  • - Hey, this is Dan with "The Verge",

  • and this is the new Surface Laptop 3 from Microsoft.

  • As you can see, it's actually two laptops.

  • It's the Surface Laptop 3, 13 inch,

  • and the Surface Laptop 3, 15 inch.

  • They're really similar,

  • but they're a little bit different in some important ways.

  • The Surface Laptop 3, 13 inch

  • is gonna be pretty familiar

  • if you already know the Surface Laptop

  • and the Surface Laptop 2.

  • It's got the same size screen, same dimensions,

  • same kind of overall design.

  • There are a few design differences to be aware of, though.

  • It's got a bigger track pad,

  • Microsoft says it's 20% bigger than before.

  • It's got a new USB-C port on the side here,

  • which you can use for video, and data, and charging.

  • It's a USB-C 3.1,

  • it's not Thunderbolt 3,

  • so you can't use an external GPU with it,

  • but you can still output to a display.

  • And the other things, is it comes in new colors,

  • as you can see this is the sandstone gold type of color.

  • You can still get in black, blue, or silver.

  • And as part of the sandstone color

  • and as part of the black color,

  • it's got a new aluminum deck.

  • So, instead of the Alcantara fabric

  • that you get on the blue or the silver models,

  • you got a, kind of a familiar,

  • traditional, standard aluminum deck here.

  • Otherwise it's basically the same Surface Laptop as before,

  • but with upgraded internals.

  • This has Intel's tenth generation IceLink processors.

  • You can get them in Core i5 or Core i7 variants.

  • So it's got the latest generations from Intel,

  • and it's gonna perform better than before,

  • but it's gonna be a very similar experience.

  • (techno music)

  • The Surface Laptop 3, 15 inch is a whole new thing.

  • But as you can tell it still looks really familiar.

  • This is basically if you took a 13 inch model

  • and blew it up to a 15 inch size.

  • So you got 15 inch display,

  • got a slightly bigger keyboard,

  • slightly bigger track pad

  • than even on the new 13 inch model.

  • But otherwise everything's gonna be pretty familiar.

  • Same clamshell design, same overall wedge shape.

  • The 15 inch only is available with the aluminum deck,

  • you don't get the Alcantara option on it.

  • But you still have the surface connector on the side,

  • you still have the USB-C port, USB-A port,

  • and then your headphone jack.

  • Inside the Surface Laptop 3, 15 inch

  • is a new processor that is not available

  • in the 13 inch model.

  • Microsoft worked with AMD

  • to put a Ryzen 5 or a Ryzen 7 chip in this.

  • And they worked with AMD

  • to create a custom Surface edition of this chip

  • that's got a little bit more graphic power

  • than your typical Ryzen set up.

  • Now Microsoft says that it put this processor

  • in the 15 inch model

  • because they were able to get better graphics performance

  • out of the integrated chips

  • than they can on the Intel side.

  • And they expect that with a 15 inch laptop,

  • you're gonna be doing more 3-D demanding things,

  • whether that's in CAD or Photoshop,

  • maybe some light video editing.

  • That's not to say this is a gaming laptop.

  • You're not gonna be doing 60 frames per second

  • in Tomb Raider or other AAA games.

  • You might be able to do some light gaming on it,

  • but this is still a 3.4 pound,

  • under 15 millimeter thick, portable laptop.

  • This isn't really like a big gaming rig.

  • (soft techno music)

  • So those are the new laptops from Microsoft,

  • the Surface Laptop 3 line.

  • The 13 inch is gonna start at $999,

  • the 15 inch starts at $1,199.

  • They're available for pre-order starting today,

  • and they're gonna be shipping on October 22nd.

  • We're gonna have way more to say about these

  • once we get them in for a proper review.

  • This was our first preview,

  • first look at them.

  • So be sure to stay tuned for that.

  • And also be sure to check out our other coverage

  • on everything else that Microsoft's announced today.

  • There's the Surface Pro 7,

  • Surface Pro X,

  • and something new, like a Surface Neo.

  • I think we've got an exclusive look at that as well.

  • So check it out, theverge.com,
