Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is coming to Malaysia with a starting price of RM4,950

Following the reveal that took place last October, Microsoft recently announced that the Surface Pro 8 is now available for pre-order from authorized retailers in Malaysia. Originally announced to the world in September, consumers can choose to get the Windows 11 tablet in five different variants.

Here are their general specifications and prices:

RM4,950: Intel Core i5-1135G7 / 8 GB RAM / 128 GB SSD

RM5,250: Intel Core i5-1135G7 / 8 GB RAM / 256 GB SSD

RM6,490: Intel Core i5-1135G7 / 16 GB RAM / 256 GB SSD

RM8,750: Intel Core i7-1185G7 / 16 GB RAM / 512 GB SSD

Note that all Surface Pro 8s with 256GB of storage and above are Intel Evo Certified models. In terms of colorways, these Evo variants can only be had in a black colorway, while the non-Evo model is only available in platinum. Of the five variants, the Core i5 model with 16GB RAM and 256GB SSD is exclusive to Harvey Norman.
