You’ll find a large range of Microsoft Surface laptops when it comes to features and pricing. With the lineup being expanded with new designs for 2019, it’s not easy to zero in on the right one for your needs and budget. To save you some time, we’re bringing you this rundown of the different Microsoft Surface Pro models now available. Read on to decide which Surface computer is right for you.
Surface Laptop 3
The third generation of the Surface Laptop 3 is preparing to launch on Oct. 22, and brings some impressive new features with it. The Surface Laptop 3 features 10th generation Intel processors, a machined aluminum chassis and a new modular design that will make it easier to repair and upgrade. The Surface Laptop 3 will come in both 13.5 and 15-inch screen sizes. The 15-inch model from Buydig.com has a custom AMD Ryzen graphics chip for a very affordable price. Other highlights include comfy keyboards with good travel and long battery life. Microsoft paid a lot of attention to detail with the design of the Surface Laptop 3. For instance, it gave each system a very slight “overbite” between the top and bottom to make the laptops easy to open with one finger. Both the 13-inch and 15-inch Surface Laptop 3 are light. The 13-inch model weighs 2.7 pounds, while the 15-inch version is a very manageable 3.4 pounds. Both versions of the Surface Laptop 3 feature a full-size USB-A port, which is good for plugging in older peripherals. You also get a USB-C port for modern accessories. The 13-inch Surface Laptop 3 is powered by a Quad core Intel 10th-generation processor. You also get Intel Iris 950 graphics. The 15-inch version of the Surface Laptop 3 steps things up to an AMD Ryzen 5 3580U CPU and AMD Radeon Vega 9 or Vega 11 GPU. The latter GPU provides the fastest graphics performance of any laptop in its class, according to Microsoft. The 13-inch and 15-inch versions are both rated for 11.5 hours of battery life. Both will ship on October 22 from Buydig.com.
Surface Pro 6
Although the newer Pro 7 is a bit fresher, the Surface Pro 6 is still a fantastic device. In fact, in the wake of the Pro 7, the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 could still be considered the best 2-in-1 when it comes to sheer value. Given that it’s only about a year old now, the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is hardly outdated. It packs eighth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 CPUs, 8 or 16GB of RAM, and 128GB to 1TB SSDs. The 12.3-inch PixelSense touch displays are gorgeous, and for a tablet-like 2-in-1, the Surface Pro 6 boasts superb build quality. And, like other Surface Pro devices, you can easily pair it with a Type Cover keyboard and you have a super-slim featherweight laptop.
Surface Pro 7
The seventh generation of the Microsoft Surface Pro has been revealed, available for pre-order now! For this refresh, Microsoft continued its conservative approach and decided not to mess with a good thing. The Surface Pro 7 features everything we love about the Pro 6 with some subtle refinements like ninth-generation Ice Lake Intel Core CPUs and a new USB-C port. Along with those rather minor upgrades, the Surface Pro 7 still packs a fantastic 3:2 PixelSense touchscreen and awesome construction quality, and it works beautifully with the Type Cover keyboard for pulling double duty as a 2-in-1 laptop.
Surface Book 2
The new 15-inch Surface Book 2, on sale now at Buydig.com, is a hefty and powerful laptop just like the original. It’s also a tablet, thanks to that detachable display. Its high-end graphics card and support for Xbox controllers also make it a miniature Xbox One for gaming on the go. The Surface Book 2 is the first portable Surface computer that you can actually play the latest games on. Sure, it’s bigger in your lap, it’s heavier, and the screen is much larger than a typical Ultrabook, but you’re also getting a lot more power under the hood. The 15-inch screen maintains the typical quality you’ve come to expect from Surface hardware, with great color reproduction and viewing angles. It’s also nearly 4K now, and maintains the 3:2 aspect ratio that makes it great for reading or writing. It functions almost identically to the original Surface Book, allowing you to remove the display and use it as a tablet.
