Surface Studio

Microsoft's first all-in-one Windows PC. Introduced in 2016, the Surface Studio features a 28" touchscreen that folds down to become a drawing canvas. With initial models offering NVIDIA graphics, a large number of ports and up to 32GB of RAM and 2TB of hybrid storage, the Studio is a large drawing tablet for graphics development while also serving as a business PC.

The Unique Surface Dial
The Dial is a new, optional peripheral for the Studio that is placed on the screen and rotated to display menu choices. It allows the designer to select from a menu without having to use a mouse or other off-screen input device. Dial provides haptic feedback (vibrations) and also works with Office applications. See Surface versions.
