Microsoft Surface Laptop SE Overview
Display and Design
Microsoft Surface Laptop SE sports an 11.6-inch TFT LCD with 1366×768-pixels resolution. It has an aspect ratio of 16:9 while weighing 1.12kg only. The body measures 0.70-inch in thickness and has an all-plastic body. There also lies a hinge going up to 135-degrees. This laptop is available in a single-color configuration – Glacier.

There are two options for the processor in the device – Intel Celeron N4020 or Celeron N4120. You can also have options on memory- 4/64GB or 8/128GB. The device integrates a Nano security lock slot and firmware TPM. Further, the device gets its juice from a 35Wh battery cell which gives your 16 hours life on typical usage.
