We are still uncertain as to how popular the Microsoft Surface Pro is, because there have been stock issues for both storage sizes. We already knew that the 64GB model recently had a fresh batch of stock, now we have been informed that availability of the Surface Pro 128GB will happen soon.
The 128GB stock update will not happen right away as promised, but we can tell you that shipments will be imminent, well 2-3 weeks to be precise. This is sure to anger those who have been waiting to get this storage option since the Surface Pro’s release date. Does this mean that Microsoft is seriously having stock issues, and have not created this issue in the first place?
If we are to go on a 2-3 weeks basis then the Surface Pro 128GB ship date could either be March 1, or March 8 if you pre-order now. Microsoft says on their blog that their stock of the larger storage option is completely depleted; we have to wonder if this is anything to do with people going for the 128GB version because a recent review showed Windows 8 and the other installed software takes up a huge chunk of your storage space?
It seems if you want extra storage consumers are having to pay the price, as it seem that Microsoft is pushing us to go with an external option, seems like the Xbox all over again. The likes of Best Buy and Staples are also having these same stock issues, because when they manage to get new stock these will be used to fulfill orders that their customers have already made.
We’d love to know the reason why you are looking to get yousel a Microsoft Surface Pro, is it because of the pretty decent specs and the new form-factor or the price; having said that, surely reports of poor battery life will sway your decision?
