As part of its Windows 10 event in New York today, Microsoft has officially introduced its much-rumored all-in-one (AIO) PC. Designed for creators and professionals, the new AIO is called Surface Studio.
Built with a 28-inch PixelSense touch display that also has aspect ratio of 3:2 and 4500 x 3000 resolution, Microsoft claimed that Surface Studio has one of the thinnest display ever built which also features forged aluminum enclosure. Comes with the support for the existing Surface Pen which is included with each purchase, the display is also able to interact with the newly announced optional accessory called Surface Dial.
The Surface Studio is also equipped with a pair of “zero gravity” hinges that allows the display to be positioned to as low as 20-degrees so that users able to work directly on it without sacrificing comfort. As for the computing components of the AIO, they are located on the base of the display which houses up to sixth generation Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M GPU with 4GB GDDR5 VRAM, 32GB system RAM, and 2TB rapid hybrid storage drive.
At the same time, the Surface Studio also features a 5-megapixel front facing camera with support for Windows Hello. Alongside its built-in 2.1 stereo speakers with Dolby Audio Premium enhancements, the AIO also features an integrated transceiver for Xbox wireless controller.
Available for pre-order in United States immediately, the Surface Studio is priced from USD 2,999 (about RM 12,462) onwards. No words on its availability for Malaysia but frankly speaking, we don’t expect it to be released in our market any time soon.
