Back in October, Microsoft introduced an improved version of the Surface Book: the Surface Book with Performance Base. For those unfamiliar, the new Surface Book with Performance Base comes with a new GPU, offers 30% more battery life than the original Surface Book, and it also sports a new thermal system. Thanks to the improved battery, users will get up to 16 hours of battery life. The Surface Book with Performance Base is also slightly thicker than the original Surface Book, because of the slightly improved internals.
As usual with Microsoft’s most Surface devices, the Surface Book with Performance Base was only available in the United States and Canada initially. However, the device is coming to more regions. Today, Microsoft announced that it’s bringing the device to customers in Australia and New Zealand. The Surface Book with Performance Base starts at AU$3,799.00 in Australia, while the device is priced at NZ$4,399.00 in New Zealand.
What’s more exciting is that Microsoft is bringing the device to 8 new countries early next quarter. To be exact, the device will be available in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, China, Japan, Switzerland, Hong Kong and Austria early next quarter.
