Microsoft has announced the Surface Laptop Studio, which according to the company is the most powerful Surface it has ever built. It brings a brand new design that eliminates the removable display in favour of one that brings the screen to the front to transform the laptop into a studio mode (tablet). This is made possible through a new ultra-durable Dynamic Woven Hinge that allows the transition from one mode to another seamlessly. The laptop supports three modes: laptop, stage, and studio. In the stage mode, the display is pulled forward for gaming, streaming, docking, or presentations. The studio mode allows for uninterrupted sketching, uninterrupted writing, and other tasks.
