Microsoft Surface Laptop 5 review: Not good enough for the price

Microsoft Surface Laptop 5: Two-minute review

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 5 is an average laptop… possibly as mid-range as it gets. While it’s technically functional and not awful, there’s very little going for this machine, especially at this price point. The market is simply too competitive for a mediocre option like this to be worth buying.

At first glance, the price isn’t too steep, with the cheapest configuration being $999 / £999 / AU$1,699. But that’s for an Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD, which is pretty bad. For that amount, you could get the far superior MacBook Air M1 (2020) instead, or even the recent macbook air m2🇧🇷 If you want something decent – like an i7, 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD – be prepared to spend around $1,700 / £1,700 / AU$2,700, which is fair for Ultrabook prices. At least it’s readily available in the US, UK and Australia.
