After a 2-in-1 tablet, a 2-in-1 convertible, and an all-in-one desktop, Microsoft finally stepped into the realm of bog-standard laptops with the aptly named Surface Laptop. It is a curious device with beautiful but frustrating design choices that was ultimately rather well received.
The most frustrating for us Malaysians though, was the fact that you couldn’t buy one even if you wanted to. Well, that looks like it’s about to change really soon.
The Microsoft Surface Laptop is a beautiful piece of engineering. Many are saying that it’s probably the best built Windows laptop to date. Paired with its sleek lines and minimalist design, the Surface Laptop will certainly turn heads when you whip it out in your local Starbucks (especially that burgundy one).
But the problem with precision machining and having everything sealed away is often that these devices are difficult to repair, even by professionals, let alone in a DIY setting. In fact, according to iFixit, it’s impossible to repair without completely destroying it.
Microsoft just unveiled its latest laptop — aptly named the Surface Laptop — and it sits somewhere between the tablet-like Surface Pro and the 2-in-1 convertible Surface Book. And that’s a sweet spot most will be very happy with because that means it’s just a laptop without the complications of any detachable bits.
In fact, being “without complications” seems to be a recurring theme with this new Windows device.
Microsoft is poised to launch a brand new device at their event in New York on the 2nd of May. And, as with almost all device launches, the leaks have begun to trickle out. Well, gush out, actually as two Twitter users (well-known for their tech leaks) share images of Microsoft’s brand new laptop.
It’s called the Surface Laptop and if that name gets you excited, you might want to hold your horses.
