When comparing specs, the Surface Laptop 2 provides some smart performance upgrades, but almost everything else is identical to the previous Surface laptop. That includes its design, which is still 0.6 inches thick and weighs in at 2.8 pounds. The 13.5-inch display on the Surface Laptop 2 has a familiar 2256 x 1504 resolution, but its 1,500:1 contrast ratio should make a gorgeous panel even better. For what it’s worth, Microsoft claims it’s using the thinnest LCD panel on a touchscreen laptop.
