Microsoft have unveiled an array of new devices including a new, more powerful Surface Book. But Microsoft have announced a new member of the Surface team, the Surface Studio. The Surface Studio is Microsoft’s first desktop PC. It’s a creative machine built for creative minds. The all-in-one machine has a vibrant 28 inch touchscreen that uses it’s “zero-gravity hinge” to fold back to a 20 degree angle.

Microsoft aims to rival Apples iMac. Looking at the device, I can see them having no problem at all. Not only is it beautiful, but it’s 12.5mm thin touchscreen is able to push 63% more pixels than a 4K display.

Inside, there are specs to rival any machine. You have a choice of a 6th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 1TB of internal storage, 8GB of RAM and a 2GB GPU, or for an extra $500, you can get a more powerful Core i7 CPU and 6GB RAM. If you’re looking for something even better, Microsoft have you sorted with a Core i7 processor, 2TB storage, 32GB of RAM and a 4GB NVIDIA GeForce 980M graphics card.

The Surface studio is available December 15th and can be pre-ordered now. Prices range from $2,999 to $4,199.

There are not many other changes to this build but  video playback and internet sharing seem to have a few bugs in this build.
