Microsoft shows Surface 4 laptop – News

Microsoft comes with a refresh of its Surface laptops. The design remains unchanged, but the battery, among other things, will last longer.

The Surface Laptop 4 comes in different versions depending on the processor and screen size.

13,5 inch

With this screen size you can choose between an AMD Ryzen 5 4680U (with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage at 1,129 euros the cheapest edition) or an Intel Core i5-1135G7 or i7-1185G7 (11th generation) with 8 or 16 Gigabytes of RAM.

15 inch

If you want a slightly larger screen, you can choose between an AMD Ryzen 7 4980U (8GB RAM and 256 or 512 GB storage) or an Intel Core i7-1135G7 (with 16 GB RAM and 512 GB storage). The latter is also the most expensive edition at 1,849 euros including VAT. The devices will be available from April 27.

All devices have a 720p webcam, Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi 6 and SSD storage. The main limitation is in the number of connections. In addition to a 3.5mm headphone jack, the device only has one USB-C and one USB-A (the regular USB port) connection. This can be expanded via a dock that can be connected to the Surface Connect port.

The main novelty of the devices is that the battery lasts longer. For the heaviest model (15 inches with Intel CPU), that is up to 16.5 hours. For the lightest model (13.5 inches with AMD CPU), that is even 19 hours.
