Features of the new Microsoft Surface Laptop 3

Get to know the features of the 13.5-inch and 15-inch Microsoft Surface Laptop 3, which are the new Microsoft laptops that seek to compete against Apple’s MacBook.

In recent times, the territory of laptops has been invaded by Apple and its MacBooks , which offer magnificent specifications in an elegant and lightweight body. Microsoft became aware of the situation and launched its Surface line, consisting of high-performance notebooks. Today it is time to talk about the new Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 , whose features and price will not disappoint.

Design and display

The new Microsoft alternative that seeks to compete against the MacBook comes in two versions: one of 13.5 inches and the other of 15 . Both are made entirely of aluminum and are offered in matt black with a metal palm rest and in platinum with an Alcantara palm rest, a textile material normally used in upholstery. As for the connections, the Microsoft Laptop 3 includes an input for USB type C and one for USB type A , a Surface Connect port and a 3.5mm audio output to connect headphones or microphones .

As we mentioned earlier, the North American company that leads the ranking of the world’s largest technology companies offers two display configurations. The first, smallest, extends to 13.5 inches and includes a resolution of 2,256 x 1,504 ; on the other hand, the largest model grows to 15 inches and boasts a resolution of 2,496 x 1,664 . In both cases, the pixel density is 201 PPP (Pixels Per Inch), the aspect ratio is 3: 2 and touch support is included, which means that we can control the laptop with our hands as if it were a smartphone.

Internal features

Inside the new Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 we will find different hardware configurations. As for the processor, this can be an Intel Core i5 or i7 of tenth generation and four cores or an AMD Ryzen series 5 or 7 , chipset presented a few months ago . In either case, the RAM can be 8 or 16 GB and the SSD storage 128, 256 or 512 GB . These specifications will not be the highest on the market, but they provide more than enough performance to carry out day-to-day tasks and, in some cases, more demanding ones such as simple video editing or execution of rendering programs.

Another of the strengths of the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is its battery; Despite not having shown official data on the number of cells or their size, Microsoft ensures that the equipment can be used normally for approximately 11.5 hours . Again, the duration may not be the longest in the industry, but it does meet a typical workday.
