Microsoft recently launched the Surface Laptop, a brand-new laptop running the Windows 10 S operating system.

The Surface Laptop

The new device is simply called Surface Laptop, not Surface CloudBook as originally rumored. The new Windows 10 S operating system it runs is limited to specially packaged Windows Store apps.

 

Surface Laptop specs

The Surface Laptop features a 13.5-inch PixelSense display and is available in four colors: platinum, burgundy, cobalt blue, and graphite gold. It’s also super portable, weighing only 2.76 pounds (1.2kg) with a thickness of 14.47mm towards the back and 9.9mm up front. Microsoft focused its efforts on making the display look amazing, resulting in a screen with 3.4 million pixels and a 3:2 aspect ratio.

The Surface Laptop is powered by an i5/i7 CPU, has up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512 GB SSD. While there is, unfortunately, no USB Type-C port, it does finally end rumor that Microsoft would give up on its signature Surface port for this connector.

One of the more interesting design choices found in the Surface Book is its Alcantara-covered keybpard, a fabric that Microsoft has also used on other Surface accessories such as the Surface Pro 4 keyboard that was sold separately.

The new Surface Laptop starts at $999 in the US. The most expensive Surface Laptop models cost $2,199 You can already pre-order the new laptop on Microsoft’s website.

Here are its four available configurations:
