In terms of ports: There are three USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB-A 3.1 ports, a headphone jack, and an Ethernet port. Gone is the SDXC slot.

One of the coolest things about the Studio 2+ is the screen that angles down.

If you’ve got a Surface Dial, the Studio 2+ works with it, too.

Price and release date

The Surface Studio 2+ is not cheap: $4,299 without a keyboard and mouse or $4,499 with a keyboard, mouse, Surface Pen, and Surface Dial.
