It's been an AI-heavy year for Microsoft, following the explosive launch of Bing's ChatGPT-powered AI chat. Today, Microsoft has even more AI news to drop alongside its annual refresh of Surface PCs. While the hype may have been low, we were expecting to see some new hardware today. The company demoed the Surface Laptop Studio 2 and Surface Laptop Go 3, with the Studio 2 outpacing Apple's MacBook Pro in a 3D rendering test. While we'd hoped to see the Surface Pro get some love, Microsoft did mention it on stage.
Unfortunately, there was no livestream of the event, but the company says there will be a recording available later today. You can re-live the fun as it happening in our liveblog at the end of this story, or jump straight into the topic you're interested in by clicking into one of our news articles from the event below:
