Microsoft has the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book pre-order pages up and running in the US version of the Online Microsoft Store. The units will be shipping as early as October 26th if you pre-order one now.
You can find links to the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book pre-order pages below:
- You can pre-order the Surface Pro 4 here: Surface Pro 4 Store Page
- You can pre-order the Surface Book here: Surface Book Store Page
In addition, the new pre-order pages also give us the pricing information for both devices. I dug into the customization options put together a pair of tables for your reference below.[divider]
Surface Pro 4 Pricing Table
Here’s pricing information for the different variations of the Surface Pro 4 you can order. The Surface Pen is included but, the Type Cover is an extra $129.00 just like it was with the SP3.
|$ 899.00||Core M||4GB||128GB|
Definately not a budget device. While the least expensive option is only $899 USD, it offers a reletively weak (but power eficient) Core M processor and 4GB of RAM. On the other hand, if you have $2700 burning a hole in your pocket you can get a very powerful i7 processor with 16GB of RAM and a whopping 1TB HD!!!
I also found the new dock for the SP4 (which is backwards compatible with the SP3) on the Microsoft site for $199 USD.
One thing’s for sure, Microsoft didn’t simplify the options with the Surface Pro 4. There are even more variations than the (already kind of confusing) Surface Pro 3.[divider]
Surface Book Pricing Table
Here’s pricing information for the different variations of the Surface Book you can order. Unlike the Surface Pro 4, at the time of this writing, there only seems to be a limited number of available configurations.
|$ 1,899.00||i5 w/ dGPU||8GB||256GB|
|$ 2,099.00||i7 w/ dGPU||8GB||256GB|
|$ 2,699.00||i7 w/ dGPU||16GB||512GB|
As you can see, the SP4 offers 9 different versions but there are only 5 versions of the Surface Book. In addition, there is currently no 1TB storage option for the Surface Book despite it being explicitly mentioned in the announcement earlier today. On the plus side, the price does include both the new Surface Pen and Keyboard, which is kind of nice.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to see if I can talk Joanna into letting me get the $2,699 version. Wish me luck……. I’m going to need it.
