According to the details offered in the report, the Surface Laptop 4 will continue to come in 13.5-inch and 15-inch display options. Furthermore, it will retain the same design as offered by the Surface Laptop 3. This means we might see a sleek and sturdy aluminum build with a large glass trackpad.

Both the 13.5-inch and 15-inch variants will be offered in AMD Ryzen 5 4680 and Ryzen 7 4980U configurations, and Intel Core 11th Generation i5-1145G7 or i7-1185G7 CPU configurations as well. The RAM configuration maxes out to 32GB, but the maximum RAM size and even the 1TB storage are tied to Intel variants only. Other RAM and storage available options are 8GB/16GB and 128GB/256GB/512GB.
