Reviews for the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2-LQN-00004
The new Surface Laptop 2 from Microsoft is a slightly reworked version of the old model with an up-to-date processor. Overall, this creates a well-balanced package. We are particularly happy with the 3:2 screen. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not improved connectivity.
