Microsoft Surface Laptop review

 

Microsoft's most direct shot at the MacBook yet

Gorgeous design ; Well built ; Great screen ; Very good performance

Windows 10 S is limited ; No USB-C ; Lack of other ports ; Not upgradable

Microsoft continues its winning streak with the brilliant Surface Laptop, which combines a thin and light design with powerful components.

It doesn't have all the ports we'd like but the Surface Laptop has excellent design and mind-boggling battery life. Read more in our full review.

Review: Microsoft Surface Laptop

 

Microsoft's fabric-laden Surface Studio takes aim at the MacBook.

Great looking ; Excellent screen ; Good performance ; Lightweight

Windows S won't install Creative Cloud ; No Pen included ; Expensive for higher-end models ; Not upgradable

A great looking, light, well-built laptop with a good 13.5-inch touchscreen and decent specs. However, the Surface Book and Surface Pro have more versatility as digital sketchpads.

Microsoft Surface Laptop review

 

Microsoft's ultra portable is a comfortable stunner

Best keyboard on a laptop ; The brightness and screen quality is great ; Alcantara finish brings comfort to work

Microsoft Surface 2 is already out ; Windows store needs more apps if it wants people to use 10S

A comfortable to use Windows machine that is well worth the money but only if you’re ready to pay for a generation old processor

I bought this for my daughter as she's going to university. She loves it because is the perfect size, lightweight and really stylish. I also love it and I'm going to get another one for myself.

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Very happy with my purchase

 

This laptop is beautiful (it seems to be an almost exact copy of a macbook pro in design however). Yes, there is a distinct lack of USB ports but the one on the actual AC adapter brings the total up to two. Also be prepared to not be able to upgrade...
