Microsoft recently unveiled the Surface Laptop 2, its latest revision of the slimline PC Ultrabook. Equipped with 8th Gen Intel processors and other general hardware refinements, the low-key refresh keeps the device relevant going into 2019. And while the Surface Laptop 2 was announced in four color options, Chinese buyers have another finish on the way.
Chief Product Officer at Microsoft, Panos Panay, has taken to Twitter to detail a new "Blush" finish for Surface Laptop 2, putting a pink spin on its all-aluminum body. But sadly for those in the west, the new finish appears to be a regional exclusive.
Preorders for the Surface Laptop 2 in Blush are now live for China at JD.com (via The Verge). Store listings indicate this finish is limited to the midrange Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256 GB model, retailing for ￥9988 (around $1,450). You won't be able to buy it, but there are some pretty photos to look at.
For those in the U.S., the Surface Laptop 2 is set to release on October 16, starting at $1000.
