Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 13.5-inch review: have a normal one

 

Microsoft's latest Surface Laptop isn't without faults, but it is a very good computer

Outstanding keyboard and trackpad ; Sleek design and sturdy build quality ; Great everyday performance

Below average battery life ; Limited port selection and no Thunderbolt 3 support ; Some odd bugs that make for a less-than-perfect experience

Aside from those pesky bugs and the merely okay battery life, the Laptop 3 13.5 is a very good laptop, and I think most people looking for a premium Windows 10 computer will be very happy with it. It doesn’t have any of the nagware or bloatware so...

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15-inch (Core i7) review: This is the one you should buy

 

Microsoft's Surface Laptop 3 with Intel's 10th-gen Core i7 processor, Ice Lake, combines exemplary performance with all-day battery life.

All-day battery life ; Excellent performance ; Bright, beautiful screen

Keyboard isn't quite as good as in previous models ; No Thunderbolt I/O tech behind its USB-C ports

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....

Sayonara, Alcantara: Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 13.5-inch Core i5 Review

 

The new aluminum metal chassis feels classier, stronger, smoother, and longer-lasting than the Alcantara versions that Microsoft have been shoving down our throats since the original Surface Laptop. If Microsoft could throw in some additional ports,...

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (15-inch, Intel) review

 

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15-inch is a light and elegant laptop, and you want the Intel version, not the AMD model.

You can save $100 and get a lot more speed by getting a comparably spec'd 4K XPS 15, but its battery will conk out an hour and a half earlier. But as this Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 review has shown, this is the laptop you want if you're searching for...

Surface Laptop 3 review

 

The superb Surface Laptop 3 gets some welcome improvements

Latest-gen processors ; USB-C at last ; Premium look and feel

Limited ports ; No Thunderbolt ; Middling battery life

Microsoft’s flagship Surface Laptop 3 gets a welcome power-up and better connectivity options, but the 13-inch prioritises portability over being a real workhorse – for more graphical grunt look at the 15-inch version or Surface Book 2.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 review

 

A lesson that you don't need to be showy to be brilliant

Superb keyboard ; Great speakers ; Excellent build quality

The USB-C isn't Thunderbolt 3 ; Purist design may seem feature-light

The Surface Laptop 3 is everything a laptop should be, if not everything a lot of modern laptops are today
