Prices start at $2,999, but for that you’re getting an Intel i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 2GB Nvidia GPU — as well as an interesting new gadget called the Surface Dial…


Microsoft unveiled a load of new products, including a high-spec PC, an updated laptop, a completely reworked operating system, and a couple of smaller gadgets that it hopes will revolutionize the creative industries, bringing 3D to everyone, taking off everyone’s creativity through new categories of devices, designed on purpose for turning the user’s desk into s studio!

The “Surface Studio” (by Microsoft), looks a lot like an iMac, but with even smoother curves and a shiny, polished finish.  Microsoft’s Surface Studio screen (which is touch enabled and capable of showing 1 billion different colors, FYI) can be swung down to rest on the desk at a 20-degree angle using a “zero-gravity” hinge.

It’s aimed at artists, architects, designers and anyone else who creates extensively on the PC — but the price may put off those learning their trade or studying at university. Prices start at $2,999, but for that you’re getting an Intel i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 2GB Nvidia GPU — as well as an interesting new gadget called the Surface Dial.

Η οικογένεια των Surface της Microsoft επεκτείνεται και στο χώρο των desktops με το Surface Studio που η αμερικανική εταιρεία ανακοίνωσ,ε την Τετάρτη 26 Οκτωβρίου, σε εκδήλωση στη Νέα Υόρκη.

Surface Dial


At first glance this new input device looks like something you’ll use a few times only for it to gather dust at the edge of your desk, but once you’ve got the hang of it, it really could speed up your workflow. The device provides haptic feedback and users twist it to select items from an on-screen menu — for example, a color picker or, more simply, for dialing through pages of a lengthy Word document.

Έκανε πρεμιέρα χθες -μαζί με το Surface Studio Desktop PC της Microsoft και έκλεψε τις εντυπώσεις ως κάτι που δεν είχαμε ξαναδεί. Είναι το Surface Dial, ένα διαφορετικό περιφερειακό (σε σχήμα… μπάλας του χόκεϊ), ένα input device που επιτρέπει στους χρήστες να έχουν πρόσβαση σε ένα νέο “ακτινωτό” menu στη συσκευή Surface, ενώ διαθέτει λειτουργίες απτικής ανάδρασης. Επιπρόσθετα, μπορεί να τοποθετηθεί και απευθείας πάνω στην οθόνη για επιπλέον controls.

Surface Book


Microsoft didn’t unveil a brand new Surface book laptop, but it did announce plans to release an upgraded model with a cutting-edge Intel i7 processor and a bigger, 16-hour-lifespan battery. The Surface Book i7 will be available in November for a rather intimidating price of $2,399.

The ultimate laptop just got even more powerful. The latest member of the Surface Book family is built around a new, innovative Performance Base that delivers crisp, vibrant graphics and up to 16 hours of battery life.
