Microsoft announced today that it is making Surface Laptop available in multiple colors in 20 new countries. Additionally, it is bringing the Core i7/Platinum version of Surface Laptop to Japan, Hong Kong, and Taiwan for the first time.

“If you’ve been holding out to purchase a Surface Laptop in Cobalt Blue, Burgundy, or Graphite Gold, Visit or your nearest Microsoft Store to learn about pre-orders and in-store availability in your country,” Microsoft’s Raphael Aquino Jose explains.

So you can now pre-order Surface Laptop in your choice of colors in the US, Canada, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherland, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, Taiwan, HK, China, Norway, Australia, and New Zealand.

Previously, the free upgrade period ended on December 31, 2017.
