NEWS: Surface for Windows 8 Pro… in-store reservations now available for February 9th!

Interested in a Surface for Windows 8 Pro?  (More info available here; also the datasheet is available here)

There’s going to be a line for folks looking to get one on launch day at the Microsoft Store & we’ll likely sell out again on day 1 just as we did with Surface for Windows RT… but you can reserve one and ensure you get one on launch day!

HOW?
Walk into your local Microsoft Store and request a reservation.  When you do, you’ll need to select what model you want to purchase ($899/64GB or $999/128GB SSD model) provide some contact information and all that (no credit card required) and they’ll give you a $0 receipt and a glossy reservation card. 

Below is the card from Century City:

You’ll notice the white box in the bottom right hand corner:  That’s where you place in line would go.  That’s because there’s only a limited number of reservations that they’re taking & each card in numbered.  When I say limited, the total number of reservations available isn’t something I’m allowed to post but it’s REALLY SMALL… so I’d get in there if I were you.

imageTHEN WHAT?
The day of the launch – Feburary 9th – come on in to the store (last time there was a requirement that you do so by 12 Noon; don’t know about this time) and you’ll be guaranteed a unit.  Even if they’ve sold out and are turning away customers, they’ll still have one reserved for you in the back.

WHAT ABOUT ONLINE?  (http://surface.microsoft.com)
If you recall, online orders for the $499 model of Surface for Windows RT sold out in one day.  And online orders have not been announced yet, so I’d get on this if you’re near a store.
