Sellouts after a high-end device’s launch is something consumers are familiar with, mostly when the brands ‘Apple’, ‘Google’ and ‘Samsung’ are involved. This time, the spotlight seems to have taken notice of Microsoft once again since shelves of its much-awaited Microsoft Surface Pro tablet are being swept by PC fans throughout the United States, true or not? That we don’t know, we’ll just let statistics speak the truth in the next few months.
Redmond-based software giant, Microsoft, is now taking pre orders of its yet-to-be-shipped 128 gigabyte Surface Pro model via its official online portal, on the other hand, supplies of its online and brick-and-mortar outlets alongside retail partners — Best Buy and Staples — are currently being replenished with 64 gigabyte Surface Pro tablets.
The 128 gigabyte Surface Pro is due for shipping in about two to three weeks time upon placing your order, it’s important to let you guys know that once pre orders of this upcoming batch are sold out, get ready for another round of availability guessing game since these wonderful slabs of Magnesium–er VaporMg are still selling like pancakes, that is not at all surprising, a lot of consumers have been holding out on their tablet purchases, ignoring the newly announced Apple iPad 4 and Samsung Nexus 10 in hopes of getting a taste of what the Ivy-bridge packing duo of Surface tablets have to offer.
Shelling out close to a thousand bucks on a supercharged tablet means people will be more than willing to pay for an extended warranty to make sure that their Windows 8-powered investments are safeguarded from their klutziness, water (spills) and shock-induced damage (drops) are covered by the Microsoft Complete Warranty package for up to two years, users can avail of this option upon checking out of the Microsoft Store — just add $99 to the device’s original price.
