Microsoft's Surface 3 available in Malaysia from 9 May

Pre-orders are still going on for the device

Microsoft officially launched the Surface 3 Pro's little brother, the Surface 3 hybrid in Malaysia today. But if you fancied running to the nearest tech store for one, you won't succeed to do more than put down a preorder.

Fortunately Microsoft has made that easier by listing retailers where you can make pre-orders, some even offering them online. Preorder and you'll get a free skin but if you miss that, at least you can still score a free one-year Microsoft Office 365 subscription so long as you buy a Surface before Dec 31, 2015.

If you can wait, perhaps you can instead hold on until Windows 10 officially comes to the Surface 3, likely in July.

Here's the price list for the Surface 3 and related accessories.

  • Surface 3 (64GB, 2GB RAM):  RM1989
  • Surface 3 (128GB, 4GB RAM): RM2389
  • Surface 3 Type Cover: RM479
