CyberShack’s view – nice design and lots to covet

Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2022 is the new Surface Book minus a tablet

Instead of a removable Book 3 style tablet screen, this has a cantilever hinge (like the Acer ConceptD Ezel). Book users will lament that, but the tablet suffered from poor battery life and flaky Magnetic Hinge. This offers a more reliable design.

It has 2 x Thunderbolt 4 ports, and the Surface Connect port to make the best use of the TB4 port. It still has a three-pole 3.5mm port.

Early international reviews comment on the excellent hinge design, bright, colour accurate, 3:2 screen and keyboard/trackpad (now 1.3” throw mechanical with haptic feedback). They also suggest battery life is shorter than claimed and that the H processor is mid-range in performance.
