Sitting at the top of Microsoft’s Surface line, the SLK looks to ensure that the Book 3 finds its place in the world of today. To do this, Microsoft has boosted the inner workings of the laptop utilising a 10-th gen i7 processor allowing for 32GB of memory and up to 512GB of storage. It comes with a sleek 13.6in screen which can be detached from the keyboard like a tablet. Alongside that, it also comes loaded with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU to help users enjoy the best of PC gaming without any issues,
Processor: Intel Core i7
Other Features: Detachable keyboard, Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics card
- The SLK’s detachable screen makes it an ideal device for anyone needing to work on the good. The screen is easy to disconnect from the keyboard and with the screen only being 13.6in, it is light and easy to transport around in comparison to bulkier laptops.
- One of the strongest aspects for the Surface range is that it has impressive battery life. The battery life has lasted for hours without dropping dramatically
- With the addition of the GTX 1650 graphics card, the Surface Book 3 SLK will be able to run most games without any issues.
- For a laptop designed by someone of Microsoft’s stature, they have still yet to add any support for Thunderbolt 3 ports. This may disappoint anyone looking to add 4k peripherals to the device.
- Despite the boost inside the machine, the look and feel of the SLK has barely changed from the previous generation. It is slightly disappointing considering this is meant to be Microsoft’s flagship machine.
There is nothing wrong with the Book 3 SLK and the boost to its performance makes it a great all-round device especially when on the move. However, Microsoft may need to think about some design evolutions if they want future success.
