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.

Microsoft is releasing a new Surface laptop, imaginatively called the Surface Laptop. At first blush, it feels very nice. That should be the case given how much Microsoft talked up the build quality of its new take on the traditional clamshell, but that premium feel did carry over in the short time I was able to play with the device at the company’s New York City event on Tuesday. Read on for our first impressions and photos.
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.
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 blew our minds last year when it announced the Surface Book — and its crazy detachable display. This year, the company's refreshing the product, and claims it has stuffed two times as much processing power and 30 per cent more battery life in the exact same design.
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.
Late tonight, Microsoft will take the wraps off what is widely expected to be new Surface gadgets, including Surface tablets and an all-in-one PC. Interested? Here's how to tune in.
Microsoft's fall press event in New York City is almost upon us, and that means there are plenty of rumoured Windows 10 hardware and software updates to be excited about. The company announced the event in a blog post on the Windows Experience site earlier this month, with very few details aside from the place, date, and time.
When you're buying your lunch today, you might want to take a moment and spend a little more. Gizmodo's Lunch Time Deals posts point out any particularly good bargains for Aussie bargain hunters around the 'net. Today, Microsoft has a flat 10 per cent off every variant of its Surface Pro 4 tablet.
When you’re buying your lunch today, you might want to take a moment and spend a little more. Gizmodo’s Lunch Time Deals posts point out any particularly good bargains for Aussie bargain hunters around the ‘net. Today, JB Hi-Fi has $100 off Microsoft's Surface 3 tablet, with the cheapest 64GB model down to $598.
Microsoft's $2299 Surface Book, which launched in Australia at the same time as its flagship Sydney store, is a thin and light tablet with a keyboard dock that contains extra battery power. Uniquely, though, the Surface Book's lower half also contains a Nvidia GeForce graphics card, fueling some small hope that it might be adequate for a bit of weekend gaming.
After some mucking around with different Nvidia drivers and a bunch of testing over the weekend, I can say that adequate is the word — the Surface Book certainly isn't a gaming powerhouse, but with a bit of software hacking, it's not terrible, and enough to enjoy a modern video game or two.
Microsoft’s Surface division is under siege. In the four years after the Redmond giant got the idea of making the world’s best convertible, it has had the field almost entirely to itself. Now, heading into 2016, the Surface is surrounded by its competition, fighting for dominance at every price point. Is the Surface Pro 4 a big enough stick to beat back the opposition?
