FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions
Overview

Yes, an i7/32/1TB SKU in black metal is available on Surface Laptop 3 15” (order-driven config.

Same great 720p HD camera that allows users to look their best even in low light scenarios.

There is currently no POR for i5/16/256 on Laptop, as the i7/16/256 price point is strong there was less reason to drive a closely priced i5/16 configuration. However, the team is listening to feedback on the business case and will let this group know if/when there is an update to POR to share.

“With our continued sourcing processes and commitments from our suppliers, we are confident in our ability to support the planned lifecycle for our current generation of Surface devices.”

USB has always focused on fast transfer speeds and power support for peripherals.

Today, we’re thinking about how we bring the best USB experiences to market across our portfolio for our customers. This means prioritizing:

  • *USB-C 3.1 Gen 2, which is capable of 10 Gbps data transfer speeds across our product portfolio *4K video out support for dual monitors.

While Thunderbolt-enabled ports also deliver fast data transfer and video out support, what customers are often asking for with Thunderbolt is support for peripherals that add external GPU support to their existing device. We’d prefer instead to get those customers into the right device that has the performance for the tasks they want to accomplish.

Yes. Confirmed support of aggressive roaming.

Yes, Wi-Fi 6, BT 5.0 is integrated.

LPDDR4X-3733MHz

  • 13” weight: 2.76lbs-Alcantara; 2.89lbs-Metal
  • 15” weight: 3.40 lbs. – Metal only

All SKUs have fans.

Common Questions

On Surface Laptop 3 generally black/color options will generally only be available on the i5/8/256 configuration and above.

The USB-C implementation on Surface Laptop 3 will not support Thunderbolt, however, we support the experiences customers need (which has traditionally led them to request Thunderbolt support). These scenarios include supporting 2x 4k monitors at 60Hz, as well as high speed data transfer. As we will have a silicon diversity strategy, it would not have made sense to create inconsistency across our lineup by supporting an Intel-proprietary protocol, but the outcome to focus on is that our products will support the uses customers need most.

Commercial SKUs for all four Surface Laptop 3 will ship with 19H1. Surface Laptop 3 will support downgrading to 1809, aka the "Windows 10 October 2018 Update" (known as "RS5" internally). The factory will switch our Fall 2019 devices to shipping with 19H2 (the anticipated Fall 2019 release) sometime in early 2020 per our usual timeline of factory switching over to latest Fall release a few months after launch.

Yes, though the charging experience will vary depending on the wattage of the power supply. A 7 W cell phone charger will provide a very different experience than a higher-wattage PSU aimed at a PC. For reference, our Surface Laptop 3 will ship with 65 W power supply units (PSUs) in the box. Our recommendation will always be that customers use Surface Connect for the best charging experience. Plus, the Fast Charging experience will only be possible via Surface Connect.

Intel has integrated numerous Wi-Fi tuning settings originally designed to mitigate issues arising from poorly designed networks or sub-optimal environments. You can manage these from PowerShell. <details>

Yes, but only by skilled technicians following Microsoft provided instructions.

Yes

  • No. Our connector is USB-C only, which supports the vast majority of peripherals that our customers use.
  • Thunderbolt is primarily useful today for external GPU docks. We have not seen accessory makers adopt Thunderbolt broadly enough to justify the tradeoffs required to support it. We will continue to evaluate this based on customer feedback and ecosystem trends.
Surface Laptop 3 13″

Surface Laptop 3 13” is the perfect everyday laptop for those that value beauty, price and performance in a thin and light design with a choice of bold colors to stand out.

  • Surface Laptop 3 13” comes with a new color option (Sandstone) and the choice between Alcantara® material or new metal palm rest - available in Sandstone or Matte Black.
  • Under the hood, Surface Laptop 3 13” features a 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor for more graphics performance, more CPU performance, and all-day battery life.
  • Surface Laptop 3 13”’s trackpad is 20% larger than that of Surface Laptop 2, allowing for easier navigation, and improved typing experience.

The biggest differentiation between the two include:

  • Surface Laptop 3 15” has a 15” PixelSense™ display and Surface Laptop 3 13” has a 13.5” PixelSense™ display. The consumer edition of Surface Laptop 3 15” features a custom AMD processor whereas both the consumer and commercial versions of Surface Laptop 3 13” has a 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor.
  • Surface Laptop 3 13” has both Alcantara® and metal finishes whereas Surface Laptop 3 15” is exclusively available in a metal finish.
  • Surface Laptop 3 13” is available in new Sandstone, Matte Black, Platinum and Cobalt Blue.
  • Platinum and Cobalt Blue have Alcantara® material keyboards while Sandstone and Matte Black have metal keyboards.

We appreciate that our customers value choice. With the release of Surface Laptop 3 13”, we want to give customers the option to select the best option for them.

We have continually heard positive feedback on offering Surface Laptop 2 in different colors. We saw Surface Laptop 3 13” as an opportunity to update the color options to include a bold new color, along with three returning colors.

With the use of USB-C we can offer data, video, and power in a single port. As the ecosystem continues to evolve, we want to make sure we are meeting customers’ needs now and in the future.

Surface Laptop 3 13”’s significantly improved keyboard makes typing even more comfortable and enjoyable, and it is quieter than Surface Laptop 2.

Surface Laptop 3 13”’s keyboard now comes with the choice between classic Alcantara® material, or new metal finish.

Other changes include:

  • Industry-leading typing comfort with easier navigation on the new, 20% larger trackpad
  • Small gaps around keys and premium keycap paint enables a smoother, distraction free typing experience in ambient lighting conditions.
  • New function row key layout allows for better screen reader experience.

  • Surface Laptop 3 15” is available in a cool, new metal finish with choice of Matte Black and Platinum.
  • No, each Surface product offers its own balance of form and function to help with unique sets of tasks. Surface Book 2 is still a great option for those that require powerhouse performance, like STEM professionals (designers, developers, engineers) or creative professionals that require the extra performance provided by this product.
  • Meanwhile, Surface Laptop is a thinner and lighter option for those that prefer a more traditional form that still stands out with style and speed for everyday tasks.
