Today, Microsoft announced the Surface Laptop 4, and while it's mostly the same as its predecessor, there are some minor changes. There's the much-needed spec bump, including Intel 11th-gen processors and AMD Ryzen 4000 processors. Also, Ice Blue is taking the place of Cobalt Blue in the lineup.

While those are the only differences, a key change in the configuration is that this year, Intel and AMD processors are available on both the 13.5- and 15-inch models, and both both consumer and business SKUs. Last year, the 13.5-inch model exclusively had Intel processors, while the 15-inch version had AMD in the consumer model and Intel in the business model.

Here's the full list of configurations:

Size (inches) CPU Memory (GB) Storage (GB) Colors Price Commercial price
13.5 Ryzen 5 4680U 8 256 Platinum $999 $1,099
16 $1,199 $1,299
512 Black N/A $1,699
Core i5-1135G7 8 256 Platinum $1,199
512 Platinum, Ice Blue, Sandstone, Black $1,299 $1,399
16 $1,499 $1,599
Core i7-1185G7 256 Black N/A $1,599
512 Platinum, Ice Blue, Sandstone, Black $1,699 $1,799

16 256 $1,699
512 $1,799 $1,899
32 1,024 Black $2,399 $2,499

There are a few things that you need to know here. The main thing that you're paying $100 more for in the commercial model is Windows 10 Pro instead of Windows 10 Home. Also, on the 13.5-inch model, the Platinum and Ice Blue models come with Alcantara fabric on the keyboard deck, while the rest are all aluminum.

One thing that Microsoft touted with this launch is choice, and that's definitely something that it's providing more than it did with the Surface Laptop 3. If you want to check it out, you can find it on the Microsoft Store here.
