Surface Pro availability

Hey everyone! Just a quick question. I'm looking to pick up the Surface Pro on launch day. I'm going off to college in august so I decided that it would be the best choice for my needs as a student. I know the release date hasn't been released yet, but will it be available to pick up in other places besides the Microsoft store? I remember last time you were able to pre-order but it sold out fairly quickly and you couldn't really get it anywhere else. I'm predicting it would be available for pre-order again, but would you be able to pre-order it at another store besides the Microsoft store? Thanks!
