We’re just a week away from Microsoft’s upcoming Surface event, yet a plethora of renders and information have just leaked out, spilling the beans on a new Surface Laptop Studio 2, updates to the Surface Laptop Go 3, and an all-new Surface Go 4.
According to the German website WinFuture (via OnMSFT), this information was gleaned from third-party retailers who have already been provided with official data from Microsoft. It’s a slip-up Microsoft would rather have avoided so close to launch day.
Starting with the Surface Laptop Studio 2, things appear to be pretty similar to the original Surface Laptop Studio, which launched in 2021. The chassis looks more or less the same in the new version, with the addition of a USB-A port and MicroSD slot being the only exceptions.
The leak claims it will have the same 14.4-inch display as its predecessor, which will feature a 3:2 aspect ratio and 120Hz refresh rate. That means the fairly chunky bezels will remain the same as well. It will come with PixelSense tech, meaning you can use a stylus with it.
WinFuture states that the Surface Laptop Studio 2 will have 13th-generation Intel Raptor Lake H processors, specifically options for the Intel Core i7-13700H and the i7-13800H. It will also get an Nvidia RTX 4050 or RTX 4060 graphics card, plus up to 64GB of memory. As for prices, the entry-level models will cost around $2,399, while the top-end version will set you back about $3,949.
The Surface Go range is also set for a number of changes, according to WinFuture’s leaked information. Like the Surface Laptop Studio 2, the Surface Go 3 will look very familiar from the outside. On the inside, though, the entry-level model is expected to feature an Intel Core i5-1235U chip alongside a 256GB SSD and 8GB of memory, most of which are improvements.
The Surface Go 4, meanwhile, will apparently be launched at Microsoft’s special event on September 21. It will come with an Intel N200 processor, WinFuture claims. That’s instead of an AMD or ARM system-on-a-chip of the type that had been rumored beforehand. WinFuture says it was leaked by a Swiss distributor that is giving away a Surface Go 4, prematurely exposing its details to the wider world.
With just a few days until Microsoft’s Surface event, the Redmond company will no doubt be frustrated that information has escaped earlier than expected. Regardless, we’ll have all the details on the new Surface devices — and anything else Microsoft reveals, such as updates to Bing Chat and Copilot — from the show as it happens.

Why Microsoft Surface still doesn’t have a true answer to the MacBook Air
Microsoft today announced new versions of its Surface line of PCs, including the Surface Laptop 5 and Surface Pro 9. The Surface Laptop 5, in particular, hasn’t changed much over the years, but has remained a very thin and light laptop with a sleek build — in many ways, the perfect foil to Apple’s MacBook Air.
The Surface Laptop 5 makes some minor adjustments to the formula, adding a new color option and updated 12th-gen Intel processors. But in 2022, it doesn’t feel like quite enough.
Microsoft’s new audio dock is part speaker, part USB hub
Amidst the buzz of the Surface Laptop 5 and Surface Pro 9 created at today’s Surface launch event, Microsoft launched a few Microsoft Teams-centric accessories as well.
One of the newly released devices is a USB-C-powered hub called the Microsoft Audio Dock, featuring a built-in speaker for meetings and music.
The Surface Laptop 5 ditches AMD for a simpler lineup
Microsoft has announced the Surface Laptop 5 at its annual fall Surface event. There aren’t many changes from the outside, but inside, Microsoft has made a drastic change to the hardware by pulling support for AMD Ryzen processors in this generation.
The Surface Laptop 4 was the first (and only) Surface device to provide an option for Ryzen processors. Notably, it was a highlight of the laptop, providing better multi-core performance and longer battery life than its Intel rival.
