Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 review


A sleek, strong and silent sequel

Competitive power level, Lovely new black color scheme, Quieter keyboard, No more Windows 10 S Mode

No Thunderbolt 3 option, Too few ports for its size

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 2 is, from top to bottom, a worthy sequel to the original device. This new model vastly improves the laptop’s power profile and, while it doesn't include tangible design changes, it ultimately achieves the most pure Windows...

Surface Laptop 2 review


Microsoft introduced its Surface Laptop in 2017. It's now released a second version, which is significantly improved on the inside but has the same, slim design.

Beautifully designed ; Great to type on ; Powerful

No USB-C ; Expensive

The Surface Laptop 2 is one of the very best Windows ultraportable laptops, but for our money the Dell XPS 13 offers a better all-round package.

The nicest, and truest, thing I can say about the Surface Laptop 2 is that it's just a joy to use. No gimmicks, no weird drawbacks. It's just a good laptop with a good keyboard and a good trackpad with good battery life that's a pleasure to use.

Surface Laptop 2 review: Microsoft's sleeker answer to the MacBook Air


This slim, powerful machine is the finest example of what a Windows laptop should be. If only it came with USB-C

great keyboard, good trackpad, Alcantara, sleek design, USB-A port, great screen, great battery life, Windows Hello, powerful processor

no USB-C, no SD card reader, no fingerprint scanner, limited configuration options, Windows 10 Home not Pro, only Intel UHD 620

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 is arguably the finest example of what a Windows laptop should be. It is beautiful, simple, powerful and well made. It works better than most of the competition, from super quick startup to seamless all-in-one update...
