Last month, we reported about how the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 could be pre-ordered on Lazada. Today, Microsoft Malaysia has officially launched the device here in Malaysia. As mentioned, there will be six different SKUs in Malaysia. Below is the breakdown:

Specifications Price (RM)
Core M / 128GB / 4GB RAM, with Pen 3,999
Core i5 / 128GB / 4GB RAM, with Pen 4,449
Core i5 / 256GB / 8GB RAM, with Pen 5,799
Core i7 / 256GB / 8GB RAM, with Pen 7,099
Core i7 / 256GB / 16GB RAM, with Pen 8,049
Core i7 / 512GB / 16GB RAM, with Pen  9,799

Regardless of which variant you purchase, each Surface Pro 4 will come with a silver Surface Pen. Here's a full list of accessories available for the Surface Pro 4:

Item Price
Type Cover (black, bright blue, blue) 529
Power Supply 36W (for variants other than the Core M variant) 319
Docking Station 789

All variants of the Surface Pro 4 have a 12.3-inch PixelSense Display that features a resolution of 2,736 x 1,824 at a density of 267 pixels per inch, and a 1300:1 contrast ratio with 100 percent sRGB color.

At 292.10 x 201.42 x 8.4 mm and 766g (Core M variant) the Surface Pro 4 is thinner and lighter than any prior Surface.

To showcase the capabilities of the Surface Pro 4, we were shown how two very talented individuals – Muhammad Fakhrul Akmal, a grafitti artist who goes by the nickname of Mile09, and Delwin Cheah, a young savant artist - used the Surface Pro 4 when drawing. Akmal sketches his design and uploads them to One Drive before actually painting, while Cheah uses the Surface Pro 4 as his primary sketching platform.
