Upgrading From Surface Laptop 1 To Surface Laptop 5

I personally own a Microsoft Surface Laptop and yeap, there’s no number to it. It’s the original Surface Laptop. Since then, I’ve actually taken a look at the Surface Laptop 2, 3 and 4 and for all those revisions, I’ve never felt a need to upgrade at all. But we now have the Surface Laptop 5 and while the two might be indistinguishable at a glance, apart from the dbrand skin on mine of course, this might finally be the one to upgrade to.

Now to give a little bit of context, I bought my Surface Laptop quite a few years ago and I mainly got it to really just do simple things such as work documents, the occasional web browsing and YouTube binging and as a device to handle file transfers on the go. In that regard, it performed admirably and that’s despite it just having a dual-core Intel Core i7 7th-Gen with just 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD.
