Microsoft’s Surface Studio proves desktops can still be cool

The most interesting computer released this year isn’t an ultrathin laptop. It’s a desktop made by Microsoft. Seriously. The Surface Studio is Microsoft’s bigger and bolder follow-up to its Surface hybrid laptops. And while it might look at first like a typical all-in-one, it hides a unique ability. Give the screen a bit of a nudge and it starts bending — all the way down to a 20-degree angle, in fact.  Together with the new Surface Dial accessory, it might just be the powerful modern rig creative professionals have been waiting for. But of course, there are a few first-gen stumbling blocks to deal with.

This is one gorgeous computer. And that’s not just my opinion: Many people who walked by my office desk commented on the the Surface Studio’s good looks. Its design is one of elegant simplicity.

But what’s really intriguing about this computer isn’t readily apparent at first glance.

And to hammer down on how game changing this little puck can be, Microsoft has released not one, not even two or three, but five ads that show how, with the right app mixed with the right tool, great things can happen.
