The Surface Studio comes preloaded with an i5 (or i7) quad core processor and an Nvidia GTX 980M – along with up to 32GB of RAM and either a 1TB or 2TB hard drive.
As put by Microsoft, “Surface Studio is a device created around you and your thoughtfully designed workspace. The minimal and modern design sits perfectly on your well thought out desk, with clean lines and a small footprint.”
Boasting a slick 28-inch ‘Pixelsense’ display, Microsoft are promising to turn your desktop into a full-blown creative studio here – and that’s a pledge that may well ring loudly for Mac users left dissatisfied with Apple’s recent negligence of their needs.
The lower-end i5 model Surface Studio is priced at $4699 while the higher-end i7 variants range from $5499 (1TB) to $6599 (2TB).
Meanwhile: the device’s key accessory, the Surface Dial, comes in at $149.95
The Microsoft Surface Studio is available now through Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi and Microsoft’s own retail stores.
