Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 3 is an excellent laptop, but some people lamented that it was only available in an AMD configuration for the 15-inch model. But now it seems the Surface Laptop 4 may allow you more choice between Team Red or Team Blue. According to the German site WinFuture leak report, it appears Microsoft might offer a choice between Intel and AMD for both sizes of the laptop.
Here’s what else we learn from the report:
- The laptop will be available in 13.5 and 15-inch sizes again.
- Microsoft is sticking to the tried and trusted Surface Laptop design, so expect few visual changes.
- It will be available in Ryzen 5 (4680U) and Ryzen 7 (4980U) configurations, although they will be branded once again as ‘Surface Edition’ chips with a few tweaks.
- The AMD models will max out at 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
- The Intel edition will come in Core i5 (1145G7) and Core i7 (1185G7).
- The Intel configuration will also come in 32GB and 1TB configurations.
It would be nice to see a design refresh for the Surface Laptop 4. It’s been nearly unchanged since the 2017 model — other than the addition of all metal and 15-inch models –and those bezels are quite hefty by modern standards.
Of course, these are just leaks, so take these details with a grain of salt. Still, it’s nice to see that consumers have a bit more choice on their processor options, for a change.
