Surface Laptop 3 review (15-inch): Bigger, but not always better

 

The Surface Laptop 3 is a super-sized version of Microsoft's ultraportable, with a gorgeous 15-inch screen and powerful AMD hardware. It's impressive for a 3.4-pound machine, though it lags behind slightly heavier 15-inch notebooks when it comes to...

AMD’s hardware makes it a powerful ultraportable ; Clean and simple design ; Wonderful keyboard and trackpad ; Gorgeous screen

Only two ports ; Pricier and less powerful than other 15-inch laptops ; Shorter battery life than the Surface Laptop 2

Microsoft expands its 13-inch laptop into a prosaic 15-inch model with mostly business appeal.

 

Microsoft expands its 13-inch laptop into a prosaic 15-inch model with mostly business appeal.

Microsoft finally adds a USB-C connection to its Surface Laptop line. The 15-inch model Surface Laptop 3 offers easy opening for storage upgrades.

Meh battery life for its class, no Thunderbolt 3 support and minimal connections.

The 15-inch model of the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 offers solid performance and a nice design as an everyday thin-and-light business laptop.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (15-Inch)

 

With a large 3:2 screen, a comfortable touchpad, light weight for its size, and decent performance (powered by new partner AMD), Microsoft's larger-screen Surface Laptop 3 is an excellent mainstream machine.

Attractive, unassuming design. Thin and light for a 15-inch laptop. Bright, vivid 3:2 display. Comfortable touchpad.

Optional extras (such as the Surface Dock) are pricey. Limited selection of ports. No Wi-Fi 6 support.

Bottom Line: With a large 3:2 screen, a comfortable touchpad, light weight for its size, and decent performance (powered by new partner AMD), Microsoft's larger-screen Surface Laptop 3 is an excellent mainstream machine.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15-inch review: it’s a bigger Surface Laptop

 

The new 15-inch Surface Laptop is a familiar package with new dimensions

Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Sturdy build quality ; Good performance for everyday productivity tasks ; 3:2 aspect ratio screen is great for productivity ; Relatively little bloatware out of the box ; Windows Hello facial login works great

Only two USB ports ; No Thunderbolt 3 ports ; Below average battery life ; No SD card slot ; Matte black model gets full of fingerprints almost immediately ; Struggles editing and even playing back 4K video

Still, if you were hoping that the 15-inch Laptop 3 would be more than just a bigger Surface Laptop, I’m sorry to report that you’ll be disappointed. Fortunately, there are plenty of other, more powerful 15-inch laptops available, such as Apple’s...

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15-inch (Ryzen 7) review: The price tag climbs, but battery life drops

 

We've tested a second 15-inch Microsoft Surface Laptop 3, this time with a top-of-the-line Ryzen 7 processor inside. You'll pay more for a moderate performance bump, but even more disappointing battery life.

Stunning PixelSense display is as good as ever ; USB-C plus the Surface Connector expands I/O and power options ; Surprisingly good cooling keeps it almost fanless ; Better multi-monitor support ; Stunning PixelSense display is as good as ever ; USB-C...

Keyboard is slightly shallower ; Battery life disappoints ; Battery life is really disappointing ; Keyboard is slightly shallower than predecessor

Picking apart keyboard subtleties usually boils down to the spacing between the keys (the pitch), and the amount of play in the keys (the key travel). Surface keyboards are generally quite good, and the Surface Laptop 3 keyboard is no exception:...

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (15-Inch) Review: AMD Ryzen Surface Edition

 

This year at Microsoft's somewhat annual Surface update event, Microsoft surprised everyone by not only announcing a newer and larger Surface Laptop 3, bumping the screen size from 13.5-inches to 15-inches, but also by selecting an AMD processor for...

Overall, the Surface Laptop 3 15 is a great laptop. It keeps all of the design cues of the smaller generation and just makes it a bit bigger, retaining the same thin & light design and keeping it easy to travel with. Microsoft has forged a solid...

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15-inch: A Microsoft-endorsed AMD experience Review | ZDNet

 

If you are in the market for a Surface Laptop or Macbook Air, the choice really comes down to two things: Size, and political loyalty.

Metal appearance is far better than cloth ; 3:2 display ; Points for giving AMD a run ; Nice keyboard

Disappointing battery life ; One side vacant of USB ports

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (15-inch) Review

 

The Surface Laptop 3 is a striking-looking laptop that may disappoint with its performance.

For those looking for Microsoft's vision of a laptop, the Surface Laptop 3 is plenty capable, if a tad bit underwhelming. We look forward to checking out the 13.5-inch model to see how its Intel processors differ from AMD's.
