Microsoft's Surface Laptop Studio offers a unique design

On the lookout for a new top laptop? There are plenty of options to pick from that pack big power – which are ideal for any work you can throw at them. If you’re not in the Apple camp, Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Studio 2 is one of the proiest devices you can get your hands on. The trouble is, it starts at $2000, and higher specced options can quickly soar up the price ladder. But there’s a deal that can get you a tricked out model for much closer to retail price.

You can bag the configuration with 32GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, a 13th-gen Intel i7 processor, and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 GPU for even less at Amazon US.

This new Surface Laptop Studio keeps the 14.4in display of its predecessor, and the overall look and feel hasn’t really changed. Look at the sides, though, and you’ll spot that connectivity has been overhauled. There’s now twin USB-C ports, a single USB-A and a microSD card reader, on top of the 3.5mm headphone port and Surface Connect port. That should make it a lot more practical than the original model, which made do with twin Thunderbolt ports and Microsoft’s limited-use Surface Connector.

Screen specs on the Surface Laptop Studio 2 are unchanged. This gets you a 2400×1600 resolution, 120Hz refresh rate 14.4in panel with HDR, 10-point multitouch and a 1500:1 contrast ratio. It also plays ball with Dolby Vision video, and is individually colour-calibrated out of the factory. Naturally it’s compatible with the Surface Slim Pen 2.
