Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 review

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 isn’t revolutionary in any single way, but what it does it does without fuss and with surprisingly strong performance at times. Getting to live and work with the laptop over a period of two weeks, I’ve used it for remote meetings, processing photos, doing image work and indeed writing this very review.

It’s been superseded by the upgraded Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio, which boasts increased performance for digital content creation, and more flexible design (and a higher price tag), but the Surface Laptop 4 might still remain our choice for writers and budding pros from the Surface roster.
