You get an anodized aluminum design that is equipped to resist scratches and the bottom portion is made of aluminum and polycarbonate resin. You would definitely get a feel of using a premium quality laptop and it also comes in a set of 3 colors – Platinum, Ice Blue, and Sandstone. However, based on the color that you are about to choose the storage configuration might vary.
Talking about the weight, it is light about 2.49 pounds, and quite compact. The sizes are 10.95 inches wide, 8.12 inches deep, and 0.62 inches thick. The size is perfect for carrying the device around without any hesitance. This notebook is meant for students as well as workers who have to commute to work and also it will fit in your bag easily.
The laptop keyboard would feel satisfying when you type and comes with a key travel feature and spring feedback. You would never be bored while typing on Surface Laptop Go 3. However, the keyboard does not come with a backlight function which the Gen Z buyers might miss. But, there is one key that is the backlight and it is the fingerprint sensor and you get to type your pin even in the dark.
The touchscreen is 12.4 inches and has a 1536 x 1024 resolution with a 3.2 aspect ratio. You get to enjoy all your web series and binge-watch on the vivid and bright screen. However, the glare on the screen on a sunny day might feel to be distracting.
It comes with a 720p web cam which results in a bit of grainy images. Also, if you have to go through multiple video calls or video meetings, then the camera quality might feel to be quite low.
Performance – Comfort, Connection, and Battery Life
You get a 12th generation Intel chip on Surface Laptop Go 3, with a Core i5 processor and Intel Iris Xe Graphics card. You can go through multiple browsing sessions with word processing and also send emails without any hesitance. However, you might often feel that the laptop is getting heated up, but it won’t feel slow no matter the amount of work you would be doing on this laptop.
Talking about the battery life, after a full charge it can be used for 15 hours as claimed by Microsoft but practically it didn’t reach the mark. You might have to plug the charger after every 4 hours of use. However, you can extend the duration by changing settings such as brightness, background running task, etc. Surface Laptop Go 3 comes with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth facilities with similar ports as in its predecessors.
