Microsoft is rolling out its first Windows-powered Chromebooks to customers this month, but it’s not for sale.
The new Chromebooks will be sold exclusively through Microsoft Stores, according to a Microsoft spokesperson.
The company is calling them the “Windows Store Chromebooks,” though the official description of the machines makes no mention of the Windows Store at all.
Instead, the company is offering customers the chance to pick up the Chromebooks at its own retail stores, Microsoft’s official blog said on Tuesday.
The new Chromebook will have a similar design to its Windows-based sibling, the Chromebook Pixel.
It will be available in black or silver, with black or white accents, Microsoft said.
The company has also announced that customers who preorder the Chromebook will get two free Chromebooks and two free Xbox Ones.
The deals expire at midnight on April 8, the blog said.
Microsoft is selling Chromebooks through its own Windows Store, and is not using any third-party stores to sell them, the spokesperson said.
The deal with Amazon also includes a coupon code for a free Surface Book if customers buy the Chromebook at an Amazon outlet.
Microsoft has previously said it will offer the new Chromebook at select retailers and through its online store, and Microsoft is launching a Windows 10 laptop and a Surface Book with the new devices.
It is also making an Xbox One that will be the only way to buy a Windows device on the new platform.
