Surface Studio: Aspirational or Delusional?

If you ordered a Surface Studio, check your inbox; Microsoft has started sending out notifications that they will be shipping the devices in the near future.

Specifically, as you can see in the image below, the Microsoft will start shipping the company’s latest Surface device sometime next week. Considering that it is a holiday in the US in that latter part of the week, the devices should go out earlier in the week to those who ordered on the first day of availability.

The early reviews of the Studio have been mostly positive, although it’s hard to ignore that the price is high and the internal specs are not the best on the market. But, if you are buying this device, it’s for the display and pen capabilities which have been well received; the specs that do come with the Studio will be able to handle the majority of the tasks artist throw at it,

This is the first wave of shipments as this device was ordered on the first day of pre-orders. If you were one of the first few to buy the Studio, check your inbox, as you should be getting a shipping notification in the near future.

Thanks for the tip Jim!

    I got the "expect it early" email on Friday. If MS was going to deliver before the Thursday holiday in the US, they would have had to ship yesterday or today and there has been no notification. I'm thinking now that there is a Black Friday tie-in and that the first Studios will be shipped that day for delivery on Monday or Tuesday -- maybe over the weekend if the recipient lives near a distribution hub.

    No matter. I'm reasonably patient.
