The Surface Laptop Studio is a non-detachable 2-in-1. You can pull its screen forward to switch it into different modes. It's also the most powerful Surface device ever, according to Microsoft. Our executive editor Daniel Rubino runs the device through its paces in his Surface Laptop Studio review
Surface Laptop Studio
The Surface Laptop Studio is Microsoft's most powerful Surface device ever. It is a non-detachable 2-in-1 that can be pulled into different modes.
The Surface Pro lineup has been around for 10 years. The Surface Pro 8 refines the lineup's design with a larger display and thinner bezels. It's also significantly more powerful than the Surface Pro 7. You can read more about the new 2-in-1 in our Surface Pro 8 review.
Surface Pro 8
Microsoft's flagship 2-in-1 now has thinner bezels and a larger display. It's also significantly faster than the Surface Pro 7.
The Surface Go 3 has the same form factor and design as its predecessor but now has better hardware under the hood. Its Intel Core i3 model is 60% faster than the original Surface Go 2.
Surface Go 3
The Surface Go 3 has an option for LTE, or you can grab one with just Wi-Fi connectivity. The Intel Core i3 model is 60% faster than the Surface Go 2.
The Surface Pro X has a model without LTE connectivity that brings its starting price down. There aren't any other changes to the Surface Pro X lineup, but the model with only Wi-Fi connectivity is now available for order.
Surface Pro X
The Surface Pro X didn't get a spec bump or design refresh this month. Instead, it gained an option for a model without LTE connectivity, which lowers its starting price.
