The highly-vaunted Surface Studio desktop computer from Microsoft has turned heads since its launch in the U.S., and Canadian enthusiasts could only look southward with envy. Fortunately, that has changed, as the device has become available in Canada as of April 20, 2017.
So, what is it about the Surface Studio that makes it so unique? Let’s take a look its features and examine what makes this game-changing computer system tick.
Microsoft Surface Studio Arrives in Canada
Designed to align perfectly with the Windows 10 Creators Update, Surface Studio breaks away from the traditional PC approach. It offers a range of features designed squarely to enhance creativity and facilitate design work, with enough power under the hood to get the job done.
The Next Generation of Graphic Display
As we mentioned earlier, the Surface Studio sports a 28-inch “PixelSense” display with a “zero-gravity” hinge that can be positioned like a standard monitor or fold down to be nearly flat, allowing you to use it as a drafting table.
The monitor doubles as a touch screen, offering a gorgeous 4500×3000 resolution that jumps out at you with deep and vibrant colours. It represents a significant leap from competing systems, and the size is big enough to give you the feeling of having a second monitor on hand.
Microsoft offers two quad-core processor options, the i5, and the i7. The higher-end system comes with up to 32GB of RAM and a 2TB internal drive, more than enough capability to drive even the most intensive graphics-fuelled applications.
Powered by a NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics card, Surface Studio, with a minimum of 2GB of video memory, is the desktop computer that promises a rich visual experience.
One of the more striking features of Surface Studio is the optional dial accessory, which aims to replace the mouse and take user interface to the next level. Roughly the size and shape of a hockey puck, you can use it not only for web browsing but to scroll, zoom and even draw.
A Rich Experience
Surface Studio has the power and graphics capability to take your creative talents to new heights, and its ergonomic keyboard and overall functional design make operation a pleasure.
Take advantage of the Surface Pen to create high-quality drawings, harness the 3D enhancements of the Creators Update, and run virtually any application with ease thanks to its raw processing power.
Microsoft has unleashed a transformative computing system with Surface Studio and offers an experience light years ahead of most devices currently on the market.
