Reviews for the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 13 Core i5-1035G7

84% Sayonara, Alcantara: Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 13.5-inch Core i5 Review | Notebookcheck
The new aluminum metal chassis feels classier, stronger, smoother, and longer-lasting than the Alcantara versions that Microsoft have been shoving down our throats since the original Surface Laptop. If Microsoft could throw in some additional ports, then they might actually have a winner here.
80% Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 review: Premium price for a premium device
Source: India Today English
The Surface Laptop 3 with its design, hardware, and overall performance, doesn't attempt to do anything special. In fact, there's no attempt to even do so. What it does instead provides an extremely refined experience on a device that looks and feels as premium as anything else available in the market right now.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (13.5) review – the software giant is stepping up its game
Source: Laptop Media English
Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (13.5″)’s display (Sharp LQ135P1JX51 (SHP 14B3)) is touch-sensitive, has a very high resolution, and naturally for an IPS panel – comfortable viewing angles and good contrast ratio. Additionally, it has decent maximum brightness (400+ nits), adequate default settings and comfortable backlight in terms of PWM. Although all of that speaks well of the panel, there is something that represents it even better – the color accuracy. By default, the display is pretty color accurate, however, when you apply our Gaming and Web design profile, the Average dE drops to just 0.8, which makes it one of the most color-accurate displays we’ve had in our office.

13.5":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.288 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Microsoft:

Microsoft smartphones and tablets have been tested since 2012. There are many reviews with average ratings. The reader's interest is quite given, but the market share is not big enough for the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers (as of 2016).


78.8%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
