Portability and Design

The Surface Laptop 4 has a starting weight of 2.79 pounds and thickness of 0.57 of an inch for the 13.5-inch model, while the 15-inch model weighs 3.4 pounds and measures 0.58 of an inch thick. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 is a bit heavier at 3 pounds and slightly thicker, too, measuring at 0.61 of an inch thick.

The form factor on the Surface Laptop 4 will remain the same as on the third-gen model, though there is a new “ice blue” color being offered for the 13.5-inch model. Two keyboard finishes are also available on the 13.5-inch model-- Alcantara fabric or metal.

For the Alcantara model, the color options are platinum or ice blue, while the model with the metal keyboard finish is available in matte black or sandstone colors. The 15-inch model only offers platinum or matte black, and does not have an option for Alcantara fabric around the keyboard.
