Microsoft has announced a new device within its Surface family of products, called the Surface Studio.

The Surface Studio is Microsoft’s entry into the All-in-One market which it has geared towards creators. The device was designed to “pull” the user in with its 28-inch display, which is presented within a 3:2 aspect ratio using Microsoft’s PixelSense Technology.

Other specs include a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 32GB DDR4 Memory, a 2TB Rapid Hybrid Drive, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M GPU. Ports include an audio port, Mini DP port, Ethernet jack, an SD card slot, and four USB 3.0 ports.

        In my mind it has a really great feel. There is something to great tactile feedback on switches and knobs.

      Looks really fucking nice, but I don't need one at all lol. I don't draw and I already have a MacBook Pro on which I develop.

      Still really cool though

      Also when dealing with pricing remember this is going after the Professional crowd that is currently using things like Cintiq's which are $2000+ themselves without a computer.

      That thing seems amazing for creators when paired with the Surface Dial and a pen.

        No kidding I want one, damn that thing is epic! The combo is insane! and mega hot!

        Microsoft is on a roll I really hope Visual Studio 15 will own, then pretty much every that I care about will be top notch. I would bet money the Scorpio is going to be insane! next year as well.

      It's very nice and with all the features, it's not too obscenely priced.

      An iMac with similar (and more dated) options would sell for that much and not include the digitizer, pen, or have the ability to transform into something like a tablet.

      Very cool.

        The inclusion of that nice of a touch screen/pen monitor actually makes this a fucking steal if you were looking into the Wacom Cintiq previously. I guess if you are some sort of anti screen touching person then it feels pricey, but for me it's an excellent deal.

        Seems like a genuine, enthusiastic review. Not for me, but looks incredible for digital artists.

      Its got a knob because when you see Creators(tm) they usually have a computer with a knob.

      It looks like a nice machine but it also looks like it's going after the "computers in the background of a documentary about the film industry" segment.

      I sent that directly to my IT dept for my new cad workstation. I didn't hear any laughing, so it should be good to go, right?

      So can you upgrade the computer part later? Seems stupid to have to throw away that nice monitor if you ever want to upgrade.

        Unlikely. Just like all other all in ones.
