Singapore— March 31, 2015 — Microsoft Corp. is introducing a new Surface, the Surface 3. Like Surface Pro 3, it’s a tablet that can replace your laptop but is thinner, lighter and even more affordable. Powerful and efficient, Surface 3 is optimised to run full Windows and Office and features long battery life. The ability to run Windows apps and the versatile pen experience1 — great for taking notes or marking documents — make Surface 3 ideal for students, schools and anyone looking for a portable device to get things done. Starting at just a suggested retail price of S$748, Surface 3 packs performance and value into an elegant, lightweight design.
We’re down at the Red Dot Museum in Singapore where Microsoft is about to showcase their latest tablet-ultrabook hybrid, the Surface Pro 3, after giving the Surface Pro 2 a complete miss. It’s dubbed the tablet that can replace your laptop, and it’s a pretty good deal at roughly $1500 SGD for the i5 128GB version (plus type cover), and we can’t wait to get our hands on it over at the event.

It seems that the Surface Pro 2 will not be coming to Singapore at all. After the unveiling of the Surface Pro 3 (specs, pricing, and pre-order link here), Microsoft Singapore’s online store had been redesigned to feature only the RT-running Surface 2 and the newly-announced Surface Pro 3.
The Surface Pro 3 has been announced, and it’s up for pre-order on Microsoft Singapore’s online store right now. Seems like Microsoft is skipping bringing the Surface Pro 2 to Singapore altogether. So what exactly is new and how much does it cost?
