    Right?!
    I wanted to get the burgundy color with maxed out specs but I can't even do that, as I need powerful hardware and I would like a nice design and color to go with it.

    Hopefully Microsoft changes that in the soon future, they might be doing this to focus on what regular consumers buy which is the mid speced version... I'm not too sure but I wish Microsoft will fix this.
    It the mid spec I cruelly want but to limit the choice to jut the US is not acceptable I feel. Hopefully they change their mind before lunch.

    Other than it being a "Surface" why would someone chose this over something like the Dell XPS 13?
    Dell XPS 13 is a nice device. But it has no touch screen and I don't like its dark-based body colour. It's just not as sexy as Surface Laptop.

    There are quite many good looking Windows laptops these years but they still don't look as good as Surface Laptop. Just like the 2-in-1 clones - I still prefer SP4, which looks the best.

    If we don't care the look there are certainly many choices.

    Actually the XPS 13 may or may not have a touch screen they have different models. The non 2 in 1 models are mostly non touch but the most expensive one is touch screen and ALL the 2 in 1 models including the base 999 model are touch.

    There's room for all. I think healthy competition between Apple and Microsoft has brought some amazing devices. Do I hope Microsoft continues to be very successful with their innovative products? Yes yes I do.

    Yeah I'm totally keen to get one for the wife. She has a 2012 MBP. She's not that keen on mucking around in OS stuff so a simple windows 10S is great for her.

    dell xps series is nice. but to my bible study leader, majority of the windows devices just don't look as good as her macbook air.

    she knows pretty much jack about computers other than "look how pretty!". if i show her the surface laptop in burgundy and tell her it is estimated to last over 14 hours without having to be plugged in, well... I'm sure if she'd been in the market for a new computer, she would choose it over the xps.

    outside of these tech forums, I'm guessing there's plenty of people who make decisions on similar line of reasoning.

    i don't question those people nor do i necessarily condone/understand those lines of reasoning. it is what it is. to each their own.

    competition is good. mac and windows, and even chromeOS, each have their own pros and cons. look at what the competition is doing well, and learn from it. look at what the competition is not doing well, and find an opportunity to innovate there. ultimately, and hopefully, the consumer benefits from it.
