As outlined in the announcement around 3 weeks ago, Microsoft and Tarsus will initially supply the Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro 7 models to South African channels. These include selected Microsoft Distribution Managed Partners (DMP) and limited retailers.

The first two models we are providing to our channel offer a blend of speed, style and versatility for notebook and tablet users looking for a Windows device with a high-quality finish and plenty of power under the hood.”
