You can slide the display on the Surface Laptop Studio forward to put it into Studio mode and explore your creativity, watch Netflix, and more. At other times, the device can act as a standard laptop.
The transformers-like capabilities are achieved via the new Dynamic Woven Hinge that allows the laptop to enter Studio mode.
You can pull the screen further to make it horizontal and the device looks like a tablet. Then you can pull out the Surface Slim Pen 2 and use the device as a slate to scribble anything you want or sketch whatever you want.
It also comes with a 1080p HD camera that delivers sharper images, especially in low light conditions using AI features custom developed for Surface and Windows 11.
To add further, the laptop is also compatible with the Surface dial that enables off-screen interactions.
