Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio Review

Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio Review

The Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio is the most versatile professional notebook computer I've ever used. After using this device for only a relatively short period of time, it's clear that Microsoft made peace with the idea that they could, and would, create a multi-tiered laptop machine with a transforming body that remained elegant as it performed all tasks.
