As we note in our Surface Laptop 3 review, it flaunts an elegant premium design and sharp, vivid display. During testing, the laptop's performance was impressively solid. We gave the Surface Laptop 3 a 4 out of 5-star rating and our prestigious Editor's Choice award.
In terms of design, the Surface Laptop 3 is classy, modern-looking, and minimalist. With its smooth curves and clean lines, it's on par with Apple's stylish ultrabooks. Like most of today's 13-inch laptops, the port selection on the Surface Laptop 3 is scant. It supplies you with a magnetic Surface Connect port, USB 3.1 Type-A port, USB Type-C input, and a headphone/mic combo jack. If you need more ports, we recommend you invest in a USB hub.
Weighing in at 2.9-pounds, and 12.1 x 8.8 x 0.6-inches, the Surface Laptop 3 is on par with its competitors. It's just as thin and light as the MacBook Air (2.8 pounds, 12 x 8.4 x 0.6-inches) and Dell XPS 13 (11.6 x 7.8 x 0.6 inches, 2.8 pounds). It's slightly lighter than the MacBook Pro (12 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches, 3 pounds).
Simply put, the Surface Laptop 3 is a wise choice if you're looking for a fast and reliable super-portable notebook.
