Introduction of Microsoft Surface Laptop
Microsoft is a popular company and one of the most popular in the world of computer software but last year they surprised the world with their first laptop production known as Surface Laptop. This caused a lot of uproars although people have been expecting them to come up with their own laptop and they took the bold step. They didn’t go for a tablet that needs an attached keyboard but went for the main deal.
This time around they went for the big fish which is the Surface Laptop 2 but there’s no much difference between the new product and the former one just a few updated internals and some more different color options. The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 goes for the same price as the former which is $999 but the additional stuff about this price is that it can be configured to rank at a price of over $2000.
With this new development, it doesn’t stop the other popular laptop makers from the contest as HP and Huawei have also made much impact with amazing features in their new laptops. Let’s take a look at the good and bad sides of the Surface Laptop 2.

Let’s talk a bit about the keyboard of this laptop, according to Microsoft they said they made the Surface Laptop 2 keyboard to be a bit quieter than its predecessor that was produced last year. From observations of people, the former’s keyboard wasn’t loud either and you might not know the difference between them till you bring them close to each other. Concerning the trackpad of Laptop 2, it is glass covered and very much easy to use.
From the cons, we listed above we mentioned about the ports and it’s indeed something to consider about the Surface Laptop 2. It followed the same pattern as the former which includes a 3.5mm headphone jack, one USB-A port, charging port and mini display port. The heartbreak of them all is them all is the lack of SD Card slot which could make many people uncomfortable especially photographers.
