微软Surface Laptop 2 (Core i5, 256 GB) 笔记本电脑评测

Andreas Osthoff, Felicitas Krohn (translated by Zewei Shen), 01/29/2019
Kaby Lake Laptop / Notebook Touchscreen Ultrabook Windows

屏幕素质高,接口选项相对较弱。 微软推出的新款Surface Laptop 2是旧版型号的略微改版,带有最新的处理器。总的来说,这是台表现均衡的机子。我们对3:2屏幕特别满意,但不幸的是,微软还是没有改善接口选项。

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
46.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 26 ms rise
↘ 20.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 99 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (25.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
69.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 34.8 ms rise
↘ 34.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 98 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (40.4 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9554 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

微软Surface Laptop 2 笔记本电脑评测. Test unit provided by Cyberport

正如开头所提到的,微软所做的主要是更新了旧的Surface。 Surface Laptop 2提供最新的处理器,具有四个核心,更安静的冷却系统,略微改进的扬声器和新的颜色选项。屏幕继续作为该设备的亮点,并以其精确的彩色显示结合良好的亮度和高对比度给我们留下深刻印象。虽然4K显示器能提供更高的分辨率,但Surface Laptop 2的图像还是非常逼真,我们非常喜欢它。 3:2显示屏在使用生产力应用程序时具有优势。如果用户主要对观看视频感兴趣,那么使用16:9面板可能会更好。输入设备也非常有说服力,考虑到设备的纤薄程度,键盘的行程相对较长,因此打字很舒服。

我们发现了有关此设备的两个主要缺点。第一个是机子本身,虽然它具有高质量和高稳定性,但基本上不可能打开。这意味着用户甚至无法清洁风扇。第二个问题是缺少雷电3端口。该设备只提供了Surface连接端口,并提供一系列的连接设备。当然,微软希望保留这种连接器是有道理的;但是,微软应该包含雷电3而不是留下mini-DisplayPort接口。这将使该设备缺少战未来的能力,且并不能连接到eGPU。另一个缺点是缺少SD卡读卡器-特别是因为这台设备非常适合图像处理。

“如果您正在寻找具有良好显示效果,安静的操作和良好输入设备的高品质笔记本电脑,那么微软的Surface Laptop 2应该是一个不错的选择。虽然没有雷电3端口这一事实令人失望且难以理解,但目前这并不影响日常使用。”

尽管如此,Surface Laptop 2提供了非常好的软件,特别是考虑到其目标群体,其中包括临时用户和需要良好显示和触摸屏的人。价格与性能之比很好,但不幸的是,微软已经为更多的RAM和SSD存储设置了非常高的溢价,配置限制(取决于颜色,RAM等)使事情变得不必要地复杂化。 Surface Laptop 2在我们的比较中击败了新的MacBook Air,Surface Laptop在不考虑操作系统的前提下对于大多数用户来说可能是更好(和更便宜)的选择。寻找更紧凑设备的用户应该考虑考虑XPS 13,它还提供更多硬件和服务选项。
