Microsoft Book UK Update: Surface Book Price, Release Date, Pre-Order Details Are Out
Microsoft has marked its re-entry with Windows 10. Even though the operating system got popular in no time, Microsoft took it very slow. The company has been aggressive when it comes to giving Windows 10 upgrade on desktops, but it is not that aggressively pushing its latest Windows 10 devices, the Microsoft Book, Lumia 950 or the Lumia 950 XL.Advertisement
