Surface Studio: The Basics

Microsoft showed off its new Surface Studio all-in-one today. More than just an iMac rip-off, the Surface Studio is focused squarely at artists and creative professionals. Image: Microsoft

The centrepiece of the Surface Studio is a 28-inch high pixel density touch display that you can draw on. The adjustable hinge lets you fold the screen the screen down to a drafting table-like angle, so that you can draw directly on it with a Surface Pen. A separately available Surface Dial gives artists even more control over colour selection and brush tools.

The Surface Studio is available for preorder in the US now and limited quantities will start shipping in November.
