Microsoft launched its most recent device Surface Laptop 3 as well as many products at an event held in New York. The list of products launched includes Surface Pro X, the Surface Neo, Surface Duo, Windows 10X and Surface Earbuds.
The Surface Laptop 3 will be available in the market in two variants. The starting price of which is $ 999 i.e. approximately Rs 72,000. Currently, they have been launched in the US but no information has been given as to when they will be available in other markets including India.
In the 13-inch model, that gets you a 10nm, quad-core Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB RAM, and a 128GB removable solid-state drive. These can be upgraded to an Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM and up to a 1TB solid-state drive.
As for the 15-inch, it includes an AMD Ryzen 5 CPU, 8GB RAM, and 128GB solid-state drive. This laptop can reach an AMD Ryzen 7 CPU, up to 32GB RAM and up to 512GB of solid-state drive space.
The laptop’s measuring 308 x 223 x 14.51mm and weighing 1.25kg. However, the keyboard is squishier than expected, with deep key travel but not a lot of punch on the return of each keypress. The larger touchpad is a welcome improvement.
While, the 15-inch model comes only in this aluminum finish, in sandstone, silver or black options. The laptop feels very light for its size, weighing just 1.54kg and measuring 339.5 x 224 x 14.69mm.
That makes it apparently half a pound lighter than that of the 15-inch MacBook Pro.
Talking about the price and size of both variants of Microsoft Surface Laptop 3, the 13.5-inch model is priced at $ 999 i.e. around Rs 72,000. While the 15-inch model can be purchased for $ 1,199 i.e. around Rs 86,000. The company has launched them in two color variants Sandstone and Cobalt. Only the difference in the size of the two devices can be seen. Apart from this, their features and specifications are the same.
Talking about the features of Microsoft Surface Laptop 3, it works on the 10th generation Intel Core processor and has USB Type-C support for connectivity. Apart from this, the biggest feature of the Surface Laptop 3 is that it has used fast charge technology with the help of which users will be able to charge it from 0 to 80 percent in an hour. It will also feature front-facing camera and OmniSonic speakers, and dual far-field Studio Mics.
Explain that Microsoft has also launched new Surface Earbuds at this event and it has used immersive Omnisonic sound technology as a special feature. It has Spotify support which Android users can play instant on their device. The Surface Earbuds are priced at $ 249 i.e. approximately Rs 18,000. On Surface Earbuds, you will find almost all Office 365 products, including calendar and email.
