  • Great little laptop, but no backlit keyboard...
    Reviewed by Chuck - October 29, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've had this laptop for a little less than a week, and for the most part it's a great little machine; it's small, powerful, and extremely portable. Just out of the box, the laptop looks and feels great. It has a very smooth, sleek design, and the metallic case makes the laptop feel well built and quite substantial. Closed, it's about the size of a tablet and since it weighs only about 2.5 lbs, it's easy to take it anywhere. One of the things I immediately liked was the ability to easily open the lid; I've had a few other small laptops that were almost like trying to pry open a clam. This laptop is a little hard to open if you're holding it, but if it's on a table, the lid opens quite easily, although it would still be nice to have a small tab/bump on the edge of the lid. The screen has good brightness, but I was using it outside on my deck, and the combination of the sun with the glass screen made it hard to view the screen clearly, so I had to move to an area with more shade. The other big thing I liked about the laptop is that the keyboard, although small, doesn't feel cramped. I have big hands, but there's plenty of room to rest my wrists and type comfortably. That said, I was kind of shocked to find that the keyboard isn't backlit. I actually sent an email to Microsoft asking why it wasn't backlit, but as of yet I haven't received an answer. It could be they were trying to save on costs, but I really can't see that being a huge cost saver. To me, a non-lit keyboard is just odd. As far a processing power goes, the laptop has easily handled everything I need to run. As with any small laptop, USB ports are few and far between, but this one has 1 USB 3.0 port and 1 USB-C port, which should be plenty. All in all, this is a great little laptop. It's very portable and packs enough power for about anything you'd probably need to do... plus it looks nice. If it had a backlit keyboard, I'd give it 5 stars, but as it is I'm giving it 4.

  • Not the computer for me
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Lexie - September 24, 2021

    The Microsoft Surface 4 was just not the right computer for me nor did I feel that it justified the $1,381 price tag. I watched dozens of videos on YouTube while contemplating the decision to purchase this brand over other laptop brands. What initially made me make the purchase this laptop was factors such as the touch screen feature and it came in 15inches which I was used to as an HP user. Also, the surface 3 options without the Alcantara fabric were sold out. I had always used HP’s in the past so I wanted to try something different. Outside of those two functions, the surface 4 didn’t look spectacular by design and it didn’t give me that wow factor for what I paid. I ended up purchasing the Lenovo Yoga which I really love and it was cheaper than the Microsoft.

  • Ultra-portable and ready for work
    Reviewed by nickcal - October 26, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Disclosure: Reviewers in this invitation-only program are provided products for the purpose of writing honest, unbiased reviews. This review is based on my own personal experiences with this product. Technology is always changing and now more than ever before, people find themselves in need of better computers. This amazing laptop from Microsoft has the power to provide support for students as well as business people while staying compact and having a sleek design. I want to start this review by saying that this computer is designed for basic productivity-style performance. It does have 8GB of RAM, which is enough to support video chatting and standard office-style tasks like word processing and mild design work, but it’s not enough to be efficient for a video editor or heavy graphic designer. That said, I found the Surface Laptop Go to be a very capable machine for basic activities. The design of this laptop is stunning. There are three color options for this laptop model - sandstone, platinum, and ice blue. I have the ice blue version. It’s a cool, sleek color that is subtle while still drawing attention. When its lid is closed, the laptop is very thin and compact. I’m used to a 15-inch laptop, but I frequently use a 12-inch tablet and my fiance uses a 13-inch laptop as her daily driver. At first glance, my initial response to its size was, “Wow, this is a small computer.” Once my fiance had it open and working on it, she didn’t have any complaints about its size. And again, if you are doing standard productivity-style tasks like answering emails, word processing, and even spreadsheet editing, the size is somewhat irrelevant. The keyboard has a very soft feel to it and it’s a joy to use. Keys are very well spaced out and I didn’t find myself mistyping much. This laptop was designed to be minimalistic. There are only four ports on it -- the charging port, one USB-C port, one USB-A port, and a headphone jack. Now even though the headphone jack is included, the laptop is Bluetooth capable so you can connect headphones in that way, too. The laptop is touch-screen compatible so you can operate it as a hybrid machine (tablet/laptop), but the screen does not fold flat against the back of the laptop. I find the hybrid operation quite helpful. The screen resolution is 1536 x 1024. It’s not a premium screen, but with this being a ‘basic’ level laptop, it’s more than ideal for this machine. I did quite a bit of typing and regular tasks on the laptop and never had a problem with clarity or visibility. One thing I’m not a big fan of with this laptop design-wise is the charger. It’s a two-part power cable and adapter. The cable has a proprietary connector that plugs into the laptop and it’s connected to a brick, which is similar in size to other laptop power adapters. Now, even though it comes with an enormous power adapter/cable since the laptop has a USB-C port, it can receive power through that port as well. I tested this out with a USB-C cable and wall adapter I had available and was able to charge the laptop. As far as performance goes, the laptop starts up very quickly and registers my fingerprint within about a second. I opted to work through a cloud-based word processor and didn’t have any issues with the laptop slowing down or being tripped up by that process. I opened up 9 tabs in my browser and had 9 streams of 4K video playing simultaneously while I was working on a document in another tab and I had my cloud-storage drive open in an 11th tab. The laptop did not seem to slow down at all. The Surface Laptop Go does come with Windows 10 installed in “S Mode.” This is really a sandboxed version of Windows 10 in my opinion. It gives you the operating system with limited functionality. It does not allow for external applications to be able to be installed. While this mode might be good for someone who does not understand the basics of how to keep your computer safe from outside downloads, it’s a little bit of a hassle to work with if you want to customize your experience at all. I wanted to download an alternative browser. I had to take the computer out of S Mode, which is a free process, but irreversible, in order to download that one program. This is just a feature that users should be aware of as they set-up their laptop. Battery life seems to be pretty strong. The specs of the machine state that a user should be able to get approximately 13 hours of activity out of the laptop when it’s got a full charge. I did not use the laptop for 13 hours straight, but after I made sure it had a full charge, I did find that after about 30 minutes, only 4% of the battery had been drained. That means that I was getting an average charging rate of around 0.13% per minute. When you use that charging rate and multiply it by 780 (13 hours converted to minutes), you get a total of 101.4. Now, that is of course slightly more than 100%, but it’s a close enough average that I can say that the 13-hour estimated battery life is accurate. One other thing I noticed while using the laptop was the heat collection on the bottom. I was using it on a flat surface and I noticed that while the laptop was plugged into a power source (either using the provided power cable/adapter or the USB-C cable), the bottom of the laptop near the hinge did get quite hot. The power button also gets quite warm. I think this is a charging issue though because when I started using the laptop unplugged, it was much cooler. The Surface Laptop Go is a very strong laptop for someone who needs an ultra-portable, performance-driven machine. It’s lightweight, very easy to travel with, and it has the power to complete most standard tasks. I can recommend this for most types of users (business, educational, or personal), but wouldn’t recommend it for creative professionals.
