I get to do some awesome things here at nzgirl and I’m buzzing about this latest one. I took the new Microsoft Surface Laptop out for a spin to see what it can do and discovered it to be the ultimate #girlboss machine!

It’s perfect for every gal on the go, especially all you students getting ready to take on the world. Because let’s face it, studying needs to be as seamless as possible and hands down, this is the computer to take away all those technical aches and pains. Plus – added bonus – it’ll take your downtime next level when you binge watch your fave shows!

Weirdly enough, when I took the Surface Laptop to my fave local café, the man next to me had a Surface Pro (pictured above), so we got to chatting about both devices special features. In fact, there are so many reasons why the Surface Laptop sits at the top of the class and I share them here, so you can see why, too!

1. It’s super lightweight

This new darling of the Microsoft fam is super lightweight, weighing in at a mere 1.25 kg for the 13.5″ screen, which is less than the bottle of Coke Zero in your bag ready for that late night at the library. Even the difference of a few grams makes a huge difference when you’re hauling around everything you need for a day at uni. It’ll even slip easily into a tote bag when you want to leave the backpack at home or do as I did, and work at your fave café (free wifi!!).

2. It’s sleek ‘n’ sexy

This is one beautiful, high performance machine. It’s a slim, elegant laptop encased in a chic hardwearing, curved aluminium casing with a choice of four on-trend colour tones platinum, burgundy, cobalt blue and graphite gold. Plus it has a gorgeous, soft and warming Alcantara material-covered keyboard and palm rests. No shock of aluminium icy-cold when you fire up this baby on a chilly winter morn!

3. It has battery power to the max

How many times have you forgotten to pack your cable for a day of uni? Or just don’t want to sit in lectures plugged into a power socket? First world problems for sure, but so annoying, right? Well it’s time to kiss goodbye to the battery-runneth-out fear and say hello to an epic Surface Laptop battery life of up to 14 hours. And yep, that includes lying in bed on Sunday streaming the latest season of Love Island. Or The Handmaid’s Tale if you’re more cerebrally inclined. I used this Surface Laptop for an hour and was still at 94%. BOOM! 💥

4. It’s monumentally powerful

The Surface Laptop’s 7th Gen Intel Core processor is fast! As in, you can have a tonne of websites, apps, and docs open at once and it does not slow down. Yes, really. If you’re anything like me, you have everything running at once for days at a time (I’m talking internet shopping, Facebook, YouTube, Windows 10 S, Spotify, Office 365 Personal, Evernote and more!) and with this laptop you don’t have to keep shutting down pages, apps and desktop programmes to get an optimal performance. How great is that?

5. It’s ready for your brilliance

Having never experienced it before, I am in love the Surface Laptop’s touchscreen with it’s ultra vibrant PixelSense™ Display. And the Surface Pen1 is what I have been waiting for! Great for last minute electronic signatures on new tenancy leases and, for those of you more talented than I, you can play with Windows 3D creation to bring your world-changing ideas to life.

6. It’s badass durable

You need a touchscreen to be unbreakable and this one is with its durable Corning Gorilla Glass 3 is the kind of protection every gal needs. Plus, no danger from scratches either, which let’s face it, can happen with rogue rings and bracelets. And it’s been specially crafted to easily be wiped clean to keep your life spills and thrills-free, computer speaking, that is.

Our Verdict

There are so many reasons why you’ll love the Microsoft Surface Laptop with its supercharged bells and whistles, and I can already see that it’s guaranteed to make your uni life better. Plus it has all the features you’d expect for a high performance 2017 computer, including the ambient light sensor, the ability to maximise battery life using the Power Mode tool, the Intel Iris plus Graphics, the ultimate sound experience with Omnisonic speakers with Dolby Audio Premium, a 720p HD front-facing camera, Bluetooth capability, plus added security with Windows Hello face sign-in.

This computer has been designed with you in mind and with no secret add-ons that bring up the cost, and I reckon you’d be one smart cookie to get yourself this next gen Surface Laptop.

 

Thanks to the peops at Microsoft for letting us give the Surface Laptop a whirl… it gets a thumbs up from us!
