Microsoft has officially announced the Surface Laptop 4. It offers 11th Gen Intel CPU and AMD Ryzen 4000 CPU options and stylish design updates for the Surface line of laptops. However, those two perks come at a cost — a literal one.
The Surface Laptop 4 starts at $999 and only goes up in price from there if you want anything more than the bare minimum configuration. If you love the Surface line, prefer to have the latest iterations of tech possible, and crave the power of, say, an AMD Ryzen 7 4980U CPU or 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1185G7, then the decision's a no-brainer. But for those who are undecided: which way are you leaning?

On the one hand, the Surface Laptop 4 is a cool machine. On the other, having to spend four figures for an incremental upgrade of the Surface Laptop 3 might not cut it for everyone. It's not like the CPU upgrades are a game-changer, and the aesthetic updates also don't reinvent the wheel. Are they enough to sway you, though?
Alternatively, if you've yet to adopt a Surface laptop, does this one look like it's the perfect fit for you? If you've yet to dip your feet in the Surface pool, we'd love to hear about your level of interest in Microsoft's latest model.
