If you’re shopping early, this is one the best Black Friday laptop deals you can get now. Amazon (opens in new tab) has it for the same price.
In our Microsoft Surface Laptop 5 review, we liked its sleek, great-sounding speaker, tactile, clicky keyboard and slim, premium design. However, we expected more performance and better battery life, so we deducted points. It endured 9 hours of our Laptop Mag Battery Test — which involves continuous Web surfing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness. We gave the Surface Laptop 5 an overall rating of 3 out of 5 stars. Hopefully a software update will address the gripes we had with it.
For your connectivity needs, the Surface Laptop 5 has a USB 3.1 Type-A port, USB-C port with USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 support and Surface Connect port. There’s also a headphone/mic combo jack onboard for private listening and audio recording.
As an alternative, save $500 on the Surface Laptop 4 Bundle (opens in new tab). It costs $2,019, so this discount drops it to $1,515. This bundle includes: a Surface Laptop 4 (valued at $1,699), Surface Pen (valued at $99) and 3-year Microsoft Complete Protection Plan (valued at $219). The laptop in this deal has a 13.5-inch, (2256 x 1504) display, Intel Core i7-1185G7 quad-core CPU, 16GB of RAM, Intel Iris Xe Graphics and 512GB SSD.
The Surface Laptop 4 earned an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars and our Editor’s Choice award. We loved its sleek, sturdy design, fast AMD CPU performance, and impressive 12 hour battery life.
