However, compared to other high-end laptops on the market now, the Surface functionality is a good roadblock. The use of Ryzen 4000 small chips is a struggle now that the Ryzen 5000 series has been released. I have been experimenting with a few laptops and small Ryzen chips, and they are running fast for the last time and living a good battery life.
Where the Surface excels is usually design, quality, and fabric. I like the 3: 2 ratio. It gives you clear visuals, which means a little scrolling so you can focus on what you are reading. The 2,496 x 1,664 pixel resolution is not as 4K-sharp as the Dell XPS 15, but it is much better than the “Full HD” 1080p displays found in most 15-inch laptops. In terms of pixel density, it is very close to “Quad HD” (2,560 x 1,440 pixels but at 16: 9 display).
It’s very dry, I write very good and very sweet. The Ryzen 15-inch color system also uses AMD’s FreeSync technology, which allows for flexible flight-to-screen transitions, which make the graphics smoother and smoother. This is a feature you like to find on gaming consoles, but it is also a must for consumer preference tools. It may sound small, but after using Surface Laptop 4 for a week, it was painful to go back to the show without it.
Another great advantage of the Surface Laptop 4 is the battery life. The previous models had difficulty working all day, but this one is not a problem. With our battery-powered test (opening 1080p video saved at the end of 75%), I achieved 9.25 hours, which is one of the best results on a 15-inch machine. In fact, it was more than 11 hours a day.
The weakest here is the keyboard. It sounds amazing. The keys are awkward and seem to lack competitors like the Dell XPS 15. I also copy and lack the right control key. I have never seen this complaint mentioned anywhere, which is why I am probably the only one who uses the key. (It is possible to set a small menu key to control the use of third-party apps, as this is not expensive.) Trackpad, like the previous Surface Laptops, is the best Applep trackpad I’ve ever used.
If you want a 15-inch laptop on the retail viewer for sale, and you don’t have any big plans — no video editing or game-Surface Laptop 4 is a good choice. For many, a $ 1,299 starter version with Ryzen 7, 8 gigabytes of RAM, and a 256-GB SSD is enough to watch Netflix, change documents, and browse the internet. The difference is that similar prices, as well as cheaper, laptops are a type of design.
