    If they sold this as just a monitor, I'd probably buy it. Wacom are pretty much unchallenged as the "professional grade" tablets, which is why they are so expensive, if the quite literal definition of a monopoly, Microsoft, stood up, Wacom would probably crap themselves.

      This is because they have switched videos to 18:9 aspect to fit phones with such screen ratios

    LOL! Meanwhile Apple is asking $6000 for a PC that only has an 32GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. That doesn't even include a monitor. For that, you need to chip in another $5000 which is more than the entire Surface Studio 2. You could buy two Surface Studio 2s for the price of one Mac Pro base model, and still have almost $3000 left over.
    I'd agree the Surface Studio 2 needs to be more powerful, and perhaps separate the monitor and the PC part. Having said that, it's not near the ripoff the Mac Pro is.

    • Azeria

      “For that you need to chip in another $5000” no you don’t, you could hook up literally any monitor to it, from a £20 from a recycling centre to a £100,000 video wall.

    for about the same price you can get an imac pro that... doesn't have a touchscreen at all

    • Toxically Masculine
      Toxically Masculine Před 8 dny

      it's actually a really good price if you compare it to a computer with similar specs plus a wacom monitor/tablet of around the same size. it's definitely not as good a tablet in terms of accuracy or pressure sensitivity, but it's a better monitor than anything wacom has, and obviously it's integrated so that's nice. but yeah i'd agree that it's stupid that they don't sell the screen on its own. i don't get the point of desktops like this. why does the actual computer chassis need to be so small? it's on your DESK, and the screen already makes it too large and heavy to be called "portable." so if it's already spending most of its time on a desk, and it's already a hassle to transport it, why bother with the tiny chassis? i think i speak for the majority of media & computing professionals when i say i'd prefer to have a nice touch display like that, paired with a really powerful desktop, whatever the size. unfortunately the selection of standalone touch displays out there just aren't worth buying. there are some chinese ones on amazon at shockingly low prices but i'm naturally very skeptical of the quality, and many of the reviews support that assumption. so i just have to make do with a regular old tablet and a regular old display. there aren't any good touch monitors either (like for your fingers) which i find so bizarre considering almost all laptops past the $400 price point have touchscreens now, with the exception of macbooks. for a long time i've been considering trying to buy a replacement laptop touch display on ebay and put together a wooden chassis for it, but it needs a power supply and drivers and there's not a lot of information available about that stuff. i'm surprised nobody's done that though. just like i'm surprised there are so few reputable desktop touch displays available.

    lol the problem with Microsoft trying to get into the professional market is just that: pros aren't as stupid when it comes to shopping, and DO value utilitarian functionality.
    Only leeway is because there is so little competition/choice in the high end pro market, I imagine Microsoft is hoping, fair enough, to carve out a captive consumer base they can charge extortionate rates to, like Wacom, Red, Adobe, and the like do.

    Microsoft is to worried about how it looks. They just need to make the base bigger so they can stuff more stuff in!! I honestly don't think the professionals who use this would mind that extra space if it meant they got a performance boost.
    And one more thing;
    I know it is a touch screen and the difficulties it can make in the manufacturing process, but if they could fit an 8k screen in there? I bet every artist in the land would be interested in it.
    As an engineer, it MUST be able to run very large 3D software. MUST!

    I would love to just buy the monitor. And I mean think about it - they already poured all that money into R&D and they already have the manufacturing all set up. Why not try and pull success out of what up to now has been something more closely associated with defeat? Since the unveiling of the original Surface Studio people were asking for just the monitor. I don't see how it would hurt Microsoft to provide it as an option.

    would be interesting to see you guys compare the surface lineup to wacom's run of cintiqs or even the newer huion kamvas pro line! as someone looking to build for creative work, it'd be interesting to see how you find the screens to hold up as displays as well as tablets
    also compare the color within the displays as they're meant for people working with that in mind

      PLUS, you can't repair or upgrade basically anything, and on the Al Cantara(sp?) Surface machines, if something breaks/dies, you destroy the keyboard and everything else to attempt to repair/replace (read: you can't anyway, so don't bother), so it's almost even MORE irrepairable/unupgradable! Yikes!

    I'm surprised this so called 'tech influencer' is in his late 40s and still doesn't get not everyone wants/need the maxed out specs and the look of a tacky gaming PC. For example, most of designers only use Photoshop or Illustrator. 16GB RAM and a decent graphic card is more than enough to get any graphic job done. An i5 is more than enough to keep the machine powerful, quiet, cool and energy efficient. We don't need to swap out GPU as soon a new one comes out. We don't need to keep that tacky box on the desk ready to be unscrewed once a week or to be shown off in all his tacky fans and LEDs tackiness. That's the case of the Surface Pro. A design machine will probably serve for 5-7 years as is.

A better mouse a good quality keyboard. Better speakers. I hope Microsoft is listening for feedback. I would love for them to make it upgradeable.
    If Apple would make the 27 inch I-Mac a touchscreen that moves around like the Surface Studio, an Apple Dial, and Pen, with more circulation the I-Mac would be even more awesome. Apple finally upgraded the CPU, GPU, and you still have the ram door to upgrade to 64 GB.

    Nah I wouldn't even recommend it for professional artist. The pen quality sucks and the pressure sensitivity is super low. You can feel the pressure of the pen pushing in the screen and no body likes the feeling of drawing on glass for several hours straight. If you occasionally draw it's fine but I wouldn't recommend it for people who work on art 40 hours a week.

    Best bet is to get a Cintiq and customize a PC.
