Reviews for the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 13 Ryzen 5

85.2% Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 13 Review: Is AMD's Ryzen held back on purpose? | Notebookcheck
The smaller 13.5-inch model of the Surface Laptop 4 is now also available with an AMD Ryzen processor. Private customers, however, only get the base model with the Ryzen 5 and just 8 GB RAM. But is the AMD model perhaps still the better option?
85% Surface Laptop 4 review: Another winner from Microsoft
Source: India Today English
In an aggressive move, Microsoft has launched the Surface Laptop 4 in India with over 10 SKUs which are available on either the 11th Gen Intel Core processors or AMD Ryzen Mobile processors. I got my hands on the model with AMD Ryzen 5 4680U, which comes with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. It costs Rs 122,499 and is a great value proposition for people who are on the move. The battery life is solid on this one, and the display is decent. If you do not want the Surface Laptop 4, you can also look at the Dell XPS 13, which I have reviewed and is a great all-rounder machine. But it is also costly. Another alternative is the MacBook Air, which is available at a price less than that of the Surface Laptop 4.

80% Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 13.5in review: A minor upgrade, but still lovely
Source: Expert Reviews English
As with the previous generation, the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 is a very nice ultraportable laptop. It’s slim and light, looks great and the keyboard, touchpad and display are all superb. This is a laptop I’d be happy to own and use as my day-to-day machine for work. The key question is, however, does it do enough to overhaul the best in the business? My answer to that would have to be: not quite. With uninspiring GPU performance and middling battery life denting its appeal, even the switch to AMD and Intel CPUs across the range can’t drag it level with the M1 MacBook Air.

85% Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 (13.5″, Amd) Review — Perfectly Adequate
Source: Pokde English
The Surface Laptop 4 is a laptop that can be summed up in one word: adequate. In terms of raw performance, it has enough performance for just about anything you might want to do, but it isn’t going to be quite as fast as the latest Ryzen 5000 laptops. I guess it does have a lot more going for it in terms of user experience. Stuff like the adaptive brightness, comfortable keyboard, nice trackpad, and the Alcantara palm rest are definitely nice to have too. The long battery life and excellent display on the Surface Laptop 4 are also notable pluses that put the Surface Laptop 4 ahead of most of its peers. I would say that the clean design and Windows installation can be considered bonuses as well, but there are plenty of beautiful machines out there right now.

AMD Vega 7: Integrated graphics adapter of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 7 CUs (= 448 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 1,600 MHz.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


R5 4680U: A semi-custom hexa-core APU designed for Microsoft devices. The Ryzen features six Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.2 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics adapter with 7 CUs clocked at up to 1,500 MHz.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.50":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.267 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).


82.74%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
