Please note: Microsoft has announced the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2 (starting at $1,999.99), which upgrades its predecessor with a 13th-generation Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050, 4060 or RTX 2000 GPUs. It also comes with more ports, an “inclusive” haptic touchpad, and a base storage capacity of 512 GB SSD. Mashable is reviewing it and will revisit this choice after we complete testing.
The Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio is, as the name suggests, a laptop, but the unique pull-forward design of its 14.4-inch touchscreen display turns it into “something that’s part laptop, part drawing pad, and part tablet.” ” Perry wrote. It’s an extremely versatile content creation device – and when you factor in a 120Hz refresh rate, great 19 hours of battery life and a haptic touchpad, it’s no wonder it’ll be a Mashable Choice Award won. Perry argued that this was “pretty much the ideal way to experience Windows 11.”)
By the way, you read that right: the Surface Laptop Studio just turned two years old, and some of the specs show it. The base configuration runs on an 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor, and the minimal port selection (which was disappointing when it first debuted) is pathetic for a device that starts at $1,599.99 in 2023. Luckily, it’s relatively easy to find it on sale for hundreds of dollars off — and that makes it that much more worth it.
