Microsoft Surface Studio Review – All Hands on Tech

You have to give Microsoft some credit for trying something new with the Surface Studio – and it largely lands as a cool new device that marketing and art departments will love. But is its price worth it?

For this All Hands on Tech review, we go hands on with the Surface Studio to see if Microsoft has a winner with this new device. The Surface Studio can be powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and a 4 GB NVIDIA GeForce GPU, as well as hold 32 GB of RAM and up to 2 TB of storage. It also contains four USB 3.0 ports, a full-size SD card reader, a mini display port, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Despite all of this power, the Surface Studio is an astonishing 12.5 mm thin, with a 28 inch PixelSense Display touch screen that boasts a 3:2 aspect ratio with 192 ppi. It comes loaded with Cortana, and users can tilt the Surface Studio to essentially create a giant tablet. The tilt doesn’t go all the way down, but it can reach a 20-degree drafting angle.

The Surface Studio starts at $3,999 CAD.

Last time on All Hands on Tech, we continued to expand on our Google Home content with a brief video explaining how you can take advantage of the new hands-free calling feature. Take a look at Making a phone call with Google Home.
