With more and more companies expecting their employees to show up at the office at least one or two days a week (hello working Wednesday!) it is crucial to arrive equipped with a laptop that can work for both office and home use. Workers are seeking PCs that have excellent cameras and microphones, fast processors, long-lasting batteries and a sleek design. If you are ready to venture back into hybrid work, the Surface Laptop 4 is an ideal choice.
This Surface allows a bit of customization and you can choose between the 13.5” or 15” model; decide to include the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, or an AMD Ryzen™ Mobile Processors with Radeon™ Graphics Microsoft Surface® Edition; and pick among four sleek cover colors: platinum, black, ice blue or sandstone. (Looks are important if your home office doubles as the dining room table).
Regardless, you will have a laptop with fast speeds and up to 19 hours of battery life. Useful for those Teams calls that are still likely to dominate our work lives, the Surface Laptop 4 features a built-in HD front-facing camera with incredible low-light capability and a studio microphone array, ensuring you will look and sound your best. The 201 PPI, high-contrast touchscreen display, and Dolby® Atmos™ Omnisonic speakers provide an excellent cinematic experience as you transition to the couch to watch the next episode of your favorite series.
This computer also boasts an incredibly well-built keyboard that makes typing a pleasure. And if your cold, hard office needs warming up, you can choose the Alcantara keyboard finish, a unique felt-like texture that adds a bit of warmth for those having a hard time transitioning back to the office. This slim model weighs less than 3 pounds and measures less than half an inch in width, making it ideal for commuting and both business and leisure travel.
Another hybrid advantage: Surface Laptop 4 offers security out-of-the-box with integrated hardware, firmware, software and identity protection. You can control sensitive business or personal information with a removable hard drive for data retention.
To create an even better work/life experience, Microsoft has created several compatible devices that help everyone move seamlessly from work to home and from work to leisure and which enhance the Surface 4’s performance. The Surface Headphones 2+ for Business include 13 levels of active noise cancellation, innovative earcup dials, an advanced 8-microphone system for incredible voice clarity and over 18 hours of music listening time and up to 15 hours of voice calling time.
If you are spending time in the office, at home or during a working vacation, this Surface will help make all your online time much more pleasant.
