Microsoft's Surface Laptop Studio 2 is here, and it's not kidding. With a 13th generation Intel processor, RTX 40 graphics card options and a neural processing unit, this machine sets new standards for what a Windows laptop can do. Forget your MacBook, the new windows sheriff is coming.

Autumn - the time of pumpkin lattes, warm sweaters and ... Microsoft's annual autumn event? That's right, dear readers! Just when you thought your tech life was settled, Microsoft enters the game like a caffeinated squirrel and turns everything upside down. This year they launched the Surface Laptop Studio 2, and trust me, this laptop is like the Avengers of technology. Well – kidding aside. It's great for a Windows laptop.

First, let's clear up: this isn't a regular Windows laptop your grandma would have. The Surface Laptop Studio 2 is a real beast. We are talking about Intel's 13th generation i7 H-class processors. What do you say? Are you still on 10th gen? Oh, how adorably old you are. And of course, let's not forget the NVIDIA RTX 4050 or 4060 graphics cards. These beasts are not just for decoration; they're made for speed and games – maybe even artificial intelligence. But if you are more in favor of intensive graphics rendering, you can choose the RTX 2000 Adas. Microsoft showed live how this machine leaves the MacBook Pro M2 Max far behind in Blender. Well, ... we'll see how it goes in practice.

Memory and storage: More is more

If you're the type of person who keeps 237 tabs open and expects the laptop to still perform like a champ, the Surface Laptop Studio 2 is for you. With up to 2 TB of storage and 64 GB of RAM, this machine is a real digital fortress. The screen remains at a generous 14.4 inches with a 120 Hz refresh rate, Dolby IQ and HDR technology. The screen also tilts forward, because of course it does. As for the battery, Microsoft promises up to 18 hours of operation on a single charge. As if that wasn't enough, the Surface Laptop Studio 2 also includes a neural processing unit for artificial intelligence effects. Yes, you read that right – Intel's first NPU in a Windows laptop. For those still attached to the past, there's also a USB-A port, alongside two USB-C ports and a microSD card reader.

Availability and price

Mark October 3rd on your calendar as this beast will be available then and the introductory price will be 1,999 dollars.

So, Surface Laptop Studio 2 it's not just a laptop; is a statement. It's Microsoft saying, "We see your elegant design and lift with raw power." Will this be the MacBook killer we've all been waiting for? Time will tell. But for now, it's safe to say that the laptop game has an exciting new competitor. And we from the apple family.
