There were plenty of rumors leading up to Microsoft's fall 2019 Surface event that a bigger Surface Laptop was in the cards, and Microsoft gave us our first official look with the debut of the 15-inch Surface Laptop 3 this week. Set for an October 22 launch, the 15-inch version differentiates itself not only in size, but also by running on customized AMD Ryzen CPUs and ditching the Surface Laptop's signature Alcantara fabric covering around the keyboard.

The 15-inch Surface Laptop 3 is certainly an interesting addition to Microsoft's lineup. For more, you can get a closer look at the device in our hands-on video above. Otherwise, the Surface Laptop 3 is available to preorder now, starting at $999 for the 13-inch model and $1,199 for the 15-inch model.
