Great things are happening for the Microsoft Surface Pro. Microsoft announced expansion of their distribution via an authorized reseller channel.
The new two-tier reseller channel mirrors the older 1980s and 90s style of computer distribution: “the two-tier program establishes Ingram Micro Inc., SYNNEX Corp. and Tech Data Corp. as inaugural device-authorized distributors to sell Surface to a newly designated group of device-authorized commercial resellers. Today, these resellers include CDW, CompuCom Systems Inc., En Pointe Technologies, Insight Enterprises Inc., PC Connection Inc., PCM Inc., SHI International Corp., Softchoice, Softmart and Zones Inc. ”
Additionally, bloggers have noticed the 256 GB Microsoft Surface Pro is in limited availability in the United States by some of the above resellers. Besides the storage change, no other hardware changes have been made to the computers.
