One and a half years after the Surface Laptop 3 update, Microsoft finally officially announced its successor Surface Laptop 4 tonight. The design of the new product has not changed much. Simply put, it is still just a traditional style notebook with screen touch function, and it will not be deformed. The size is still divided into 13.5 inches and 15 inches as the previous generation, both of which will provide 11th generation Intel processors. The 13.5-inch version, as rumored, will add AMD Ryzen chip-based models like the 15-inch version. But for some unknown reason, Microsoft chose Zen 2 instead of Zen 3 products.
Compared with the previous generation, the Surface Laptop 4 with Intel processors will improve performance by up to 70% and can bring up to 19 hours of battery life. The screen pixel density of the new phones is 201 ppi, and there are also 720p cameras that support Windows Hello, as well as USB-C and USB-A interfaces. The Thunderbolt that many people expected has not yet been introduced, so if you want to use eGPU, it will be a problem, and Microsoft’s decision is probably because of the consideration of the AMD version (thunderbolt is not natively supported).
From April 15th, Surface Laptop 4 will be the first to be sold in the United States, Canada and Japan. The starting price is US$999 (approximately RMB 6,540), which corresponds to a model with a Ryzen 5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. You can choose machines with Core i7 chips, 32GB RAM, and 1TB hard drives in two sizes along the way. The corresponding prices for 13.5-inch and 15-inch are US$2,299 (approximately RMB 15,050) and US$2,399 (approximately RMB 15,700). . If you place an order through the official website or BestBuy.com before the 15th, you can also get Surface Earbuds for free as the first gift.
