    Just checking, has anyone seen or heard an update to when the Pro might be released in Europe?

    Last rumour I heard about a month ago was for "second quarter".
    The French MS site, which covers my location of Luxembourg (a Country in its own right, by the way!) still says "available soon", which could mean anything!

    Having had my hands on the RT in a local shop I am mightily impressed, but really need/want the Pro as I will be using it in business as well as for pleasure.

    Oh, I have had mine for a couple of weeks already, but I suppose I was one of the first, at least here in Sweden. I hope you get yours soon too! I have the 128 GB version, and I LOVE IT!!! It's the only computer I will need, so I'm selling my other laptop, sold my Nexus 7 and won't need my stationary either anymore! Wow is my impression, John!

    I gave up and imported. So glad I did, the Pro is amazing. Use mine as work PC, Laptop, tablet and very importantly a note pad with the stylus for my work and Studies. Doing My Accountancy finals, I I've got all my notes and textbooks in One place on Onenote 2013 and can make live inked notes wherever needed. Mistake of MS is marketing as an iPad, as a highly versatile laptop it truly shines.

    I found this on reddit:

    So the Surface [Pro] is not coming to Europe until around June, that's all I know for now.

    Source?

    I have a buddy who works at Microsoft and that's what he has heard, this was a while back though, so things may have changed.

    Sadly, that kinda makes sense;
    US: February > 2 months > China: April > 2 months > Europe: June


    When will we have Surface Pro?!!! : Surface

    I see that Amazon.co.uk are now offering the 64Gb Pro, marked as "in stock", for 779.99 UK Pounds and it is supplied by "Smart-Deals".

    No mention of the 128Gb version, which is the one that I would want.

    MS site for Fra/LU still says "coming soon".

    My only concern with imports is warranty coverage.
    I suspect that if it's imported from the United States it won't have a valid European warranty.

    Yes I think thats true. I should be ok as I have a 2 year warranty with Mobicity UK so they will fix/replace within that period but yes you would need to find a similar vendor in your country

    Yep

    I called MS France to check if the warranty for the Surface Pro was international like most of the competitor products, but they confirmed that this is not the case! For any repair/exchange, a Surface Pro bought in US or Canada has to be shipped back to a US or Canada address! That's weird for a big company like MS...

    So never move if you own a MS product! ;-)

    Also, a Surface Pro acquired in US or Canada is covered by a 1 year warranty vs. 2 years in France (probably Europe).

    Hope this helps

    Yes, indeed. Luxembourg, which comes under MS France/LU, has a legal minimum of two years warranty on all such items. So I definitely want to buy it here locally.

    I just want to do it before I retire in another ten years!

    I just hope it'll be released before June. Otherwise the semester is pretty much done and I don't really need it anymore until the next one starts in october. And then I might as well wait for Haswell. Considering Microsoft said it will be released in Europe in the second quarter of 2013, it could possibly be late June which sucks. =/
