Mr. Panos Panay, the Corporate Vice President of Microsoft’s Devices, recently introduced a refreshing addition to the Surface line. Who knew that the line will expand to include a desktop? Well, I am certainly glad that it did.
The Microsoft Surface Studio PC is meant to turn your working station into a versatile studio. Its inner systems may seem familiar first, but it is going to feel totally different. Its innovative features transform how you work and how you think.
“We totally believe that Surface changes the way you produce, the way you create, the way you learn,” said CVP Panos Panay.
Ushering a new generation is the alleged “world’s thinnest LCD monitor” that was built at 12.5mm. The touchscreen display is within a forged aluminum enclosure and measures about 28 inches across. If you are concerned about the display output due to its relatively thin structure then, you will be relieved to know that it is 63% more than the 4K television. You read that right! The display outputs boasts a whopping 13.5 million pixels.
Accompanying this impressive display output is the expanded color output. Microsoft calls this as “TrueColor.” The upgrade is crucial for videographers, photographers, and designers. If you are among these creative individuals, do add this device on your Christmas wishlist!
Aside from the output, what is the first thing that you notice when you walk in the store? You will most likely focus on the appearances of the devices. To attract your attention with its sleek design, the Surface Studio PC includes a “hinge”. The hinge allows you to adjust to a 20-degree orientation. This is undeniably convenient for people who are marking or drawing at the Word documents. Not to mention, you can easily work on your own bed.
The device’s base has several connectivity options such as SD card, audio, ethernet, Mini DisplayPort, and USB 3.0 ports. This is why there is no need to purchase separate adaptors to suit your needs.
As a writer, I am most intrigued about the device’s ergonomic keyboard. It has a split spacebar and an arched shape to improve your typing form. Due to the nature of my work, I experience strains most of the times. The Studio keyboard’s unique shape is designed to protect your from hand and wrist strains. I can surely order one of this for myself!
Finally, the Studio lets you move effortlessly with its variety of peripherals including the Surface Pen and the Surface Dial. The Surface Pen allows you to scribe what your heart desires. While, the revolutionary Surface Dial triggers functions like adjusting the volume or scrolling through the documents. These peripherals seamlessly dance thru the different perspectives as you work.
The focal point of the Studio is creativity that goes beyond the 3D experience. It builds a bridge between the analog and the digital realms to help you create at an easier and faster rate. If you are keen to purchase one as a present, pre-order now at microsoft.com.
Hurry as it will be available in limited quantities this holiday season! It retails for as low as USD 2,999 or about AUD 3,925. The price of the device depends on your hardware selections.
