NEW Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 Unboxing and First Impressions!
You know what time of year it is you guys surface time and you might or might not have heard, but the surface laptop 4 was announced and that’s what we’ve got inside of here and we got it in nice, color too, but let’s get inside of here. Using of course, our kunai Applause, another box, okay, that’s cool, though this is the real box ow that did not touch you. Okay, so here it is oh baby. So here we have the brand new surface laptop 4. This is the 13.5 inch version. You know there’s. Also the 15 inch, but we opted for the smaller one over here, because i, like the idea of a super portable high end laptop like this. That one was on purpose but, as you guys can see here, this comes in the new ice blue color. And if you guys know me, you know i had to go for this one, but they do still have the standard surface colors available as well, and this is also the intel model. They also come with amd’s new chips. So if you’re not an intel fan – and you want to go amd – you have that option all right, so let’s take a look at it. Shall we so we have it right? Up top actually surface laptops came in a blue color before this is a different version of blue. This is that ice. Blue i’ll show you guys some b roll of the other blue version, but this is nice.
I’Ll, take anything blue. You guys know me um, but also inside of the box. We’Ve got some paperwork and our charger right here, pretty standard, surface charger carl. How many of these do we have a lot and crazy thing is when i go look for one it’s very hard. That is, that is weird, because we love surface products over here everybody. I think everybody on the team has a surface, and so we got a ton of chargers all over the place but that’s. Essentially all you get inside of the box very minimal, unboxing uh, but let’s actually take a look at the surface itself. Y’All ready you ready. Okay, there’s only like a little bit of tape here, it’s, not super satisfying, but here you have you guys. Here we have the new surface laptop 4., but just taking a quick look around it’s got a similar design to what we’ve seen with previous surface laptops. But on this side we have a usb port and a usbc as well as a headphone jack, and on the other side you have your surface connect port so that you can go ahead and charge it up. Shall we oh look at that? This is very different. On the inside so on the inside, you guys might know this there’s. Usually this alcantara finish so it’s got like this. Nice soft touch with like a fabric feeling material, but you can also opt for a metal version if you’re into that.
Maybe you don’t want this to get dirty over time or something you can go for the metal version. I like this. This is like a strong mix of blue gray i’m, getting like blue gray vibes, but anyway, i’m excited for this because, like i said before, i’m always looking for a nice inexpensive, not really super inexpensive. I think these retail – or they start at 9.99, but always looking for a good value laptop and i know surface, usually delivers. So we got to see what’s up with the latest and greatest one all right. So we’ve got our surface laptop all set up. Now you might be wondering what’s different about this one, this time around. Of course, we’ve got upgraded processors. This one is carrying an intel core i7 processor, like i said before, you can get amd versions as well, but my particular version also has 16 gigs of ram 512 gigs of ssd storage. We’Ve got a hd camera which is supposed to be better in low light situations. So, if you don’t have an abundance of light, it should still perform well. Shall we test it out let’s? Do this let’s kill that light yeah? This is pretty meh lighting, okay, so we’ve got our camera open over here looks decent turn off man cave. This is actually surprising. We’Ve got one light source over there and this does not look bad. Okay. Let’S, do a call get out the frame i’ll just mess with you let’s.
Do a video carl let’s see yeah we’re, recording now it’s, okay, for this lighting situation, not bad, but it’s, definitely a bit on the fuzzy side, but this is really bad lighting set man cave to 100. You know this. This really isn’t bad for, like you know, just a regular built in webcam i’m, not i’m, not mad at it. What you think jay just like i can’t, see nothing from here, so their built in hd camera does look pretty decent. It definitely performed well in low light where it might not be the sharpest thing in the world, but from just what i could tell you could see me clear as day. So if i didn’t have an abundance of light, i wouldn’t feel too bad for the person on the other side of the camera. Trying to watch me because they’d be able to see me pretty clearly that’s, just my first impression. Speaking of webcams, the microphones on here have also been improved. Now we have studio microphones, so we’re supposed to get better audio quality and we actually just did a recording. So maybe we could play some of that back and kind of hear how it sounds. Okay, so from what i can tell i’m gon na put up the brightness for a second, you guys, i’m, a blind, wow that’s, actually really impressive. I sound better than carl does because carl’s a bit further away, but i like the way i sound here – definitely a bit on the fuzzies that’s, pretty clean, that’s clean audio.
Now those are some pretty good things to see in today’s day and age, where webcams and microphones are really important, because so many things are going digital. So many video conferences are happening. It’S really important stuff, so it’s good to see that they kind of upped the quality in those aspects, but some of the other things that you can come to expect from a surface device is an amazing typing experience. The keyboard seems pretty unchanged here. You’Ll still get that really awesome typing experience. The surface keyboards are easily some of the best, if not the my favorite keyboard, on a laptop ever so glad that that’s here and carl you had my other the blue surface laptop. What do you think about like the alcantara and like the keyboard experience? Do you remember it because i know you use the surface book now um, if you don’t, remember you guys, never mind wha. Why why? Why would we ask? Can i talk? Can i talk? Thank you tell me, the keyboard experience was amazing. He lying are you making stuff up right now he doesn’t remember this is why it’s, not your average carl okay and when it comes to the screen surface, is still rocking that three by two aspect ratio. So you know it’s slightly different from the 16×9 when you’re watching videos, you know you’re gon na have those little borders at the top and bottom not a big deal, since this is a nice high quality screen, of course, it’s touch screen as well.
So if you go ahead and pick up like the surface pen, you’ll be able to draw on it, take advantage of all the things that the surface pen offers so that’s nice there’s, just no, where to actually put the pen there’s, no magnets, for it to actually Stay on it, but it does support it. If you want that and that’s like a big part of like the surface experience but surface devices are amongst the few laptops, where i really trust the accuracy of the colors it’s, usually surface products or mac products, where i feel like, i can trust the screen to Do some of the video and photo stuff that we do over here, so you can definitely feel confident that you’re getting a nice screen here, but this is easily one of those devices where if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. We’Ve got all the standard things that we expect on a surface device here. The design is mostly the same. Of course we got upgraded, specs that same touch screen nice keyboard same ports.
