The Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 has been rumored for some time, but a new drop of information has given insight into what to expect from the upcoming release. As was previously leaked, both AMD and Intel variants will be offered at launch which is currently expected to be on April 27 2021.

The information was provided by German tech media site WinFuture, with almost every update to the new Surface Laptop range being internal, with the exterior remaining almost unchanged from the popular Microsoft Surface Laptop 3.

As we feared, the AMD components won't be the latest mobile Ryzen 5000 hardware that was announced back at CES 2021, with only a choice of either AMD Ryzen 5-4680U or Ryzen 7 4980U CPUs being offered. The Intel offerings are better, including the latest Core 11th Generation i5-1145G7 or i7-1185G7 CPUs.
