This AI-powered machine also utilizes the Snapdragon X Elite and Plus processors, with the same 45 trillion operations per second AI processing unit found in the Surface Pro 11.

The focus on AI is further emphasized with Microsoft’s integration of Copilot, an AI assistant designed to enhance user productivity and creativity.

The Surface Laptop boasts an impressive battery life, lasting up to 20 hours of video playback on a single charge.

Pricing starts at $999.99 and climbs to $2,499.99 for the most powerful configuration with 64GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.
