WPDownUnder can confirm that following discussions with both Harvey Norman and JB Hifi stores today, that the Surface Pro SKU’s are now live in their systems and RRP pricing is confirmed.
MS Confirm 30th May local AU release date – pricing per our tip-off!
* * * *
128 GB Model = RRP of A$1099 (Base model typically would include pen, but no cover)
64 GB Model = RRP of A$999.
JB HiFi reported store orders having been placed (the store I visited had 13 on order) – but no ETA as yet (guestimate of inside 2 weeks). HN advised SKU’s live, but no stock orders placed as yet.
We can reasonably expect these RRP’s to be replicated on the MS Store AU site – if Surface RT price modelling is consistent. The US RRP’s are $899 and $999 respectively – so adding 10% GST respectively and MS are certainly leaving little on the table to hedge currency or other costs. Nice work.
MSAU when contacted prior to today’s information confirmed no comment on RRP or retailer availability
