No matter what color or size you choose for the Surface Laptop 3, you're going to have a good time with it, at least based on specs. It comes with either a 13.5-inch 2256x1504 display or a 15-inch 2496x1664 one for the smaller and larger variants respectively, and the laptop is fitted with Intel's 10th Gen CPUs which are more capable than nearly all other competing laptop CPUs. You can configure it with up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage, too, which is very convenient to have. The 15-inch version can also be configured with an AMD Ryzen 7 custom CPU and an AMD Vega 11, if you want to get a little more power. This is the first AMD-powered Surface device ever, and gamers in particular will find the benefits of this AMD hardware very useful.

From a physical design standpoint, the laptop is easy to carry at just 2.79 pounds (13-inch) and 3.4 pounds (15-inch). It also comes with a Windows Hello camera, as well as a USB-C port, which is something Surface fans have been asking for for a long time.
