Microsoft Laptop 3 13.5" Overview

The platinum Microsoft 13.5" Multi-Touch Surface Laptop 3 features a portable, lightweight design with a 10th Gen Intel Core processor, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), Bluetooth 5.0, a larger touchpad, and a USB Type-C port. The Surface Laptop 3 also features an Alcantara fabric-covered palm rest.

Powered by a 10th Gen 1.2 GHz Intel Core i5-1035G7 quad-core processor and 8GB of LPPDR4x RAM, the Surface Laptop 3 can efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. For storing your photos, videos, and files, it's equipped with a 128GB SSD, which provides you with fast boot and load times. Its 13.5" PixelSense display, driven by integrated Intel Iris Plus Graphics, features a 2256 x 1504 resolution and ultra-slim bezels for your viewing comfort. It also supports multi-touch so you can utilize touch gestures and commands within Windows 10 Home to enhance its accessibility and efficiency.

Connect to the internet via Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and pair compatible peripherals with Bluetooth 5.0 technology. Microsoft added a USB Type-C port for additional connectivity. You'll also still have the USB Type-A port for older devices. Should you need more storage space or functionality, you can add an optional docking station to its Surface Connect connector for more ports. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam with Windows Hello sign-in, integrated dual far-field microphones, Omnisonic speakers, and a 3.5mm mic and headphone combo jack. Windows 10 Home is the installed operating system.

Surface Laptop 3

USB Type-C

Microsoft has added the USB Type-C port for added connectivity.

Design and Comfort

The Surface Laptop 3 features an Alcantara fabric-covered palm rest, which provides you with a comfortable typing experience. The Surface Laptop 3 also has a larger touchpad than its predecessor.

Portability and Performance

Weighing in at 2.79 pounds, the Surface Laptop 3 is lightweight yet packs a powerful Intel processor needed to handle demanding applications. Also, it can last up to 11.5 hours of video playback, so you can work or relax all day long.

Touch

Easily and naturally navigate through applications and programs within Windows 10 with the touch of your fingertips thanks to the 13.5" PixelSense display with touch capabilities. It has a 2256 x 1504 resolution and thin bezels for a more immersive viewing experience. The screen also supports the Surface Pen (available separately).

Windows 10

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.

Cortana

Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Stellar laptop

By John
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-04-27

My laptop before this was a 13 Dell XPS 7390, and even with an i5 versus the Dell's i7, this device is really impressive. The keyboard is quiet and responsive, the display is bright and easy to look at, and it's super light and portable. Under heavy load, I can sometimes make out some fan noise, but it has to be some considerable processing for me to hear it. Video and graphics are more than up to the task for things like Zoom, Minecraft, and YouTube. It's a great device!

Looks great, does the job well.

This is a very nice laptop with a high resolution touchscreen. With the 16GB RAM, it's fast under pressure. It's an attractive slim metal design, but not light, imo. The speakers provide very good sound and the camera is good too. I bought it for work, online teaching and course development and don't think I'll be disappointed with it's capability. I do wish the screen was matte finish though, and didn't know it was so glossy. Reflections must add to eyestrain when using it for hours. What are manufacturers thinking with these mirror surfaces that reflect so badly? I'd forgo eye-popping sharp colorful images for less eye fatigue. Another downside is that it has only two USB ports, one Type A and one Type C, so buy a hub with it. There is no ethernet port, so you might consider that when you buy a hub. There is an SD card slot and a headphone jack. The DC charging jack is a slim 3/4 long magnetically attached tab. It's an innovation that is good in that it doesn't stick out like most, but it can slip off if bumped or the laptop is repositioned. There is some type of Microsoft dock available that I didn't consider, but I suppose that has additional ports. Nice machine overall.

We really like the Microsoft Surface Laptops. We have three of them. No comparison between these and a traditional laptop. The quality is self evident.

this microsoft laptop is not the most powerful one but it doesn't have to be. Since this machine comes from microsoft it is well optimized for windows with only basic useful features. It doesn't have all bloatware like other laptops have preinstalled. Microsoft surface laptop is good workhorse for everyday work. Build quality is nice and premium. I would recommend to buy this laptop to people how doesn't require extremely powerful laptops.

Is this laptop ideal for editing photos and video?
Asked by: Amanda
It will come down to how heavy the files you are working with are. It can definitely do photo editing but for video editing, it might struggle with any high resolution/high bitrate video.

After formatting the drive it should be a capacity of: 238.4Gb. Windows 10 64 bit operating system takes 20Gb. So I would approximate 218.4 Gb. With updates you might be slightly lower.
