Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 review

 

A lesson that you don't need to be showy to be brilliant

Superb keyboard ; Great speakers ; Excellent build quality

The USB-C isn't Thunderbolt 3 ; Purist design may seem feature-light

The Surface Laptop 3 is everything a laptop should be, if not everything a lot of modern laptops are today

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 initial review: More power and a new 15-inch version, too

 

The Surface Laptop 3 15 is a proper MacBook Pro rival and a top addition to the Surface family.

New 15-inch size ; PixelSense displays still brilliant ; Still great-looking ; USB-C very welcome

Thunderbolt 3 omission silly ; No SD card reader ; No Alcantara fabric version of the 15-inch

The Surface Laptop 3 15 is a proper MacBook Pro rival and a top addition to the Surface family, while the revised 13-incher does just enough to keep pace with rivals

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (13.5in) review: A mighty fine laptop gets even better

 

A fast, lightweight, good-looking laptop, the Microsoft Surface Book 3 is a superb machine at a competitive price

Has USB Type-C, at last ; Light and attractive ; Superb keyboard and touchpad

Only one, non-Thunderbolt USB Type-C port ; Standard sRGB display

But these are relatively small complaints. If you want a laptop for work and, maybe, a little play, the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is a brilliant option with very few significant shortcomings.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 hands-on review: Powerfully tempting

 

A 10nm upgrade and some new features make this laptop one to watch

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 review: A beautiful miss

 

The Surface Laptop 3 now comes in a 15-inch model, which looks quite similar to what you get with the 13-inch version. But new here is a new all-aluminum finish and a custom AMD Ryzen processor. Can Microsoft's new clamshell compete with laptops like...

Large 3:2 display ; Build quality is rock solid ; Comfortable keyboard and touchpad ; Stays quiet and cool

Microsoft's Surface Laptop 3 gives AMD a shot at laptop glory, but it misses

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15-inch (Core i7) review: This is the one you should buy

 

Microsoft's Surface Laptop 3 with Intel's 10th-gen Core i7 processor, Ice Lake, combines exemplary performance with all-day battery life.

All-day battery life ; Excellent performance ; Bright, beautiful screen

Keyboard isn't quite as good as in previous models ; No Thunderbolt I/O tech behind its USB-C ports

Picking apart keyboard subtleties usually boils down to the spacing between the keys (the pitch), and the amount of play in the keys (the key travel). Surface keyboards are generally quite good, and the Surface Laptop 3 keyboard is no exception....

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (13-inch) review

 

The Surface Laptop 3 delivers on a familiar pitch for what a good laptop should offer, executed in intense detail and a clean sense of style.

Slick design ; Clean software

Lacks a dedicated GPU ; Limited ports

Review: Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 – 15-inch AMD Ryzen

 

The new Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 has a big brother – a 15-inch using an AMD Ryzen 3000-series 5-3580U or 7-3780U System-on-a-Chip. Moving the Microsoft

Imposing looks;Brilliant screen;Easier to service but few user-serviceable parts inside;AMD Ryzen 5 processor has no downsides

Shallow keyboard – not as good a Laptop 2;Battery life – not as good as Laptop 2;Not really user-replaceable M2 2230 SSD;Soldered in ram;Expensive – that will lead to looking at other brands

MICROSOFT 13.5" Intel® Core™ i5 Surface Laptop 3 - 256 GB, Black

 

Great screen, very responsive due to the SSD, battery life is good, can be charged with USB-C chargers as well as the magnetic Surface connector, touchpad is as good as a Macbook, build quality is good and machine is very light

Linux support is poor - no driver support. Otherwise not much to add
