If you are looking to purchase a 1TB Surface Book, be prepared to call around as Microsoft is no longer offering on its website. Up until today, or possibly a few days ago as I’m not sure when the change was made, you were able to buy a top end Book with 1TB of solid state storage and 16 GB of RAM.
I had been checking the Surface site frequently and this particular SKU has been out of stock for some time. Seeing as the option is now removed from the order page, this suggests that it may never be coming back. If you are wanting that particular configuration, your best bet now is to call around to your local retailers to see if they have any in stock.
The optimistic side of me hopes that this is the start of the end for this line of devices and that we should be seeing a new Surface Book in the near future. Last I had heard, which was several months ago and means the plans could change, is that October was the target for refreshing the device; if that holds true, seeing inventory shortages is not all that surprising.
I’ve pinged Microsoft to see if they have any further details about the SKU removal.
Further, if you are still looking to buy a Surface Book, the company is cutting the entry level SKUs by $150 for the 128 and 256 Core i5 configurations.
Thanks for the tip Jeff
