Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 = absolutely amazing!!
Posted . Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
Absolutely thrilled with the new Microsoft Surface Laptop 4! It is THE best Windows laptop on the market currently, nothing even comes close! The other two manufacturer systems, which I also purchased at the same time to test them out all side-by-side for a few days to see which I liked best for day-to-day activity, are already packaged and have been shipped to them. I definitely recommend!
Hi – It's great to hear that it’s a good fit for your needs. We hope it continues to serve you well. Best, Erica Surface Customer Care

Got this laptop to work form home and the durability is just the worst. My screen cracked from just lifting the screening open, The other problem I been having is that the speaker crack when every I have it at a higher volume. I'm just so disappointed I wanted something different the whole sea of Macbooks, so I saw the surface and just love the look. Unfortunately quality wasn't there. if he really want this laptop I would get the warrant on it that unfortunately I didn't get.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Display, Ease of use, Speed
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
on the Surface its a great product!!!!!!!!!!!!
So far its a dream. Fast easy to use, light as a feather, Versatile, and a great picture.
I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this laptop at first. I felt it was a bit pricey for being only an i5 but I loved how it looked and how compact it was. Well after about a month of using it I would say it was worth it. It’s def windows version of the Mac book. It’s light and sleek and it’s fast for me thus far. Hope that it will last long like a lot of macs do also. Overall I’m impressed with the way the machine works and appreciate its aesthetic and portability!
Let me just say that I’ve been trying to find the perfect computer for the absolute longest but had no luck. I’m so glad that I started browsing on the Best Buy app. This is such a beautiful slim computer. The color of it has made me fallen completely in love with it.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 reviewThe Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 is the best Surface laptop yet
Review: AMD's impact on Surface Laptop 4 (15") makes a big differenceSurface Laptop 4 gets a significant boost in performance thanks to AMD Ryzen R7, but there are also many qualifications to that statement. While it's easier to recommend the 15-inch 2021 model, Microsoft could still do better with this series

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 (13-inch) ReviewThere's no shortage of Windows 10 laptops, and plenty of high-end, design-led choices there too, yet Microsoft's Surface Laptop 4 still stands out. For this fourth-generation there̵
I was in the same lookout when I began classes this past semester.
This computer is perfect and has a very long-lasting battery life! Haven't had any problems with it. It is also very practical and fast.
