The year is winding down, and it’s very unlikely Microsoft will announce another major product, so naturally, we need to look forward to 2019 and beyond. Brad Sams of Thurrot has plenty of delectable rumours in his new book Beneath a Surface. Some his claims about Microsoft’s product roadmap reinforce things we’ve heard before, while other bits are entirely new.

Come with me, and you'll be in a world of pure imagination.
I'm not joking when I say the Microsoft Surface Studio makes this sentence -- pulled from the incredible video that Microsoft wrote to promote its new super-luxury, all-in-one PC, in the words of Willy Wonka's fantasies -- come true. When you get face to face with the Surface Studio, and when you see what it can do, you can't help but think of all the possibilities of what you can do with it. It's incredible.
It was only a matter of time before we saw our first clone of Microsoft's Surface Studio. The uber-expensive new desktop computer is part iMac, part Wacom Cintiq display and all kinds of cool looking. But when Dell showed Gizmodo the new Dell Canvas 27, a 27-inch touch-enabled display meant for artists and other creative types, the rep bristled at the clone label.
Stephanie Tarling is an actress and musician born in England and living in LA, working on an EP set to release in 2017. She's also the breathy voice behind the hauntingly beautiful cover of Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley's Pure Imagination, the song sung by Gene Wilder in 1971's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, that Microsoft used to introduce the world to the Surface Studio.
This morning, Microsoft introduced the world to something it has been working on for a long time. It started with the original Surface -- now called the PixelSense -- back in 2008. Then the original Surface tablet. Then the Surface Book. Now, the Surface Studio. This, the most mature and refined (and expensive) Microsoft device that you've ever been able to buy, is the tipping point. In a year, Microsoft will be the creative darling that Apple was five years ago.
Microsoft's answer to the traditional desktop computer is coming. And it's expensive.
The first thing you notice about Microsoft's new Surface Studio is the screen. The 71cm 3:2 display is gigantic and beautiful. It's so bright, vivid, and engaging that I feel like I could dive in and go swimming in it.
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.
Microsoft just wrapped up its October event, and as we expected, it wasn't wall-to-wall hardware announcements like last year. Nothing from Lumia land. Radio silence on the Band front.
Microsoft just announced a brand new all-in-one PC called the Surface Studio. This isn't some under-powered plasticky do-your-kids'-homework desktop PC, though: it's a 28-inch Core i7-powered behemoth with a ridiculously high-resolution screen and a massive amount of computing and graphics power. It's meant for hardcore creative types, but that doesn't mean we can't lust over it as well.
Desktop computers have come in two flavours for the last few years: boxes you plug into your monitor or TV, and all-in-one devices like Apple's popular iMac series. Microsoft's newly announced Surface Studio is the latter kind of desktop, but with a giant touchscreen and pen input too. It's also the first desktop computer Microsoft has ever made.
