Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 4 series makes its way to India

Microsoft has brought to India its latest Surface Laptop 4 series, which was announced globally in the month of April. The new laptop continues to offer a similar design and form factor as the previous-gen model with 13.5-inch and 15-inch displays. During the global announcement, the company had said that it would give consumers the option of choosing between Intel and AMD CPUs in both sizes. However, this option will not be available in India, at least when it comes to consumer offerings.

Externally, there are no changes to the design, so you get a premium metal construction with the option of Alcantara fabric finish on the keyboard deck. The hardware on the inside has been updated so there is the option of Intel’s latest 11th-gen Tiger Lake processor or the new AMD Surface Edition chipsets based on the Ryzen 4000 series.

While Microsoft has a variety of SKUs, the offering in India is different from the US. For consumers, the 13.5-inch variant will be available with the AMD Ryzen 5 4680U six-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. There is also the option of an Intel Core i5-1135G7, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. The 15-inch version will be available with the Ryzen 7 4980U, 8GB of memory, and a 256GB SSD. Essentially, one cannot get the 15-inch variant with an Intel chipset. Microsoft is offering a much wider range of SKUs for commercial users with options going up to an Intel Core i7-1185G7 or the AMD Ryzen 4980U. Depending on what model you choose, graphics will be handled by either Intel’s Xe or AMD’s Radeon graphics.

Coming to the I/O, you get a standard USB-A port, a USB Type-C port, a headphone jack, and the Surface connector. While that is very limited, you can further expand those by using an external dock. Another thing to note is that Microsoft is offering a standard USB-C port, with no support for Thunderbolt, however, you can attach external monitors. Speaking of which, we have listed some of the best external monitors for the Surface Laptop 4 that you should definitely check out. Other important features on the Surface 4 Laptop include Windows Hello face sign-in, a 720p HD webcam, dual far-field studio mics, omnisonic speakers with Dolby Atmos, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.0.
