All screen and no substance. The new Surface Laptop sounds and looks more special than it really is. While the unique 3:2 touchscreen is bright, crisp, and colorful for graphic artists, almost everything else fails to impress.

80% Microsoft Surface Laptop Review

Microsoft has designed a very good-looking laptop. It delivers solid performance for everyday tasks, as well as great battery life, while still being slim and light. It feels extremely premium and will definitely grab eyeballs. However, the focus seems to have been a bit too narrow. The looks come at the cost of common usability issues such as only having a single USB port and not being able to upgrade or replace any parts. We think this laptop would be best suited for frequent travellers who care more about work than entertainment.

As a first stab at a proper lightweight notebook, the Surface Studio is a capable and accomplished offering. It's held back slightly by the omission of USB-C connectivity and the decision to ship it with Windows 10 S, but it's otherwise an absolutely superb device.

Microsoft has made some slightly baffling decisions with the Surface Laptop. Debuting Windows 10 S - an operating system that would be most at home on a low-budget Chromebook rival - on what is otherwise a top-notch ultrabook is an odd choice, as is spurning the incredible versatility of the USB-C standard.

Overall, the Microsoft Surface Laptop is a solid option if its build quality, industrial design, plush Alcantara keyboard and 3:2 aspect ratio display strike your fancy. Starting at $799, or roughly $1K as configured, it's a competent Windows laptop with a few caveats, but a unique, clean design signature.

Surface Laptop Review: Windows with Walls
Source: Paste English
At $1299, you can find cheaper options or ones with better specs, but none of these systems come wrapped in Alcantara fabric. Unless you’re set on Windows 10 S, HP’s 13-inch Spectre x360 represents a better value at that price—it has a convertible hinge, comes with twice the RAM and double the storage and supports Thunderbolt 3 over USB Type-C. The Surface Laptop places a large premium for design, and if you’re willing to pay to play, then Microsoft’s debut notebook will give you fast performance, long battery life and plenty of style, especially if you’re able to take advantage of Microsoft’s free upgrade path to Windows 10 Pro through the end of the year.

Oddly, the Surface Laptop feels like progress forward and back, all at once. Microsoft originally designed the Surface lineup to hustle its hardware partners faster into the future, implicitly stripping Apple of its design cachet and encouraging consumers to buy new PCs. Now, the Surface Laptop has stepped down a rung, challenging some of the cheaper, more mainstream product lines of its hardware partners to keep up. Laptops like HP’s latest Spectre x360 already do, but other vendors could use a push.

Microsoft set out to make the most refined notebook it could with the Surface Laptop, and for the most part it succeeded. It's sleek and powerful and has great battery life. It might seem like a step back for Microsoft, after trying to promote new twists on notebooks over the past few years. But it's more of a realization: There's still a huge demand for traditional laptops. And Microsoft just showed how it's done.

Fortunately, upgrading to Windows 10 Pro is quick, easy, free (for now), and doesn’t have any particular downside, so it’s something I recommend you do.

Provided you make that upgrade, the Surface Laptop might be the new default computer I recommend, essentially taking over exactly where the MacBook Air left off.

Surface Laptop Review Roundup: Nice Hardware, Windows 10 S Disappoints
Source: Extreme Tech English
The press are generally positive about the laptop as a whole. The Verge notes that the $1,300 model is “the new de facto Windows laptop that most people who want a Windows laptop should get.” Engadget states that while overall performance scores are solid, the Surface Laptop’s storage scores are only ~50 percent of the Surface Pro 4. Gaming performance is, as expected, very low — don’t plan on playing anything but simple, low-spec games on this system. Even so, Engadget says: “There’s still a huge demand for traditional laptops. And Microsoft just showed how it’s done.” CNET is less positive, arguing that while the Surface Laptop does nothing wrong, it also doesn’t particularly distinguish itself compared with equivalently priced devices, either.

Gaming performance is, as expected, very low — don’t plan on playing anything but simple, low-spec games on this system. Even so, Engadget says: “There’s still a huge demand for traditional laptops. And Microsoft just showed how it’s done.” CNET is less positive, arguing that while the Surface Laptop does nothing wrong, it also doesn’t particularly distinguish itself compared with equivalently priced devices, either.

80% Microsoft Surface Laptop review: wonderfully engineered high-end laptop with just a few baffling quirks
Source: T3 English
The Surface Laptop is a beautiful thing, and works very well. I'm not sure the fabric palm rests and use of Windows 10 S are the greatest ideas, but mainly I think the pricing is just that bit too high.

Hands-on with the Microsoft Surface Laptop: it's a pretty laptop
Source: Hardware Zone English
In more ways than one, the Surface Laptop is the first erm… traditional laptop that Microsoft has built. And by that, I meant a screen attached firmly to a keyboard base, with neither the kickstand and detachable keyboard cover that you see on the Surface Pro 2-in–1 models, nor the funky hinge that lets you separate the screen from the GPU base like what you’ve on the Surface Book hybrid.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Hands On: Setting The Standard Once Again

The time I had with Surface Laptop was rather too brief, unfortunately. I was not able to test things like the volume output from the hidden omnidirectional speakers, and the laptop’s performance. But one thing is for sure: it is definitely one of the best looking Windows laptops at the moment.

84.9% Microsoft Surface (i7-7660U) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
The wolf in sheep's clothing? Why is there another review of the Microsoft Surface Laptop i7? Is this just a rebranding of the recently released i5-based Surface Laptop, but with an Intel Core i7-7660U instead of the i5-7200U? So it is faster and more expensive. And this is what comes to mind at a first glance, however the devil is in the details. There is one thing that we can tell you right off the bat, though: It is becoming scarce!

Source: It Pro English
As a first stab at a proper lightweight notebook, the Surface Studio is a capable and accomplished offering. It's held back slightly by the omission of USB-C connectivity and the decision to ship it with Windows 10 S, but it's otherwise an absolutely superb device.

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review: Surface Essentials
Source: AnandTech English
Overall, the Surface Laptop 2 is an easy laptop to fall for. It offers great styling, a good display, and the Surface touches such as a touch display, great keyboard, and great design. Some people won’t be able to live with a single USB port though, and that decision will knock this laptop out of consideration for those users. But if you don’t need a lot of connectivity, the Surface Laptop 2 is a fantastic device and worthy of consideration. The pricing is generally $100 more than the equivilent Surface Pro though, and that price gap expands significantly at the top end of the range to $400 more for the Surface Laptop for a 1TB Core i7 with 16 GB of RAM. That's a steep price hike over the Surface Pro 6, and is possibly why Microsoft sells far more Surface Pros than anything else in their lineup.

Much the same as the original, Microsoft's Surface Laptop 2 remains a sleek ultraportable with a top-notch build, a stellar screen, and a very long-lasting battery. Add a port or two, and it would be a superstar.

We were disappointed, though, that the battery ran out after playing video for just over seven hours – 50 per cent less than before. You’d get more battery life in basic tasks, less with heavy work and Wi-Fi. The final change is that you get Windows 10 Home, not the restricted Windows 10 S, which is welcome.

An excellent display, long-lasting battery, comfortable keyboard, and fetching design mean the Surface Laptop 2 is a high performer for everyday use. It's not cheap though.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 review: Windows 10 perfection, bar one irritation...
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Surface Laptop 2 is one of the best premium ultraportables out there. Just like its predecessor it's gorgeous to look at and incredibly well built. Only this time it comes with full Windows 10 off the bat, plus more power than before. The biggest downside is the lack of USB-C, otherwise it's near perfect.

The Surface Laptop 2 is an elegant 13.5-inch touch-screen laptop. This year's model offers two notable perks: modern 8th-Gen Intel processors and a slick black color (though you need to spend more for it). Its sluggish SSD and lack of Type-C ports are my only knocks against this laptop. Still, the Surface Laptop 2 presents a beautifully clean vision for the PC, and this update allows it to keep up with our other favorite ultraportable laptops.

90% Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 review: The sequel is better than the original
Source: Engadget English
Microsoft didn’t just up the style game on the Surface Laptop 2 -- it brought the heat in performance and battery life as well. The speed and battery improvements aren’t as huge as promised, but they’re still significant. A comfortable keyboard, responsive trackpad and brilliant display bring the whole package together nicely. All told, this is one of the best notebooks of the year.

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 2 is, from top to bottom, a worthy sequel to the original device. This new model vastly improves the laptop’s power profile and, while it doesn't include tangible design changes, it ultimately achieves the most pure Windows 10 experience on a laptop.

Sleek and speedy with a stunning screen, the Surface Laptop 2 continues Microsoft's tradition of hardware excellence. If only its port selection were stronger, its storage more affordable and Microsoft didn't place its black colorway at a pricier tier.

But I can’t call it the best laptop overall right now, because there are other options with better performance, just as sleek designs, and more modern port selections. The Surface Laptop certainly wasn’t broken, but Microsoft could have done a little more to improve the Surface Laptop 2.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2, i7 (JKQ-00069)

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2, i7 (JKQ-00069) is an interesting laptop in terms of design. Microsoft has refined the ultra portable attraction with the Surface Laptop 2. It is built with premium materials, clean and sleek design touches, as well as lightning fast speed. These factors are making it one of the most ideal ultra portables available on the market. At just 1.25 kg, it’s very lightweight to hold with just one hand. It’s also very slim and thin at just 308 x 223 x 14.5 mm. The design of the laptop is quite Macbook-like. The slim and sleek design on the sturdy aluminium body makes it a pleasure to the touch on any user’s hands. It has four different finishes, namely the platinum, black, burgundy and cobalt blue. The finishing is sure to attract attention in a crowd as it is uncommon around the market. Besides that, it also features spill and stain-proof Alcantara fabric keyboard and touchpad, preventing users from ruining the pretty fabric finish on the Surface laptop by liquid spills. The first Surface laptop has already featured quite a large and beautiful display. On the Surface Laptop 2, the display is enhanced even more, even though it is just some minor improvements. The display of the Surface Laptop 2 is still the same 3:2 ratio, 2,256 x 1,504 pixels PixelSense display. However, the touch screen seems even more responsive than it’s predecessor, perfect for users who interact with very light touches on the display. It is also usable with a Microsoft Surface Pen if a user is willing to pay extra for that extra accessory. Looking at the performance, the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 is undoubtedly a powerhouse device. Featuring an Intel Core i7-8650U processor, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB NVMe storage and an Intel UHD Graphics 620 graphics processing unit, it can certainly power through many resource demanding processes. Since a Surface Laptop 2 isn’t targeted for gamers, the integrated graphics processor can only deliver gaming experience at low to medium graphics settings. Microsoft has ditched Windows 10S in favor of full-fledged Windows 10, which is an advantage due to the locked down features on Windows 10 S. The battery has remain unchanged on the Surface Laptop 2. The battery life of the Surface Laptop 2 is actually very similar compared to its predecessor, featuring 14-hour all-day battery. As for audio, the Surface Laptop 2 speaker is not loud at all, but it certainly delivers a decent audio experience for video calls or movies. As for portability, the laptop only has a single USB 3 port, a mini DisplayPort and a 3.5 mm audio jack. As a conclusion, the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 is a slight improvement compared to its predecessor, making it one step closer to the perfect ultra-portable laptop for travelers or business usage.

Comment

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).


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

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series).Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640: Integrated graphics card (GT3e), which is used for some Kaby Lake CPUs (ULV models, 15 Watts).Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i5:

7200U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.5 to 3.1 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

7660U: Kaby-Lake based ULV-SoC (System on a Chip) for thin notebooks and Ultrabooks. Integrates two CPU cores clocked at 2.5-4 GHz as well as an Iris Plus Graphics 640 GPU clocked at 300 - 1050 MHz and 64 MB eDRAM. Manufactured in a 14nm process.Intel Kaby Lake Refresh:

8250U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,100 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process. 8650U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.9 and 4.2 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.
13.5:

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

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

1.25 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

1.4 kg:


81.94%: 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.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
