Originally published on 21 January 2018:

Your wishes have been answered. In a blog post today, Microsoft announced that it would be rolling out the Surface Book 2 to all markets where Surface devices are already available, including Singapore.

The Surface Book 2 is Microsoft’s most powerful Surface machine, and it’s often considered alongside the MacBook Pro by content creators looking for a portable system. The laptop is powered by the latest 8th-generation Intel processors and up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 discrete graphics card, a far cry from something like the Surface Laptop.

It’s also versatile, and the base can be detached to let you use the device as a tablet.

Both 13- and 15-inch models will be made available, and pre-orders are starting today for the latter in select markets.

But beginning in February and continuing through March and April, both screen sizes will roll out to other markets, including Singapore.

That's quite a large time frame, but we've been told that the Surface Book 2 will arrive here sometime in March so you shouldn't have long to wait.

The Surface Laptop is arriving on our shores on 24 January as well, so local customers will finally have access to the full range of Microsoft's Surface devices.
