Microsoft‘s first foray into laptops with the Surface Book is off to a promising start as the computers are already selling out online.
The range-topping model, which packs an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD, has shifted all of its pre-order stock in less than a week.
All four of the other hardware variants are still available to order ahead of the laptop’s US launch on October 26.
The Surface Book does for Windows 10 what the Nexus line does for Android, serving as a showcase device for the software’s capabilities.
Microsoft describes the machine as “the fastest 13-inch laptop ever made”, pound for pound, and claims that it is up to twice as quick as Apple’s latest Macbooks.
UK pricing and availability for the Surface Book is yet to be announced.
