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

It’s perfect!

 

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.
