Microsoft launched its all-in-one Surface Studio a little while ago, but left users a little sour after soldiering the RAM onto the board, but they did leave the HDD and SSD available to upgrades - something that Father Robert Ballecer did, with some great results.



In the video, the 64GB M.2 SSD was upgraded to a new Samsung EVO 850 series 250GB drive - providing a huge 400% increase in performance - while the smaller mechanical HDD was upgraded to a much bigger model. It's too bad that Microsoft don't allow for the RAM upgrades, because 8GB of RAM in a machine like that just isn't enough these days - especially considering the cost of the Surface Studio.
