Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio review: Windows 11’s flagship feels like the future

Microsoft pretty much nails both content creation and consumption with the Surface Laptop Studio, though it's a premium design that's a little rough around the edges.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio
  • Expert Rating

    4.00 / 5


  • Pull-forward design feels like the future
  • Inking experience is very good
  • Bright, high-refresh-rate display


  • Pricey
  • Display resolution steps down a bit versus Surface Book 3
  • Dynamic refresh rate feature isn't quite here

Bottom Line

Microsoft's Surface Laptop Studio feels like the wave of the future, but you'll play a little more for this content creation / consumption / gaming convertible 2-in-1 that is helping to launch Windows 11.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
