Microsoft announces Surface Studio
Microsoft has indicated it’s intentions to go after Apple’s Design focused customers, with the launch of a Surface Studio, an incredible looking touch-capable all-in-one Desktop.
The 28″ Display outputs 13.5 million pixels (approx. 63% more than a 4K Display), all contained within “the world’s thinnest” screen, at just 12.5mm. Available in three configurations, featuring the 6th Generation of Intel Processors, and NVIDIA GTX 980M or 965M GPUs. The biggest feature of the Surface Studio though is the 20-degree range of movement due to it’s hinges.
It supports a variety of peripherals, such as the Surface Pen, and an all new Surface Dial, which can be placed on the screen to display context-specific menus, such as volume, colour palettes and more. With built-in Palm rejection, this device is designed around creatives and Microsoft is pushing towards 3D, with a new Windows 10 Creators Update in the pipeline, which includes a big update to the Paint App, to become Paint 3D.
With Microsoft and also Google moving into the Hardware market strongly, it will be interesting to see how Apple responds, we won’t have long to wait though, as Apple have an event scheduled for today (October 27th 18:00 GMT) – check out this link for the Keynote live
