If you’re a fan of Microsoft devices, we’re finally rolling into that time of year when the rumors and product leaks start showing up.  Microsoft is said to be currently working on the Surface Laptop Studio 2, and we’re expected to see it later this year.  According to Windows Central, the device will ship with the latest 13th-generation Intel processors, more RAM options, and the latest NVIDIA 40 series GPUs. The spec bump would coincide with the leaked benchmarks from Geekbench earlier this year.   The form factor is expected to stay the same.

We’re likely to see the device announced alongside other new devices for 2023 in the traditional September-October timeframe. It’s expected that the release could be timed with the Windows 11 23H2 release which should bring a bigger focus on AI.  While pricing and availability haven’t been announced. the Surface Laptop Studio 2 is likely to be available in October/November shortly after its announcement.

While the original Surface Laptop Studio started at $1,599 with the Intel Core i5 and 256GB of storage, Microsoft may be looking to eliminate the entry-level model, which could mean a slightly more expensive entry point.  At this point, there appear to be no plans to announce the 16-model that some have been hoping for.

Would more ram options and a spec bump be enough for you to upgrade?  Let us know in the comments.
