Microsoft Surface Studio AiO now official
Microsoft has just put an end to the rumors concerning a Surface-branded all-in-one desktop PC by unveiling the Surface Studio. According to the Redmond giant, this "is a new class of device that transforms from a workstation into a powerful digital canvas, unlocking a more natural and immersive way to create on the thinnest LCD monitor ever built."
The new AiO starts at $2,999 USD. For this price, it offers a Core i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, and 1 TB storage. The $3,499 USD variant comes with a Core i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, and 1 TB storage. The top-of-the-line hardware setup has a price tag of $4,199 USD and offers 32 GB of memory and a storage space of 2 TB. All variants come with a discrete GPU (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M with 4 GB).
Surface Studio comes next to a new peripheral, dubbed Surface Dial. The Surface Studio AiO can be controlled with pen, touch, and Surface Dial as well. The price of this accessory is $99 USD.
