It’s taken a few years, but Microsoft has finally debuted the Surface Pro series in India, launching both the Surface Pro 4 and 3 at a launch event in Delhi. The tablets will be sold exclusively via Amazon for the first 6 months. The devices are currently up for pre-order and are set to be released on January 14.
The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 comes in 3 versions, with the basic Intel Core i5, 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD model priced at Rs 89990. The Intel Core i5, 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD unit can be bought in exchange of Rs 120990. Finally, the Intel Core i7, 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD variant costs Rs 144990.
The older Surface Pro 3 is a tad lighter on the pocket at Rs 73990 and features an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD memory. Unlike the Surface Pro 4, it doesn’t come bundled with the Surface Pen, which will have to be purchased separately at Rs 5990.
Interested shoppers will additionally have to buy the Type Cover keyboard independently for Rs 12490. Microsoft claims it’s improved both products significantly. It’s equipped the stylus with 1024 pressure points and an eraser button, in addition to reducing its latency.
