What Surface Laptop 4 colors are available?
The Surface Laptop 4 and color options
The Surface Laptop 4 is here, and Microsoft is offering buyers a nice selection of different color options. If you're interested in getting the 13-inch version, you can get the Surface Laptop 4 in Ice Blue, Sandstone, Platinum, or Matte Black. The 15-inch versions of the device are limited to the Platinum and Matte Black color schemes.
It's also important to highlight that the Ice Blue and Platinum options feature an Alcantara fabric keyboard, while the Sandstone and Matte Black ones come with a metal keyboard. Both types of keyboard are excellent, but if you like soft and textured typing surfaces, you'll probably prefer Alcantara.
Why should you get the Surface Laptop 4?
There are many reasons to get the Surface Laptop 4 beyond its nice selection of colors. Arguably the best thing about the device is the fact that it can be configured with a variety of powerful 11th Gen Intel or AMD Ryzen 4000 processors, all of which will be productivity powerhouses. These processors come with Intel Iris Xe and Radeon RX Graphics, respectively, which are both very capable as well. Up to 32GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 1TB of storage is available, too, meaning that you'll never have to worry about running out of memory or storage. Also, both the 13-inch 2256 x 1504 and 15-inch 2496 x 1664 touch-enabled displays are pretty sharp and will be excellent for both work and recreational activities. The battery life is awesome, too, as the device is capable of lasting for 17-19 hours before needing a recharge.
When it comes to connectivity, the Surface Laptop 4 features full Wi-Fi 6 support and a suite of useful ports that include a USB-C, USB-A, Surface Connect, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack port. Bluetooth 5.0 is also present here, meaning that you can make use of your favorite Bluetooth computer accessories. The device is also only 2.84 lbs (13-inch) or 3.4 lbs (15-inch) and is only just over a half-inch thick, allowing you to carry it around with you easily.
Overall, the Surface Laptop 4 is simply an excellent device all-around, and it's arguably one of the best Windows laptops available.
