Surface BookPaul Thurott: “I’ve been asking for this product. You’ve been asking for this product. Hell, apparently everyonehas been asking for this product, based on the news I received last night that preorders for Surface Book are higher than for any previous Surface device.”

It’s nice to see Microsoft surprising people again. We had heard they would be introducing a couple new phones, which they did, and everyone expected them to introduce the Surface Pro 4, which they did, but the Surface Book was a complete surprise, it’s also a beautifully engineered piece of hardware.

Everyone at Microsoft should be extremely proud of their new entrant in the laptop market. Here’s hoping it sells like hot cakes. I have a feeling it’s going to be very popular.
