Surface Book

Microsoft has announced two new markets for immediate availability of the refreshed Surface Book, with more coming online soon.

Folks in Australia and New Zealand can now buy the Surface Book with Performance Base (and yes that's still a mouthful), with several more markets due to start getting them very soon. The details were posted by Microsoft on the Windows Blog earlier this morning.

Coming off strong momentum in the US and Canada, Surface Book with Performance Base is now available in Australia and New Zealand, and we're excited to announce we will make it available in more markets. Starting early next quarter, Surface Book with Performance Base will go on sale in Austria, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Switzerland and the UK.

The Performance Base makes a solid improvement to an already amazing laptop, though you can't just buy the base separately. It's still a tease for folks in Europe, but more global availability has been top of our list of questions since the new product was announced.

Prices start at $3,799 AU and go up from there, and they're ready to ship now. A perfect holiday treat!
