Probably once it's out can comgateway it to sg. I think it might be cheaper plus can get earlier than nov 19.

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
Yah really gotbetrayed....:-)

if you have this qn, u dunno what u wan... totally different league...

iPad runs on ios, so it is just a very highly speced and over priced iPad with an overpriced stylus. dun expect full office or multimedia functionality with ios which only run apps, not programs... a surface pro 4 runs a fullfledged windows 10, which can run full pc games, full ms office, the full Photoshop or other multimedia editor experience...

if u just wan an overpriced oversized iphone, save your money now n get the iPad pro...

I don't see how..

Take for example the i5 256GB model. USD$1,439.10 is SGD$1995.95 (Google), while SG store now is SGD$1999

Take into account CGW shipping, at least 20USD and 7% GST, I don't see how it will be cheaper. Not forgetting you have to use converter for the charger..

BTW, MS USA store also has *special price*
$1,439.10
(was $1,599.00) save $159.90
but not specified when it ends..

let me try to do my own calculation.

the i5/256GB/8GB is US$ 1299, with education discount is US$1169.1, S$1621.68 (Google). MS SG is S$1999.

You can use ebates or befrugal for an average cash back of 5% to offset the GST slightly and you pay about S$50 for shipping. I would say still cheaper and you can still throw in the type cover, maybe slightly over $2k.

Disclaimer: Just rough calculation done in wee hours

My bad, got the initial pricing wrong.

If you're using the educational, Ms sg is also expected to give this.. So 1.8k.

Anyway I feel that it's not worth the trouble of saving a bit of money and worrying about damaged packages and international warranty. And if you haven't already done the preorder, you probably will have to wait till November too.

For me, I'm just gonna wait since 19 Nov is during my exams I won't even have time to meddle with it.

Yeah! Not just the unboxing but suddenly all the reviews for Surface Pro 4 is out across various technology websites. Wondering if Microsoft set a date for the release of such review.
