Lift open the Surface Laptop’s lid, and you are met with a lovely 13.5-inch PixelSense touch screen display. Microsoft’s PixelSense panels are among the most beautiful around, so it’s good to see the company has brought them to the Surface Laptop.

The notebook’s oddest function is easily its fabric-covered keyboard deck. The material is identical Microsoft uses on the rear of its Surface Pro 4 Type Cover. The fabric is smooth to the touch and provides the laptop a kind of warmth.

Superbly crafted
