The 13.5" Surface Laptop is FINALLY competitive this year. The AMD base model is pretty good value and has great battery life.

I'm not an apple fanboy but man you are so off the mark when you say that surface laptops compete with the M1 in terms of performance. The M1 destroys desktop X86 cpus in. There are countless reviews on youtube from both windows and mac reviewers showing this. Maybe for the average person who doesn't edit video, or do any type of cpu intensive work you could say they are competitive but that's about it. The macbook air is also fanless, dead silent, runs cool, and as you even admit has a significantly better battery life. Next year's surface 5 should be much better when it comes out based on Qualcom's latest and greatest. It's now an arms race and both intel and AMD have some major catching up to do.

I guess the one thing they do have on top is the fact that it's touch screen. I'd prob still go for a macbook for that kind of laptop personally, as someone who uses both Windows and MacOS regularly. but for someone that is looking for a windows device, it seems quite a bit better than the last year's model. which is nice, I can now recommend them over some other competitor even in the windows market.

usually I really love your videos but this one is kinda weird and i'll explain: first of all you say you don't want to compare performance via benchmarks but you do so to compare between the surface laptops and lets be honest we all know that in benchmarks and real life usage the mac will probably win against the highest configuration surface that costs double the price. second the macs gives the same performance across all configs third the build quality of the mac is superior so in conclusion you are saying that you will recommend to get a surface to a person who doesn't care about the OS although it is inferior to the mac and cost more???? (inferior in regards of battery life, performance,speakers,camera,mics and build quality) put those things a side i really love your channel and i think you are great! keep on making superb reviews and recommend honestly always :) x

This is a shameful review. The Surface Laptop 👎 doesn't even come closer to the power and performance of the M1 MacBooks 13" - Air and Pro -, check some real test done around and you'll quickly understand it. Don't buy it. If you wanna waste your money and then regret it later... go ahead !

In terms of fluidity, will the x86 surpass arm?
Dustbin Saves you
X86 is a much older and slower developing architecture than ARM, both of them are just as capable but ARM is definitely surpassing x86 in all areas except desktop grade chips (even that is excluding apple silicon which is so good)

I think those are great battery life’s but I wish they(Laptop manufactures in general) gave more realistic numbers. I have had to explain to a lot of average Joe’s why the battery number isn’t worth paying attention to, or should at least be halted. These people aren’t going to know/bother to drop power settings and it may be a significant reason they bought the thing. Especially with the the crap Microsoft is pulling from your tests, even I don’t even know if they can reach what they say.

Those who like more performance for less money the M1 MacBook Air outperforms both of the two Surfaces shown here. Yes, the Surfaces are comparative to the Air but on the slow side. Those who want to do productivity on the go without being plugged, both Surfaces drop their performance significantly so I wouldn’t call them comparative to M1 anymore for everybody knows that Macs, plugged or unplugged perform the same.

Dave, you're being very polite in this video with your "they're lying in their marketing BUT i dOn'T cArE". Grow a pair and call them on their shit. Edit: I dunno, but maybe you're worried because they might be sending you "free review samples"? If so, you've got 3M+ subs & almost a million views on this video alone.

I don't think it was covered, unless I wasn't paying attention, but does the performance on the surface laptops throttle when disconnected from the charger? That's always been my concern with windows devices historically is that as soon as the charger is off they don't want to give max performance

Love Apple products. I have an iPad Pro, iPhone 11, AirPod Pros, and the Apple watch. However, I just bought the surface 4 because i need to run Windows for work. I work in finance and Mac just isn’t compatible with most of the business software I deal with, and not supported by our IT dept. Wish it wasn’t that way, but here we are. That being said, the surface laptop 4 is a very nice machine for $1000. It was between this and the dell XPS 13, which was more expensive for comparable performance of the AMD version of the Surface 4. Very happy with my choice.

Uh, in addition to the extra-long battery life on the MacBook, you failed to mention that the M1 MacBook SMOKES either Surface tablet in processing power. Why didn't you include the M1 MacBook in your charts? It would have been quite embarrassing for Microsoft. And think of this: The Surface laptop is one of Microsoft's top-end ultrabook laptops, where the M1 MacBook is totally an entry-level product (wait 'til the M1X and M2 SOC appear later this year). I feel that this review is biased toward Microsoft, sort of similar to these ridiculous commercials Microsoft and Intel are airing that carefully fail to compare processing power in any way. Additionally, where's the MacBook cooling fan noise?

why is the intel version more expensive, are they out of touch with the current state of CPUs?, 20% higher cost on the i7 vs ryzen 7 & ryzen 5 vs i5 makes no sense, they aren't a gaming laptop, so why would you want to pay more for worse performance, worse battery life and worse temps

Dave, Absolutely love your videos but could you give an update to your comparison based on MaxTechs review? His video breaks down the benchmarks (with and without chargers) as well as real world performance. It appears by every objective measure, the M1 MacBook Air is superior. Additionally with parallels 16.5, users now have the option to use windows simultaneously with macOS and still get better performance (granted some things such as battlenet through parallels doesn’t work as of now but will get better with time). I have linked both videos below for ease of reference. Surface Laptop 4 vs M1 MacBook Air selosk.info/class/video/ba6FuX-bv3qap2A.html Parallels 16.5 selosk.info/class/video/pouXs3GWl4SZpYk.html

First time watching your channel and just want to make an observation. You noted that the MacBook has an achievable battery life of 20 hours and decided it has a useable life of 13 hours. That's fair. Then you noted that you couldn't even achieve the claimed 19hrs for the surface. You managed to get 14hrs on the lowest power settings, but still gave it a useful life of 11hrs and called it competitive. I'm not sure about that.

There is still a benefit of the M1 Mac. On battery power the Mac can go full performance. Whereas the Surface will throttle performance on battery power even with the best performance option enabled. And people can’t even use the Macs are overpriced thing.

I see quoted battery life times and I get no where near that level. I can use up my M1 Macbook Air battery in 4-5 hours of normal use, better than 2-3 hours of my 10 year old macbook pro but not the 15-20 hours claimed.
