In the Surface Book, Microsoft finally delivered a tablet that can replace your laptop. Or is it a laptop that can replace your tablet? Whichever way you look at it, Microsoft is gearing up to bring its premium, kooky-hinged device to several more countries after launching it first in North America this past autumn. It just so happens the UK is one of these countries, with Surface Book pre-orders opening up today ahead of the official launch on February 18th.

Only Microsoft's online store has the Surface Book up for pre-order currently, though Currys / PC World is also expected to start fielding reservations at some point today. Prices start at £1,299 for the Core i5 model with Intel HD graphics, 8 gigs of RAM and 128GB SSD, maxing out at £2,249 for a Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD and dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GPU. Microsoft's "ultimate laptop" was never going to be cheap, of course, but if you have that kind of spare cash lying around after Christmas, one can now be yours, warts an' all.
