Looking for a Burgundy or Cobalt Surface Pen? You’ll Need To Wait A Little Longer

Posted on July 12, 2017 by Brad Sams in Hardware with 5 Comments

If you have been looking to buy a new Surface pen that isn’t the vanilla silver to match your new Surface Laptop, you have been out of luck as the device has been out of stock since it was released. Having been asked several times about when the peripheral would become available, I pinged Microsoft for an answer.

The company says that pen won’t be available until later this summer but did not provide an exact timeline for its release. To be clear, you can buy the updated pen in silver but the more desirable color options are not currently available.

While I would argue that the pen is better suited for the Pro or the Book, I do know some who have the Laptop that are clamoring for a matching pen. If you have an older surface with a pen, that peripheral will work until the color matching version ships if you are dying to get your doodle-on.

Other than that, that’s about it for the Surface peripherals but maybe one day we can dream about getting a Surface Dial in burgundy too.
