Microsoft's US Store website now sold out of the 64 GB Surface Pro [Update: They're back]

If you were hoping that you might get your hands on a Surface Pro tablet today by ordering it from the Microsoft Store website but didn't pull the trigger yet, you are officially out of luck if you live in the US. Both the 64 GB and the 128 GB versions of Microsoft's newest tablet are now listed as "Out of Stock".

The 128 GB model was the first to sell out, but it still took only 16 hours for the 64 GB model to become unavailable to purchase as well.  If you live in Canada, both models are still available from their Microsoft Store website; Staples.com is now showing both models are out of stock.

The Best Buy website in the US shows both versions of the Surface Pro as being available, but not for online shipments. The same is true for the Best Buy Canada website. The web site for Future Shop in Canada shows both version as not available for shipment online and only the 64 GB version as being reservable in stores.

Update : Look's like Microsoft found a few extra units; the site now shows the 64 GB version in stock again.

Yeah, these are likely returns. Poor product.

Oh wow, I'm sure your very informed opinion is a result of spending plenty of time with the device and actually using it. Troll.

I personally love my Surface Pro 64 that I got yesterday. Good to see Microsoft having more in stock.

I find the fact that it's already back in stock a little sketchy. It looks like they just artificially limited the number of units for sale so it would make the headlines. A lot of major news outlets reported "Surface Pro Sold Out!", but that's not really the case if they still have more for sale.

You are so correct. I think MS has many more of these and is just holding back the supply. There are probably many more 128g units but MS is holding these back trying to force people to buy the 64g because the 128g is out of stock. MS should abandon the 64g, I would not even consider it. If the 128g is not available for much longer I am going to spend my money on an Asus Taichi. It is a little more cash but if you add in the keyboard cover to the Surface Pro the price difference is not that much.
I find it very amusing that today (sunday) morning the Best Buy web site has the surface pro on the front page to buy, yet they don't have any.

If you want one every store in my town staples and bestbuy have plenty in stock I just checked with my best buy and the guy at first had no idea what a surface pro was. Then another person told me they only sold a few and they have a lot . Looks like its only selling at stores Microsoft is talking about.

That guy who works at Best Buy and has no idea what a Surface Pro is should be fired right away.

Or possibly Best Buy should be better training its employees.

So what town do you live in, so some reason I think you FOS so I want to call the store in your town just so I can either give you kudos or call you out for being a troll. So, what town is that and which best buy did you go to?

Mine already shipped! Glad I ordered it right after midnight.

Me too, ordered my at 1am Eastern time, I was going to wait til morning but decided otherwise...Glad I did, mine has shipped also

Based on demand for the product (which if you care to look past the screen of windows 8 hate is obvious), i cant see MS only making a small number to start with. I can see them holding back stock (classic sales trick of 'OMG its sold out, I'll blog it" to generate hype) but even then I'd be inclined to think that numbers are still big.

The first logical question here is: How many were available in the first place? I mean, if they only had 500 in stock, then 16 hours is a long time, but if they had 50,000 in stock, then it's great news.

Context is everything.

I get your point, but I also feel that the low figure you mention (I understand its to illustrate a point) is ridiculous. Putting it in there just invalidates the whole lot for me.

You're being pedantic to distract from the issue, I clearly wasn't using realistic numbers. As far as I'm concerned, it's a legitimate point. Every time Apple sells out of something, the haters march on here claiming "they're artificially restricting stock, inflating their figures, rabble rabble rabble". Why should we just assume that this is great news, rather than a low stock issue like the Nexus 4 debacle?

I'm sorry, it was quite pedantic you're correct, and i did actually make a similar point below but i just felt the comment was highly weighted with the '500' figure. To be clear I'd consider the same point but directed at apple invalid as well, for the same pedantic reason
