Surface Laptop Studio review: A better Surface Book, a missed opportunity
The Surface Laptop Studio proves that Microsoft has learned from the mistakes of the Surface Book — well, most of them. Instead of over-engineering a way to have a detachable screen on a powerful notebook, the Laptop Studio’s display simply tilts forward. Press it down even further, and it turns into an angled digital easel, similar to its larger sibling, the Surface Studio. That hinged screen isn’t entirely unique — we’ve also seen similar implementations on the HP Spectre Folio and Acer’s ConceptD 7— but it’s still distinctive enough to justify a spot in the Surface family.
