The crazy price of the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 in South Africa

Microsoft has not officially launched the Surface Pro 4 in South Africa, but online retailers Raru and Takealot have the device for sale.

The two online retailers list various configurations of the device, with prices ranging between R22,000 and R69,000.

A comparison against overseas prices will serve to confirm that local pricing may seem high.

Local importer Orange South Africa currently offers better prices than its competitors, but does not have the 1TB Surface Pro 4.

The table below summarises the prices of the Surface Pro 4 at Orange, Raru, Takealot, and the Microsoft US store. US pricing excludes international shipping, VAT, and other taxes.
