Microsoft originally announced the Surface range way back in 2012. However, South African missed out on the product ever since. Previously, if you wanted to buy a Microsoft Surface device in South Africa you would have to import it or tuck it away in your hand luggage after purchasing it overseas. Thankfully, for the first time ever, the range will launch in SA later this month. Microsoft shared the Surface Pro South African pricing and release date and its reasonable affordable (in comparison to other Apple notebooks).
Both the Microsft Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 will launch in South Africa later this month. The Pro 7 comes with the iconic 2-in-1 design with a powerful 10th-gen Intel Core processor, Fast Charging and all-day battery life. The Surface Laptop 3 will launch in two sizes including a 13.5-inch and 15-inch both featuring PixelSense Display touchscreen. In addition, they both promise 11.5 hours of battery life, Instant On and are powered by an AMD Ryzen Surface Edition processor.
As for the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 South African pricing and release date. The Pro 7 will start at R17,999 and the Laptop 3 at R22,999. Pricing will vary depending on the specs available in the model you purchase. The Microsoft Surface range launches in South Africa on 29 July 2020. The devices are available through Vodacom and Incredible Connection. Microsoft has yet to share contract prices as of yet.
The launch marks just two of the many Microsoft Surface devices on the market. The company has yet to announce whether or not South Africans will be able to purchase more in the future including the Surface Buds, Headphones, Go 2 or Surface Book 3. Microsoft offers an extensive range of devices. Hopefully, these two devices are just the start of the range arriving in SA.
