Surface Laptop Studio 2 review: Microsoft’s latest is faster, but is it better?

 

Microsoft's updated Surface Laptop Studio 2 boasts better specs and performance, but it isn't the update we've waited nearly two years for.

Beautiful PixelSense Flow display Robust hinge design Comfortable keyboard and trackpad Sharp webcam

Expensive Mediocre battery life Middling performance in Recommended mode

“Microsoft's Surface Laptop Studio 2 is a spec upgrade that isn't worth the extra cash.”

Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2 Review

 

Convertible touch screen becomes drafting tablet ; Latest Intel and Nvidia silicon ; Dedicated neural chip for local AI ; 120Hz screen refresh rate ; Added USB-A and microSD ; Long battery life ; Cleverly located, charging magnetic stylus holder

Surface Pen still sold separately ; Expensive ; Just-okay Adobe RGB and DCI-P3 color coverage ; AI boosts only Windows Studio Effects, for now

Microsoft's Surface Laptop Studio 2 significantly ramps up the performance with modern parts and dedicated AI processing—all while maintaining the unique pull-forward touch-screen design.

Surface Laptop Studio 2 review: this could be so much more

 

Microsoft has refreshed its Surface Laptop Studio or, as I tend to call it in my head, “that big bendy, foldy thing.” It's almost identical to its predecessor, 2021's Surface Laptop Studio , with the unique fold-over hinge that allows the screen to...

Adaptive touchpad great for accessibility ; Gorgeous build ; 120Hz display with dynamic refresh rate ; Unique convertible hinge

Short battery life ; Very expensive ; Lacks a full SD slot

I am glad that a Windows convertible for creative professionals, with this level of craftsmanship and quality, exists. But I wish it were more. I wish it could be a more powerful version of Acer’s truly innovative ConceptD line — a laptop with a...

Review: Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2

 

Microsoft's most ambitious Surface yet is a well-designed graphics powerhouse, but all that brawn comes with trade-offs in size, weight, cost, battery life, and lap feel.

Great performance on graphics tasks coupled with a stellar screen. Unique screen hinge adds some new ways of working. Touchpad is world-class.

Runs extremely hot (and that’s after “thermal capacity” work). Very heavy and a little awkward in use. Battery life is down from 12 hours to a bit over 4. Outrageously expensive.

Surface Laptop Studio 2 review: stylish upgrade ideal for digital artists

 

A great all-rounder and a digital artists' dream.

Beautiful design, stunning display ; Multiple positions for the display ; Touchscreen

Very expensive ; Poor battery life

The Microsoft Laptop Studio 2 is a pro laptop with a beautifully engineered design and a stunningly good display. It looks great at every angle and the refresh rate of 120Hz ensures everything is super-smooth. All of this quality results in a high...

Surface Laptop Studio 2 review: The quintessential Windows 11 laptop

 

A massive update in performance while losing a little battery life and gaining some size.

Excellent performance ; Multiple modes ; HDR400 is awesome ; Type-A and microSD ports ; Intel NPU and AI ; New Aluminum chassis ; Quiet fans

Extremely high price ; Surface Pen is not included ; Reflective display ; Shorter battery life ; Thicker, heavier

Surface Laptop Studio 2 is a substantial improvement over its predecessor in performance, especially with up to 64GB of RAM, an NVIDIA RTX 4060 GPU, and Intel's powerful 13th Gen Core i7 processor. While it's a smidge heavier and thicker now, the...

Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2 Review: More Ports, More Power, Little Novelty

 

The Surface Laptop Studio 2 gets 64GB of RAM, an AI co-processor, and a higher price.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2 review: No MacBook Pro moves like this

 

The Surface Laptop Studio 2 is a smart improvement on the original, adding more power under the hood and more ports on the sides without compromising the versatility of its unique sliding display.

No other laptop I've tested offers the same heady mix of power and flexibility, and I think that makes the Surface Laptop Studio 2 one of the best 2-in-1 laptops on the market.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2 Review

 

In 2021, Microsoft waved goodbye to the Surface Book for a new high-powered PC device. Now, the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2 is here.

Solid creator capabilities ; Impressive battery life ; Bright and detailed 3:2 display ; Top-tier design and portability

Can get hot and loud ; Performance falls short of rivals ; High starting price

The Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio is a MacBook Pro competitor with a twist. It doesn’t keep up with its Apple rival or comparative Windows laptops in terms of raw power but mostly makes up for it with a classy and interesting design alongside strong...
