p Meet Microsoft’s Surface Laptop, a portable computer made for basically everyone and meant to take on high-design competitors like the Apple MacBook.
The new Surface Laptop is lightweight, ships with the newly announced Windows 10 S (but can be upgraded to Windows 10 Pro), and includes many familiar details featured on other Microsoft hardware products.
The device is positioned comfortably between the Surface Pro ($900), with its hybrid laptop-tablet design, and the premium Surface Book ($1,500).
Additionally, the Surface Laptop can perform many—but not all—of the same operations as the Surface Studio ($3,000) including being able to connect to the Surface Pen and Surface Dial accessories.
It’s still unclear if the Surface Laptop is a device you need to run out and buy right now, since we haven’t had a chance to check it out, but on paper it looks great.
The device sports a 13.5-inch, 2256 x 1504 resolution display at the same 3:2 aspect ratio as the Surface Book.
