At 3.4 pounds and 13.4 x 9.6 x 0.6 inches, the Surface Laptop 3 is pretty compact for a 15-inch laptop. It's lighter than the Dell XPS 15 (4.5 pounds, 14.1 x 9.3 x 0.5~0.7-inches), the 15-inch HP Spectre x360 (4.5 pounds, 14.2 x 9.8 x 0.8 inches) and the 4 pound, 13.8 x 9.5 x 0.6-inch Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch)

Like most of today's slender laptops, the Surface Laptop 3's port selection is pretty modest. It's equipped with a magnetic Surface Connect port, a USB 3.1 Type-A port and a USB Type-C input. There's also a headphone/mic jack for when you want private listening.
