Microsoft announces their Surface Studio All-in-One desktop

Microsoft has announced their new Surface Studio All-in-One desktop, with a 28 inch PixelSense display, a resolution beyond 4K and a GTX 980M GPU. 
This new system includes what Microsoft calls the world's thinnest LED display, with s resolution of 4500x3000, a 3:2 aspect ratio and 10-point multi-touch with the Microsoft Surface Pen. The display is also fully calibrated for sRGB, DCI-P3 and Vivid colour profiles and is mounted on a hinge that allows users to easily use this display as a traditional PC display or as a digital canvas/ drawing board.
Sadly apart from the screen, this machine has some rather disappointing specifications for the price of between $2999 and $4199, with the option of an Intel i5 CPU and a GTX 965M with 32GB of RAM on the low end and an Intel i7, a GTX 980M and 322GB or RAM on the high end. It is worth noting that the GPUs used here are not using Nvidia's latest generation Pascal architecture, which is a real problem for a machine that costs over $2000.   


On the storage side, this Surface Studio All-in-One also does not seem to include an SSD, with the system including "Rapid drive options" of between 1TB and 2TB in size, hinting that this machine is using an SSHD, which is a traditional hard drive that uses SSD caching. 



Alongside the Surface Studio Microsoft also announced the Surface Dial, which is a tool that can be used with the Surface Studio AiO as a control option for scrolling, zooming, rotation and several other shortcuts on the surface Studio. This addon will cost an additional $99, but looks like a great tool for creative users. 

The Surface Studio and Dial are available for Pre-order on Microsoft's website, though the system itself does have some disappointing internal specifications apart from its innovative display.
