Microsoft today revealed the Surface Studio, an ultra-thin transforming all-in-one aimed at transforming your desk into a fully-fledged workstation studio.

The Surface Studio is incredibly thin and flexible, and sports a forge aluminum body. Apart from its power, the all-in-one's selling point is its unique transforming display, which can mold into a number of different form factors including a traditional PC setup to a slanted artist's canvas or even completely flat like a tablet. The Surface Studio is stationary, however, unlike the Surface Book.

The Surface Studio rocks a high-end 28-inch 4.5K (4500 x 3000) resolution PixelSense display with 192 DPI and 3:2 aspect ratio, featuring 10-point multi-touch and Surface Pen functionality. Microsoft claims this is the "thinnest display ever made," clocking in at just 1.3mm.

 

The Surface Studio comes in multiple configurations, complete with a quad-core Skylake 6-Gen Intel i7 or i5 CPU, 8GB, 16GB of 32GB of DDR4 RAM, discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 900-series graphics including a 2GB GTX 965M or a 4GB GTX 980M, and 1TB or 2TB hybrid drives for storage.
