Harnessing the full power of Windows 10 and featuring the 10th Gen Intel® Core™ or new AMD Ryzen processor, you’ll have the performance, connectivity and entertainment to finish your work and feed your creativity.

Microsoft’s vision to reinvent the laptop first took shape in 2017 with the debut of the original Surface Laptop. It married a compact form factor with a roomy keyboard and tight integration with the Windows environment that other laptops were lacking.

The new Surface Laptop 3 is innovative and versatile.

More power to do what you want: All-day battery life (up to 11.5 hours) to fuel your creativity and ideas. Super-fast charging to 80% in an hour.

More power: A cutting-edge processor for everyday productivity multitasking as well as more demanding entertainment, gaming and content creation applications.
