Microsoft Surface Laptop Review
Microsoft is one of the best tech companies all over the world that is based in Washington. They manufacture world-class quality laptops, tablets, computers, etc. The company also develops operating systems and computer software.
This Surface laptop features a touchscreen display. It comes with all the necessary features you expect in a laptop. Let’s talk about its features, pros, and cons to know the high budget of this product is justified or not.
This is one of those few laptops that can be operated normally using mouse and keyboard but also comes with the touchscreen feature. The ultra-thin bezel makes this touchscreen looks more premium. The touch is very responsive and is sensitive. This can also support some gestures and comes with a multi-touch feature supporting up to 10 fingers.
To increase the security level of your laptop, Microsoft has introduced Windows Hello in this device, which is a biometrics-based technology. There are two cameras on the front, one is the usual front-facing camera, and the other one is the Windows Hello facial recognition camera. It recognizes your face before unlocking your laptop, making your documents, apps, and online services more secure than ever.
Microsoft has always been focused on building lightweight devices so that you don’t face any problem while carrying them. This laptop also weighs only around 1.28 kilograms, which is almost next to nothing for a laptop. This is perfect for people who travel a lot.
What Do We like
This Surface laptop comes with a 13.5-inch Ultra HD touchscreen display. The resolution of this LCD is 2256 x 1504. The high contrast ratio of the screen makes every image and video looks crispy and sharper.
Watching any movie on this device or seeing a colorful image would enhance your experience because it does not miss a single detail. The auto white balance will detect the lights around you and adjust automatically.
Storage and memory
It comes with a solid-state drive of 256 GB. They are extremely fast and responds 50-60% quicker than a standard hard drive. The memory of this laptop is 8GB DDR3 SDRAM, which is pretty decent and helps execute your commands smoothly as well.
This comes with limited free storage in the Microsoft cloud service one drive. You can upload your office suite or even the operating systems to keep your content safe and backed up in the cloud drive. You can subscribe to the premium plan for this cloud service to get more space.
Battery back up
It will ensure up to 15 hours of battery back up if you are using it for your work purposes. Also, the laptop can provide you with up to 10 hours of battery back up for video playback (depending on the screen brightness) as well.
The 2.50GHz Intel Core i7 7th generation quad-core processor is high-speed and reliable. It helps you to perform every task on this laptop with ease. The 8GB SDRAM will make sure you can freely create a virtual computing environment to work or do multitasking without lagging. The blazing-fast SSD, along with the Intel iris plus 640 graphics, enhances your viewing experience. The performance of this device is up to the mark.
What We Don’t Like
This high-end laptop comes with every feature possible except for a graphics card. Every other company is providing a powerful graphics card to make the laptop more convenient and to justify the price range as well.
The Surface Laptop comes with a pre-installed Windows 10 64Bit operating system. It has a one year Microsoft warranty as well. The features of this laptop are pretty decent to work with except for the graphics card.
Apart from this con, everything else is of top-notch quality. If you do not wish or require a graphic card and also have the budget for this premium laptop, then go for it as you won’t be disappointed.
