Microsoft Surface Laptop review

 

Great keyboard ; High contrast, color accurate display ; Alcantara fabric feels wonderful ; Solid processor performance

Windows 10 S restricts app selection ; Needs more ports ; Disappointing hard drive

We believed, given its past successes, that a Surface Laptop would be an easy win for Microsoft. Compared to the Pro, Book, or Studio, it’s a simple machine. Yet the company found a way to complicate matters with Windows 10 S, and fails to deliver in...

Microsoft Surface Laptop

 

Microsoft's Surface Laptop with Windows 10 S is aimed at students looking for a sleek alternative to the aging Apple MacBook Air. It's stylish and powerful, but you'll want to nab the free Windows 10 Pro upgrade while you can.

Light and thin body. Comfortable keyboard and palm rest. Long battery life.

Limited port selection. Installed OS is locked to Windows Store apps. Windows 10 Pro is a paid upgrade after promotional period. Surface Pen not included.

Meanwhile, the Core i7-powered version of the New Razer Blade Stealth remains our Editors' Choice for midrange ultraportables for its faster performance and wealth of features, all for $300 less than our upgraded Surface Laptop.

Microsoft Surface Laptop with Windows 10 Pro review

 

I feel like I always start a Surface review the same way, so here goes: I've always wanted Microsoft to build a laptop. A couple of years ago, Microsoft nearly did that with the Surface Book but it...

Free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro ; Great balance of power and thinness ; Beautiful touchscreen

Few apps on Windows 10 S ; Alcantara fabric requires care and maintenance ; No SD card slot or USB-C

Microsoft's latest PC feels like more laptop, less Surface

 

The more conservative design of the latest Surface makes it a surprisingly strong entry in the slim, high-end laptop game.

The Surface Laptop has a slim, modern design and comes in a selection of cool colors. Battery life is very good, and the keyboard and touchpad are both excellent.

The included Windows 10 S operating system can only install preapproved apps by default (but it's upgradable). The long-term life of the fabric covering remains a question. The cooler colors are only available in more expensive configurations, and the...

While it doesn't necessarily stand out in a crowded field, the Surface Laptop has a great design and is a solid, travel-friendly clamshell PC.

Microsoft Surface Laptop (i5-7200U) Review

 

All screen and no substance. The new Surface Laptop sounds and looks more special than it really is. While the unique 3:2 touchscreen is bright, crisp, and colorful for graphic artists, almost everything else fails to impress.

very accurate colors and grayscale before calibration ; bright display backlight; excellent black levels ; excellent construction quality; rigid design ; nearly full sRGB coverage ; unique Alcantara texture ; above average speakers ; Windows Hello...

no USB type-C, Thunderbolt 3, SIM, SD reader, Kensington Lock, or fingerprint reader ; bottom of base can become very warm under heavy processing load ; chassis reverberates noticeably during audio playback ; weak integrated HD Graphics 620 performance...

Microsoft advertises the Surface Laptop as "more than a traditional laptop", but our experience has been the opposite. If features like USB Type-C, SD card readers, and NVMe are important, then current flagship Ultrabooks from Lenovo, HP, and Dell pack...

Microsoft Surface Laptop

 

Microsoft's recent hardware efforts prove two things. First, Windows devices can be built without compromise. Second, that Apple isn't the only company that can meld hardware and software together in harmony.

Microsoft Surface Laptop review

 

A carpeted Chromebook-alike that impresses in almost every way

Fab design ; Windows 10 S works well ; Great battery life

Keyboard is a bit wobbly ; Lack of ports

Microsoft’s first ever laptop is an ultra-portable stunner

Hands on: Microsoft Surface Earbuds review

 

Microsoft stunned us all at its October 2019 event keynote with the unveiling of the Surface Earbuds, the follow-up to the Surface Headphones and its answer to Apple's market dominating AirPods. The Windows company's attempt on true wireless earbuds is...

Excellent fit Impressive audio performance Solid touch controls Neat translation feature

Kind of big Design is a bit bombastic Not as portable as competitors

Microsoft's Surface Earbuds are larger, longer lasting and come with more robust features than Apple's AirPods. Yet, they're also pricier and stick out like a sore thumb in comparison to AirPods, making this a tough call so early in the game.
