With $2799, with student discount of $280, the device will cost $2519. The saving not that much compare to the pre-order price if got student discount.

firstly, not all of us are students...

secondly, student discount announced le meh?

well limiting the pre-order prices it to just 1 weekend and adjusting upwards now when there's still 1 month to go is a stupid move imho, cos people will be disincentived to make any orders from now till 19 November 2015, and more incentived to just wait and see if there may be more bundles or offers by other players later on like Best Denki or Gain City, who were not in this round's pre order.

and i think most people are also waiting for competitors to come up with alternatives to surface pro 4, tablets with keyboard docks/cover that runs on i5 i7, which should come soon, with hopefully more usb ports, usb C, full size sd and more configurations.

while the surface pen is an interesting proposition, most other brands also has their own stylus. As much as the staffpad demo is super amazing, it is just a program that can be installed on any other Windows tablet and works just as well with any other stylus.

i shall just wait till next PC show which should be in late November / early December based on past year schedules.

it means pay 60 for nothing, or for less things... cos the pre-order prices before the price increase already has this free gift sleeve, PLUS retailer's own free gift like:
Challenger has 1tb hdd;
Courts has action camera & soccer match tickets

Now paying higher prices means paying more for less stuff, so if you pre-order from now onwards, it is stupid... might as well just wait until it is released and see if got other bundles anot...

For those order i5 models from Challenger, I think the collection is on 26 Oct, same time as US. My friend pre-order at Challenger for i5 model, and was told that can collect on 19 Oct.

Not sure if it true or not.

Challenger up price lol
I don't understand this price increase...is it because pre-orders drying up?

Don't quite get it also, I think its a local ms branch decision. Asked the cso on the canadian site cos intending to get mine from there, they're keeping prices. No boutique, zero local marketing and then raise prices even before its out. I see a local flop in the works.

Why not..

It was clearly stated as special pre order price already and it is valid till 18 Oct..
I mentioned this in previous posts but other bros said MS will not raise the price..

Really unexpected as I had believed that MS would follow international pricing. Can turn alot of users off. The pre order pricing is already overpriced and now they want chut this pattern again. Zzz
