HWM (Malaysia) - - HOT SHOTS -

Last month, Mi­crosoft held a pre-order cam­paign for the new Surface Pro, which will be of­f­cially re­leased in Malaysia on Au­gust 1 , 2017. The pre-order for the de­vice, along with its ac­ces­sories – which in­clude the new Sig­na­ture Type Cover – was opened in mid-July via au­tho­rized re­tail­ers, as well as the of­f­cial Mi­crosoft store-in-store within Lazada.

The new Surface Pro comes with not only bet­ter per­for­mance than its pre­de­ces­sor, but also 0-per­cent bet­ter bat­tery life and less weight. ther im­prove­ments in­clude a new hinge that al­lows for more dex­ter­ity – along with stand­ing an­gles, a more sen­si­tive Surface Pen, sup­port for LTE Ad­vanced, and com­pat­i­bil­ity with the new Surface Dial ac­ces­sory.

First announced in May, the Surface Pro was ini­tially made avail­able in 2 mar­kets. Mi­crosoft saw t to drop the num­bers from the Pro de­vices to bet­ter in­te­grate the Surface Pro to the other prod­ucts in the Surface fam­ily. The move is also in­tended to lower expectations of sweep­ing im­prove­ments when­ever a new it­er­a­tion is announced.

The Surface Pro is avail­able in ve SKUs, start­ing with one that runs on Intel Core m3, all the way to one with an Intel Core i7 pro­ces­sor. Prices start at RM3,699, with Plat­inum, Bur­gundy and Cobalt Blue color op­tions for you to choose from. Op­tional ac­ces­sories in­clude the Surface Pro Type Cover, the Surface Pro Sig­na­ture Type Cover, the Surface Pen, and the Surface Arc Mouse.
