The display part measures 637.35 x 438.90 x 12.5mm, and the base measures 250 x 220 x 32.2mm. The whole machine weighs 9.56kg max, so the lightweight and slim desktop computer can fit on any desk.
Moreover, minimalistic design allows it to blend well with various interior styles, and the durable and lightweight aluminum enclosures deliver an eye-catching combination with glossy and matte finishes for premium and fashionable feeling.
Surface Studio features a 28″ 192ppi PixelSense display with 4500 x 3000 resolution and 3:2 aspect ratio, so it delivers highly detailed images along with 10-bit color depth, and 10-point multi-touch feature provides intuitive control experience.
Furthermore, using its uniquely designed Zero Gravity Hinge, you can easily move the display weightlessly from an upright angle, down into Studio Mode with one hand. Meanwhile, its included Surface Pen gives you 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity and 12 months of battery life in order to offer you a highly free and comfortable digital painting experience.
Surface Studio runs Windows 10 Pro.
