So, you have heard about the Surface Book from my previous write-up. It is a solid laptop, with features superior to competition. But what if I wanted a larger one? Something for my engineering firm, I want to do an Auto CAD design or in my fashion studio I want to design a new dress or design anything new? Not only design but high performance for video editing, game designing, graphic designing and all? Presenting the Surface Studio. Tailored for professions that require the highest capability all in one PC directly from Microsoft.
Well Microsoft has done it again with the Surface Studio. The name Surface is synonym with Microsoft’s product with many products in its catalogue. The largest one is the Surface Studio, which we are talking about.
So, the basic design is that it’s got a big screen, with just one wire connected to a box. It looks nice, with sleek and slender profile and has given justice to the name studio with sharp looks and nice design. The uncluttered profile is too good to look at and the mode changing from desktop to studio mode is too damn awesome. The display is large, measuring about 28 inch with 4.5K PixelSense display with 4500×3000 pixels, measuring about 192 dpi. The all in one PC is 12.5 mm thick or thin? It comes with a unique hinge design that allows it to change its position into flat. It also comes with a 5 MP camera and infrared camera as well. It comes best with Surface Dial, Surface Pen, Surface Mouse and Surface Keyboard. We might have been known with the pen, mouse and keyboard but the Dial is something new. The Surface Dial is a knob that can adjust parameters, such as screen brightness, audio volume, or scroll position, on the Studio.
The CPU is located in the base, a beautifully crafted box. It has a compact design with powerful 6th generation “Skylake” Intel Core i5 or i7 processor and either NVidia GeForce GTX 965M or GeForce GTX 980M graphics processor which are dependent on the configuration. The system can be maxed up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM and 2 TB of hard drive. It comes with 4 USB 3.0 port, a mini DisplayPort, a SDXC card reader and a headset connection.
Something of a personal touch, despite being priced from $2999 to $4199, I think addition of a more recent version of NVidia graphics card like the GTX 1060, 1070 or 1080 would be better. For that price, I would want the latest iteration of graphics card but what I get is also satisfactory.
Here is the introductory video from Microsoft for the Surface Studio.
