I heard they will open store in singapore early next year. Although it may not be 100% correct but I highly believe it is

Any further delay in launching by google and Microsoft in more markets for n10 and surface will impact success in acquiring market share.

even if they open in singapore the price will be much more expensive than US

of course it would be more expensive if you were to go to US and buy it. but if you imported it from the US and ship it over here to singapore, surface RT is already costing >900SGD, including tax and shipping fee. i highly doubt that if a store were to be set up in singapore, it would cost more than 900 for an RT. i guess it should be around, high 700SGD to low 800SGD, for a 499USD version.

but talking about running these applications...
i'm a little apprehensive, as we all know autocad/photoshops can be pretty resource intensive even on desktops.

even my lousy i5 ultrabook had problem when coding or running emulators on the default 2gb ram with some other background applications. it was already running at 90+ %. in the end i upgraded the ram to 8gb and everything was smooth.

so if the pro comes as announced at 4gb, that may not be enough or maybe JUST only.
you should be aware that changing ram modules is as easy as 123 right? ^^

of course i'm aware. LOL
i've changed RAMs for my own desktop and laptops.

as surface is pretty new and I've not touched it or seen the disassembled surface yet...i'm not sure how easily it's to swap the ram. plus, the surface is quite compactly built.

quite true.... have any website managed to open up the surface RT? the ram may be onboard. or no way to expand the RAM....

You really think that changing the ram on the Surface is going to be as easy as 123?

Do the math, mate... I paid 910 for the 64gb version with cover, shipping and tax.
Of course the naked 499 version would be cheaper.

Don't think MS has international warranty.
