Microsoft announces Surface Studio AIO

Forum post written by MJVR1:

Microsoft has released a new product for the surface line, the Surface Studio. let’s get the main specifications out of the way first.

• 28″ Pixel Sense Display 4500×3000 (13.5 million pixels) with 10-Point Multi-Touch
• Core i5/i7
• GTX 965M or 980M
• 8GB/16GB/32GB
• Rapid Hyper Drive 1TB or 2TB
• 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and Xbox Wireless (For Xbox One Controllers)
• Full Aluminum Construction
• IO includes: 4 USB 3.0 ports, 1 Gigabit ethernet, SD card slot, 1 mini display port, and a cowardly 3.5mm headphone jack.


Preorders starts at $3000 for the base i5/GTX 965M model.

This product is meant for artist of all sorts and hass some nice features for them. The hinge looks really nice and is quite flexible. From the demos, it seems it can hold an arm for when you using it as a canvas.

What I’m really interested in is the Surface Dial. It’s basically a knob you place on the screen and it brings up menus in supported apps. For example, it can bring up a color pallete in drawing app for easy choosing of colors. It can be used to zoom in and out as well.

So why am I posting this here? Well the managed to fit in quite a bit of hardware into an AIO. They fit all of the hardware into the base of the system. Not only that, they added support for the surface pen (which I love) as well as for new accessories that I am interested in. Leave your thoughts in the forum!
