Review: Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 3


Test protocol

The test protocol has been revised to offer something more complete. We now have software for autonomy measurements, as well as a thermal camera for surface heating measurements.

As far as video games are concerned, we’ve chosen not to include them, given the performance and orientation of this machine.
