Microsoft's Surface Laptop 2 now comes in pink – but you can't have it.
Microsoft recently unveiled the Surface Laptop 2, its latest revision of the slimline PC Ultrabook. Equipped with 8th Gen Intel processors and other general hardware refinements, the low-key refresh keeps the device relevant going into 2019. And while the Surface Laptop 2 was announced in four color options, Chinese buyers have another finish on the way.
Chief Product Officer at Microsoft, Panos Panay, has taken to Twitter to detail a new "Blush" finish for Surface Laptop 2, putting a pink spin on its all-aluminum body. But sadly for those in the west, the new finish appears to be a regional exclusive.
Preorders for the Surface Laptop 2 in Blush are now live for China at JD.com (via The Verge). Store listings indicate this finish is limited to the midrange the Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256 GB model, retailing for￥9988 (around $1,450). You won't be able to buy it, but there are some pretty photos to look at.
For those in the U.S., the Surface Laptop 2 is set to release on October 16, starting at $1000.
