Here are the prices for the Surface Book in all its new markets

Surface Book, Microsoft's first laptop-like device, has been available in the US and Canada for quite a while, with the Performance Base model launched as of October last year. A couple of months later, the firm revealed that the latter version will be coming to eight new markets in the first quarter of 2017.

Since the firm just revealed the full list of markets it would open preorders of the Surface Book with Performance Base in, here is the pricing for each country.

Austria (Surface Book | Surface Book with Performance Base)

  • 512 GB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - € 3,019
  • 1 TB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - € 3,649

With the new model coming in, the regular Surface Book models received price cuts (valid until April 13, while supplies last):

  • 128 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB - 12,999 kr
  • 256 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB / dGPU - 16,499 kr

  • 1 TB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - 29,999 kr

Finland (Surface Book | Surface Book with Performance Base)

Along the same lines of Denmark's lineup, the Surface Book also can be purchased in only its lowest end variants:

  • 128 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB - € 1,699
  • 256 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB / dGPU - € 2,199

As above, the Performance Base models are all available:

  • 512 GB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - € 3,299

  • 512 GB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - € 3,019
  • 1 TB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - € 3,649

  • 512 GB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - € 3,019
  • 1 TB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - € 3,649

Rather bizarrely, the regular Surface Book variants have experienced no drop in price, but an asterisk at the bottom of the product page spells out that "this offer" (whatever that may be) is valid until April 2 at 23:59 CET:

  • 128 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB - € 1,649
  • 256 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB / dGPU - € 2,069

Hong Kong (Surface Book and Surface Book with Performance Base)

In this country, the lineup yet again suffers a slight change, as only the two highest end of the Performance Base models are available for purchase:

  • 512 GB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - HK$20,888
  • 1 TB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - HK$24,788

The regular Surface Book lineup is not complete either, with only the three models available in the country receiving price cuts:

  • 256 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB / dGPU - HK$13,388 (was HK$14,688)
  • 256 GB / Intel Core i7 - 8 GB / dGPU - HK$14,988 (was HK$16,288)

Unlike the offers above, these price cuts do not seem to have any deadline imposed. That said, upon purchasing the regular Surface Books, you get a Surface Arc Touch Mouse for free, and if you buy the Performance Base models, you get a Surface Dock free of charge. These offers are available while supplies last.

The regular Surface Books get a sort of price cut, with the top of the product page displaying "¥ 20,000 cash back". No word on the timeframe of availability, though:

  • 1 TB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - € 3,649

Mirroring the situation in Finland and Denmark, even though this is the first time the regular model has been available in the country, only the two lowest end variants can be purchased:

  • 128 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB - € 1,649
  • 256 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB / dGPU - € 2,069

Again, only the lowest end Core i5 versions of the regular Surface Book can be purchased, despite being the first time they've launched in the country:

  • 256 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB / dGPU - 19,999 kr

  • 512 GB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - 32,999 kr
  • 1 TB / Intel Core i7 - 16 GB / dGPU - 39,999 kr

As you might have guessed, only the Core i5 variants of the regular Surface Book are available, even if this is the first time they've been on sale in the country:

  • 128 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB - 16,999 kr
  • 256 GB / Intel Core i5 - 8 GB / dGPU - 21,999 kr

The original model of the Surface Book has been available in the UK before, and despite prices fluctuating, they have gone back to the value previous to the price hike. That said, Microsoft seems to be running two separate offers on these models:
