For many creative people, the 27-inch iMac is the current tool of choice. Microsoft is taking dead aim at this key market with the 28-inch Surface Studio PC, a computer that is one part PC, one part graphics tablet, and one part drafting table. Possessing the "World’s Thinnest" PixelSense touchscreen LCD display with 4500 x 3000 resolution, this display has a whopping 63% more pixels than a 4K television. Scheduled to ship in early 2017, the Surface Studio PC is expected to retail beginning at $2,999 US.From release/information:
The iMac with its beautiful 27-inch high-res screen and minimal design has long been a favorite of many creatives -- if not for their studio, then as their home computer. Microsoft's innovative, beautiful new Surface Studio wants to change all that. It wants to kill the iMac.
This computer is one part PC, one part graphics tablet, and one part drafting table. It's not often a product literally gets your pulse racing, but that's what Microsoft has achieved here. And if you don't believe us, just watch this intro video in the 3rd link.
The tagline "Turn your desk into a Studio" perfectly captures what the device is trying to be. Sporting a 4500 x 3000 resolution (63% more pixels than a 4K television) 28-inch, "world’s thinnest" PixelSense touchscreen LCD display, "TrueColor" technology for the most accurate reproduction possible, and even the ability to switch between color spaces on the fly while you're editing so you can see what an sRGB user will see when they view your image, photographers will have lots of reasons to love this computer.
