    My first ever Surface. Loving it!

    This is the first Surface product I have ever owned, and I must say, I am quite impressed!

    The laptop itself is quite light, but feels quite premium at the same time. The trackpad is smooth and buttery, while also not making much noise when clicking. The keys have nice travel and are also quiet. The Surface has a nice screen, and although not as bright as other comparable laptops, it's not bad at all. The laptop has a long-lasting battery too. I can get a good 12-15 hours or so while multitasking.

    This laptop can be pretty pricey for what features you get compared to other laptops on the market, but I feel you are paying extra for the premium build, durability, and portability.

    One major downside of the Surface Laptop is the lack of ports. It only has one each of USB-A and USB-C. Unfortunately, it also doesn't have Thunderbolt 4. The lack of ports means you likely would need to invest in an external hub, especially if you have multiple peripherals you want to connect.

    Pros:

    -portable and lightweight

    -quite durable

    -nice vertical 3:2 screen ratio

    -the Sandstone color is really unique

    -long battery life between charges

    -fast charging with included power supply: 0% to 80% in an hour

    Cons:

    -lack of ports

    -can get a bit warm when multitasking

    Highly Recommend.

    This is my second Surface Laptop and 3rd Surface product. While you will get better specs at a lower cost from other computers, I could not recommend the Surface products more. Great build quality and very few issues. You will pay more, but as far as Windows PCs go, this is the Apple of the category.

    Best balance for Portability and Power.

    Exactly what I was looking for, 16 GB of Memory and a 6 Core Processor. You cannot beat it for the Price, the compact size and portability. The Keyboard and TrackPad are amazing. A definite Win in every catagory

    Great upgrade

    I had an original Surface Laptop for work, and bought the Surface Laptop 4 to replace it. I'm really happy with the purchase, same great keyboard, touchpad, and screen, with a much faster processor.

    My only minor complaint is the laptop can get a little warm during use.

    Best laptop

    This laptop has everything I ever wanted. The keyboard is great and the touch screen and mouse pad are so intuitive. No slowdowns and the new Microsoft OS is a fresh change. I Bought "Open box excellent" and it came perfect. Think the last owner didn't like the color, but the blue is beautiful and looks more silver. Best 1400 I spent on a laptop, glad BestBuy hasd so many sales this year.

    Great laptop for college.

    While it doesn't seem to have changed much from the Surface Laptop 3 based purely on the design aspect, I think it is the most functional laptop that I have ever owned.

    It doesn't slow down when there are too many tabs open, and it can handle a decent amount of gaming. If you are in college and looking for a laptop to do your work on, this laptop will do the job just fine. Plus it's rather portable.

    Happy with my new laptop.

    This is my time trying a Microsoft laptop. I was surprise how easy it was to connect and transfer software and data into it. My previous 5 years old laptop felt just very old when compare with my new laptop.My only advise is not get the 13.5 inches but the 15 inches. Otherwise, I am a very happy customer.

    Compact Powerhouse, Faster Than Gaming Laptops!

    This newly updated Microsoft Surface 4 laptop is a superb combination of technology and functionality which will outperform almost all existing laptops thanks to its incorporation of a new 8 core AMD Ryzen 7 processor with integrated Radeon RX Vega 8 graphic processing unit in a very compact form. Visually, the Surface 4 is an elegant, minimalist design with a very slim, beautiful matt black brushed aluminum body. The excellent full-size keyboard has white backlighting. The 15.1” touch screen seems larger because it incorporates a classic 6:4 format. The solid-state hard drive and low power needs of the LED display, CPU and GPU make possible up to 17.5 hours of silent operation. The audio quality of the Omnisonic speakers with Dolby Atmos sound processing is amazing. Overall, the impression is very sophisticated and high tech.

    Microsoft introduced the Surface product line in 2012 as a Windows tablet. It was the company’s first product which incorporated the Windows operating system and their own hardware. The first products ran tablet-only Windows RT. The early models were somewhat under-powered with limited storage and poor battery life. The next generation added a supplemental keyboard and more processing power, becoming 2-in-1 tablet/laptops. In 2015 the Surface 3 models were the first to run the full Windows operating system and standard programs. That Surface 3 lineup included the first true laptop. But not until the latest version, the Surface 4, did the product finally achieve parity in power and functionality with competitive laptops by incorporating bigger displays, very fast microprocessors, large SSD storage and superior battery life.

    Consider this outstanding combination of features:

    • Microsoft Surface 4 Laptop (Model 5W6-00024)

    • AMD Ryzen 7 4980U CPU 8 core/16 thread, 15w max power load

    • 8 core/16 hyper-thread processor runs at speeds from 2.0 to 4.4 GHz

    • 64 bit Windows 10 Home 20H2 operating system

    • Integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 GPU uses shared system memory

    • 8 GB DDR4 high efficiency RAM primary memory

    • 512 GB SK-Hynix SSD fast hard drive

    • 15.1” IPS LED-backlit PixelSense touch-screen display with 2496 x 1664 (201 PPI) resolution

    • Windows ink workspace/Surface Pen support

    • Omnisonic full-range stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos audio processing

    • 720 HD f2.0 Webcam with dual far field microphones

    • 3D IR Camera for Windows Hello facial and gesture recognition

    • Intel AX200 wireless LAN 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax (WiFi 6 support), WPA3 security

    • Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity

    • USB-C video output

    • 1 USB 3.1 Type C (up to 5 GBps)

    • 1 USB 3.0 Type A

    • 40 pin Surface Connect port for charging and accessory connections

    • Headphone out/Microphone in 3.5 mm port

    • 45.82 Watt-Hour Lithium Ion battery – 17.5 hour operating life

    • 65 watt/15.0 volt/4.0 amp charging unit with USB Type A 5.0 volt/1.0 amp charging port and 101” cord length

    • Very slim and compact: 13.4” wide x 9.6” deep x 0.6” thick

    • Lightweight: only 3.4 pounds

    • One year warranty on parts and labor

    So how does this laptop perform? Flawlessly!

    It seemed very fast when I was using it, so I ran two well-regarded benchmark programs (Novabench and PC Mark 10) on both it and four of my other computers to determine their relative performance. These tests measure both CPU (general processing) and GPU (graphics processing) so they give a good overall measure of a computer’s speed. The first was a base model office desktop with an AMD A6 (A6-7310) CPU (comparable in speed to an Intel i3 CPU), no separate GPU and 8 GB RAM. The next was a nicely-equipped all-in-one computer with a 6th generation Intel i5 (6400T), Intel 530 GPU and 12 GB RAM. The third was a 2018-era gaming laptop with an 8th generation Intel i5 (8300H), Nvidia 1050Ti GPU and 8 GB RAM. The fourth was a 2019-era two-in-one laptop/tablet with AMD’s Ryzen 5 and Radeon Vega 8 GPU and 8 GB RAM. Finally, I ran the same tests on the Microsoft Surface 4 laptop. All computers were well-maintained, running identical Windows 10 versions with no other programs active. Here are the results (higher is faster):

    Novabench Results:

    Office desktop (AMD A6, 8 GB ram): 636 (Base case)

    All-in-One (i5-6400, 12 GB ram): 858 (35% faster than base)

    Gaming laptop (i5-8300H, 8 GB ram)): 2028 (219% faster than base)

    Two-in-One tablet/laptop (AMD Ryzen 5 3500U, 8 GB ram): 1425 (124% faster than base)

    Microsoft Surface 4 (AMD Ryzen 7 4980U, 8 GB ram): 2981 (369% faster than base)

    PC Mark 10 Results:

    Office desktop (AMD A6, 8 GB ram): 1451 (Base case)

    All-in-One (i5-6400, 12 GB ram): 2300 (59% faster than base)

    Gaming laptop (i5-8300H, 8 GB ram)): 4603 (217% faster than base)

    Two-in-One tablet/laptop (AMD Ryzen 5 3500U, 8 GB ram): 3698 (155% faster than base)

    Microsoft Surface 4 (AMD Ryzen 7 4980U, 8 GB ram): 5096 (251% faster than base)

    OK, that’s a lot of numbers and technical jargon but the bottom line is that you will find this slim Surface 4 capable of out-performing anything you currently own (unless you have a really geeked-out special system) and very smooth in running any games or software you may ever buy. Put this elegant notebook to work on most business software and it will never even break a sweat. Use it for photo or video editing and it will calmly do whatever you want, no drama. And you need not hesitate to fire up a graphics-intensive game because it has the power to handle even that chore easily. It is certainly faster than most dedicated gaming laptops made prior to 2020!

    The Omnisonic speakers and Atmos sound system on this laptop are surprisingly good. I listened to some of my favorite albums from Spotify and the speakers (although tiny) were much better than typical for laptops. They are mounted at the hinge, have decent volume and good stereo separation – certainly good enough for watching Netflix or YouTube videos.

    A major plus for this Surface 4 device is the outstanding battery life. I always test laptops by streaming Netflix series on battery power with a bright screen and high speaker volume. The combination of modem usage, video rendering, screen lighting and speaker volume usually drains most laptop batteries in less than two hours. But this Microsoft lasted almost twelve hours before exhausting the charge! That is long enough for five full movies and certainly would suffice a traveler for even the longest international flights. You can thank the ultra-efficient and power-miser AMD CPU and GPU for that amazing performance.

    Another advantage for travelers is the compact size (less than 14” wide and 0.6” thick) and very light weight – about 3.4 pounds. The power cube is small (about 3” x 2” x 1”) so it won’t take up much precious space or weight in your briefcase/backpack. The notebook is nicely balanced with a great lighted keyboard and big touchpad, so those who like to literally use their laptop on their lap will be pleased. The Intel wireless LAN is compatible with the latest WiFi 6 standard and provides excellent, high speed connection to your network. Similarly, the Bluetooth 5.0 gave a stable connection at up to 35 feet. The 3.5 mm audio port is convenient if you like to use wired headsets or earbuds.

    The 15.1” touchscreen display has superb resolution, high speed video rendering and HDR content support with very good color saturation. The 6:4 screen ratio is taller than the 16:9 or 16:10 ratios seen on many laptops and actually offers considerably more screen area (about 19% more) than the 16:9 screens. This is an advantage when working with Word documents or spreadsheets. It also supports the Surface Pen for graphic editing, although I don’t think that a laptop is the best vehicle for that function.

    The Microsoft Hello facial recognition and Cortana both work well, as does the webcam and built-in microphones. I suggest that you turn off the setting which requires entering a password when waking from sleep (but I suggest that change for all Windows PCs!)

    What are the possible weak points or purchase issues to consider?

    • I would have preferred at least two Type A and two Type C USB ports. I prefer to use a mouse rather than a trackpad and often need to use a flash drive so having only one USB port is an issue. (I solved it by buying a very nice Microsoft Bluetooth mouse from Best Buy for just $15. See photo.)

    • While the keyboard is excellent, it does not have a separate numeric keypad. However, that would have required a somewhat wider unit or reducing the size of the other key, so its absence is understandable.

    • It would have been nice to have a form-fitting cloth carrying case included (as many other notebook brands provide.)

    • When you set up your new Surface 4 laptop you will need to download some software (e.g., Open GL, Dolby Atmos) and update the drivers. There are several free software suites which will take care of those tasks for you.

    • Some might feel that the 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB SSD could be larger but the performance results I noted above show that the RAM is adequate. The hard drive is big enough for most purposes and can be supplemented by an external hard drive plugged into the USB Type C port.

    • The optional Intel 11th generation Core i7 microprocessor allows a larger RAM and SSD configuration and may be a bit faster but at a considerably larger cost and much less battery life.

    But these are really just minor quibbles. When you consider all of its power and functionality you will agree that the price is very reasonable. I can enthusiastically recommend the new Microsoft Surface 4 laptop for both serious stay-at-home power users and for those who need a perfect travel companion.

    Premium Laptop, Strong Performance, Great Battery

    /////////// First Impressions and Features ///////////

    The Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 15” is definitely a premium laptop. It is one of the rare laptops where its hardware and software come from under the same roof. It shares the look and feel of its predecessor, and I have no issues with that at all. This is my first Surface Laptop (I currently own a Surface Pro 3, still kicking!). It is equipped with a Ryzen 7 8 core/16 thread APU, 512GB SSD and 8GB DDR4 RAM. The unit feels premium and sturdy, the hinge that holds the screen upright is very strong, and the backlit keyboard is probably one of the best keyboards I’ve ever typed on in a portable laptop. The cool metal feels smooth on your palms as you type and the touchpad registers all single and multi-touch gestures without a hitch. The panel is a touchscreen and I feel that it won’t be utilized very much, but it does become very handy when you need it. Trying to buy that elusive gpu online before everyone else? With a touchscreen, you are now the fastest ‘add-to-cart’ online shopper this side of the Mississippi!

    Contrary to what most others say about the thick bezels, I actually appreciate them. Where else are you going to hold the screen to open it up or make tilt adjustments without touching the panel itself? It’s one of those things that we take for granted as we prioritize looks over functionality. Ok, maybe they can be shrunk down a tad...but it doesn't bother me. One of the most satisfying aspects of the Surface Book is the display’s 3:2 aspect ratio, with a resolution of 2496x1664. From a general use and productivity standpoint, the vertical real estate gained allows the natural viewing of websites, documents and the like. Think about it. Most physical documents are printed in portrait, so there is a welcoming familiarity once you begin using the laptop. It is most definitely refreshing.

    The I/O is sparse on the laptop, having only a single USB-C, USB-A and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The only other means of connectivity is the Microsoft proprietary charge port that can also double as an I/O port with their proprietary dock. The limited amount of I/O helps keep the laptop thin, as evident in other laptops designed today, and the only way to expand I/O is to purchase a separate docking station or USB hub. The USB-C can also double as a charge port as well if you have a means of charging it that way. I own a monitor with a USB-C connection that acts as both a 65W charger and hub. This is a perfect complement to the Surface Laptop 4.

    /////////// Processing Performance ///////////

    A big omission is the use of the newest Ryzen 5000 Series mobile processors for this latest generation of Surface Laptop. This is an automatic star deduction in my book. Microsoft pinned the last generation’s Ryzen with the latest silicon to come from Intel. That being said, the Ryzen 7 4000 Surface Edition mobile processor is still a great everyday mobile APU. It is an 8 core/16 thread 7nm that should satisfy most users and their processing needs. The CPU core speeds will behave differently on battery versus when plugged in, and I’ve provided a table of the tests I ran for each power mode using Cinebench R23:

    <<- On Battery, 4 Modes ->>

    Battery Saver (Single 2GHz, Multi 1.4GHz)

    Recommended (Single 2GHz, Multi 1.6GHz)

    Better Performance (Single 2.9GHz, Multi 2.4GHz)

    Best Performance (Single 4.2GHz, Multi 2.9GHz)

    <<- Plugged In, 3 Modes ->>

    Recommended (Single 3.95GHz, Multi 2.5GHz)

    Better Performance (Single 4.3GHz, Multi 2.4GHz) (dipped as low as 1.5GHz in Multi, thermal throttling?)

    Best Performance (Single 4.3GHz, Multi 2.7GHz) (dipped as low as 1.3GHz in Multi, thermal throttling?)

    A couple of things to note. Maybe I’m stating the obvious here, but if you’re looking for top performance out of this laptop, you’re going to have to plug it in. When plugged in, the base single core speeds are increased almost by 100%. The laptop does not need to worry about battery conservation and can allow the cores to run full blast. The other thing I noticed is that when plugged in and running multi-core tests, the speeds start off strong but begin to taper off. I took note of the temps during testing and the core temps held under 70 degrees C, so I don’t know if it’s thermally throttling or something else relating to its TDP. When running off the battery, the speeds and performance are expected; the APU is intentionally limited to conserve battery. Still at Best Performance, you can squeeze out a single core speed of about 4GHz, which is impressive.

    /////////// Graphics Performance ///////////

    The Ryzen 7 Mobile is baked in with Radeon graphics. The graphics had no trouble running games like Roblox. I had my daughter give it a test run (she plays on my desktop PC with a dedicated GPU, for reference) and she gave it two thumbs up. I know, Roblox isn’t a demanding game, but it’s nice to know she can Roblox on-the-go on a PC rather than on a smartphone. So I took it to the other extreme and installed Shadow of the Tomb Raider for another test run. Running the in-game benchmark tool, I was able to squeeze out 13fps. This is with all graphics settings set to the lowest setting. During the benchmark, the APU shot up 91 degrees C! Terrifying. For my last test, I decided on a middle ground with Halo MCC. This was actually playable! Frame rates were around 30-40fps and the APU temps were hovering around 67 degrees C. Not bad at all. I had the laptop plugged in while gaming and did notice that the laptop became warm to the touch with the fans quietly spooled up, but nothing to be alarmed about.

    /////////// Battery Performance ///////////

    Ultimately if you decide to go with the Ryzen APU, you reap the benefits of the 7nm process which equates to lower power consumption and ultimately longer run times. This will be evident as you begin to configure your Laptop 4 with either Intel or AMD. If you go Intel, your battery times are reduced by as much as two hours. Intel Tiger Lake uses a 10nm process on their mobile chips which results in more power use. The Intel chips are fast in both processing and integrated graphics and may have advances in their silicon process, but you lose out in runtime. And it costs more, too. From the standpoint of costs and battery life, Ryzen would be the way to go. Just something to think about.

    Speaking of battery life, Microsoft states a battery life on this 15” Ryzen model to about 17.5 hours. We don’t know how they arrived at that number, but my regular use brought about 11-13 hours with the battery set to Recommended mode. That’s essentially a full day before reaching for the wall charger. You can easily mitigate battery usage by reducing screen brightness as well as disabling keyboard backlighting and turning off Bluetooth if you’re not already using it. Also, the more applications you have running in the background, the more battery will be consumed.

    /////////// Summary ///////////

    At its price point, it will have to trade blows with Dell, Lenovo and even the upcoming Samsung for ultra portable PC laptops, and many may find the other brands more visually appealing if we consider all their models comparably equipped. It boils down to preference and what is value priced at the moment. But again, there is something to be said about a company that designs both the hardware and the software of a device and even collaborates with chip makers like AMD to make a premium product, and so I recommend the Surface Laptop 4 15” Ryzen Edition as a buy. It’s a shame that Microsoft didn’t go with the nextgen of Ryzen processors. Apple is at the forefront of hardware and software, with their new M1 chip being all the rave at the moment, and is another alternative to the Surface Laptop 4 if you don’t mind running MacOS. Another avenue would be gaming laptops that offer much more performance at the same price point, but are larger, heavier and will need to be plugged in most of the time. I recommend that you think about your daily use cases and make a decision on a certain type of laptop from there.

    Very solid machine

    I am someone that I would describe as techy, but at the same time, not overly so. The TL;DR of this review is that that is the type of person this laptop will suit best.

    PROCESSOR AND PERFORMANCE

    I have two laptops in my house. One is my work computer and the other is my personal laptop, which this is a replacement for. My personal laptop was a 2010 value laptop and there's no comparison between it and this. Things are a little closer with the company supplied laptop. That has a 2015 core i5 processor and an SSD as well. I thought maybe they'd be fairly comparable, but the Surface Laptop 4 is soooo much snappier and responsive. The extra 5 years (these have 2020 Ryzens in them) and this being more on the level of an i7 make the two processors feel night and day. Microsoft went for processing power on this and it shows. Very fast in everything it does. Opening programs, installing them, running large Excel sheets, etc. I can't compare it to Surface Laptop 3s as I never had one, but compared to my decent work laptop, this is much better. One thing to note though is don't get this expecting it to be a gaming laptop. You can play some of the less demanding games on it, but if you like 4k @ 120hz+, you've come to the wrong machine, though I'm sure someone with those tastes knew that. Gaming that would probably work well on here would be streaming like Microsoft's Xcloud or Google Stadia. Something where the computer isn't being tasked with rendering the game. Thanks to Wifi 6 built in, you could stream games. Speaking of, wifi 6 is amazing. My phone gets 250 to 300 Mbps downloads and uploads over my gig speed wifi. I ran the test on the Surface Laptop 4 and hit over 400 Mbps both ways, which is a massive gain. I wish everything had wifi 6.

    BATTERY LIFE:

    This laptop has great battery life. I charged it the night I got it and have been using it each night over the last 5 days or so and still haven't had to recharge it. That's a win in my book. Every other laptop I've ever used gave me maybe 7 or 8 hours.

    STORAGE AND RAM:

    Storage is ample with a 512GB SSD in mine. I love the SSD. A cold boot and this is up and at your desktop in maybe 20 seconds. It's fast. No complaints here. As far as RAM though, I do wish there were more. It's a little light at 8GB and considering a lot of top end phones carry around that, I wish there was more on a machine expected to do more. I believe it is upgradable down the line. Plus, this laptop carries a premium price tag so it really should come with a little more.

    USE

    This is a dream to use. Fast, responsive, and has a comfortable, wonderful feeling keyboard to type on. The touchscreen is nice, but admittedly I'm avoiding using it to keep oil streaks off my pristine screen. The color accuracy of the screen is great and it makes video really pop. The only downside I find here is that while it does support HDR, it has to be on certain apps. You can't go on youtube in Edge or Chrome and watch HDR. That's my biggest complaint as everything else about the screen is a thing of beauty. I also enjoy the 3:2 aspect ratio as 16:9 is much more suited to movies and TV.

    The webcam works great for video calls, though I only briefly tested it. Speakers sound good too, though I would encourage anyone to set up a nice set of external speakers. These are laptop speakers after all. You're not going to get a home theater experience from them.

    VERDICT:

    If I could give it 4.5 stars, I would. It's a beautiful laptop that runs exceptionally well. Incredibly polished experience all around. The only things I would knock it for are RAM, though more is available for extra money, and smaller things like a lack of legitimate graphics hardware, or the HDR thing I mentioned previously.

    As I said early on, if you're techy enough to like the finer things in the world of consumer electronics, but not so techy that you're building your own PC or looking for your next gaming laptop, this will be a great laptop for you.

    More Laptop In This Surface 4

    Presentation:

    Opening the package containing the Surface 4 laptop helped me enjoy the upscale packaging that I’m sure Microsoft was aiming for. The employees took there time to make sure every inch of the boxing process was perfect. I took my time to live that moment longer.

    Setup:

    After removing and opening the Surface 4 laptop out of the box I was greeted by Cortana (Microsoft’s personal voice assistant). Cortana walked me through the initial setup and all I had to do was speak and she took care of the setup. The choice to click and manually make the selections is also available.

    Appearance:

    The Surface 4 laptop feels great to handle and weighs less than 5 pounds. I decided on the aluminum Matte black color and it looks fantastic. I don’t see it attracting fingerprints on the housing unless filthy hands get to it but it will be more for my personal use with school. For now I do Zoom meetings for school and the 720p front facing camera is perfect for it.

    The Surface 4 is equipped with a 15 inch crisp, and clear HD display that’s made for just about anything in touchscreen. Movies look amazing and browsing the web in 2496x1664 resolution detail make all the online shopping experience better and safer because I’m at the comfort of my home.

    This is faster than my other laptop from a well known company and it weighs less.

    Negatives:

    Where are the ports Microsoft?

    -No HDMI (not everyone do casting) the HDMI comes handy when and if I’m doing a presentation and easier to setup in my opinion.

    -Only 1 USB port can work but a backup would be nice.

    -Not a 2 in 1. It’s a touchscreen laptop and if it was designed to fold into a tablet I think it would make it more comfortable to have the option.

    Positives:

    -The Surface 4 laptop is fast. This is faster than my 2 years old laptop but I’m not sure it’s 70% faster.

    -The battery holds the charge for a good duration of the day depending on what I’m doing on the laptop.

    -Facial recognition is also a big deal to me. I’m seeing that feature more but I appreciate having it.

    -Keyboard keys are responsive to touch and smooth by not sticking when pressed.

    -Touchscreen is there when I need it. It’s a bonus to have especially when browsing.

    -Atmos Dolby surround sound makes watching a movie on the surface 4 laptop better when you don’t have your Surface buds nearby.

    -Fast charger. It comes with a magnetic fast charger that fully charge in about 2 hours.

    Other Mentions:

    For the tech gurus out there I know the specs might be a big deal.

    512GB SSD

    8GB RAM

    AMD Ryzen processor

    Which is enough for what I’m using it for. If the Surface 4 can’t handle the task I’ll hop on my desktop but for now it fits my need. Small things can make this Surface 4 closer to perfect but I think Microsoft is on the right path elevating there products.

    Now there's competition!

    For a long time there was not a lot of competition for high end (non-gaming) laptops, with the Surface Laptop 4 it looks like things are changing. With the new AMD Ryzen 7 Microsoft Surface Edition processor they claim 17.5 hours of battery life on this model and I didn't quite get there but there was more than enough battery life to get through a long day of work and home use. The touch screen and trackpad were very responsive and the backlit keyboard was a joy to type on. The speakers were loud as well as clear and the build quality felt very premium and balanced in the hand. The usb-c, usb-a and headphone jack ports were all a welcome sight. The only knock I have would be that they didn't go for an exotic feature such as a digital screen button row as I feel that would lead to new and exciting ways to use your laptop. Overall I'm very happy with the Surface Laptop 4 and have no qualms about recommending it to anyone in the market for a higher end laptop.

    Excellent sleek laptop

    This is an excellent laptop with an interesting form factor that will take me some getting use to. I really enjoy the lightweight sleek look of this laptop especially with the 15" screen size.

    If you are looking for a wonderful work or play laptop, I feel like this is the perfect hardware combination with the 8GB of RAM and the 512GB SSD paired with a beefy Ryzen 7 processor. I use Adobe for photo and video work and this laptop handles the sometimes intense processing tasks just fine.

    One thing I did notice was no thunderbolt port which i feel like should come standard nowadays it opens up lots of options. I also noticed the lack of ports on this laptop which isnt necessarily a bad thing because I dont tend to use many usb ports but if you like to connect up lots of things, just know you may need an external port replicator of some sort.

    The battery life on this has been stellar and I'm very happy to say I have yet to run it down in between charges like I tend to do on my other laptops with sub optimal batteries. One thing to note is the battery does not appear to be removable and I dont beleive the RAM is removable or upgradeable either. So if you want the 16GB of RAM, get it up front because there is no adding any additional or swapping it from what I have read thus far.

    All in all, I love this laptop, I think it has great speed, is built well, and provides excellent power with excellent battery life. I would highly recommend it.

    Really pleased with my experience so far

    For some context: I have used many surface products in the past and have been pleased with all of them. In my opinion this is the slam dunk of the bunch for many reasons.

    Pros:

    + The 15inch screen is amazing

    + The Battery life has been stellar

    + I love the keyboard and trackpad

    +Touch screen

    + The internals and the overall design

    Cons:

    - Bezels (they are not intrusive but still)

    - Trackpad (i have it as a pro as well...more on this in the review)

    - No USB-C Thunderbolt support

    - Limited ports (#donglelife)

    I will start with the good and let me just say, this thing is fantastic. I absolutely love my Surface Laptop 4 15" in the two days that I have used it (extensively for work), I am just blown away at how great of a product Microsoft has put out. The battery life has been fantastic, I can't really gauge how many hours I am getting but it is more then 10 and plenty of battery left to go. The Ryzen 7 processor is fantastic and I am pleasantly surprised. I was unsure how it would preform and while I don't use programs to really push the CPU it has preformed great. The keyboard is a delight to type on and the track pad is great as well (I will cover my gripe with the trackpad below). The 3:2 aspect ratio on this 15" screen is incredible. I have never owned a 15" inch laptop and frankly I don't think I would want to go to a 13" inch again. Viewing spreadsheets or emails is an absolute delight. This laptop has absolutely won the award to be my daily driver.

    The very few cons that I have are minutia and frankly things that don't bother me or my performance on the laptop, however, they are still worth noting. This thing has bezels, albeit not large but they are still there. They don't bother me and I don't notice them unless my eye starts to wonder but in 2021 they really shouldn't be here. What should be here, however, is USB-C thunderbolt support and more ports...This has the charging port on the right hand side (which is mag-safe and fantastic), 1 USB-C and 1 USB 3.0 (if I am not mistaken). For me its fine but again, 2021. The trackpad is nice and big but it is more of a square and not a rectangle. Given the amount of space that is on the laptop, I think they could of optimized more of it. My thought behind them not doing it is because your palms, hands and arms have a perfect place to rest when typing....so its a trade off that makes sense to me.

    Overall, I am really enjoying this laptop. Frankly, I love it so much that I recommended it to our IT department for use with the sales team. Its a great product that isn't heavy and gets the job done. Buy it, you won't regret it.

    This is my first Surface Laptop, but so far I love

    This is my first Surface Laptop, but so far I love it. The only thing I wish was that it had somewhere to store the Surface Pen, although, maybe not to many people are using the Pen with the Laptop, and I do wish it would flip all the way around and lay flat, but I guess thats why they make the Surface Book instead. They just didn't have the CPU's/Specs I wanted in those. Oh well, it works for what I want though.

    Great laptop for college.

    While it doesn't seem to have changed much from the Surface Laptop 3 based purely on the design aspect, I think it is the most functional laptop that I have ever owned.

    It doesn't slow down when there are too many tabs open, and it can handle a decent amount of gaming. If you are in college and looking for a laptop to do your work on, this laptop will do the job just fine. Plus it's rather portable.

    Go metal

    I really liked this computer. The metal body provided a much better typing experience than the fabric covers. There was very little flex to the keyboard, the mouse trackpad was fantastic, and the screen was pretty enough. The touchscreen is a nice feature, but if you are someone who uses a stylus, it's not good for much here besides laying down and scrolling with the pen, as trying to draw and do meaningful work with it is difficult with this screen not folding back like a 2-in-1.

    Ultimately returned this because I couldn't stomach the price. It's a premium build quality, and this is probably the closest to a Macbook for performance/value in an ultrabook. This is not meant for gaming as there's no discrete graphics card, but if you are a professional on the move, or student looking for a portable study machine, this might be it.

    Best PC ever.

    Microsoft Surface laptops, tablets, etc are simply the best PC I have ever owned. Everything works all the time. It updates properly with no hassles. Nothing to configure, it all just works.

    An Awesome Machine

    I’ve had my new laptop for nearly a month now, and both the display and performance are outstanding! I replaced an older laptop that was top-of-the-line about four years ago, and the difference is simply amazing. I wanted an AMD chip rather than an Intel one because AMD got better ratings for performance, and I am delighted I did. The build quality is solid — perfect for my home office!

    Can't get external speakers to work.

    I ended up with this laptop when I exchanged the Surface 7 for the Surface 4. It is well worth it. I have 2 Mac Books and this Surface 4 is just as fast and comfortable to use. Very light weight, screen is great and plugs in to external monitor quickly and easily. I am having issues with plugging in external speakers. I can't get them to work, have tried all combinations in setup. This is where the MacBook is superior. Monitors and speakers plug in right away. This is why only 4 stars for the Surface 4

    Great laptop... but battery only lasts me 5 hours

    So far so good.... really loving this laptop. My only problem is I bought it because my laptop didn't meet the battery or storage requirements for my graduate school program so I bought this laptop because the battery was supposed to last "up to 16 hours"... so far it has lasted me 5 hours with my normal use (opening up a few different word documents and the internet at the same time, brightness up, no music or anything playing). Disappointed in the battery life for sure. BUT at least the battery charges super fast (~1.5 hours) so if im at school, I can charge during lunch if need be.

    The laptop was also a bit glitchy right out of the box (shut down internet browser, bottom taskbar kept loading), but no problems since then.

    Other than that, i'm loving the new laptop. I love the keyboard, the mousepad, etc. It's nice and light and love the color.

    Overall, I would recommend, but think the battery life should say "up to 5 hours of normal use" instead of 16.

    Better delivery that from Microsoft itself!

    I got this latest laptop to replace my 6 yr old Surface Book. The Surface Laptop 4 is so much faster and startup is much simpler. I was able to easily get this from Best Buy within 10 days, yet Microsoft would not promise delivery until mid-September- CRAZY! Best Buy delivered when they promised and without issues. My only concern is with Microsoft and all the talk about Windows 11 which may not be compatible with the Laptop 4; then I hear today that Microsoft is planning to announce a much improved laptop in the Fall. Seems like there is an opportunity to establish a generous trade in for buying whatever new laptop Microsoft is planning.

    Disappointed

    After being excited about finding the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 in stock, I was disappointed with the battery life. I was under the impression that I would receive at least 8-10 hours of battery life while checking email and opening 8-10 webpages at a time. I was sadly disappointed that my experience was the total opposite. I only received 3-4 hours of battery life before I had to plug in. Sadly, after many weeks of research, I had no choice but to return Microsoft Surface Laptop 4.

    Not what I was expecting

    I had high hopes for this computer, but at double the ram and processor speed than the Surface Book 1 that it was replacing, it had some issues that I could not overlook. The first was crashing during a zoom call and the lag/hang ups that I experienced with it. The matte black was also not a good choice for me as it showed smudges and fingerprints all over the case. I bought a keyboard slip protector that works great at keeping the keys clean, but I ended up returning the computer and re-up-upgrading to the Surface Studio Laptop. I really like the Studio, but it was an extra thousand dollars than the Laptop 4 with even double the ram and storage, but the battery life on the studio is just horrible. I can't win for trying......

    we had a surace 2 laptop and it was a really good computer; we decided to stay with micro-soft surface products. This is why we chose the surface 4 as our new upgrade. These are great laptops; sure we could have gone with a lesser brand and lower priced one but the micro-soft surface has proven to be a reliable product; we chose to get it from Best buy as we did the surface 2 that we bought several years ago.
