Surface Laptop Studio - Unboxing & Hands-On!

Surface Laptop Studio - Unboxing & Hands-On!
hey everyone zack here from windows central and welcome back to another video now today we have a special treats we have an

unboxing

and sort of first look at the new

surface

devices we have the

surface

laptop

studio

here today and we are going to give it an unbox so as you can see already started the job here i am recording this voiceover after the fact because uh i was lazy and didn't do it live but here we are

unboxing

the device nice wrapping there it says windows 11 on the front so let's waste no more time let's take the lid off here and uh see the device for the first time could you imagine if it wasn't in the box that would be shocking nope here it is it is in the box luckily for us this is like the best part of any products ever getting it out of the box for the first time very exciting stuff let's just sort of take a moment to appreciate it in its pristine condition before we unwrap it and start putting up gross fingers all over it let's take a look at what's in the box we have our good documentation as always not much here just a piece of paper that says

surface

laptop

studio

as well as our warranty information and a blank sort of card bit here with a nice little logo on it that's nice as always always a piece of paper that you're just gonna throw away oh actually no look there's some stuff in it i did forget about this bit there's actually a little bit of documentation that shows you how to use the three different...

postures uh which is kind of nice uh we also have our charging brick here this is a 102 watt power brick uh this is not the 127 watts power brick that the

surface

book 3 came with but it's still more powerful than say the

surface

pros which comes with i think a 65 watt power brick anyway let's tidy this up here and get to the main event this is the

surface

laptop

studio

of course let's uh take the wrapping off here there's always a fun part of any

unboxing

uh it works well the the wrapping it does its job uh but taking it off is always very satisfying and there we are that is the

surface

laptop

studio

unwrapped fully exposed to the world and its elements so yeah let's lift it up and as you can see we have a piece of recyclable paper which is sort of protecting the screen and the keyboard which is kind of nice and there we are so let's uh sort of take a look at the device itself we have two thunderbolt 4 usb c ports on the left here as well as you can also see the sort of stage design that this

laptop

has very unique design but i think it looks really nice we also have the back of the device here no ports there but i figured i'd show it to you because why not and then on the right side we here we have the

surface

connect ports as well as a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack um and that's basically all there is to it on this device you can remove the base i don't know how but you can do it and replace the ssd so microsoft doesn't advise you do...
surface laptop studio   unboxing hands on
that they that's really more for trained technicians and whatnot but it is possible on this device however i feel like most people probably won't do that so here's the

surface

slim pen too uh it doesn't come with the device but it is an optional accessory and it does connect to the bottom of the device here and does wirelessly charge it as well the magnets are very strong so this isn't gonna go anywhere in your bag and stuff and even using it day to day i've been using it for a few days now it doesn't fall off uh here we are moving between the different modes this is stage mode here and then of course we have

studio

mode which lays the display down and that's great for if you're an artist or something and you want to do some drawing laying the device down in this sort of draft board mode is really nice and you can open up say your favorite drawing app of choice i use microsoft paints because i am the most professional artist on the planet uh fun fact i can't draw at all so this is gonna be fun um but yeah this works really well now the

surface

limp pen too we'll briefly talk about it does support haptics that's only compatible with the

surface

laptop

studio

and the

surface

pro 8. however um paint doesn't support the haptics that's supported in a number of apps not all of them will support haptics at least right now but apps like at photoshop and uh the microsoft whiteboard app works as expected with the haptics uh...
surface laptop studio   unboxing hands on
here's what it looks like from behind when you're in stage mode it looks kind of like a massive

surface

pro in case you were wondering i think it looks really nice and the magnets themselves are actually really strong uh when moving between stage and sort of i guess

laptop

mode there's very satisfying click to them and stuff i'll show you that now so like i said the magnetics there are super strong and feel really satisfying to use there's also magnets that guide it into this stage mode so the screen doesn't sort of move around as you're using it and then of course there are also magnets when you lay it flat as well to keep things in place which is super fun uh the actual hinge the middle hinge on the screen that allows it to move into stage mode isn't friction it's not a friction hinge so it's loose uh so it moves around stuff which is why the magnets are going to sort of guide it into that stage mode but i figured that was quite interesting in the marketing material it sort of looks like a standard

surface

pro hinge but it's not it's a i guess a floppy hinge if you'd if you'd like to describe it as so typing on this device is amazing this might be the best keyboard

surface

has ever done i'll show you a sort of typing test in a second with sound so you can hear what it sounds like it's so satisfying it really is the keyboard really is amazing i think it might be the best part of this device uh here's another...
look at the sort of weird staged design as i like to call it i think it looks really nice in person it doesn't look as weird as it does in the photos i know if you're looking at a render or a picture of it online it looks kind of odd but in reality it looks absolutely fine i think uh i have no complaints in fact i think it makes it look unique which is kind of the whole point of

surface

another interesting detail uh the display has rounded corners which does cut off some content so if you have something in the very corner of the device it will cut it off ever so slightly but i thought that was an interesting design choice they're very round very round two round even now lastly i did want to quickly walk through the different haptic touchpad options on

surface

laptop

studio

for those who don't know the

laptop

studio

has a haptic touchpad which means the actual touchpad itself doesn't move instead vibrations happen underneath it when you click down there are four levels 100 75 50 and 25 and they do sort of have a different audible click to them so i'll just play them to you now lastly i did want to mention that the the hinge under the display is actually covered in this sort of weird fabric which i thought was a surprise you would expect it to be metal but no it's actually covered in fabric which is pretty cool so there you have it guys that's a quick look at the

surface

laptop

studio

unboxing

and first impressions this is a really nice

laptop

it...
certainly is a successor to the

surface

book i'm enjoying my time with it we have a full review on windows central written by daniel rubino that i definitely suggest you check out if you're interested in this device we go into benchmarks and all kinds of interesting things so make sure you give that a read but yeah thank you so much for watching and we shall see you in the next one
