The Surface Book is probably the most exciting device that Microsoft has launched to date and it’s easy to see why just by looking at the spec sheet.
Also the first laptop in Microsoft’s history, the Surface Book sold quite well since its unveiling in October 2015, but it’s obviously not the top Surface model currently on the market in terms of usage. And a new statistics provided by AdDuplex provide us with a closer look at rankings.
Right now, the top Surface device running Windows 10 is the Surface Pro 3, with a share of 33.3 percent. Surprisingly, the SP3 hasn’t even launched with Windows 10 pre-installed, so it’s kind of unexpected to see it on the first place. On the other hand, it’s living proof that Microsoft has made a terrific job to upgrade devices to Windows 10.
Surface Pro 4, the second Windows 10-powered Surface
The Surface Pro 4 is the runner-up with 30.9 percent and this also shows that although they launched at the same time on October 6, 2015, the SP4 and the Surface Book can’t even compare in terms of sales.
The laptop has a share of just 3.6 percent and as AdDuplex notes, “the Surface Pro 4 outnumbers Surface Book almost 9-to-1.” But this was certainly something to be expected because of several reasons.
First of all, it’s the more limited availability of the Surface Book, as the laptop isn’t yet available in all countries across the world, so not everyone can buy one. Then, it’s the price of the device, as the top Surface Book costs nearly $3,200 with 1TB of storage space and a dedicated graphics card.
As far as Windows 10 desktop PC manufacturers are concerned, things are not really surprising here. HP leads the charge with 22.51 percent, followed by Dell with 12.42 percent and Lenovo with 11.05 percent. Microsoft has only 3.03 percent, more than Samsung and Sony which have 2.24 and 1.56 percent, respectively.
