The Microsoft Surface Studio

Microsoft, the tech giants have done it again. In late October 2016, they released the Surface Studio. The Microsoft Surface Studio “turns your desk into a studio”. The Surface Studio is Microsoft’s first desktop computer. It combines elements of the Microsoft Surface tablet line with the features of a traditional computer.

Specifications:

The strikingly large and incredibly thin 28” PixelSense™ Display gives you a huge canvas for all kinds of work. You can use the Surface Studio upright, or draw on it like a drafting table. It lets you visualize ideas as you paint, edit, and design. The touch screen monitor moves on hinges from vertical to nearly horizontal. You can type using the included Bluetooth keyboard or, move the screen to horizontal Studio mode and use it as you would a piece of paper. The screen can also turn to be used as a traditional monitor for those who want to type and use a mouse.surface_studio_techspecs_2_herofullbleed_v3

The Studio is designed to work especially well for those in the creative fields. It comes with a Surface Pen, so you can draw on the screen, take handwritten notes, and sign documents. To log in, you just use Windows Hello which uses the camera to identify you.

Accessories:

Dial:

Microsoft also announced an accessory called Dial. You rest the silver disc on the Studio Surface screen and turn it to choose colors, menu options and more. Dial also works to rotate images on the screen and as a back button to return to an earlier version of a document.

You can use Dial to control volume, to scroll, to zoom and to adjust the brightness of the screen.
