Coveted Microsoft Surface Pro model surfaces again in stores
The 128GB model of the Surface Pro tablet is trickling into Microsoft stores again after quickly selling out earlier in the month.
Microsoft stores at Century City (Los Angeles, Calif.), Palo Alto, Calif., Boston (Prudential Center), and Huntington Station, N.Y., all had "limited stock" of the 128GB model, CNET confirmed today. Other stores, such as ones in New Jersey and Texas, didn't have the model this morning.
Representatives at two of the stores said that they couldn't guarantee availability at the end of the day due to the model's popularity.
The 128GB Surface Pro sold out immediately online and in short order at most Microsoft stores after it went on sale on February 9.
LA Microsoft Store not mobbed, but Surface has a following
"We're working with our retail partners who are currently out of stock of the 128GB Surface Pro to replenish supplies as quickly as possible," Panos Panay, who heads the Surface team at Microsoft, wrote on February 13.
And Microsoft later updated the status to say online orders would ship "within 2-3 weeks," which Microsoft indicated on its online store is March 1.
Update: The 128GB model is, as of Thursday afternoon, listed on Microsoft's online store as "out of stock" again, as Neowin reported.
