Microsoft introduced several new devices at its Surface event in September, including the new Surface Laptop Studio.
The thing that stands out the most about Microsoft’s newest laptop is its unique hinge. The Laptop Studio seems to be a part of the Surface Pro and a part of the Surface Laptop for a completely strange device. Users will be able to open and use the Laptop Studio like a typical laptop or adjust the screen to be comfortable for drawing and even lay it (almost) flat like a tablet.
The Laptop Studio features a 14.4-inch ‘PixelSense Flow’ touchscreen with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz and a resolution of 2400 x 1600 pixels (201ppi). The Studio also retains the classic 3: 2 aspect ratio of the Surface line.
It runs Windows 11 and has Intel 11th Gen Core H35 i5-11300H or i7-11370H CPUs with 16 or 32 GB of RAM. For graphics, customers can configure Studio with Intel Iris Xe graphics on the i5 or Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3050 Ti on the i7. There are a few other options for the commercial versions of Studio.
Additionally, the Laptop Studio sports Microsoft’s new Surface Slim Pen 2 and ‘Quad Omnisonic’ speakers with Dolby Atmos. For ports, Laptop Studio offers a Surface Connect port, two USB 4.0 ports with Thunderbolt 4 support, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Microsoft singles out the Surface Laptop Studio as a great choice for creators, with powerful performance and tools designed for creators to draw, sketch, design, and more.
Surface Laptop Studio will cost $ 2,049 in Canada and will be available for book from today on the Microsoft website. It will go on sale from October 5.
