Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio
From S$2,338, available Mar 3 (preorder starts at Microsoft Store)
Microsoft calls Surface Laptop Studio the most powerful business laptop built for Windows 11. It features a new Dynamic Woven Hinge that allows it to move between its three modes seamlessly.
You can use it in laptop mode with its full keyboard and haptic touchpad. In stage mode, its 14.4-inch PixelSense touchscreen display can be pulled to cover the keyboard for gaming or presenting to clients. Finally, in studio mode, you can use it as a canvas for drawing your masterpiece using the Surface Slim Pen 2 (free for a limited time) that is stored neatly underneath the keyboard.
If you are not into custom mechanical keyboards that is the craze right now, you can always opt for off-the-shelf mechanical keyboards like the Logitech G413 TKL SE. It features a black brushed aluminium alloy top case with a tenkeyless layout that takes up less table top space.
Furthermore, it is equipped with tactile mechanical switches to deliver subtle feedback that is ideal for quick presses during gaming. And the keyboard uses PBT keycaps that are known for its durability, so you do not need to change the keycaps or keyboard anytime soon.
