Microsoft Surface Studio Review: Microsoft’s First Desktop Coming to Europe, Well Worth the Wait [VIDEO]
Hundreds of users who were lucky enough to finally get their hands on Microsoft's first-ever desktop computer, the Microsoft Surface Studio, have mostly high praises for the device. While the device has mainly been built to cater to designers and artist, the all-in-one PC still has a place for a lot of power users and tech enthusiast.
As reported by Droid Report, the Microsoft Studio is now ready to make its way into Europe and other markets worldwide. Microsoft is apparently already planning to roll out the desktop computer in Europe on July, which will start in France. The rest of the European countries will then get their stocks in the months that will follow.
According to MS Power User, Microsoft might be releasing the Windows 10 device in limited quantities at first, but that should be rectified when the company is able to ramp up production. So far, the device has left a good impression with tech fans ever since it was originally unveiled back in October of last year.
The Microsoft Surface Studio offers a multitude of features and some very unique design aspects. Microsoft has also priced the device well within the premium segment, with the base model coming in at a whopping $3,000. However, consumers do get a lot out of their money.
The device is equipped with a 28-inch 4.5K "PixelSense" display with 4500 x 3000 pixels. The large display can be effortlessly pushed down to a 20-degree angle thanks to a unique hinge design. The Surface Studio also comes with a variety of hardware options, such as the previous generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors and a GTX 965M or a GTX 980M GPU.
All of the PC's hardware fits right into a small base that also sports several ports including four USB 3.0 jacks, a mini DisplayPort, an SD card reader, and a headphone jack. The Microsoft Surface Studio also comes with a variety of accessories, including a Surface Pen that sticks to the side of the display and a new Surface Dial that lets users fine tune different application options.
