With great battery life, smooth performance and a beautiful screen, this would the best notebook PC around if it wasn’t for the lack of ports
The Surface Laptop is Microsoft’s first true Surface-brand notebook – following the company’s Surface Pro tablet and the Surface Book laptop-tablet hybrid – but there’s something very unMicrosoft about it: great design.
Functionally, it’s about as standard as a notebook gets in 2017. There’s a full keyboard and precision trackpad and a small array of ports. The screen doesn’t detach but it is 10-point multi-touch and it works with the Surface Pen stylus. But aesthetically the Surface Laptop offers something new.
