Now might be the best time to pick up a new Surface Book if you've been waiting in the wings. The notebook has seen some pretty substantial discounts on select models on not only the US Microsoft Store, but also in the UK and Australia (via TechRadar).

Surface Book sees hefty discounts in the UK, US and Australia

What kind of discounts are we talking about? Well, right now, you can pick up the entry-level 128GB Intel Core i5 Surface Book for $1,299 at the U.S. Microsoft Store — a $200 discount. For those in the UK, the same model is down to £999 from its usual £1,299 price tag.

Australian buyers can take advantage of some cuts on higher-end models, with the 256GB Core i7 model with 8GB of RAM seeing a drop from $3,299 to $2,804. Likewise, the 16GB/512GB model has moved from $4,199 down to $3,569 while the top-end 16GB/1TB model has dropped to $4,206 from $4,949.00.

True, price cuts like these could indicate something newer is on the horizon. But no matter how you slice it, those are some pretty solid discounts — especially if you live in the Land Down Under. Be sure to hit up the Microsoft Store in your region to check out all of the deals, and let us know in the comments if you'll be picking one up.
