Microsoft Surface Book is now available in several markets in Europe.

Customers from the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, France and Austria can now purchase the device through a number of retailers at varying prices based on their preferred specifications.

Dubbed as "the ultimate laptop," the Surface Book is priced in the United Kingdom between £1,299 (around $1,800) and £2,249 (around $3,200), with the higher price reserved for the laptop's Intel Core i7 model.

Apart from the Microsoft Store, customers can also purchase the device through other UK retailers such as John Lewis and Currys & PC World.

"Surface Book combines the 6th Generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and up to 16 GB of memory with optional discrete graphics for an unparalleled laptop experience," states Microsoft in the product's description.

Microsoft first launched the Surface Book in October last year, touting the powerhouse as being designed particularly for mobile consumers who seek "maximum performance."

According to the company, the Surface Book is designed to be capable of handling any task while keeping users and data protected through enterprise-level encryption from its built-in TPM chip. Other security features include BitLocker, Enterprise Data Protection, Trusted Boot and Windows Defender.

The 13.5-inch Microsoft Surface Book also comes with a 3,000 x 2,000 267 dpi PixelSense display that consumers can easily detach when they need to perform other tasks. These include using the device as a tablet or as a standard clipboard, which may be highly appealing to business-focused consumers.

Microsoft also claims the Surface Book has a battery life of up to 12 hours on a single charge. Other notable highlights include RAM options of 8 GB or 16 GB and storage options of 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB or 1 TB.

The Surface Book runs Windows 10 OS and offers the regular 30-day trial of Microsoft Office.

The device launched in North America a few weeks following the October unveiling, while other markets were left waiting for a wider release.

Early this year, Microsoft started accepting preorders in a number of other markets.

Last month, the company released the Surface Book in China, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia, and now it's further expanding the device's availability.

Customers from Germany, France and Austria can purchase the Surface Book from the Microsoft Store in their respective country, at prices that range from €1,649 to €2,919. In Switzerland, customers will find the device to be priced between CHF 1,699 and CHF 2,999.

Other retailers that listed the device in their stores include Very, Amazon, Selfridges and Harrods.
