Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio Now Available!
If you enjoy the power of a high-performance computer but appreciate the flexibility of a tablet, Microsoft has something for you to spend that money on! This morning they announced the official availability of the Surface Laptop Studio in Malaysia. Touted to be the most powerful Surface ever, this hybrid machine is designed with everyone in mind - developers, creatives, and gamers. What sets this 2-in-1 apart from other devices is its special "Dynamic Woven Hinge" that allows it to be used in three different positions: the typical Laptop mode, Stage mode for presentation, media consumption and gaming, and Studio mode which turns it into a tablet.
Like with everything that's fancy in the world of tech, it won't come cheap. Expect to pay more than the price of a gaming desktop for this device. Features like the 14.4” touchscreen (120Hz display) and Quad Omnisonic™ speakers, Dolby Atmos® Experience and Precision Haptic touchpad might have something to do with it. It also supports the Surface Slim Pen 2 (sold separately) and has a dedicated storage/charging compartment for it beneath the keyboard.
Here's a quick breakdown of the available versions of the Surface Laptop Studio:
|Model||Estimated Retail Price|
|Intel® Core™ i5, Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics, 16GB, 256GB SSD||RM7,399|
