Microsoft Surface Studio

   Microsoft has shocked the computer technology world with the release of the Microsoft Surface Studio. It is so large and the design is so daring. The screen of this computer can bend to as much as 20 degrees. It reinvents the way computers are used. The entry price is $3000. What we have here is the top of the line configuration that cost $4200. The main configurations are the following: 2.7GHz Core i7 6820HQ processor that has 32GB of RAM, 128GB SSD and 2TB HDD. The Graphics is a NVIDIA GTX 980M with 4 GB of RAM. This is a pretty looking computer. It looks so simple but yet stunning. Of course when you look at this computer, you will look closely at the 28 inch screen. The screen is connected to a small aluminum base that is incorporated with 2 chrome hinges These 2 chrome hinges accommodates an 80 spring mechanism that makes bending the screen smooth and easy. The resolution of the display screen is 4,500 x 3,000. This has the equivalent of 13 million pixel resolution. This computer has a very thin base but this is where all the studio’s hardware is located. This is a touchscreen computer. There is a surface pen that you can use for several purposes. This is a well-balanced computer.  It is built from aluminum. You can feel the smoothness of the aluminum on the sides and back of the screen. The base is so refined and nice to touch. Don’t be deceived by the looks of this computer, It was built with a lot of strength. Although this computer weighs 21 pounds, it is so easy to move this computer from one place of your home to another.
   The Microsoft Surface Studio has four USB 3.0 ports ( One of these ports has a lot of power packed in to it ). There is a gigabit Ethernet jack, a Mini DisplayPort connection, a full-sized SD card reader and a headphone jack. It has a 5 megapixel camera that is located on the front. You can use it to take pictures of yourself or it can be used to skype someone. This camera is found alongside an IR camera that can be used for faster logins. You can see the volume and power on the right side. The new surface keyboard and mouse have the same gray exquisite color. Microsoft Surface Studio has island style keys that are quite satisfying to use and the mouse can be used in so many surfaces. The Display screen produces vibrant looking images and documents can be read easily. If you are an artist, you will surely love this computer because it is capable of  switching from SRGB to a larger DCI-P3 color gamuts. There is also a surface Dial that you can acquire for $100. Move it around and you can control the volume or zoom. You can use it to choose options. Dangle this object on the screen and provisional options will appear. You can do a lot of things on this screen like sketching and drawing.

    The Microsoft Surface Studio is very powerful because you can use 12 tabs at the same time while doing 4k video playback and ou can do multitasking. The disk speed is considered to be a bit slow. This because of it’s hybrid SSD/mechanical hard drive access to it’s storage. Just like any computer, there is no computer that is perfect. All computers have their downsides. This computer cannot be used for intensive gaming purposes. It’s at par with most notebook graphics but because of the price I hope Microsoft could put some improvements here. A bit of better graphics will make this desktop computer outstanding. This is a computer that is meant for those people who are creative. With that said, the user must find out if this desktop will be worthwhile to buy.
