Surface Laptop 3 Adapters and Docks

Surface Laptop 3 debuted in 2019 and carries on the defining features of the Surface Laptop line, along with improvements like the addition of a USB Type-C port. Like the previous Surface Laptops and similar Surface products, Surface Laptop 3 has a Business configuration.

 

As to the tech specifics, it depends on whether you pick a Surface Laptop 3 13.5" or 15". The palm rests can be made of metal or the standard Alcantara material. The processor can also be Intel®’s tenth-generation Core i5 or i7 and AMD Ryzen™ as the processors. Both sizes do offer up to 11.5 hours of battery life.

 

Surface Laptop 3 comes with a Windows 10 Home edition and a Pro edition for business users.

 

The Surface Laptop 3 is nothing like your traditional laptop, being the first flagship laptop to boast the impressive AMD Ryzen processor. Its battery life is also something of a legend – but you already knew that, right?

However, for a laptop, the number of ports on this machine leaves much to be desired. Considering its large size, it has just two ports – a standard USB-A 3.0 (only 5Gbs against a possible 10 Gbps on USB3.2 Gen 2 now available) and one standard USB-C 3.1. It also has a headphone jack.

This is way worse than what you’re used to with your traditional laptop, and users who lean on many peripherals would struggle with this machine. However, you can improve your experience by complementing the USB ports you get on the Surface with an external USB-C docking station like the NovaHUB USB adapter/hub.
