These are the best places to pre-order the Surface Laptop Studio

The Surface Laptop Studio is easily one of the most exciting Surface devices in recent years. Sporting an all-new form compared to other Surface devices, it’s a blend of the Surface Laptop and Surface Studio, but it’s also a replacement for the Surface Book family. Plus, it’s a lot more powerful too. If there’s a device worth getting a pre-order for, it’s probably the Surface Laptop Studio.

First off, let’s go over what’s changed. The Surface Laptop Studio comes with H35-series Intel Core processors, which means they have a TDP of 35W. Previous Surface Book models had 15W processors, so this is already a major step up. You get more cores that are just as fast or faster, so performance is a lot better. On top of that, there’s NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics on some models, so you not only work but game on it as well.

On top of it being the most powerful Surface laptop yet, it also has a whole new design. The screen has a hinge that allows it to be pulled forward, closer to the user, without being detached. This is inspired by the Surface Studio, which did the same thing but in a desktop device. You can use it in different stances, including laying the display over the keyboard for drawing and jotting down notes.

Aside from being more powerful and usable than something like a Surface Book, this is the first time in years Microsoft has introduced a new form factor for its Surface PCs. That alone makes it exciting in its own right. Plus, this is one of the headlining devices for Windows 11. So if you want to pre-order the Surface Laptop Studio, where can you do it?

Amazon

Amazon is arguably the biggest retailer in the world, so of course, it’s also one of the best places to get your hands on the Surface Laptop Studio. You can buy it below with an Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. More configuration options are available here.

Best Buy

One of the best places to buy any kind of electronics is usually Best Buy.

The model below is the top-tier configuration, but a model with an Intel Core i5 and no dedicated graphics is also available here.

Microsoft

Unsurprisingly, one of the best places to buy a Microsoft Surface is Microsoft’s Store. Usually, this is where most configurations are available, though the most popular ones are also available at other retailers. One of the biggest downsides is that you can’t have pick it up at a store if you buy it there, but it’s a viable option if you want it shipped to your home.
