For those of you thinking about pre-ordering a unit, you might be wondering when it would be made available to you.
A chat with the store's online sales representative seems to point that if you pre-order a Surface Pro 3 now, it will be made available to you by end of June - this is the same time frame when the US and Cananda customers will be able to purchase a unit directly from the online store, Microsoft retail store and other participating outlets (20 June to be exact). Local retail availability in your favorite electronics stores is slated for end of August, and unfortunately, that's about when you can get your hands on the device even if you pre-order it. The only advantage of pre-ordering is to ensure you get a device when the first stock of shipment reaches our shores.
Important accessories like the optional Surface Pro Type Cover (black, red, cyan and purple) are each priced at S$183, while an extra Surface Pen will set you back S$73.
