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...

Microsoft has knocked £200 off the superb Surface Laptop 2

 

A wonderful machine for a wonderful price

Did you miss out on the Surface Laptop 2 when it was reduced before Christmas? I didn’t. No sooner had I finished writing up the £200 discount on the laptop, did I mysteriously find one in my basket and – two days later – arriving at my door. I’m...

Surface Laptop 2 release date: Everything you need to know about Microsoft's new laptop

 

The Surface Laptop 2 brings new processors to the party

Discounts are apparently possible for “eligible students, parents, teachers and members of the armed forces”. I’m not any of these things, so couldn’t check, but worth examining closely if you are.

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.
