I've only had this laptop for about 12 hours, so consider these initial thoughts rather than a final verdict.
It seems like a truly excellent product, but Windows 10 S… The Surface Laptop is as abstractly beautiful and malleable as its name is overly literal and slightly clunky.
Sit on my lap and talk about the first thing that pops up?
The Microsoft Surface Laptop is an excellent laptop although, like everything Microsoft makes these days, very slightly quirky.
Having had it less than one day, I haven't even bothered to charge this model (i5, 8GB, 256GB) and the battery shows no signs of running out so far.

The hinge is firm enough to give confidence but it can still be flipped open with a finger.
This review sample is in 'platinum' or, as I like to call it, 'grey', but it's a very sexy grey.In the current, muggy weather we're having in London, it has also begun to feel a little clammy under the palm.Unfortunately, the only way to find out how well the Alcantara will weather is to use it for a few years. Funnily enough, that's also true of the operating system.By which I mean, I think it's great, but that's because I didn't have to pay for it.The Surface Laptop is a beautiful thing, and works very well.The nicely clicky keyboard has a decent amount of travel, the glass touchpad is very pleasing indeed and the touchscreen is top drawer.
