The new markets are Australia, Austria, China, France, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Users in these countries can now purchase the devices either online via Microsoft stores or from authorized resellers and participating partners.
Microsoft also plans to make the devices available in Germany and Japan “later this month,” as well as in the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Ireland, and Belgium during the summer.
The 1TB Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 have received positive reviews from users in the US and Canada since their release. Aside from the “amazing storage capacity,” the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 also come “with 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors, [and] 16 GB of RAM,” according to Dan Laycock, Senior Communications Manager at Surface. He further adds that Surface Book also includes the ”discrete NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics.”
The Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 are great for users who need to work efficiently wherever they go. Laycock writes, that
the devices are great for “videographers and photographers who want the capacity to capture hundreds of large image files every day and process them in real time, without having to go back to their studios,. . . [as well as for] engineers, designers and researchers who render large files and work with huge amounts of data who appreciate the ability to access what they need whether they're connected to a network or not, without being tied to a desk or office.
. . .People in a huge variety of fields – from legal to sales to medicine to digital art and music – who depend on a library of presentations, digital content, and image and video files relating to client projects who want truly instant access to all of these resources on job sites, in the air, and wherever else they may find themselves. This is where 1TB of SSD storage can be invaluable, giving these power users the peace of mind they want and need, that they can store everything on their device without sacrificing weight, performance and speed, or aesthetics.”
