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

When the device first came out, it started at $999.99. However, as of April 2021 and with the release of the Surface Laptop 4, you’ll most likely find a bargain for the Surface Laptop 3, starting with the Windows Store that’s selling it for $769.99 or you can have a look at deals on Amazon. In my opinion, the higher the spec is, the worst a deal it becomes especially as you get closer in price to its successor. Considering that the Surface Laptop 4 is an improved Surface Laptop 3, the one that you should get will depend on the deals available and how much those improvements are worth to you.

No two ways about it, the Surface Laptop 3 (13.5in) is an exceptionally good laptop. It's very light, slim and good looking, with performance across the board that’s a match for the best in the business. It's more practical than previous models, with non-Alcantara options that won’t get grubby, and a good spread of specifications means you can choose a model that suits your requirements and not pay more than you need to. As with most products, there is the odd area of weakness. It's high time Microsoft moved to wide-gamut displays on its hardware and, ideally, I'd have liked to see a Thunderbolt 3-equipped USB Type-C port, rather than plain old USB 3. It's also a touch disappointing that Microsoft has provided only one Type-C port. But these are relatively small complaints. If you want a laptop for work and, maybe, a little play, the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is a brilliant option with very few significant shortcomings.

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″)’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.
