Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 review: Small enhancements make a big difference

 

Little has changed with the Surface Laptop 2, but it's still a thrill to use.

New quad-core CPU is powerful, Much better SSD performance, The instant-on feature is now quicker, The black color option looks fantastic

No Type-C or Thunderbolt 3, No option for 4G LTE, Expensive

This is one of the most beautiful, enjoyable and expensive laptops around, but it has stiff competition.

Microsoft's amazing alternative to Apple's MacBook just got even better with the Surface Laptop 2

 

With the Surface Laptop 2, available now for a starting price of $999, Microsoft really didn't re-invent the wheel. I've been using it for a few days now, not enough for a full review, but enough to tell you that with this laptop, the good news is the...

The nicest, and truest, thing I can say about the Surface Laptop 2 is that it's just a joy to use. No gimmicks, no weird drawbacks. It's just a good laptop with a good keyboard and a good trackpad with good battery life that's a pleasure to use.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 review

 

A sleek, strong and silent sequel

Competitive power level, Lovely new black color scheme, Quieter keyboard, No more Windows 10 S Mode

No Thunderbolt 3 option, Too few ports for its size

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 2 is, from top to bottom, a worthy sequel to the original device. This new model vastly improves the laptop’s power profile and, while it doesn't include tangible design changes, it ultimately achieves the most pure Windows...

Another fully fledged premium Microsoft ultraportable to rival laptops from Dell, Asus and Apple

Stunning design ; Speedy performance ; Outstanding build quality ; Great touchscreen display

Tad pricey ; Limited ports ; Shorter battery life than original

Surface Laptop 2 review

 

Microsoft introduced its Surface Laptop in 2017. It's now released a second version, which is significantly improved on the inside but has the same, slim design.

Beautifully designed ; Great to type on ; Powerful

No USB-C ; Expensive

The Surface Laptop 2 is one of the very best Windows ultraportable laptops, but for our money the Dell XPS 13 offers a better all-round package.

Surface Laptop 2 review: Microsoft's sleeker answer to the MacBook Air

 

This slim, powerful machine is the finest example of what a Windows laptop should be. If only it came with USB-C

great keyboard, good trackpad, Alcantara, sleek design, USB-A port, great screen, great battery life, Windows Hello, powerful processor

no USB-C, no SD card reader, no fingerprint scanner, limited configuration options, Windows 10 Home not Pro, only Intel UHD 620

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 is arguably the finest example of what a Windows laptop should be. It is beautiful, simple, powerful and well made. It works better than most of the competition, from super quick startup to seamless all-in-one update...

Consumer review (currys.co.uk)

MICROSOFT Surface Laptop 2 13.5" Intel® Core™ i5 - 256 GB SSD, Platinum

 

Looks the business but not ideal for a consumer who wants reliability and speed

Absolute shocking performance against market competitors like a MacBook Pro.

Consumer review (currys.co.uk)

MICROSOFT Surface Laptop 2 13.5" Intel® Core™ i5 - 128 GB SSD, Platinum

 

The screen is gorgeous and great for working on, with plenty of power for work tasks

It's has little gaming potential, can handle some light casual gaming, or older games. The other thing is it only has one USB port and peripherals and accessories are really really expensive
