  • (upbeat music)

  • - Hey guys, it's Justine.

  • And I am so excited

  • because I actually just got back from Seattle.

  • I went to visit Microsoft.

  • I mean I flew into Seattle, but then we went to Redmond's,

  • since that's where their headquarters is located.

  • And I've been here before

  • but I've never done an actual full tour of Microsoft.

  • So we got to see so many amazing things.

  • I filmed a bunch of content,

  • but I filmed it all in vertical

  • 'cause I was kind of in that TikTok

  • and YouTube shorts mindsets.

  • There's all sorts of things that go into product making

  • that I don't think people really think about.

  • And I kind of have some background in product making

  • and graphic design and those types of things.

  • But this is a whole nother level.

  • I mean, there's different departments

  • for every single thing, for color, for textiles.

  • Like, I didn't ever think that there's a textiles department

  • at Microsoft, but when you think about it

  • there is soft textiles on some of their Surface products.

  • On the covers, on the actual laptops themselves.

  • So small little details have to be put in place

  • to actually make all of these things it.

  • So it's kind of cool to go in and see

  • all of these different departments working together.

  • I just love their attention to detail.

  • Now, the whole reason that we were actually there

  • is because they're releasing some new Surface products.

  • And I am actually a huge Surface fan.

  • And I know all of the Apple fans out there like,

  • "Justine, but we thought you were Team Apple!"

  • Yes I am.

  • But if you're new here

  • and have only seen some of my Apple content,

  • I've been covering pretty much all facets of technology

  • and I'm such a huge fan of Surface.

  • And one of the reasons that I love Apple so much

  • is their attention to detail,

  • and for their incredible design.

  • And I think that's something that Surface has really

  • paid such close attention to,

  • is their attention to detail,

  • their attention to design

  • and just the overall aesthetic of their products is,

  • it's top notch.

  • Like, I absolutely love it, especially the Surface Studio.

  • I've been such a huge fan of this.

  • I actually had a little flashback while I was at Microsoft,

  • thinking of when I first got that Surface Studio.

  • I was unboxing it in my kitchen for some reason.

  • I don't know why, that's why I chose to to unbox it,

  • but I did and that is such an incredible device.

  • But since I started with the studio,

  • they now have the new Studio 2 Plus,

  • and here it is.

  • It looks very similar to the previous models,

  • which is something that Microsoft intentionally did.

  • Because this design already is so great and people love it.

  • And one of the things that they've heard from customers,

  • is there's really not much that they want changed

  • about this design, at least in this current form.

  • I do feel like, there will be a Studio 3,

  • and I think that's where maybe they'll push the envelope

  • a little bit.

  • But the Studio 2, this whole form factor

  • and everything about it, I absolutely love.

  • Now I have started doing more illustration recently,

  • so now I'm really excited kind of coming at this

  • from another perspective to really see what this is like

  • to use for illustration.

  • So here it is.

  • This is the Surface Studio 2 Plus.

  • This has a large 28 inch pixel sense touch screen.

  • And really the key thing with this device,

  • is the fact that you can basically lower it

  • and raise the display with the zero gravity hinge.

  • This does come with Windows 11,

  • and it features an 11th Gen Intel core H35 processor.

  • The Surface Studio 2 Plus has up to 50% faster CPU speeds

  • than Surface Studio 2 and it's five times more powerful

  • than the original studio.

  • It has double the graphics performance

  • than Surface Studio 2,

  • with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 laptop gpu.

  • It's optimized for Windows 11,

  • and it has USBC with Thunderbolt 4.

  • It has enhanced cinematic viewing and sound,

  • with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.

  • And as far as storage,

  • it has a one terabyte solid state drive.

  • Now, in addition to the Surface Studio 2 Plus,

  • they also had the new Surface Laptop 5,

  • and the Surface Pro 9.

  • We also got a chance to get a little sneak peek

  • at some of the Microsoft adaptive accessories.

  • And this is something that I'm so excited about.

  • The things that Microsoft has been doing,

  • even dating back to the adaptive controller for Xbox,

  • has been incredible.

  • And they have this whole adaptive lab,

  • where they actually bring in people,

  • in the community and able to get real time feedback.

  • It was a really cool experience,

  • to really get a chance to see this.

  • This new lab was built with inclusivity in mind.

  • So this is what the adaptive Mouse hub

  • and the buttons look like.

  • So you basically are able to create a mouse

  • that's unique to you.

  • So you can explore all of the different ways

  • that you can customize this.

  • These components all work together.

  • There's the mouse core,

  • a tail extension and a thumb support.

  • So you're able to create a traditional mouse

  • that's light and portable,

  • or you can use just that little tiny one all by itself.

  • It's super easy to pair.

  • You can just connect the mouse core wirelessly,

  • and up to three different devices through a USBC connection.

  • So let's take a look at the new Surface Pro 9's.

  • And obviously since Windows 11 is out,

  • all of these are shipping with Windows 11,

  • which is very exciting.

  • The Surface Pro 9's come with an Intel 12 Gen processors,

  • that are all built on the Intel Evo platform.

  • These come in four colors.

  • There's a platinum, graphite, sapphire and forest.

  • And I am obsessed with this forests color.

  • It's so pretty, I can't even handle it.

  • Something new in the surface Pro 9 lineup is,

  • there's actually a 5G version this time.

  • And the 5G does only come in the platinum.

  • And you can see here that the 5G is a little different,

  • because you can see the 5G antenna bands here,

  • where on the previous version and the wifi only,

  • all of the antenna bands are actually hidden.

  • So you can't actually see them.

  • But of course, 5G does need a little extra help

  • in that department.

  • So that's why you're able to see them here.

  • Now this version of the Surface

  • is like this absolutely,

  • just beautiful blue cover.

  • It's also laser etched with this awesome design.

  • Now this is a partnership with Liberty,

  • they're a London based Global Design House.

  • And since Surface is celebrating their 10 years,

  • they did this awesome collaboration.

  • It has this vibrant blue floral design

  • that's inspired by the Windows 11 Bloom.

  • And it's available in select markets,

  • only at Liberty and Microsoft stores.

  • And while supplies last.

  • I hope those supplies last long enough,

  • for me to get my little fingers on one of these,

  • because it's so beautiful.

  • The pattern is engraved and it matches the keyboard.

  • And it's just so pretty, I can't get over it.

  • I really love the Surface Pro 9 displays.

  • It has 120 hertz refresh rate.

  • It's also got an HD camera, Omnisonic speakers,

  • directional microphones.

  • And their custom G6 chip,

  • that allows you to take inking to the next level

  • with tactile signals.

  • So when you're actually using the surface pen,

  • it'll actually feel like you're writing on paper.

  • And it's such a cool feeling to have that haptic feedback.

  • With the new Microsoft SQ3 processor,

  • it unlocks new AI features that were made possible,

  • through an entirely new neural processing unit.

  • It was really cool to see.
