Surface Studio 2 Now Available for Pre-Order in the UK

Posted on January 4, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Microsoft, Microsoft Surface with 5 Comments

Microsoft’s Surface Studio 2, first launched in the United States back in early October 2018, is now coming to the United Kingdom. The device is now available for pre-order online from the Microsoft Store UK, as first noticed by Windows Central.

Surface Studio 2 is somewhat of a massive upgrade in terms of performance over the original Surface Studio. It comes with a 35% boost in performance and 50% better graphics, thanks to Intel’s 7th gen i7-7820HQ processor and NVIDIA’s GTX 1070 GPU with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. The device is the fastest Surface ever, according to Microsoft.

The new Surface Studio 2 also comes with an improved display — in fact, it’s now 38% brighter and produces 22% more contrast.

In the UK, the Surface Studio 2 starts at a whopping £3,549 for the base model with the GTX 1060, 16GB RAM and 1TB storage. For £4,249 you can get 32GB of RAM with the GTX 1070. And for £4,749 you can get 2TB of storage, 32GB RAM, and the GTX 1070.

But if you do pre-order the device now, you will get a free pair of Surface Headphones which usually costs £329.99. And that’s a pretty good deal as long as you can get over the £3,549 pricing. Pre-orders ship on February 7.

    For me this is the only Surface that makes sense if not for the price.

    I also got the email for Germany yesterday.

    Edit: And at least it "only" comes with an SSD this time, they seem to have learnt that lesson, but probably one of the reasons for the steep starting price.

    I get this device is all about the screen, but as it's non user-expandable, the base model seems pretty pointless. All-in-all, an eye wateringly expensive device that's probably for rich pro's only, so that excludes 99.999% of everyone else, but would those pro's actually chose this over a Mac?
