Microsoft today updated its Surface Series to Surface Laptop 4. You can now choose between 13.5 '' and 15 '' AMD or Intel processors.

Both sizes come with Intel's latest 11th generation processors or AMD's Ryzen 4000 processors.

Microsoft will launch Surface Laptop 4 on April 15 in the United States, Canada, and Japan. AMD model starts at $ 999 and Intel model starts at $ 1,299.

The price difference may be due to the fact that Microsoft is not using the latest AMD 5000 series processors here.

Instead, Microsoft will use AMD Zen 2-based chips for AMD Ryzen Surface Edition processors.

However, the performance between Intel and AMD can be somewhat similar.

Because of these processor improvements, Microsoft promises to improve performance by up to 70% compared to Surface Laptop 3, and battery life can be extended.

Microsoft promises 19 hours of battery life for the 13.5-inch AMD model and 17.5 hours for the 15-inch AMD model.

Intel Surface Laptop 4 13.5 hours has a battery life of 17 hours, while the largest 15 ”model has 16.5 hours of battery life.

Both Intel models are equipped with Intel's latest Iris Xe graphics, so games like "Overwatch" can run at 1080p resolution.

Surface Laptop 4 keeps the same design as Surface Laptop 3 shipped in 2019.

There is a USB-C port, USB-A port, headphone jack, and Microsoft Surface Connect charging port.
