A:AnswerI know you said to pretend money is not an option and you aren't playing games but that is still a hard question. So here is what I would say to you. I have 8 different surface laptops now. I believe they are the best laptops on the market (for Windows). I am a system administrator so I use them for work and personal. But it really depends on what is the most important to you. I have both of the versions you stated. The surface laptop studio is my second favorite laptop of all time (surface laptop 4 is mine fav). But there are draw backs on it depending on what you care about. If you don't care about portability then get the laptop studio but if you do it is almost 5 pounds and the weight is noticeable especially compared to a Pro 8. If you are going to be doing a bunch of typing also go with the laptop studio. It has the best laptop keyboard/track pad that I have ever used in 17 years of working IT. If you want a true 2 in 1 because you really do use your laptop as a tablet a lot, then the Pro 8 is awesome. The studio can act as a tablet but not well. I know there is a lot of people (on youtube) questioning the choice of the 11th Gen processors being in the H series but the truth is they are just being picky and ridiculous. They want to do all these benchmark scores that really dont make a difference even to them. The i7 versions of both laptops provide great power for everyone that uses them. If you are going to play games and edit photos in photoshop then go with the studio for the Nvidia GPU. If you are a light gamer like Halo or really only edit sometimes in Lightroom the Pro 8 i7 is more then enough. If battery is a huge deal for you then go with the Pro 8 as it does better on battery (especially turned down to 60Hz refresh rate or with dynamic refresh turned on). My laptop studio doesn't get more then 8 hours even with settings pointed more to saving power. You can also save yourself some money and buy the 16gb/256gb version of the Pro 8 for $1599 and since the SSD is upgradable you can put a 1tb SSD in it for $140. So you can upgrade it for about 1750 total instead of the $2200 they want to sell that version as. If a lot of this doesn't matter to you and you just need a real nice laptop that is really well made, beautiful, and long lasting for general use, then the i5 version of the laptop studio or Pro 8 will be more then enough and you will save a lot of money.
