Microsoft Surface Laptop Review: The anti-MacBook Pro

 

Microsoft knows how to make sleek hardware. If the Surface Book is handsome but bulky, and the Surface Pro is more minimalistic but suffers a less-compelling keyboard, then the Surface Laptop falls happily in-between. You don't get a fancy detachable...

Handsome, considered design ; Freedom from dongles ; Performance and battery life are solid ; Easy upgrade route to Windows 10 Pro

No USB-C limits futureproofing ; $1,299 version is the minimum spec worth considering ; No SD card slot ; Windows 10 S is very locked-down

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.

Microsoft's latest PC feels like more laptop, less Surface

 

The more conservative design of the latest Surface makes it a surprisingly strong entry in the slim, high-end laptop game.

The Surface Laptop has a slim, modern design and comes in a selection of cool colors. Battery life is very good, and the keyboard and touchpad are both excellent.

The included Windows 10 S operating system can only install preapproved apps by default (but it's upgradable). The long-term life of the fabric covering remains a question. The cooler colors are only available in more expensive configurations, and the...

While it doesn't necessarily stand out in a crowded field, the Surface Laptop has a great design and is a solid, travel-friendly clamshell PC.

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

Microsoft Surface Laptop

 

The OG Surface Laptop. Running a 7th Gen i5, where 10th Gen is the latest. I experienced poor battery life as well (it was a demo anyway, so battery was only 2/3 the size of rated capacity!). It has hardly any ports. The webcam is horrible. On the plus...
