As expected, Microsoft introduced the new Surface Laptop at a conference in New York. The third generation mainly introduces the AMD Ryzen 7 processor and 15 '' screen to the offer, but that is not all the news.
Surface Laptop 3 will be available in both the new 15- and 13.5-inch versions available so far. Buyers will be able to choose from Intel Core 10th generation systems as well as AMD Ryzen 7 in a unique version of Surface Edition. The latter occurs in tandem with the integrated graphics card Radeon Vega 11, which is to meet even the requirements of players. A short fragment of the game from Forza Horizon 4.
Meanwhile, the version from Core 10th generation, Ice Lake, is reportedly three times more efficient than this year's MacBook Air. However, this is not particularly surprising, given that Apple's hardware uses a low-voltage dual core.
The device housing was interestingly solved. It is made of aluminum unibody, which has been milled in such a way that the edges of the screen also serve as a distance to protect the screen. Not only that, Surface Laptop 3 is finally a serviceable device. By loosening the screws, you can remove the bottom of the computer and thus access the data carrier, cooling system and battery.
The exact specification was not disclosed, but we know that Surface Laptop 3 has at least one USB-C and USB-A, as well as a headphone jack and a known magnetic power socket.
We also know that it has a scissor keyboard with a stroke of 1.3 mm, with white LEDs. Microsoft announces the novelty as the perfect equipment for people entering large amounts of text. The work panel, typically for the Surface series, is covered with textile material.
Both models, 15- and 13.5-inch, will hit the market on October 22, 2019 at a price of $ 1199 and $ 999, respectively – with Windows 10, of course.
