Microsoft Surface Laptop Rivals MacBook Looks

Microsoft announced Surface Laptop, a 13-inch touch screen notebook PC that is lighter than the MacBook Air at just 2.76 pounds. Depending on the configuration it is priced from $999 to $2,199 and comes in four colors. But what makes it feel high end is the signature keyboard covered in luxurious Alcantara material, a quiet and responsive keyset, large precision trackpad, and soft palm rest for typing comfort. Plus, Surface Laptop is engineered to start fast and stay fast with a 7th-generation Intel Core processor and up to 14.5 hours of battery life.

Surface Laptop is being marketed to students, and comes pre-installed with a safer, limited version of Windows called Windows 10 S. Although, buyers are offered a free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. Windows 10 S forces all software downloads to come from the Windows Store where they are first verified for security, and then locally they each run in a safe “container”. This method ensures that Windows 10 S offers the power of full-featured applications, with experiences like the full version of Office 365, including all of the capabilities of Microsoft Word, Excel, OneNote and PowerPoint, among others.

Every detail is crafted to bring new form and function to the classic laptop design. The vibrant 13.5-inch PixelSense Display is optimized for touch and inking for an immersive experience, and the optically bonded Corning Gorilla Glass 3 makes it as durable as it is beautiful. At just 14.47 mm at the back of the device and 9.93 mm thin at the front, and 2.76 pounds, it easily travels everywhere, and offers up to 14.5 hours of battery life to last throughout the day. With its 7th-generation Intel Core processors and PCI-E SSD, Surface Laptop offers fast performance. An innovative thermal management design directly molds the vapor chambers into the bottom chassis, making Surface Laptop run at peak performance while running cool and quiet. OmniSonic speakers discreetly hidden under the keyboard provide Surface Laptop with great sound quality tuned via immersive Dolby Audio Premium. The Surface Dock lets you transform Surface Laptop into a desktop PC connecting up to two 4K displays. Its built-in, front-facing 720p HD camera is ideal for Skype video calls. Surface Laptop supports Surface Pen, as well as Surface Dial off-screen interaction.

The bottom line is Surface Laptop is the notebook Microsoft should have made 5 years ago, but better late than never.
