    Employer still has me working from home, and my Surface Studio 2 is the daily driver. Browsers, Outlook and Teams have consumed all the screen real estate, to the detriment of OneNote.

    I spent hours this weekend reviving and updating my GB 12 to serve as a dedicated OneNote digital planner at my desk. I can access the planner from my SDuo or SPX when I'm away from the desk. I will spend the month of April seeing if I can replace my physical book-based Bullet Journal.

    If it works, I will be one step closer to less paper (as opposed to paperless).

    I'm thinking of reviving my GB12 too. I miss it's form factor.

    Funny you say that. I had been noticing how close it was to the SPX form factor, and how great it would be with those smaller bezels....

    Sounds like you need more monitors. Its a shame they only gave the Studio 2 one dinky usb-c port, but it should support up to two 4K UHD (@30Hz) or single 4K UHD (@60Hz). Take my word for it, you can never have enough monitors.

    I like the way you think. :D Trouble is those don't get me inking. The Studio 2 is great to pull down and do hours-long ink-based projects on, but its a pain to swivel up and down several times an hour - I've tried.

    , what if you keep the Studio down for your inking needs and add some normal (or touchscreen) monitors above it for Outlook, Teams and the browsers?
    I also like to switch between desktops fast with ctrl + win + left/right arrowkeys if I work on different projects (I might even multitask that way, like switch to desktop 2 to start a compilation or render and switch back to desktop 1 to do other stuff).
