Microsoft has some of the best laptops and tablets on the market, and the devices in Microsoft’s 2022 Surface lineup are no exception. Here are some of the new devices that Microsoft introduced in 2022.

Surface Pro 9

The Surface Pro 9 is Microsoft's newest device model. It comes preloaded with Windows 11, giving you immediate access to Microsoft's best features. It has a tablet design that easily pairs with a portable keyboard for an all-in-one device.

The price starts at $999.99, and it comes in four colors: Platinum, Sapphire, Forest, and Graphite. The device is also lightweight and weighs just 1.94 pounds (or 879 grams). In addition, it has an edge-to-edge 13-inch PixelSense touchscreen.

Surface Laptop 5

Another new option is the Surface Laptop 5, with a starting price of $999.99. It shares many of the same features that come with the Surface Pro 9, like preloaded Windows 11. The Surface Laptop 5 comes in five color options, including Platinum (Alcantara), Metal, Sage, Black, and Sandstone.

Surface Studio 2+

The Surface Studio 2+ released in 2022 and also comes preloaded with Windows 11. It is a unique design that acts as both a monitor display and a 28-inch touchscreen. Its adjustable stand means you can lower and angle the screen to make it easier to draw on or manipulate projects. Overall, it’s a stunning device with a starting price of $4,499.99.

The Surface Studio 2+ doesn’t have the same customization options as Microsoft’s tablets and laptops. However, that doesn’t mean that you get limited specs. It comes with an 11th Gen Intel Core H35 i7 with 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. In addition, it has an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU for smoother performance and graphics.

It’s the perfect combination of productivity and pleasure. Some other features worth noting include:

Although the Surface Studio 2+ isn’t cheap, it’s an impressive addition to Microsoft’s Surface line and is a great option if you’re looking for a top-tier desktop display.

Surface Laptop Go 2

Another laptop in Microsoft’s 2022 Surface lineup is the Surface Laptop Go 2. It has a 12.4-inch touchscreen with an attached keyboard and comes preloaded with Windows 11. In addition, it comes in four color options, including Platinum, Sage, Ice Blue, and Sandstone.

Compared to the other options in the 2022 Surface lineup, the Surface Laptop Go 2 is fairly affordable at $699.99.

Surface Go 3

The Surface Go 3 is a portable two-in-one laptop that converts quickly from a tablet to a laptop. Similar to other products in the 2022 Surface lineup, the Surface Go 3 is also preloaded with Windows 11 to give users the best experience possible.

Best of all, the Surface Go 3 is one of Microsoft’s most affordable devices and has a starting price of just $399.99.

Overall, this device was created for users who need a portable, lightweight device.

Protect Your Surface Device With Upsie

Microsoft’s Surface devices are great, but they are vulnerable to damage. For example, you could drop your Surface Pro 9 while commuting and crack the screen. And, because accidental damage isn’t covered under the manufacturer’s warranty, you’d have to pay for the repair out of pocket.

Instead, pair your laptop with an Upsie warranty within 60 days of purchase. Upsie’s warranties for laptops and tablets cover accidental damage, manufacturing defects, power and battery failure, and more. Plus, Upsie costs up to 70% less than warranties from stores and other competitors.
