Reviews for the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 13 i5

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 (13.5″) review – light, thin, fast, and expensive
Source: Laptop Media English
The new Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 (13.5″) is a stylish-looking device that has a premium all-aluminum build, thin profile, and powerful hardware under the bonnet. The first thing that you’re going to notice is the design of this machine and yes, this one looks elegant and modern at the same time. Its stealth-ish design is suitable for all kinds of scenarios – you can use it at home, in the office, and because it’s a lightweight laptop, you can take it with you for a “walk” in the park or when you’re on vacation. The style of the laptop is kind of neutral so there is a big chance to be well-accepted by a lot of people. Unfortunately, the memory is soldered to the motherboard so future upgrades are impossible. The device can be bought with 8GB or 16GB LPDDR4x RAM so pick your configuration carefully – the 16GB variant should be a lot more future-proof. Interestingly enough, according to the CPU-Z reading, the soldered memory works in quad-channel mode. For such an expensive machine, the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 (13.5″) has a very basic I/O – just one USB Type-A and one USB Type-C, that’s all.

70% Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 is a good laptop, but it feels generic compared to its rivals with a processor upgrade its only real upgrade over the Surface Laptop 3. It looks outdated with its chunky bezel and lacks a fingerprint reader. Despite these shortcomings it still offers reasonable value at this price.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 review: The best Windows laptop money can buy?
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 is an exceptionally nice laptop. That word may be banned by English teachers across the land, but "ooh that's nice" is what you'll feel like saying when you feel and use this product. Its aluminium casing is plain lovely, the keyboard is great for fast long-form typing in our opinion, and the touchpad is superb. While the screen's colour and contrast are not quite next-level, the reasonably high brightness and resolution are what most people will actually notice.

80% Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 review
Source: Stuff TV English
It might be more of a refresh than an all-new model, but the Surface Laptop 4 remains one of the most well-rounded Windows notebooks out there. The 3:2 screen, comfy keyboard and unique alcantara finish are well-suited to all kinds of work tasks, and boosts to performance and battery life means it can tackle heavier workloads, or an entire work day away from the mains - with some juice left over to wind down with a Netflix binge afterwards. We'd still like to see those screen bezels trimmed a bit, and the top-spec options are eye-wateringly pricey - but the mainstream version seen here can happily go toe-to-toe with a MacBook air for premium looks and do-anything potential.

92% Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 — Smooth, sleek, stylish, and powerful
Source: Ausdroid English
Microsoft's Surface Laptop 4 is a powerful, capable portable PC and while you'll pay a little more for one than you might pay for a no-name $400 special at your local office retailer, you get a PC that you can rely on for literally years to come. A lack of USB ports is frustrating, but nothing you can't solve with a cheap and cheerful dock or extender in your laptop bag.
