Surface Laptop Studio

Panay described Surface Laptop Studio as “the most powerful Surface we’ve ever made” at Microsoft, taking elements from Surface Book and Surface Studio, “bringing you the power of a desktop but also that portability needed in a laptop and then the creativity of a studio, all in one.”

“We made it for Windows 11,” he said during the event. “We made it for creators. We made it for this hybrid world.”

The notebook has a 14.4-inch PixelSense display, acting as a “a 15 inch monitor to your eyes” but feeling like “a 13 inch device,” Panay said. The mics have advanced echo control and full duplex for noisy environments. The PC has Microsoft’s first haptic trackpad, can transition from stage mode to laptop mode and an area underneath where the pen charges.

Surface Laptop Studio combines the desktop-level CPU of Intel’s 11th-generation, quad-core processor and Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti GPU. It has a high definition 1080p camera “further enhanced by AI features developed specifically for Surface and Windows 11,” such as cloud-class face tracker. Showing off Surface Laptop Studio’s potential for developers, Panay said that Microsoft developers used Surface Laptop Studio’s GPU power when prototyping the neural network for face tracker.

“It perfects exposure and lighting for you on video calls, recognizing and enhancing your face in the toughest lighting conditions no matter what you’re wearing, whether it’s a hat, sunglasses, a mask, doesn’t matter,” Panay said.
