Microsoft Surface Laptop 5 15 review - Old design for a premium price

Expensive office laptop. Microsoft have updated the Surface Laptop 5 with Alder Lake processors and Thunderbolt 4 - but the rest of the device has remained the same. Neither performance nor features can make up for the laptop's premium price.

Microsoft updated their Surface laptop at the end of last year, but this new update doesn't actually come with many new features. The manufacturer decided to drop the AMD option for the 5th generation and instead now offers the 13.5 and 15-inch versions exclusively with Intel Alder Lake processors. Apart from their new processors, practically nothing else has changed - since the laptops still use the exact same case. The price, however, remains within the premium range and our test configuration - the 15-inch model with the Core i7-1255U, 16 GB RAM and a 512 GB SSD - is currently being sold by Microsoft for the MSRP of around $4,000 - an overly confident price considering the device's technical specs. However, the laptop can be found a lot cheaper from other retailers, with prices starting from around $1,699. We have tested whether the Surface Laptop 5 15 can still compete against other similar devices in early 2023.

Case & features

The laptop's case has remained the exact same as its predecessor's. Microsoft continue to offer platinum and black color options and generally, the device's metal case is made from good-quality materials - although, our test device tended to creak a lot when handled. In addition to this, its wide bezels are no longer very up-to-date, which ends up really showing the design's age. The screen's hinges are properly adjusted (max. opening angle ~135 degrees), but cannot prevent a slight teetering. The case still can't be opened, so it is neither possible for users to clean the fans nor to replace or upgrade any of the laptop's components.

The connections are also mostly the same as before - although now, the USB-C connection finally supports Thunderbolt 4. The device still relies on a Surface Connect port for charging and connecting accessories. At least there is some continuity here, even though we still don't find the connector particularly practical. However, the device's port variety is very limited in view of the case's size.

The laptop still doesn't have an SD card reader and Microsoft have kept the old AX201 WLAN module. The webcam still only has a resolution of 720p - although, in good lighting conditions, the picture quality is actually somewhat decent.

Input devices - Backlit keyboard and small clickpad

The input devices have also been adopted from the previous model. Overall, the keyboard feels okay when you type, but its large keys still tend to rattle a bit. You can definitely write longer texts with the device, but there are clearly better keyboards on the market. The keyboard's white backlight has three adjustment levels.

The clickpad makes quite a good impression and the normal pointer control doesn't cause any problems. The click noise is also not too loud. Its 11.5 x 7.7 cm size is still sufficient, but there would definitely be much more room for a larger pad.

The 15-inch display still has a resolution of 2,496 x 1,664 pixels in a 3:2 aspect ratio. Subjectively, the touchscreen's picture quality still looks very good, but the laptop's technical specs of 60 Hz and sRGB coverage are not very up-to-date anymore, especially for this price range. The device has a brightness of 400 cd/m², and we measured a maximum of 438 cd/m² (average ~400 cd/m²). Its black value of 0.29 is okay and this results in a contrast ratio of almost 1400:1.
The panel shows slight screen bleeding toward the lower screen edge at high brightness levels with a black background, but this shouldn't be too annoying in everyday use. PWM can also be seen at a brightness of 50% or less, but its frequency of ~22 kHz is extremely high and should not cause any problems for users.

We analyzed the panel using the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro 2) and the device comes with two different profiles. By default, the Enhanced profile is enabled, where the colors look a bit more vivid and saturated - but this also leads to higher color deviations. The sRGB profile subjectively looks a bit paler, but it did great in our analysis and delivered very accurate values without any outliers for both the grayscale and color depictions. Together with the complete sRGB coverage, it is definitely possible to edit pictures without any problems straight out of the box. We could not improve the display further with our own calibration, which is why we aren't offering a downloadable profile here.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
28.7 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13 ms rise
↘ 15.7 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 72 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
52.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 24.4 ms rise
↘ 28 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 88 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (33.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 22000 Hz ≤ 50 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 22000 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 50 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 22000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17803 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoors

Using the Surface Laptop 5 outdoors becomes difficult because its touchscreen is very reflective - the laptop almost acts as a mirror on bright days. This means you would have more luck working in the shade. Its viewing angle stability is very good, but reflections again become a problem at larger angles.

Performance - Microsoft have used Alder Lake-U

Microsoft have ditched the AMD version of the Surface laptop and now only rely on Intel CPUs. This is where the U series Alder Lake models come into play. That they don't yet use Raptor Lake CPUs (13th generation) isn't a problem, as they deliver only marginally better performance. The RAM is soldered on and cannot be upgraded, but Microsoft at least offer the choice of up to 32 GB of RAM.

 
 

Processor - Core i7-1255U

The Alder Lake series (12th generation) Intel Core i7-1255U features two fast performance cores including Hyper-threading in combination with 8 efficiency cores - which means a total of up to 12 threads can be processed simultaneously. The Surface Laptop 5's processor consumed 60 watts for about 1-2 seconds before it stabilized at 30 watts. Looking at these rates, we don't quite get why Microsoft didn't go for an Alder Lake P chip instead.

Compared to the Surface Laptop 4 13 with a Core i7-1185G7, the newer model was 33 per cent faster on average and its single-core performance in particular was excellent. Compared to its predecessor with an AMD processor, however, its multi-core performance was worse - here, we compared it with a Ryzen 7 4980U. The laptop's CPU performance is definitely sufficient for everyday tasks, but in view of its higher price, we expected more from its performance levels. 

When powered by its battery, the device's multi-core performance dropped by around 8 per cent. Here, the processor consumed a maximum of 35/25 watts. However, since the temperatures didn't rise as quickly, the CPU managed to stay at 35 watts for much longer - then dropped to 25 watts. This also shows that its TDP configuration is not particularly good and the 60-watt limit doesn't make a whole lot of sense. More CPU benchmarks are available in our tech section.

Storage devices

The laptop has an NVMe SSD from SK hynix (BC711) installed with a storage capacity of 512 GB, of which 415 GB are still available after the first startup. The drive is connected via PCIe 3.0 - the newer 4.0 interface is not yet supported by the Surface Laptop 5. The device's transfer rates were overall perfectly sufficient with a maximum of 3.5 GB/s and its performance remained completely stable even under longer load. More SSD benchmarks can be found here.
