Introducing Surface Laptop 4 and new accessories for enhanced meeting experiences

Microsoft’s hardware legacy stretches back more than four decades to the early days of personal computing. As Windows built and inspired new computing experiences, new Microsoft hardware accessories helped people interact with them. At this intersection of hardware and software, magical experiences are possible. This core belief is at the heart of every product we build at Microsoft, and it’s especially true of our Surface products. 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.

For years, Surface Laptop has stood apart from the crowd with craftsmanship unlike any other. We’ve spoken about how much we believe the details matter – and that conviction is rewarded when we see Surface Laptop consistently hold the highest customer satisfaction rating in its class.[1] When we explore what customers like most, we hear a unique mix of product capabilities and fine details. For some, it’s all about the satisfying typing experience and Alcantara finishes. For others, it’s the immersive capabilities of touch, video quality, our 3:2 displays and reliable app compatibility. We, too, believe that a device’s performance goes beyond what can be measured in specifications. 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.
