Microsoft releases 1TB version of the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4

The 1TB Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book will hit UK stores on June 30, but you can already pre-order your Surface device from Microsoft UK. The Surface Pro 4 tablet, powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and sporting 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD, has a price tag of  £2,199. The Surface Book is a bit more expensive and is priced at £2,649.

If you buy the new 1TB Surface Book, you’ll also get a free Maroo Leather Sleeve worth £44.95 to protect your new purchase from bumps and scratches. Buyers who pre-order the 1TB Surface Pro 4 will receive a £45 voucher instead. If you want to get the freebies, hurry up and pre-order your Surface now since only the first 250 clients qualify for them.

Pre-orders for both Surface devices are valid until June 30 at which point Microsoft will officially launch the two devices to the UK market.

Microsoft’s Surface Pro line is already more successful than Apple’s iPad Pro in the UK. The iPad Pro convertible tablet was purchased by 107,000 people, while Microsoft sold 275,000 Surface Pro devices in Q1. It seems that no matter what Apple does to surpass Microsoft’s Surface devices, it must settle for the second place.

As successful and popular as Microsoft’s Surface devices may be, we wonder if potential buyers will welcome the 1TB versions with the same enthusiasm. The 512 GB Surface Pro 4 has a price tag of £1,799.00, while Microsoft asks £2,199 for the 1TB device. The £400 may make the difference between buying and not buying for many people.

In its bid to continue stoking interest in its tablets, Microsoft recently introduced the Surface Membership program that lets businesses buy Surface devices and pay in cheap installments, with the option of upgrading their Surface more rapidly thanks to attractive discounts. Unfortunately for UK users, the program is only available in the US but chances are it could be brought to other markets as well.

The Microsoft Surface fleet remains one of its main revenue engines, and Microsoft is currently working on taking the Surface experience to the next level with the help of the upcoming Surface Pro 5 and Surface Book 2, both expected to be released in 2017.
