Next-generation Microsoft Surface Pro now available in Singapore

Microsoft has announced that the new Surface Pro and accessories are now available for purchase in Singapore from the Microsoft Store, as well as authorised retailers including Best Denki, Challenger, Courts, Harvey Norman, and Newstead. Commercial customers can also purchase the new Surface Pro via authorised device resellers including AsiaPac Distribution, Insight Technology Solutions, JK Technology, SoftwareOne and UIC Asian Computer Services.

Unveiled in May, the new Surface Pro has been redesigned from the inside out to deliver more versatility and mobility in a lighter, more refined design. Everything has been streamlined — from softer, rounded edges to cameras built to fade into the bezel. At 8.5mm thin and starting at 767 grams1, the new Surface Pro packs the power of a 7th generation Intel Core processor into a new quiet fanless2 design, plus up to 13.5 hours of battery life3.

“With every release of the Surface Pro, we continue to push boundaries to better serve the needs of our customers who are seeking greater mobility and power in their devices in order to stay productive. The new Surface Pro delivers the versatility of a laptop and a creative studio in one thin, lightweight device,” said Veronica Chiu, Windows and Devices Group Lead, Microsoft Singapore.

The Surface Pro is not only a powerhouse laptop, but also a mobile creative studio with a high-resolution 12.3” PixelSense touch display that supports the new Surface Pen4. the fastest pen ever. Twice as accurate as the previous version. Inking in applications across Windows 10 and Microsoft Office 3654, including the new Microsoft Whiteboard app, will unlock ways for people to use digital ink to be more creative, collaborative and productive.

The new Surface Pro Signature Type Cover delivers a premium scissor mechanism and 1.3 mm of key travel for faster and more accurate typing. A full-size glass trackpad with five-finger multitouch capabilities allows for ultimate precision, and the entire keyboard is wrapped in soft, durable Alcantara material, creating a comfortable palm rest.

For commercial customers, the new Surface Pro will be available through more than 30 commercial resellers, as well as the Surface as a Service programme5. The latter is a new programme that helps customers benefit from a flexible and efficient scheme which centralises billing and servicing. Organisations that sign on with Surface as a Service will also benefit from periodic leased equipment refreshes, as well as end of lease term flexibility, where they can choose to return the device, keep the device, or extend the agreement.
