Microsoft unveiled their Surface lineup of laptops a month ago, but there was no word as to when they will be available for Indian consumers. That changes today!
Microsoft announced that the Surface Laptop 5 and Surface Pro 9 are now available Indian users for pre-order via Amazon.in, Croma, Vijay Sales, Reliance Digital, and select multi-brand stores.
The company did not mention the Surface Studio 2+ which was launched last month with the new surface lineup.
The sales will begin on 29th November.
Users who purchase the Surface Pro 9 will get a black Surface Pro Keyboard worth ₹14,999 for free, while those opting for Surface Laptop 5 will fetch them a Surface poppy red Arc Mouse worth ₹7,499.
Irina Ghose, Chief Operating Officer, Microsoft India, said, “We are pleased to bring the new Surface devices to India, expanding our portfolio for Windows 11. With Windows 11, new Surface products, apps and experiences, today we take the next step on our journey.”
