The new Microsoft Surface Book was the surprise Dark Horse of the press event, garnering a great deal of media buzz immediately. It turns that media buzz translated into consumer interest as well. Every version of the new Surface Book is already sold out at Microsoft's online store.
Obviously it isn't too crazy to speculate that Microsoft probably built only a small number of these devices, so the fact that they sold out quickly may not be too surprising. Still, at a starting price point of $1,499, these puppies are not the most affordable devices on the planet. They definitely sit neatly into a "premium" product category.
Ultimately, we aren't too surprised by this. The Surface Book could be the perfect marriage between a full laptop and a tablet. Could Microsoft have "trumped" their own Surface Pro with the new Surface Book? At least in certain markets, that's entirely possible. Share your opinion.
