Microsoft has increased the prices of its Surface Book laptop, essentially due to the value of the UK currency in the wake of Brexit.
The move was first reported by TechCrunch, after a reader spotted that the Surface Book has become the latest product to receive a post-Brexit price hike.
The lowest-spec Surface Book has seen its price put up to £1,449 from £1,299, while the 1TB model will now set you back a somewhat staggering £3,049, an increase of £400 compared to its previous to £2,649 price-tag, which even with currency changes seems excessive.
A Microsoft spokesperson told TechCrunch that the firm has been forced to adapt its pricing as a result of changes in the market.
"In response to a recent review we are adjusting the British pound prices of some of our hardware and consumer software in order to align to market dynamics," the spokesperson said.
They added that the price changes only affect products and services purchased by individuals or organisations without volume licensing contracts.
"For indirect sales where our products and services are sold through partners, final prices will continue to be determined by them."
Other products - such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 - do not appear to be affected, for now at least.
This isn't the first time Microsoft has raised prices since the UK voted to leave the European Union. Back in October, the firm announced that some of its enterprise products would see a price increase of up to 22 per cent as it "attempts to counteract the effect of the instabilities caused by the decision to leave the European Union."
Business software saw its pricing increase by 13 per cent, with cloud service pricing jumping by the aforementioned 22 per cent.
Earlier this week, speaker maker Sonos also announced that some products will see their prices increase by as much as 25 per cent.
