The Surface Studio

Microsoft’s First All-in-One Desktop Has a Better Display Than a 4K TV

October 26, 2016 Tech By

Microsoft is expanding its Surface line of laptops and tablets. The company announced its first-ever all-in-one desktop, the Surface Studio, which is undoubtedly meant to disrupt a market recently dominated by the likes of HP, Apple and Dell.

The Surface Studio, powered by Windows 10, features a 28-inch, 12.5mm thin PixelSense touchscreen display — the thinnest LCD monitor ever. And it’s beautiful. The display uses 13.5 million pixels, which amounts to 192 PPI, or 63 percent more than a 4K TV.

Other specs include a powerful Intel Core processor, 32GB of RAM, a 2TB hard drive and integrated 2.1 speakers. Also, its hinge can be adjusted down to a 20-degree angle — “nearly flat” — so users will have a better experience drawing with a stylus and, come Spring 2017, creating 3D content with the Windows 10 Creators Update.

The Surface Studio will start at $2,999 and is currently available for pre-order. A limited number will ship by this holiday season.
