Microsoft's first desktop computer --- ‘Surface Studio’

On Wednesday morning, tech giant Microsoft announced its first-ever desktop computer called Surface Studio.

The cost of base model of the Microsoft Surface Studio desktop computer -- which is a highly specialized system designed chiefly for creativity -- is $2,999, with its top-end model priced at a whopping $4,199. The computer comes wrapped in Surface gray, along with a standard Surface Pen, and an updated Microsoft Sculpt mouse and keyboard.

Going by the indications from Microsoft's Wednesday demonstration of the Surface Studio desktop, the computer appears to be an impressive piece of hardware, and is extremely fast and responsive.

The Surface Studio desktop computer features a gigantic 28-inch, 4500x3000 PixelSense display; and has the stunning capability to pivot from a single-purpose workstation into an incredible system for artistic creation or sharing

--- thanks largely to a pair of hinges which elegantly lifts the computer's massive screen from an almost vertical position to nearly 20 degrees off the horizontal.

The base model of the Surface Studio desktop computer is powered by a 6th-generation (Skylake) Core i5 processor; and it features an Nvidia GeForce GTX 965M 2GB GPU, 8GB of memory, and a 1TB hybrid drive. The top- end model of the computer is powered by a 6th-generation Core i7 processor, and it comes with a GTX980M GPU, 32GB of memory, and 2TB of storage capacity.
