Microsoft unveiled the latest addition to its new hardware lineup. Microsoft’s Surface Studio unveiled at a launch event in New York City. Combining an elegant design, a massive and lovely display along with an eye-popping price tag, the company has made the first-ever desktop.
Microsoft claims the all-in-one PC with a 28-inch PixelSense display and 3:2 display ratio, to be the thinnest display ever built.
Microsoft Surface Studio PC is powered by an Intel Core processor and a NVIDIA GPU. The latest desktop from Microsoft is provided with `a unique hinge on the back which makes the computer more flexible for creative pursuits.
The Touch screen computer from Microsoft sports a 2TB hybrid drive which combines HD and SD storage. Other connectivity options include Ethernet, four USB 3.0 ports, Audio, SD and Mini DisplayPort and the new radial input Surface Dial with haptic feedback.
The ports, speakers, and drive are positioned in the base under the display. Surface Studio’s display includes 13.5 million pixels at 192 PPI density which don’t reveal individual pixels in any case. The display outputs 13.5 million pixels, which is 63 percent more than a 4K television. Microsoft Surface Studio PC includes a TrueColor feature which renders the world.
Another True Scale feature in the Surface Studio allows the display to print products at real scale on the screen. Which means, One inch on the screen is one inch in real life.
“We totally believe that Surface changes the way you produce, the way you create, the way you learn, the product I’m going to show you is all of that — but it’s one step further. It’s going to seem familiar, but it’s going to feel different,” said Panos Panay, Microsoft’s devices team lead.
Panay also introduced and demonstrated the Surface Dial onstage and explained about the different products in the lineup. Surface Dial has built-in global controls, which mean they work throughout Windows at the system level. Surface Dial also collaborates with the other products Surface Book, Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 4 for off-screen functions.

With a starting price of $2,999, Microsoft Surface Studio PC is going to ship in limited numbers by this holiday season in the US. As if now, we don’t have any updates for its launch in India.
