I would highly recommend this computer to anyone looking for a powerful and versatile device.

    Very solidly built, I like the ability to pivot the screen for presentation mode, and to lay down as a tablet surface for working on photograph retouches or composing artwork. Really like having a long battery life. Excellent all around for my work purposes, and for hobby creative work. The Slim Pen II is an excellent add-on, and will see lots of use for my more artistic work. The screen images are sharp and color good. It is a bit heavy to tote around, but still portable. I highly recommend it.

    The Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio is a great blend of computing power and the latest technologies. The 14.4 inch, 3-way movement touch screen, the 11th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with the 16 GB of memory and the 512 GB of space on the hard drive will help you to achieve creative your goals. • I found Windows 11 to be an easy transition from Windows 10. It was much more seamless than previous Windows system changes I have experienced. Importing website tabs from another computer or even moving folders and information around the Surface Laptop was prompt, quick and easy. A cool new feature is facial recognition using the camera facing you. That is a great way to log in to the Surface Laptop. The light up keyboard is a great touch that I really enjoyed as well. I moved 3 GB of music, using a Type C flash drive, from another laptop to the Surface Laptop with the Thunderbolt port. It blazed a new path of how fast you can move songs only taking a few seconds to transfer! I also found this to be true with moving pictures over or even documents using the Thunderbolt 4 port. The only negative I think is the fact that there are only two Thunderbolt 4 ports. That is simply not enough in my opinion. I would like to plug in a mouse dongle, Xbox controller and flash drive, but that is 3 items and the Surface Laptop provides only two connections. I used an extra Type C hub to overcome that deficiency. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the touch pad and its enhanced feeling vibrations for a better experience but I sometimes prefer a wireless mouse so the hub helped me to add that feature. It is a preference for me, but not everyone has to do it. • The Intel Core i7 (11th Gen) with 16 GB memory and 512 SSD Platinum came well packaged and protected. Made of magnesium and aluminum the Surface Laptop has great solid feel. The sides vent the heat out of the Surface Laptop when needed. I really never even noticed that the heat was spread out there. Surface Laptop did a nice and discrete job on this feature. • The 14.4 Touchscreen has resolution of 2400×1600 pixels in a 3:2 ratio with a 120hz refresh rate. What does that mean? It has a beautifully made Touchscreen with detailed pixels providing the best picture, while the refresh rate allows the screen to keep up with your movies, gaming or music. There are three dynamic positions for the Surface Laptop: There is a regular Laptop setup, an angled Stage setup and a Studio setup. To accomplish this feat, a special “Dynamic Woven Hinge” was made to help move the Touchscreen. The images produced by the Touchscreen are vibrant, sharp and lively looking at any angle or display option you choose. I prefer the stage setup because the screen is tilted toward my eyes, making it easier to look at. It is also efficient for drawing or writing on it as well. The best option for drawing or writing is probably the Studio setup which the screen lays almost completely flat on the keyboard. I think this is pretty innovative and useful. • I play guitar and used the “PreSonus Studio One” software on the Surface Laptop. It is setup through “PreSonus Audiobox USB 96 interface” with two monitor speakers. The software allows you to record songs, edit and playback. I had no issues with lag-time, skipping or missing a beat at all. I enjoyed the “Stage” mode when recording music. If I wanted to name a song, or track or just a riff, all I had to do is just had tap on the specific field and an onscreen keyboard pops up that is plenty big and easy to use. But if you prefer a traditional Laptop feel for your music playing, the “Classic” mode and regular keyboard will work just as well. • You can multi-task easily with the Surface Laptop. You can open and keep a ton of tabs without losing speed; play complex games with intense graphics; listen to your favorite music stream or stream your favorite movie. I have used the Surface Laptop as my engine for guitar recording and software. The battery does drain pretty quickly when you play heavy loaded intense games. Of course, if you have the Surface Laptop plugged in, this “limitation” goes away. For example, Tekken 7 in HD is an intense video game with its crazy fighting styles, scenic backgrounds and unbelievable moves. During this game, battery life went down quickly when I had the Surface Laptop unplugged. But this is easily fixed by plugging the Surface Laptop into a surge protector or outlet. In contrast, the battery life pretty much lasted all day when I moved information (folder to folder or files to a Flash Drive, Thunderbolt 4 port), searched the web with open tabs, listened to a lot of music or streamed movies. I do want to add that the part of the plug that goes into the actual laptop is unconventional in a good way. It is a little larger than your average size and it is magnetic! That means you don’t have to accidentally worry about knocking the power supply out! • The Surface Slim Pen 2 is magnetic and has a button on top and a side button as well. I synced it to the Surface Laptop with Bluetooth. The Slim Pen 2 attaches and charges just underneath the front of the keyboard magnetically. It snaps securely in place and it doesn’t come off until you remove it! I used this Surface Slim Pen 2 when moving around the touchscreen instead of using my fingers. The Pen works much better and leaves no fingerprints! Tap the top of the Pen to bring up whiteboard that is available for anything from drawing to bringing pictures in to modify. • Movies that have support Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos special sound will play on the Surface Laptop. The sound of the laptop for music and/or movies is outstanding. Four speakers on the sides of the Surface Laptop put out detailed sounds. There are also 2 woofers under the keyboard that compliment the other 4 speakers, for a well rounded sound. Of course you can always hookup the Surface Laptop Bluetooth (5.1 version) and a Bluetooth capable speaker. I tried out both the speakers in the Laptop and a Bluetooth Ralis speaker. Of course the Ralis speaker sounded amazing but the speaker system inside the Laptop was top notch. I actively listened to movies I streamed from Disney+, like these Marvel movies: Antman, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Infinity War. • Music is easy to transfer with the Thunderbolt ports (size similar to a Type C but faster). There is plenty of music space when you decide how you want to setup the Surface Laptop. I put music from different genres and in mp3 and FLAC. FLAC files have the quality sound over MP3s, but the FLAC files are a lot larger in size. I chose the MP3s over FLAC files, essentially because of HD space (512GB). The sound was still outstanding and is the best I have heard from a laptop computer! • Games are stunning up to 2400×1600 pixels (if the game allows) with the NVIDIA GeoForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU! Battlefield 4 has exceptional realism and Tekken 7 complex on screen moves were no match for this Surface Laptop! The sound was also enveloping for a great experience, putting you closer to the action. The only drawback to these games is that they take up a lot of space on the HD. If you intend on using the Surface Laptop for just gaming only, the 512GB HD isn’t quite big enough for loads of high speed, intense games. There are other options of this Surface Laptop with larger HDs, you could get if you wanted. But for casual gaming, streaming, pictures, music, or guitar recording, the Surface Laptop performs exceptionally well. This Laptop is a great conduit to help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be. The Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio gets the hard work done and gets the play fun done as well. Advanced features and technologies really make this Surface Laptop, one you will want to take a look at.

I actively listened to movies I streamed from Disney+, like these Marvel movies: Antman, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Infinity War. • Music is easy to transfer with the Thunderbolt ports (size similar to a Type C but faster). There is plenty of music space when you decide how you want to setup the Surface Laptop. I put music from different genres and in mp3 and FLAC. FLAC files have the quality sound over MP3s, but the FLAC files are a lot larger in size. I chose the MP3s over FLAC files, essentially because of HD space (512GB). The sound was still outstanding and is the best I have heard from a laptop computer! • Games are stunning up to 2400×1600 pixels (if the game allows) with the NVIDIA GeoForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU! Battlefield 4 has exceptional realism and Tekken 7 complex on screen moves were no match for this Surface Laptop! The sound was also enveloping for a great experience, putting you closer to the action. The only drawback to these games is that they take up a lot of space on the HD. If you intend on using the Surface Laptop for just gaming only, the 512GB HD isn’t quite big enough for loads of high speed, intense games. There are other options of this Surface Laptop with larger HDs, you could get if you wanted. But for casual gaming, streaming, pictures, music, or guitar recording, the Surface Laptop performs exceptionally well. This Laptop is a great conduit to help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be. The Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio gets the hard work done and gets the play fun done as well. Advanced features and technologies really make this Surface Laptop, one you will want to take a look at.

    The Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio is a great blend of computing power and the latest technologies. The 14.4 inch, 3-way movement touch screen, the 11th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with the 16 GB of memory and the 512 GB of space on the hard drive will help you to achieve creative your goals. • I found Windows 11 to be an easy transition from Windows 10. It was much more seamless than previous Windows system changes I have experienced. Importing website tabs from another computer or even moving folders and information around the Surface Laptop was prompt, quick and easy. A cool new feature is facial recognition using the camera facing you. That is a great way to log in to the Surface Laptop. The light up keyboard is a great touch that I really enjoyed as well. I moved 3 GB of music, using a Type C flash drive, from another laptop to the Surface Laptop with the Thunderbolt port. It blazed a new path of how fast you can move songs only taking a few seconds to transfer! I also found this to be true with moving pictures over or even documents using the Thunderbolt 4 port. The only negative I think is the fact that there are only two Thunderbolt 4 ports. That is simply not enough in my opinion. I would like to plug in a mouse dongle, Xbox controller and flash drive, but that is 3 items and the Surface Laptop provides only two connections. I used an extra Type C hub to overcome that deficiency. There is absolutely nothi
