    Incredible stuff! Microsoft has long supported the tools for creatives and yet done nothing with them, allowing Apple to take mindshare that "oh, if you're an artist you should by a Mac" when even the devices that preceeded Surface were amazing creative tools that put my old MacBook Pro to shame.

    It's great they've realised that those who create are an audience worth taking notice of, and begun building the kinds of devices we've been dreaming of. Surface Studio is the kind of PC I've wanted for 15 years, since I first used a Wacom Intuos tablet in college, and other than the Wacom Cintiq and some third party options from China - there's just been nothing available that really takes the idea into such a creative product.

    As a teacher and a creative, everything Microsoft showed today empowers me to do more and improve the work I do. But even better, it helps me to empower my students - and for them to empower themselves to do more.

    I just hope they manage to do the work required on Windows 10 to really make this pop - I love my Surface Pro 4 but lordy has it been a tougher ride with it and Windows 10 than my Surface Pro 3 and Windows 8.1 was...

    Oh, and I'll need a bank loan to be able to afford a Surface Studio so unfortunately I'll just have to drool from afar for now... ;)

    I wonder what Apple have to offer tomorrow? They're gonna need more than a redesigned MacBook and a TouchID strip above the keyboard to change the conversation...

    As for third parties, hopefully as Surface Pro has done, we'll see similar (and more affordable) products from OEMs in the next few months to bring these tools into the realms of mere mortals.

    Oh, also, power to them for having female representation in the presenters - something a lot of companies don't have. It's a shame that's still so rare that it actually stands out when tech companies have genders (plural) in their speakers team.

      I'm glad they entered this market and have an offering for you and users like you but this just makes an entire year that they haven't had a product for me to get excited about.

      I wish the Studio was just a monitor, that would have been more exciting so I could use it with any PC or my Surface Book.

    So not being a creative professionaly (or amateur) and having no interest in game recording/sharing, what does this Windows update and hardware launch offer me? With that said this looks to be the single greatest event a creative could have hoped for.

    They should have ended their SurfaceStudio demo with "And we will give all alpha members of a free Surface Studio"  as it looks great and I'd love to have one, but,$2,900 to $4,199  for one is not in my current budget :)

    Surface Studio has an audio jack!  :)  LOL

    I hope MS makes a monitor only so you can make a similar looking dual monitor setup.

    If I was designing an All-in-One device, it would be similar to the Dell XPS 18 which is basiclaly a large tablet that detaches from the base. The thing I would change is to make the base a discrete GPU so that when it's docked, you have a high-end graphics workstation, but when you remove it you have a large standalone tablet.

    So, basically, it would be similar to a Surface Book with discrete GPU in the base, but instead of being a laptop, it would be a high-end All-in-One.

      They could have done that at the expense of not making it the world's thinnest monitor and I think they would of had 0 complaints. Don't get me wrong I wish my Surface Book's screen didn't detach but that is because I needed an ultrabook not a tablet (I am not who they were aiming for but they got me anyway). A detachable screen on this would have made it more consistent with the rest of the Surface line.

    Using an HP Elite x3 (not a Lumia 950 - telling) running Windows 10 Mobile, Megan talks about consumer 3D software and states "I *envision* this on other phones".

    Choice use of words there.  Sounds like it's not available on other phones.  In other words, it's just an unsubstantial tech demo.  A fake.

    Recording yourself playing a video game is "creative"....because millennials.

    What's with all the women wearing black or gray nail polish?  Whether it's fake or real, black nails are gross.
