Thank for your question! Unfortunately that I don’t have a Surface Laptop with me, however, as my quick research, I can tell you that:

  • Surface Laptop with Intel Core M3-7Y30 is fanless.
  • Surface Laptop with Intel Core i5-7200U and i7-7660U do come with a fan for active cooling.

    System Noise
    The system fan will idle during low loads for a truly silent experience for tasks like word processing or checking email. Prolonged video playback or browsing will bump the fan to just 29 dB(A) which is still essentially inaudible in a home or office setting. In fact, the fan is so lethargic that we had to run the first benchmark scene of 3DMark06 twice in a row in order to get the fan to a steady 30.3 dB(A). This particular configuration of the Surface Laptop is subsequently one of the quieter Ultrabooks we’ve tested when under typical day-to-day loads.
