Update on Surface Pro Availability + Reservations

We wanted to provide another update today on availability for Surface Windows 8 Pro.

Starting right now, you can visit the online Microsoft Store (U.S.) and place an order for the 128GB Surface Pro that will ship within 2-3 weeks, based on incoming inventory. Once inventory is depleted, the system will show as “out of stock” until new inventory is available to ship.

We’ve also received a number of questions regarding making a reservation for a Surface Pro. We’d like to try and provide some clarification on how to go about making a reservation.

At Best Buy (U.S.):Inventory levels are increasing and many Best Buy stores have Surface Pro units for sale in store.  If the store does not have stock, you can reserve a Surface Pro (64GB and 128GB). Please note that Best Buy is only taking reservations in their stores for Surface Pro based on new inventory they know is coming in next week, so it’s possible that reservations could become “sold out”.

At Staples (U.S.):Many Staples stores have Surface Pro units for sale in stores.  If the store does not have stock, you can place a kiosk order in store to purchase Surface Pro 64GB for delivery.

For Canada:In Best Buy and Future Shop stores you can reserve the 64GB Surface Pro in stores at this time. Staples has availability online while inventory lasts and more inventory has been ordered to ensure store availability in the near future. More details to come on the 128GB Surface Pro availability in Canada.

We recommend you call your local store ahead of time prior to traveling.

We are excited by the demand for Surface Pro and continue to work around the clock to meet that demand with production and get new inventory into retail.
