There’s a new portable in town: The Microsoft Surface Laptop

By Ng Chong Seng - on 24 Jan 2018, 10:46am

Microsoft Surface Laptop available Jan 24, pre-orders start Jan 10

Microsoft has announced that its Surface Laptop will be available in Singapore starting January 24, 2018.

Pre-orders began from Jan 10, at the Microsoft Store, as well as authorized retailers, including Best Denki, Challenger, Courts, LOL by Epicentre, Harvey Norman, and Newstead. Surface Laptop will also be available for pre-orders for commercial customers via Authorized Device Resellers including AsiaPac Distribution Pte Ltd, JK Technology Pte Ltd, and UIC Asian Computer Services Pte Ltd.

The Surface Laptop is basically a clamshell laptop running Windows 10 S (upgradable to Pro). Weighing 1.25kg and coming in at less than 14.5mm thick, the laptop also touts up to 14.5 hours of battery life. It also sports a 13.5-inch PixelSense Display (protected by Gorilla Glass 3) that’s optimized for touch and inking (works with the optional Surface Pen, of course), and a keyboard that’s covered in luxurious Alcantara material. Only the Platinum version is available though, which is a bummer.

The Surface Laptop will start at S$1,488, and that’s for the Intel Core i5 (Kaby Lake) version, with 128GB SSD, 4GB RAM, and Intel HD Graphics 620. The top-end variant with Core i7, 1TB SSD, 16GB RAM, and Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 will set you back S$3,888.
