Microsoft Surface Pro In Singapore

*UPDATE* On 30th August 2013, Microsoft announced a price reduction for Surface Pro. I have updated this post to reflect the new prices.

When Microsoft Surface RT was launched in Singapore [1] last month, many people have been asking when the Microsoft Surface Pro will be available in Singapore. And now, we got the answer straight from Microsoft Singapore.

Microsoft Surface Pro [2] with Windows 8 Pro will be launching in Singapore next Monday, 3rd June 2013. It will be available at selected Challenger, Harvey Norman and Newstead stores (see below) and will also be making an appearance at the PC Show 2013, which will be held at Singapore Expo from 6th to 9th June 2013.
