Surface Laptop 3 review (15-inch): Bigger, but not always better

 

The Surface Laptop 3 is a super-sized version of Microsoft's ultraportable, with a gorgeous 15-inch screen and powerful AMD hardware. It's impressive for a 3.4-pound machine, though it lags behind slightly heavier 15-inch notebooks when it comes to...

AMD’s hardware makes it a powerful ultraportable ; Clean and simple design ; Wonderful keyboard and trackpad ; Gorgeous screen

Only two ports ; Pricier and less powerful than other 15-inch laptops ; Shorter battery life than the Surface Laptop 2

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 review: A beautiful miss

 

The Surface Laptop 3 now comes in a 15-inch model, which looks quite similar to what you get with the 13-inch version. But new here is a new all-aluminum finish and a custom AMD Ryzen processor. Can Microsoft's new clamshell compete with laptops like...

Large 3:2 display ; Build quality is rock solid ; Comfortable keyboard and touchpad ; Stays quiet and cool

Microsoft's Surface Laptop 3 gives AMD a shot at laptop glory, but it misses

Microsoft expands its 13-inch laptop into a prosaic 15-inch model with mostly business appeal.

 

Microsoft expands its 13-inch laptop into a prosaic 15-inch model with mostly business appeal.

Microsoft finally adds a USB-C connection to its Surface Laptop line. The 15-inch model Surface Laptop 3 offers easy opening for storage upgrades.

Meh battery life for its class, no Thunderbolt 3 support and minimal connections.

The 15-inch model of the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 offers solid performance and a nice design as an everyday thin-and-light business laptop.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (15-Inch)

 

With a large 3:2 screen, a comfortable touchpad, light weight for its size, and decent performance (powered by new partner AMD), Microsoft's larger-screen Surface Laptop 3 is an excellent mainstream machine.

Attractive, unassuming design. Thin and light for a 15-inch laptop. Bright, vivid 3:2 display. Comfortable touchpad.

Optional extras (such as the Surface Dock) are pricey. Limited selection of ports. No Wi-Fi 6 support.

Bottom Line: With a large 3:2 screen, a comfortable touchpad, light weight for its size, and decent performance (powered by new partner AMD), Microsoft's larger-screen Surface Laptop 3 is an excellent mainstream machine.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15-inch review: it’s a bigger Surface Laptop

 

The new 15-inch Surface Laptop is a familiar package with new dimensions

Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Sturdy build quality ; Good performance for everyday productivity tasks ; 3:2 aspect ratio screen is great for productivity ; Relatively little bloatware out of the box ; Windows Hello facial login works great

Only two USB ports ; No Thunderbolt 3 ports ; Below average battery life ; No SD card slot ; Matte black model gets full of fingerprints almost immediately ; Struggles editing and even playing back 4K video

Still, if you were hoping that the 15-inch Laptop 3 would be more than just a bigger Surface Laptop, I’m sorry to report that you’ll be disappointed. Fortunately, there are plenty of other, more powerful 15-inch laptops available, such as Apple’s...

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15-inch (Ryzen 7) review: The price tag climbs, but battery life drops

 

We've tested a second 15-inch Microsoft Surface Laptop 3, this time with a top-of-the-line Ryzen 7 processor inside. You'll pay more for a moderate performance bump, but even more disappointing battery life.

Stunning PixelSense display is as good as ever ; USB-C plus the Surface Connector expands I/O and power options ; Surprisingly good cooling keeps it almost fanless ; Better multi-monitor support ; Stunning PixelSense display is as good as ever ; USB-C...

Keyboard is slightly shallower ; Battery life disappoints ; Battery life is really disappointing ; Keyboard is slightly shallower than predecessor

Picking apart keyboard subtleties usually boils down to the spacing between the keys (the pitch), and the amount of play in the keys (the key travel). Surface keyboards are generally quite good, and the Surface Laptop 3 keyboard is no exception:...

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (13.5-inch) review: Sleek and sophisticated

 

The third-gen Surface Laptop is a proper MacBook Pro rival that sets the standard for Windows 10 machines. It looks great in its various finishes too.

The PixelSense display is still brilliant ; Great-looking design - in a variety of finishes ; USB-C is a welcome addition

No Thunderbolt 3 speeds ; More ports would benefit ; Battery life a little down on previous version ; Slightly reflective screen

A sensible upgrade to the already stellar series, the introduction of a USB-C port, larger trackpad, and more power add plus-points onto its impressive score sheet. However, there's no Thunderbolt 3 speeds from that USB-C port, which is an oddity. And...

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (15-Inch) Review: AMD Ryzen Surface Edition

 

This year at Microsoft's somewhat annual Surface update event, Microsoft surprised everyone by not only announcing a newer and larger Surface Laptop 3, bumping the screen size from 13.5-inches to 15-inches, but also by selecting an AMD processor for...

Overall, the Surface Laptop 3 15 is a great laptop. It keeps all of the design cues of the smaller generation and just makes it a bit bigger, retaining the same thin & light design and keeping it easy to travel with. Microsoft has forged a solid...
