128GB Surface Pro now showing shipping in 3 weeks

Earlier this week on Twitter there was some update on the 128GB Surface Pro arriving at some local Best Buy stores and news about having the Surface Pro shipping to Staples and Microsoft stores. But if you tried to go and order online, you would be greeted with "Back Order". So you couldn't place an order even if you wanted. If you drove down to a Microsoft store you could Pre-Order the 128GB Surface Pro with no date of when it would arrived.

Now it looks like even though we had seen that the 128GB Surface Pro would arrive at local Microsoft stores on Saturday, we won't see it arrive until March 1, 2013. I did stop by and talked to the manager at the local Microsoft store today, he said that at this time, they didn't have any date for delivery at the store. He also said that if any 128GB Surface Pro should arrive Saturday, they will be going down the Pre-Order list. I had the chance to pick up a 128GB Surface Pro, but unfortunately I had some errands to do and never made it to the Microsoft store on Feb 9. I did stop by on Monday to place a Pre-Order for the 128GB Surface Pro but now as time has passed by, I'm not that eager to actually purchase it. I'm actually really liking the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T which is working very nicely. There is a few 64GB Surface Pro in-stock at my local Best Buy and Staples stores, so might pick one up to try it out. If I do find that it is the tablet for my needs, I will exchange it for the 128GB Surface Pro.
