According to the news, that model will be available as early as next month with pre-order starting 'soon.' Not to mention the price is just a few hundred higher than the original with increased battery life and performance improvements.
If Amazon isn't enough of a discount for you, don't forget that Microsoft is accepting your MacBook Pro and Air devices for a trade-in value of up to $650 towards your purchase of a Surface Book. One thing is certain, those shiny new Surface accessories make owning a Surface Book more appealing than ever.
