Microsoft has just unveiled a new All-in-One (AIO) desktop PC in the form of Surface Studio. It’s company’s first desktop PC that comes with the thinnest LCD monitor ever built.
The Surface Studio is alarmingly thin and objectively beautiful, but its most unique trait is that the whole screen tilts down on a four-point hinge to become a tabletop touchscreen PC.
It doesn’t tilt down totally flat, but it sits at about a 20 degree angle, which seems like a natural amount of tilt for drawing, drafting, and swiping things around on the screen. The Microsoft Surface Studio will surely give a great competition to the hugely popular Apple iMacs
Pricing starts at $2,999. Brawnier options go up to $4,199. The Surface Studio is available for preorders starting today and will ship in “limited quantities for the holidays,” according to Microsoft.
This beautiful product has 2.1 surround speakers and a forged aluminum enclosure.
Here are some more specifications:
The Microsoft Surface Studio is now available for pre-orders in the US starting at $2,999 (Rs 2,00,453 approx.) and will start shipping in November. The Surface Dial and the all new Surface Keyboard and Mice on the other hand will retail for $99.99 (Rs 6,683 approx.), $129.99 (Rs 8,688 approx.) and $49.99 (Rs 3,431 approx.) respectively.
