The Surface Laptop 4: Design
- New ice blue is being too bold without touching them nice.
- Bezels are still on the thick side.
The latest surface laptop 4 closes to the minimal designs of procedures.
Which is both a little underwhelming and welcome; I would have love to see that Microsoft has tried a more fundamental change with the design of the Surface laptop, but for now you have to review inside to see what is latest..
The Ice Blue and Platinum 13.5-inch models have a nice touch that makes your wrist feel a little more comfortable resting on the laptop deck. The feeling of the fabric under my wrist was great, although the thought of trying to remove the stain from it has increased my already significant fear of eating and drinking while working out.
This is the first time that Microsoft has introduced a Surface laptop in the Ice Blue color scheme that has been seen before on Microsoft Surface Pro tablets. Compared to many manufacturer’s logos made on modern laptops, it is eye-catching but less garish.
By means of dimensions it is similar to the Surface Laptop 3, with the weight of 2.8 pounds and measuring just 12.1 x 8.8 x 0.6 inches. That makes the Surface Laptop 4 not quite as small as the Dell XPS 13 (11.7 x 8.2 x 0.5 inches) or M1 MacBook Air (12 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches), but it is slim enough to slide into a bag and promptly forget about.
The Surface Laptop 4: Keyboard
- Flat and precise touchpad, and there is a touchscreen, too
Typing on the Surface Laptop 4 gives comfortable feelings than other laptops, thanks to the nice keys around the keyboard. The keys feel comfortable typing, a 1.3mm trip and a nice click with them that helped me avoid rushing out while typing.
The Surface Laptop 4: Display
- Good aspect ratio about 3:2
- More reflective and brighter to catch everyone eyes
The Surface Laptop 4 having 13.5-inch, 2256 x 1504 pixel screen which is attractive, especially if you’re reading, editing or doing a lot of things.
The Surface Laptop 4: Audio
- Dolby Atmos technology
- Loud and clear sound
The main thing around the Surface Laptop 4 speaker is the addition of the Dolby point Atomos technology, claimed by Microsoft, helps to provide extremely accurate sound by bouncing out from under the keyboard and bouncing it is off the screen.
The Surface Laptop 4: Ports
- USB-A, USB-C &headphone jack
- Thunderbolt 4 is not available
Port selection is much easier and better and worse on Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 4. On the right side ports are available as connector for charging purposes, while on the left side you will get a USB-A port, a USB-C port, and a headphone jack.
It’s pleasant to see the standard USB-A on such a modern machine, and by pairing it with USB-C, that thing provide good flexibility to this laptop when it comes to external devices. But it doesn’t support the USB-C port Thunderbolt 4.
The Surface Laptop 4: Webcam
- Perfect images for 720p cam
- Available Windows face logins
The is not much to talk about 720p webcam assembled into the topmost area of the Surface Laptop 4’s screen, moreover, I wish it was a little more interesting. The collision up to 1080p would have been a welcome change (especially for zoom sessions) which really helped keep surface laptops apart from their predecessors, all of which have 720p webcams spread over the display.
The Surface Laptop 4: Battery life
- The Surface Laptop 4 continued nearly 11 hours
Battery life is one of the biggest thing for selling latest level laptop, and for good reason. Its predecessors have fascinated us with their beautiful screens and designs, but when they run on the same charge for a long time, they often lose the competition.
The Surface Laptop 4: Performance
- Intel Core i7 having 11th generation and 16GB of RAM associated with solid performance
- Graphics are classical for 30 fps on less demanding games
Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 4 can handle anything you throw at it during any average Workday. Our review unit’s 11th Gen Intel i7 CPU and 16GB RAM provided easy handling of so many basic tasks including 20+ tabs spread across four Chrome windows and configured in such a way that you could watch thousands of YouTube videos.
