When you’re choosing a laptop, you know the sort of things you’re meant to be looking for. A lightning-fast processor. Vaults of storage space. Gigabytes upon gigabytes of RAM. But if we’re honest, we also want a bit of kit we can feel proud showing off. Something that will do the job, sure, but also looks striking while doing it. Happily, the new Microsoft Surface is exactly that; a supremely powerful laptop with the kind of clean, elegant design you’d expect housing cutting-edge tech.

With a sleek silhouette available in a range of striking tone-on-tone colour combinations including warm burgundy, the new Surface has been specifically designed to complement your look. A suede-feel Alcantara-covered keyboard and palm rest adds a tactile sense of luxury, while the lightweight build means you don’t have to choose between power and travelling light – weighing in at just over a kilo (or the same as one pineapple), and with up to 14.5 hours of battery life, it’s easy to pop in your bag and will keep you connected all day long.  

And speaking of power, the Surface has plenty inside to back up its eye-catching looks. The headline info? Lightning-quick running speeds – courtesy of 8GB RAM and an i5 processor capable of hitting up to 3.1GHz. An intuitive 13.5-inch PixelSense™ touchscreen display, protected by Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 for the more butter-fingered among us. Storage for days thanks to a 256GB hard drive, and gorgeous Ultra-HD playback for when finishing that presentation takes a back seat to the serious business of Netflix-binging.

Balancing model good looks with a triple-whammy of performance, portability and battery life, it’s the perfect laptop to see you through long days in style.
