Surface Laptop Studio adapts to you

Surface Laptop Studio transforms from a laptop to an angled stage to a portable canvas, so you can get things done throughout your day. Start by using it like a laptop. When you're ready to collaborate with colleagues, watch a show online or play Xbox games online, pull the screen forward so it's angled in stage mode. When inspiration strikes, pull the screen forward all the way down, so it's the perfect height to use as a portable studio to write, draw, or just doodle with Surface Slim Pen 2 (sold separately). For more info, see Different ways to use Surface Laptop Studio.

And because it runs on Windows 11, you can customize the touchpad gestures. For more info see, Surface touchpad use and settings.
