Today at its May 2nd Event, Microsoft officially announced the Surface Laptop – you can find out more about it here. Yes, it is a device from Microsoft but it is not U.S.-only! According to a spokesperson, the Surface Laptop will be available today for pre-order in 20 countries including the U.S., United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and more. While the Intel Core i5 variant of the laptop will start shipping on June 15 in these 20 countries, the Core i7 variant will take a bit longer. According to my sources it will start shipping on August 15.
The Surface Laptop is available in 4 awesome colors but only the Platinum variant is leaving the U.S. and is coming to the 19 other countries. Nevertheless it is nice to see that Microsoft is finally learning to bring products not just to the U.S. but to the entire world.
