    "Panos Panay, the man in charge with the Surface business at Microsoft, refuses to comment on a possible pre-order" Where did it say no pre-order?

    Ill stroll into a msoft store on Saturday, I suspect there will not be an issue.

    I did expect a preorder option though.

    It's a premium electronics device. I don't see it selling out anywhere fast.

    Agreed. I'm also sure I'll run into someone who doesn't even know it's the launch date.

    After RT lack of proper info on preorders and 920/ATT lack of proper info, I have to say I will never preorder again. I got both devices when promised but was a nightmare trying to get the right information from all involved. I'll wait for the mess to die down and pick one up.

    Or you could just snag a reservation card: Grab a reservation card for the Surface Pro to guarantee availability on February 9 | Windows Phone Central

    They will distribute 100 per store and you will be guaranteed a Surface Pro device before noon of launch day.

    Just went to my local Microsoft Store to get a reservation ticket. The guy that worked there didn't even know about it. He had to go ask another lady to get the information.

    My nearest MS store is 150 miles away and won't be open until March 9th. I am intrigued by the Surface Pro, but I don't like to buy stuff sight unseen, so I might wait until March (unless the reviews are stellar).
