Mike Sanders / 1 year ago
For more than a few weeks now, we had seen plenty of rumours to all but confirm that Microsoft was on the verge of officially confirming the launch of its brand new Surface Laptop 4 models. All we were literally waiting upon was the official rubber stamp. Well, after more than a little anticipation, it is now official. – Microsoft has confirmed the launch of the Surface Laptop 4, and, in confirmation of prior speculation surrounding these new products, we now also know categorically that models available will feature APU designs from both Intel and AMD.

In announcing the launch, Microsoft has issued the following statement (albeit we have edited it a little to trim off some of the fat) as well as a promotional video which you can check out further below:
“For almost a decade, Surface has pioneered breakthrough experiences that immerse people in their creative flow, eliminating friction that often exists between people and technology. Surface allows people to adapt to new ways of working and creating through innovative and versatile devices that offer premium design and performance, quality typing and trackpads, exceptional cameras and mics, and immersive touchscreen display technologies. From the student learning on their Surface Go or Surface Laptop Go, to the knowledge worker on their Surface Pro 7+, to the creative professional working on a Surface Book 3, these products now serve as a lifeline to connections, content and work. It’s inspiring to consider all that can be achieved on a Surface.
We hear from customers that Surface Laptop’s performance stands out not only because of what it can do, but also because of how it speaks to the senses and inspires people. We have been hard at work, continuing to innovate while preserving the elements customers love most about this product. We’re pleased to introduce Surface Laptop 4.
Surface Laptop 4 is, first and foremost, optimized for Microsoft experiences. It retains the iconic design, details, and materials that our customers love. With our signature 3:2 PixelSense touchscreen displays in 13.5” or 15” models, customers can choose from Alcantara or metal finishes in a variety of bold colors you can’t get anywhere else, including a new Ice Blue finish. Surface Laptop 4 offers a built-in HD front-facing camera with incredible low-light capability and a studio microphone array, ensuring you’ll come through loud and clear as you connect with loved ones or participate in a crucial virtual work meeting. With the 201 PPI, high-contrast touchscreen display, and Dolby® Atmos™ Omnisonic speakers, you’ll get a cinematic experience that immerses you in your favorite movies and shows from the comfort of anywhere. Whether through the vibrant touchscreen display, large trackpad with gesture support, or its industry-leading typing experience, Surface Laptop can adjust to your preferred workflow. Surface Laptop 4 offers a choice between either the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, or AMD Ryzen™ Mobile Processors with Radeon™ Graphics Microsoft Surface® Edition (8 cores); in either case, you’ll find a smooth experience that powers modern, multitasking demands.
Across both options, we’ve partnered to customize silicon in ways that boost performance while offering improved battery life. On the outside, you see style and sophistication. Effortlessly lift the screen, and this product will draw you into your flow. From the office, living room, coffee shop or classroom, nothing comes close to this product’s look and feel.”
Where Can I Learn More?
Microsoft has confirmed that the Surface Laptop 4 is available to order now from America, Canada, and Japan, with international availability set to roll out over the coming weeks. With prices starting at $999, it isn’t, of course, surprising to learn that these new Surface Laptop 4 models are not going to come cheap (not that we expected them to be). In terms of quality and performance, however, Microsoft seems pretty adamant that these are going to be some of the best designs currently available on the market!
