Four new tablet-laptop hybrids from Microsoft

As Microsoft recently released Windows 11 in the market, it also revealed its "largest update to the Surface portfolio in its history". The new Surface Laptop Studio is said to be the latest flagship laptop from the brand while other members of this lineup had received notable updates.

As a 2-in-1 device, the Laptop Studio acts as a laptop but users can also fold it into a tablet. It has a special hinge that lets them tilt the 14-inch display at an angle that covers the keyboard, which brings the screen closer and makes it easier to write on.

In front, there's a 14.4-inch, 2400 x 1600 resolution touchscreen with 120Hz and Dolby Vision support. The display can be folded into three modes: laptop, stage, and studio. 

Under the hood, this is powered by a quad-core Intel 11th Gen Core i5-11300H and i7-11370H processors, with 16GB or 32GB of  RAM, and up to 2TB of storage. The i5 variant comes with Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics while the i7 variant gets Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti mobile GPU with 4GB video memory. The Surface Laptop Studio also gets 2x USB 4.0 ports with Thunderbolt 4 support.

Moreover, this device supports Microsoft's new Surface Slim Pen 2 with built-in haptics. The slim pen can be tucked away under the base where it attaches magnetically and charges when not in use.

The next product is a tablet which is the Surface Pro 8. This new model has a 13-inch display, which is larger than the 12.3-inch display on Surface Pro 7. This makes the tablet slightly wider and heavier compared to its predecessor. 

The display also supports Dolby Vision and Adaptive Color Technology. Microsoft calls it "the most technically advanced display we’ve ever built", designed to make viewing more comfortable. But the most important part of the Pro 8’s display is the fact it’s now 120Hz.

Inside, the Surface Pro 8 sports an 11th gen Intel quad-core processor with two variants, i5 and i7. Allegedly, there will be other options like Core i3 and LTE. For the base model, it is equipped with either 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage or 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.

Microsoft says the Surface Pro 8 is 40 percent better than the Surface Pro 7 at sustained CPU performance and 74 percent faster on the graphics side. In addition to this, it claims that this tablet can endure 16 hours of use before charging.

The third item that Microsoft launched is the Surface Go 3 which the company touted as their most portable 2-in-1 tablet among the bunch. This device looks identical to the Surface Go 2. 

It sports the same 10.5-inch 1920 x 1280 display, the same set of cameras and speakers, the same ports, and the same dimensions. The difference between the two lies in the processors.

According to the company, the Surface Go 3 can be configured with an Intel Pentium Gold 6500Y or Core i3-10100Y, which came with a Gold 4425Y or a Core m3. Microsoft says the chip upgrade will make the Surface Go 3 60 percent more powerful and faster 60 percent than its predecessor.

The device runs Windows 11 while the camera supports Windows Hello facial recognition. Also, the Surface Go 3 supports the Microsoft Pen Protocol, but the stylus is not included in the package. Microsoft claims that this tablet can last for a whole day of use.

The Surface Pro X now arrives in a Wi-Fi-only version and Microsoft says that it's the cheapest Surface Pro X yet. The company is offering a version of its ARM-based Surface device that does away with cellular connectivity. 

To accompany the new version of the Surface Pro X, Microsoft also announced a few improvements to Windows 11 support of ARM: including an optimized version of Office with support for 64-bit add-ins and full support for both x86 and x64 emulation.
