The Microsoft Surface Laptop is a real notebook without the gimmicks, a departure from the 2-in-1 hybrids like the Surface Book or the Surface Pro 4. The 13.5-inch device is geared to go along with its new Windows 10 S operating system.

The company’s new OS was designed to be optimized for better performance and security because it’s marketed towards the education sector.The Windows 10 S is meant to be partnered with low-end hardware to bring a budget-friendly device that students and/or students can afford.

Ironically, the Surface laptop will have a starting price of $999 (around Php50,000), which can be a little steep for the casual users. However, you can choose to opt for a Windows 10 Pro, but for an upgrade fee.

The Microsoft Surface laptop has a 13.5-inch PixelSense screen that has a 2256 x 1504 resolution (201ppi) in a 3:2 aspect ratio. It is also has a 10-point multi-touch capability and it’s compatible with the Surface Pen. There’s also a 720p webcam and a set of essential ports. Microsoft also added Omnisonic speakers with Dolby Audio Premium that are hidden beneath the keyboards, concealing the speaker grills.

Microsoft used Alcantara fabric on the Surface laptop’s keyboard, a material choice first seen on the Surface Pro 4 Keyboard. The keys are, of course, backlit and have a 1.5mm travel distance.

The company also promised 14.5 hours of battery life which could definitely rival the MacBook Air. Keeping everything cool are the integrated vapor chambers into the aluminum case on the back of the laptop.


The new Microsoft Surface laptop will come in Cobalt Blue, Graphite Gold, Platinum, and a weird new color variant, Burgundy. You can pre-order now via Microsoft’s website. Like what I have said earlier, the device will have a starting price of $999. Check the configurations list below.
