Microsoft said Friday it will no longer sell laptops that feature a 15-inch screen and a thinner profile.
The company said it will begin replacing 15- and 17-inch laptops with larger and thinner models.
The decision was made after customers complained about the laptop’s performance, battery life and overall design, said Microsoft’s vice president of product management, Michael Geller.
The Surface Book is a new 15-incher for the company’s laptops and has been the best-selling laptop in the United States for months.
The Surface Pro 5 and Surface Pro 6 are the two pricier laptops.
Apple said last month it plans to stop selling laptops that have a 15.6-inch display.
Apple says it is also removing laptops with a 16:9 aspect ratio from its lineup, but the company said the move was not related to the 15-in screen.
Microsoft says the decision is “in the best interest of the enterprise, our customers, our team and the world.”
The company plans to keep a few laptops in stores and to sell its 15-and 17-inchers through retail stores.
The laptops will continue to be sold online through its retail partners.
