Microsoft is today opening up pre-orders for the Surface Book 15-inch variant in more markets. The company initially launched the Surface Book 2 13-inch in a handful of countries, but the larger and more powerful 15-inch variant was only available in the United States.
Pre-orders for the 15-inch Surface Book 2, powered by the GTX 1060, begin in 17 new markets today — this includes the United Kingdom, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Sweden, and Switzerland.
In addition to bringing the 15-inch to new market, Microsoft will be rolling out both the 15-inch and the 13-inch variant of the Surface Book 2 to more countries over the next 2 months — including Bahrain, China, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Korea, Kuwait, Malaysia, Oman, Portugal, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates.
Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 has been a hit amongst fans and critics. The device–like many other Surface devices–isn’t cheap, with the 15-inch variant coming in at $2,499.
Pre-orders are yet to open for the 15-inch Surface Book 2 in the UK, so I will be curious to see how much the device costs here — but going by recent pricing trends after Brexit, the device will likely start at £2,499. It starts at £2,349 in the UK, not too bad.
