Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 Specs
Microsoft on Tuesday announced a new 2021 Surface Laptop, called the Surface Laptop 4. In relation to the article made by CNET, the new version adds 11th-gen Intel Core processors, paired with Intel Iris XE graphics.
With AMD processor option — Zen 2 series — with a graphics chip called AMD Radeon Graphics Microsoft Surface Edition.
Since its debut in 2017, it’s been a contender for the best all-purpose slim Windows laptop. But plenty of companies offer 13-inch-class slim laptops, all hoping to be the Windows version of Apple’s ubiquitous MacBook Air.
Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 price?
While Surface Laptop 4 preorders is still active, you could still order a Core i5 13-inch Surface Laptop 3 (with 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD) for US$769, or US$899 for a 256GB SSD.
It’s design feature has a combination of aluminum and Alcantara fabric, making it a truly unique laptop. Yes, having a fabric-covered laptop wrist rest may seem like an odd choice, but Alcantara is tough and the idea has stuck around.
Alcantara fabric was originally designed for boat interior. You can get a plain, all-aluminum design as well. Colors include the standard black and platinum, plus a new color option named Ice Blue.
Microsoft is leaning into AMD
Its price starts at $999, but that’s for the AMD version with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. The least-expensive 15-inch version is also AMD-based, and costs $1,299.
That AMD processor version has an excellent battery life of up to 19 hours. No changes are expected in the display, which was already a forward-looking 3:2 aspect ratio display at 2,256×1,504-pixel resolution (2,496×1,664 in the 15-inch version).
The webcam remains at 720 resolution, and the ports are unchanged, with both USB-A and USB-C ports, but no Thunderbolt.
