84.9% Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 15 laptop review: New AMD processor and more endurance | Notebookcheck
Microsoft presents the 4th generation of the Surface laptop, again offering the larger 15-inch model also with a special AMD Ryzen processor besides the Intel CPUs. Otherwise nothing much has changed, and Microsoft continues to forgo modern connections such as Thunderbolt.

Of course, there's still plenty of room for improvement. I'd love to see a Surface Laptop with thinner bezels, a more diverse selection of ports, and a better webcam. It would have been great to see Microsoft figure out a way to include the latest Ryzen 5000-series mobile CPUs, too.

So, where does that leave the Surface Laptop 4? It’s a great laptop and a solid option for anyone wanting a high-end, premium experience. If great build quality is important to you, you’ll love the Surface Laptop 4. Value hunters seeking to get the most performance for their dollar may be better off looking for a cheaper option from another manufacturer.

If you want a 15-inch laptop for the extra screen real estate it affords, and don't have big plans—you're not editing video or gaming—the Surface Laptop 4 is a solid choice. For most, the base $1,299 version with the Ryzen 7, 8 gigabytes of RAM, and 256-GB SSD is more than enough for watching Netflix, editing documents, and browsing the web. What sets it apart from similarly priced, and certainly cheaper, laptops is the build quality.

78% Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 15-inch review: Better battery in an overly familiar update

Toss in some wonky USB-C and touchscreen behavior I experienced -- they both stopped working until a random reboot fairy sprinkled some magic dust on them -- and it's hard to place the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 in the top tier of models we've tested over the past couple of years. But you'll probably be perfectly happy with it, especially if your IT department buys it for you.

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 4 (Ryzen 7) is undoubtedly a solid offering compared to other laptops in this generation. Its design is as good as ever, and while its performance is mixed, it often finishes at the top of the heap. Battery life, has improved, even if you’ll find that Microsoft has sneakily lowered the screen brightness when running on battery power. It remains premium-priced, but you get a lot for the money.

87% Surface Laptop 4 review (15-inch): A bigger, better ultraportable
Source: Engadget English
You could look at the Surface Laptop 4 as a statement by Microsoft. It doesn't need to follow every single trend in the PC market, not when it already has very capable hardware. And when you look at just how solid the Laptop 4 is, I can see why the company made that choice. I'm just hoping that Microsoft is a bit less conservative with the next model. Sometimes, it’s okay to show off a bit.

Surface Laptop 4 review (15-inch): A bigger, better ultraportable
Source: Engadget English
Microsoft has played it safe with the Surface Laptop, but when it feels this good, maybe that's okay? While there are plenty of models from Dell, Asus, and HP that are flashier or more inventive, the Surface Laptop remains a solid performing, well-made device. With the option of either AMD Ryzen 4000-series chips, or new 11th gen Intel CPUs, it's a decent performer, and is paired with a great keyboard and screen. The XPS 13 and 15 are the closest competition, and if you're ambivalent about Windows, and new M1 Macbooks are excellent, but for a solid Windows machine that just works, the Surface Laptop 4 is here for you.

On the other hand, even if the larger MacBook Pro is spectacular, there are some advantages the Laptop 4 will certainly retain (it runs Windows, and it’s built like a Surface Laptop) and some it will probably retain (it’ll likely be lighter than the MacBook Pro 16). And, of course, plenty of people need a laptop right now. In today’s market, among today’s 15-inch laptops, the Surface Laptop 4 is a pretty damn good buy. Microsoft didn’t change much about the outside — but on the inside, it really pulled through.

If only Microsoft hadn't stubbornly ignored some of the smaller problems plaguing the Surface Laptop series. There is only one USB Type-C port (without Thunderbolt support), the proprietary Surface Connect input is, well, proprietary, and the display bezels are long overdue for a buzzcut. These, you would think, are the easy things to fix. And yet, I close this largely positive review with the feeling that Microsoft was only a shake and a twist away from making the Surface Laptop 4 the laptop to beat.

While it’s true that these alternatives offer more configuration options, they come with an added expense that’s not necessarily worth it for value-minded users, given the multi-threaded muscle that the Surface Laptop 4 can bring to bear. Neither of these alternatives offers ancillary advantages like a significantly better screen or a vastly more robust port selection, either. So the Surface Laptop 4 earns an Editors’ Choice award as the best general-purpose 15-inch laptop you can buy right now.

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 is a well-rounded laptop: it has a long battery life, a fast processor, a sturdy aluminum body, a phenomenal user experience, and a great screen. It does not lead the pack in any of these areas, but it also does not fail anywhere. It consistently meets and exceeds expectations. While it’s definitely pricey, it’s a laptop that will please a wide variety of users. We’re overall impressed with the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4. It didn’t manage to best its greatest rival, the MacBook Air, for performance, battery life, or value, but it gets close. It’s one of the best Windows-based laptops on performance alone, and when you factor in its excellent keyboard, trackpad, screen, and stellar appearance, it’s a phenomenal choice for many users.

Were I in the market for a laptop, and needed Windows 10, I suspect I’d be looking to the Surface Laptop 4. Part of that is the clear consideration to usability: Microsoft has obviously sweated the small stuff around the keyboard, trackpad, and general aesthetic. Trying to encapsulate that somewhat nebulous – but no less important – “feel” of a device is tricky, but there’s generally a pleasantness to using the Surface Laptop 4 that a lot of rival notebooks lack.

The Surface Laptop 4 improves on the Surface Laptop 3 in many ways, offering Windows fans a bloatware-free ultraportable with premium components packed inside a beautiful, lightweight chassis. While I’d have liked to see Microsoft attempt some more significant changes to the Surface Laptop formula, the excellent speakers, improved battery life, and under-the-hood upgrades make the Surface Laptop 4 one of the best Windows laptops you can buy — and a serious contender for a spot among the best laptops on the market.

Despite those complaints, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Surface Laptop 4. Everything about it just works, from the keyboard to the speakers and the beautiful display. It's fast, it lasts a long time on a charge, and it feels sturdy. I'm still hoping the next version gets a redesign to avoid looking outdated against its peers, but those aesthetic shortcomings are easily ignored because of how well the Surface nails the functional elements.

Surface Laptop 4 Review: Microsoft plays catch-up with Intel Tiger Lake
Source: XDA Developers English
Here’s the deal with the Surface Laptop 4. It’s an awesome laptop with fantastic build quality and great performance. The big deal-breaker is that it doesn’t have Thunderbolt 4. It’s tough to ignore the fact that this doesn’t come with an Intel Evo sticker, meaning that it doesn’t pass Intel’s tests for being a great ultrabook.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 review (hands on)

So far, the Surface Laptop 4 is what we expected it would be: the Surface Laptop 3, but with new internal components. And that means you should expect a pretty darn good laptop, though one with a thick-bezel design that's starting to show its age. Which is why we're ultra-eager to put the Surface Laptop 4 through its paces with our gamut of performance, display and endurance tests. We will update this Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 review once we have completed testing. If Microsoft's claims are proven true, this may become the standout Surface device of the entire family.

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?

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.

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.
