Reviews for the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio, i7-11370H RTX A2000

60% Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio review: A 2-in-1 with niche appeal
Source: Expert Reviews English
There’s no doubt that the Surface Laptop Studio is a bold piece of laptop design and its hinged display makes a certain degree of sense, especially for people who spend a lot of their time sketching, inking and editing photos using a stylus. And, for users who love their Microsoft Surface Pro 8 but need something with a bit more oomph, the Laptop Studio makes a compelling argument for itself. For everyone else, the picture isn’t quite so clear, however, with the underpowered 11th Gen CPUs, mediocre battery life and SSD performance, plus some rather strange design decisions undermining the laptop’s general appeal. In the final analysis, unless you’re in the small group that desperately needs to work with a stylus on a daily basis, you’re probably best off giving the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio a wide berth. It simply has one too many shortcomings to be worthy of a recommendation.

The Surface Laptop Studio follows in the footsteps of the Surface Book lineup, and brings about one of the most compelling laptops in Microsoft's history. Microsoft could have gone for more powerful hardware, but in the end, it probably won't matter too much, as the unique form factor is probably the biggest selling point here.

The Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio is well-built and reasonably powerful, with a nice bright screen, great speakers, and a battery good enough to see you through a day at work. But if that’s all you care about, you would probably be better off investing in a cheaper, more powerful Windows laptop like the Dell XPS 15 OLED or the Asus Zenbook 13 OLED, which can’t match the Studio’s sound quality but make up for it with but gorgeous OLED screens. If you’re in the market for an ultraportable Windows laptop that doubles as a decent creative tool for digital artists, the Surface Laptop Studio paired with a Surface Slim Pen 2 is a powerful contender for one of the best laptops you can buy right now. The haptic feedback is cool, the sliding screen affords you a more easel-like angle for working, and the Surface Laptop Studio has the power and longevity to be a great laptop for school or work.

Hands on: The Surface Laptop Studio is my new favorite Surface
Source: XDA Developers English
Obviously, one thing I couldn’t test in my brief time with the Surface Laptop Studio is performance. I’m really excited about the new 35W processor and the new GPU, so that should be pretty interesting. Personally, I’m really excited about the product as a whole. I’m excited it fixed all of the things I didn’t like about the Surface Book, and I’m really excited about the new Slim Pen 2.

14.40":

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very old and big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal; nowadays, rather typical for 15 inch laptops.


Microsoft:

Microsoft smartphones and tablets have been tested since 2012. There are many reviews with average ratings. The reader's interest is quite given, but the market share is not big enough for the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers (as of 2016).


71%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
