Microsoft finally comes with a Surface-branded laptop, and it’s attractive. Unveiled at a press event in New York on Tuesday, the aptly called Microsoft Surface Laptop is the original true notebook from the Windows maker.
Sure, Microsoft already provides the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book. However, these are convertible devices that can be used as both laptops or tablets.
A soft-touch keyboard and beautiful display
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.
We all know that in addition to performance and battery life, students need something they’re proud to carry. With Surface Laptop, we generated a warm and human experience, moving the technology into the background.
Less is more and more is less
Within, the base $999 version of the Surface Laptop gets a 128GB solid-state drive, a seventh-generation Intel Core i5 processor and also has a 4GB of RAM. Apple’s MacBook Air, which also begins at $999, comes with a sixth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.
Interestingly, if you take a Surface Laptop with an Intel Core i5 processor, 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, you’ll end up paying about $100 more than a comparably equipped MacBook Air.
