Last year, alongside the Surface Pro 8 and Surface Go 3, Microsoft also announced a new funky notebook called the Surface Laptop Studio.

The Surface Laptop Studio is essentially a regular notebook but with a special hinge that allows the screen to tilt forward for pure touch interaction or fold flat for use as a tablet.

Microsoft said it was designed for creative professionals who wanted a machine that they could draw on more easily but without compromises on performance and portability.

To recap, the Surface Laptop Studio has a 14.4-inch PixelSense Flow display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, 120Hz refresh rate, and a resolution of 2400 x 1600 pixels.

It's powered by Intel's Tiger Lake H-series mobile processors and can be equipped with up to 32GB of memory and up to 2TB of SSD storage.

For users demanding more, you can also equip your Surface Laptop Studio with discrete graphics in the form of Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3050 Ti that comes with 4GB of GDDR6 memory.

As for ports, it has two USB-C USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 ports, a Surface Connect port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Sadly, there are no memory card readers of any sort.
