia. So I have to go to another counrty. Anybody knows which country microsoft store offers are cheaper? US, Hong Kong?..
I will update my SP3 with this one and pass the SP3 to my wife, who is still happy with the SP2. Will wait for the LTE version though.
sub-$800 with no pen. interesting they don't see the pen as essential to the Surface experience any more
I Microsoft's conversation rates are crazy. Since when does $799 = £799.
