Microsoft Surface Pro 3 to launch in Australia with $979 entry price

Microsoft has announced its Surface Pro 3 will go on sale in Australia on 28 August from retailers and commercial resellers.

Prices for the new tablets will start at $979 for the 64GB Intel i3 model, increasing to $2,279 for the most expensive 512GB Intel i7 model.

Pre-orders are now possible via Microsoftstore.com, with the site stating that the product will ship by 28 August.

Retail channel partners include JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman. Commercial resellers previously announced last year at the launch of the Surface Pro include Brennan IT, Data#3, Ensyst, The Somerville Group, e-Volve Corporate Technology, Staples Australia, Triforce Australia, Computelec and Insight Enterprises.

Microsoft wants the device to be seen as a rival to the MacBook Air, with the Microsoft online store comparing a range of capabilities between the two devices.

The Surface Pro 3 has a larger 12-inch screen compared to the Surface Pro 2, as well as being lighter and thinner than the previous model.
