Here is the Microsoft Surface Laptop’s review and discussion. Is it worth to buy? Why buy this laptop? We will show you in details.
Time is changing. That’s why Laptop also changing its style and performance day by day. Microsoft Surface is one of the greatest sign to change the computing experience. Recently Microsoft released Microsoft Surface laptop. It is one of the greatest release ever. They have made lots of changes in body and maintained the performance. So, There have lots of good things to discuss.
Everyone is comparing it to “MacBook Air” because it looks like MacBook Air. But, we don’t think that. If you look closely, it has some differences by the design. Actually, it doesn’t matter that it looks like MacBook Air or not.
The most noticeable thing is the fabric. It has fabric on the keyboard side and it looks great. It’s called “Alcantara Fabric”. It covers all the sideways of the keyboard. You will get comfort when you are typing anything. Now, most of the people worrying about the fabric because it could get grimy and nasty. But Microsoft says, “you will be able to wipe away stains“. On the other side classic edge shape also looks good and unique style. So, You will get a premium feel.
This laptop also has the 13.5-inch touchscreen display with 3:2 aspect ratio. It is the thinnest touchscreen ever for Microsoft’s product. The 2,256 x 1,504-pixel resolution will give you the crisp and sharp picture. The pixel looks so dense. So, you will get brighter and sharp quality.
This laptop will give you the best performance. It has a great balance of power and thinness. The 256GB SSD will boost up performance. It also has Intel HD 620 or Iris 640 Graphics GPU. No dedicated GPU added. For “Windows Hello” it has a 720p webcam. It also has long life battery.
