Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 review: Steps in the right direction

 

Microsoft has made some big gains to performance and battery life, making the Surface Laptop 4 the best in the line so far.

AMD chips widely available in configurations ; Thinnest 15-inch laptop ; Superb build quality ; Great typing experience ; Long-lasting battery life

Older AMD chips hold back performance ; Thick bezels, poor webcam

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 15-inch review: redemption

 

Microsoft's clamshell finally hits the mark.

Big performance gains ; Excellent battery life ; 3:2 display ; Super light

Not many ports ; Keyboard’s a bit flat ; No Thunderbolt support (even on Intel models)

Microsoft’s 15-inch Surface Laptop 4 is essentially a Surface Laptop 3 with new processors. But the new AMD Ryzen 4000 chips bring much-needed improvements in performance and battery life.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 (15-Inch) Review

 

A new AMD Ryzen 7 processor brings significant performance improvements to the 15-inch Microsoft Surface Laptop 4, making it an excellent choice for general-purpose computing on a big screen.

Few configuration options ; Can't get a version with a discrete GPU ; Only two USB ports

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 (15-inch, AMD) review

 

The Surface Laptop 4 may look familiar but the AMD chips housed within are now ready for primetime

Sleek, sturdy chassis ; Speedy performance ; Long battery life ; Great 15-inch display ; Comfortable keyboard and touchpad ; Awesome speakers

Short on ports ; No discrete graphics option ; Bezels could be thinner ; Fingerprint sensor would be nice

Microsoft's 15-inch Surface Laptop 4 with AMD is among the best laptops you can buy, bringing the performance and battery life missing from the previous model.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 15 laptop review: New AMD processor and more endurance

 

Notebookcheck tests the new Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 15 with a custom AMD processor. But can the processor alone justify the high price?

very high system performance;extremely high multi-core performance;good 3:2 display;robust and light case;accurate colors, full sRGB coverage;often silent in everyday operation;improved battery life;good speakers

aging and few connections, no LTE;impractical Surface-Connect port;bad webcam;only one-year warranty;high price;slow response times;hardly any maintenance options

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 review

 

Microsoft's Surface Laptop 4 offers strong performance, impressive audio and very good battery life, but the design is starting to feel a bit stale.

Light, slim design ; Very comfy keyboard ; Great speakers ; Good battery life

Needs more ports ; Thick bezels are an eyesore ; Needs a better webcam

We already have a laundry list of changes we’d like to see in a sequel (thinner bezels, a better webcam, Thunderbolt 4 support and more ports in general), but the Surface Laptop 4’s tall screen, comfortable keyboard and svelte, sturdy design make it a...

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 Review: Working out the kinks

 

Microsoft's 15-inch Surface Laptop 4 packs a punch and offers improved performance over last year's model, without changing much else.

Significant performance improvements for AMD variants ; Decent battery life ; 3:2 aspect ratio is king

Performance tuning needed to get the most from your laptop ; Same limited ports ; Pricier than comparable options

The Surface Laptop 4 is a great laptop and a solid option for anyone wanting a high-end, premium experience.

Microsoft's Surface Laptop 4 Is Nearly Perfect

 

Microsoft's newest laptop has an excellent keyboard and solid battery life for the price.

Design, dimensions, keyboard, performance, thermals

Price is still slightly high for the specs; wish there was an AMD 5000-series mobile processor version instead

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 review

 

As bold as ice

Distinctive yet understated looks ; Day-long battery life ; Comfy keyboard

Screen bezels still chunky ; Limited ports ; Webcam only average

New silicon gives Microsoft's ultraportable even better battery life and a healthy performance boost. It's still not perfect, but can continue to trade blows with the MacBook Air.
