The very first thing worth mentioning would be the insanely powerful processor loaded into this laptop. It comes with an Intel Core i7 1065G7 processor with 4 cores and 8 threads. The CPU has a base frequency of 1.30 GHz and a max turbo of 3.90 GHz. It doesn’t matter what sort of task you throw at this 10th Generation processor, it’ll definitely be able to handle it.
The screen is a particularly special aspect of the Microsoft Surface. You’re getting a 2256 x 1504 resolution screen with Microsoft’s PixelSense. PixelSense is the manufacturer’s technology designed to enhance the visual experience by adding that much more clarity to the pixels. The panel is also a touch screen that supports the Surface Pen.
- A lot of users have reported an overheating issue. Once the laptop is put under heavy usage, the laptop struggles to keep the temps under control and as a result, the fans spin out of control; creating a decent bit of noise that can be disturbing at times.
- The screen is extremely fragile and won’t stand against any sort of bumps.
This is one of the best laptops in the market in terms of specs and functionality. It’s a great purchase for people looking to pay the price for high-end machines. It does have some limitations when it comes to gaming, but it can handle graphics-related tasks and some entry-level gaming pretty well. Overall, a solid machine that’s one of the best laptops you can get your hands on in 2020.
