What screen, friends, readers . It is not only its quality in terms of resolution, contrast or vividness of colors: it is that ability to break down, almost “fold” and get to our feet so that suddenly we change from a normal work mode to one in which the stylus takes possession of (almost) the entire workflow.
That is the greatest virtue of Microsoft’s Surface Studio 2 , an impressive All-in-One design and that does not fall short in features either. The only obstacle is the high price that you have to pay for it, but the bet for users in the creative field is fantastic and difficult to resist.
Still we can stay somewhat short in terms of process capacity if we are demanding in this area, because having a 7th generation Intel processor when we are already immersed in the 9th generation – and Ice Lake is coming up – makes clear how frantic The evolution of technology has left this team slightly obsolete from the first moment of appearing on the scene.
The 45 W of TDP Core i7-7820HQ make it clear that we can not aspire to the benefits of the models with higher consumption, but still is a good travel companion.
Even so, it is accompanied by notable components especially in terms of memory (16 GB of series, 32 GB option) and graphics card, with a remarkable GTX 1070 that will perfectly serve us to enjoy video games without problems, although the basic version with a GTX 1060 will not behave badly in that field of entertainment either.
Where there is some stickiness is in the connectivity: the USB-C port is not Thunderbolt 3 , something that would give more expansion options, but we can not use the Surface Studio 2 screen as an external screen of another team if we wish . Yes we can add up to two 4K UHD screens (at 30 Hz) or a 4K UHD (at 60 Hz) through the aforementioned USB-C connector.
The inclusion of keyboard, mouse and especially of the pencil for Surface is a success , especially in this last accessory that is essential to take advantage from the first moment to a team designed for the creative field. Too bad you have to buy the Surface Dial peripheral separately, but still Microsoft’s proposal is remarkable.
