Surface Laptop Review

The Surface Laptop is a lower-profile machine than its kickstand-packing, tablet-converting predecessors, yet it still carries the price tag of a super-premium product. Those factors together made me largely dismiss the device when it first debuted – but two weeks of real-world usage later, it’s become my favorite Surface to date. To see why, click on through to MrMobile’s Surface Laptop Review!

MrMobile’s Surface Laptop Review was produced following two weeks with a review device (Cobalt Blue, Core i5 model) on loan from Microsoft. The laptop was operated primarily on Windows 10 S, with two days of Windows 10 Pro use at the end of the initial review period.

I disagree that the low end model is overpriced. Unlike any other laptops at that price you get a high res touch screen. On some laptops you may get a touch screen or a high res display but not both.

Best surface ever is a pretty low bar. Plus a back to college computer is 500 bucks. This is just a rip off of a MacBook everything bad about a MacBook with none of the good

darrylkid says:

It isn’t a laptop designed for microsoft’s branding. You forgot the key point that this laptop is designed for: surface pen. The surface pen is a key selling point for most people because the pen has over 1000 pressure points, which is made to replace wacom digitizer tablets, whilst also having the ability to perform as a full blown PC. So much productivity can be done with his tablet. That’s why it’s perfect for high school/college students and artists. This is not some high priced, undervalued laptop that Microsoft copies from Apple, it’s a All in One media consumption productivity tablet.

Where can we get the L-Cars Live Screensaver? Oh and another awesome review!

Manuel Fontanilla says:

Great review. However with the lack of Cortana (in New Zealand), the app gap, the app incompatibility if the USA Cortana is used, I will NEVER use a Windows 10 machine for personal… NEVER!


Ted Wu says:

I apologize…LCARS

KING 8 says:

MrMobil does the s8 have the vulkan api like the s7??

Juan Morales says:

Another great review Mr. Mobile

Emad Ahmed says:

God, I truly resent how commonplace MacBooks (all Apple products in fact) are, that owning one isn’t cool anymore. And the same look and feel of one model is dragged on for years, which further reduces any distinction with other MacBook owners if you choose to stick with Apple. This is why I’m feeling more inclined to the premium Windows offerings like the Surface line, but I’ve some curricular compulsions for owning a Mac being a computer science student, so that’s too bad.

max steel says:

It’s not laptop hardware, but Windows OS is pure shit OS. I always choose MacOS over Windows, and Linux (Debian, Arch, Gentoo, Parrot Security and Fedora) over MacOS any fucking day.

LokiDaFerret says:

You are grossly underestimating search ad revenue and overestimating Microsoft’s morality! Their list of unscrupulous activity rivals that of POTUS.

In Edge, you first have to visit and then you can choose to have it as the default search engine in settings. If you don’t visit it first then it won’t show up in the default search engine option.

LuckieAsJunk says:

So I visited my local Microsoft store to finally upgrade from my beloved Lumia 1520 and take a look at this new surface book but to my dismay I was informed that Microsoft no longer sells or even honors the warranty on Lumia phones period, even the Microsoft made devices. Is this just an Oklahoma thing or has Microsoft actually cut ties completely with windows phone? Could you give us an update on what’s going on?
