Giblets: Microsoft’s Surface Pro will be coming to SA

Microsoft SA managing director Mteto Nyati yesterday tweeted that the company will be launching Surface Pro locally in the second half of 2013, which is around June/July. Pricing and availability details aren’t available yet and Microsoft will have a tough challenge eking out a profit where others like Dell and Gigabyte have already begun to steal the limelight, especially since they don’t run on ARM chips but are on Intel’s Atom Z-series and Core i3 mobile chips. Surface Pro is powered by Intel’s Core i5-3317U dual-core at 1.7GHz, uses either 64 or 128GB of storage, peaks out at 4GB of RAm and has been rated by iFixit with a score of 1/10 in terms of repairability. In the US, the 128GB Surface Pro retails for $1050.
