Microsoft introduced a new category of Surface devices last September. The Surface Laptop Studio brings all the advantages of the desktop model to a mobile device. The first details regarding the launch of the new Surface Laptop Studio in Europe are now available. Microsoft has been quiet about this issue until now. However, the first signs of the imminent launch of the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio on the European market have been discovered by ALumia, an Italian online magazine. Information about possible Euro prices has also been leaked. Surface Laptop Audio will be released February 22.
Numerous leaks have occurred so far
Many websites have provided placeholder pages for the new device, including Microsoft and electronics retailer Euronics. Although this is common, these newly created products are often well hidden and only internally stored so that they can’t be detected. You can see Microsoft is planning the market introduction on websites in Italy, Great Britain. Five configurations have already been identified.
Base model expected to cost 1730 euros
The starting price for UK is PS1449. This works out to about EUR1730. The cheapest Studio laptop has an Intel Core i5 processor and 16GB RAM. The most expensive model, which costs PS2879, comes with 32 GB RAM and 2 TB storage. Microsoft launched the Surface Laptop Studio in Europe in September 2021, with the latest Intel processors and Nvidia GPU. However, the device is still not officially released. It was clear from the beginning that the Surface Laptop Studio would not be available immediately. Euro prices are not yet mentioned. Interestingly, retailers have seen a sharp drop in price since the US market was introduced. BestBuy, for example, recently offered a $300 discount.
