The New Surface Laptop 4

Microsoft launched the Surface Laptop 4 last night, which is available in 13.5 and 15-inch specifications. It supports Pixel Sense touch screens. The keyboard has continued the choice of two materials of Odyllan and metal, and launched an ice crystal blue color scheme. From April 15th, Surface Laptop 4 will be the first to be sold in the United States, Canada and Japan, with a starting price of US$999.

Surface Laptop 4 has two processor options, the 11th generation Intel Core processor and AMD Ryzen mobile processor integrated Radeon graphics Microsoft Surface customized version (octa-core). According to Microsoft officials, these two specifications have cooperated to customize the chip, which can provide longer battery life while improving performance.

Free Earbuds, New Webcam

The Surface Laptop 4 is available to preorder now, with orders shipping April 15. Microsoft says US buyers who order from Microsoft or Best Buy before April 15 will receive a free set of Surface Earbuds.

Also coming to the Surface line is a short list of new accessories. The Surface Headphones 2 Plus for Business is a professional riff on the Surface Headphones. It starts shipping later in April, for $300. Coming in June, two new headsets, from the Microsoft Modern line, will be available in USB and wireless versions at $50 and $100, respectively.

Surface Laptop 4 Design

No changes here. The Surface Laptop 4 adopts the design of its predecessor. It has a clean, understated elegance and is available in either anodized aluminum or the unique blend of a metal lid and matching Alcantara fabric deck.

Centered on the lid is a mirrored Microsoft logo, one of few elements that help the Surface Laptop 4 differentiate itself from the MacBook Air. Another is the stunning colors, especially the Sandstone and new Ice Blue options. Those hues extend from the lid to the deck and even the keyboard keys.

Surface Laptop 4 Display

Same design, same display. It may not be OLED but the 13.5-inch and 15-inch, 2496 x 1664-pixel touchscreen displays are reliably gorgeous, with a detailed, colorful and bright picture. I suspect the screen on the Surface Laptop 4 will be just as good, and I'm eager to stream some Cobra Kai on the new model when my review unit arrives.
