Previously, the Surface Book allowed the screen and keyboard to be disassembled, and users could use the screen part like a tablet. Surface Laptop Studio can no longer do that, and all components are tied into one. However, to make up for this, Microsoft has given the Surface Laptop Studio a completely new design.

Users can use Surface Laptop Studio like a traditional laptop. But, users can also detach the kickstand on the back of the display so that it tilts at an angle towards their face, which Microsoft calls "Stage Mode". Users can use this mode to give presentations, watch movies or play games.

And, users can also lay this part of the screen down like a tablet. Like other Surface devices, Surface Laptop Studio supports Surface Pen, so users can write/draw directly on the screen in this mode. The Surface Pen can be "storage" on the bottom of the device.

However, it can be seen that the complicated design of the Surface Laptop Studio makes it quite thick and heavy, especially evident when in tablet mode. With a thickness of nearly 18mm and a weight of nearly 1.8Kg, it is clear that Surface Laptop Studio is not for those who prefer thin and light laptops.

As a professional laptop line, Surface Laptop Studio is equipped with a relatively strong configuration. The machine includes 11th generation Intel Core i5/i7 chip, 16 or 32GB RAM and SSD up to 2TB. The Core i5 version will use the integrated Intel Iris Xe GPU, while the Core i7 version will have an additional NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti discrete GPU.

Surface Laptop Studio's screen has a size of 14.4 inches, a resolution of 2400x1600 and a refresh rate of 120Hz. At the moment, Surface Laptop Studio has only 1 screen size.

In terms of ports, the Surface Laptop Studio includes two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a Surface Connect port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Surface Laptop Studio costs from $ 1599 and will officially be sold from October 5 to.
