First Look at Microsoft’s new matte black Surface Laptop 2 with 14.5 hrs battery

Microsoft has just announced the first refresh of its Surface Laptop since it was originally launched and along with all new processing components, it now comes in a matte black finish. The new Surface Laptop 2 starts at $999 and is available to order starting today, with shipments expected later this month 16th October.

The matte black finish on the Surface Laptop 2 is rather striking — it’s deep, dark, and well saturated, giving the machine a stealthy finish. That is until you touch it, where like many other aluminum laptops with black finishes, it collects fingerprints with ease. Aside from the new finish, Microsoft says the keyboard is redesigned to be quieter and easier to type on, and in the brief time I spent with the machine, I found its keyboard to be rather silent. Though, to be fair, it’s rather loud in the demo area Microsoft has set up here.The new Laptop is said to be 85 percent faster than its predecessor, thanks to an on-board 8th-gen Quad Core Intel processor. The battery also gets an impressive 14.5 hours, which should more than get you through that flight. That’s even more impressive because Microsoft is giving the laptop a brighter, thinner and higher-resolution display, too.
