The sales pitch created by Microsoft, touting its Surface Book as the fastest, and thinnest PC on the planet seems to have worked wonders for the company. On its website, Microsoft announced that it has sold out the products’ pre-order supplies two weeks before its intended launch.
We’ve seen strong demand for Surface Book and have sold out of pre-order supply for October 26 availability. We will have limited quantities of Surface Book available in store on October 26 and will be updating online availability with new product ship dates soon,
the company stated.
The Surface Book runs on the Windows 10. It has a detachable keyboard, making it a laptop cum tablet hybrid. Microsoft opened its pre-order sales from October 7, in less than a week the company has exhausted the stock, thanks to the frenzy created around the device.
During the launch of the product, Microsoft claimed the Surface Book is twice as fast as Apple’s MacBook Pro, garnering immediate attention from the critics and consumers.
The laptop cum tablet is made out of magnesium and features a sleek design accompanied by unique fulcrum hinge along the spine which makes it stand out from the rest of the laptops.
The Surface Book can be yours after shelling out $1,499 to $2,699. The device has 3,000 by 2,000 -pixel display compacted in a 13.5 inch screen. Powering the device is the 6th Generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors. Microsoft boasts that the laptop can last up to 12 hours on a single charge, a claim that can be verified only after its physical presence in the hands of the users.
With Surface Book, Microsoft is introducing a new Windows 10 security feature called Windows Hello that uses facial recognition from the front-facing camera to authenticate log-in.
Microsoft has kept mum on the exact number of devices it is shipping out on October 26. It’s first ever laptop set to take on the Apple iPadPro in some ways, and quite rightly may be the most anticipated device of this year.
