    @what is the logic? Making a video, speaking some random tech specification and tech architectural pattern does not build a logic. This is what humans are fond of. Whenever they heard a new word or a new phrase from any mouth they start trusting them, without researching it a bit. And that is what we do here and do believe we are learning something new and authentic. Oh oh, Reviews are for acceptability. Each system has its disadvantages and that must be, otherwise, the world will be stalled. If there were no faults man would forget the term innovation.
    So a good review should always tell what is good and what is bad in a system, a review which only brings out the problem with a motive to hide the good ones, that is a busted review and of no help for human beings.
    So, people be smart to stop believing these creepy talks.

    I like the looks of the Surface Studio and having an i7 4 core 8 thread is okay because it seems to me that what you;re buying is the screen and pen more than the cpu and gpu.

    9:00 Wacom is overpriced shit though. And, playing along with your comparison of using a more standard desktop in place of this Microsoft tablet, you can get a low-end Huion screen tablet that connects to your desktop for less than 500 bucks, and it outperforms just about any low or mid-end options Wacom offers, in every department except maybe resolution. My sister has said model, it has 8192 pen pressure levels vs. Wacom never stepping above 4096. It's also a full HD 1080p screen which, while that might not be great in a professional work environment, that's still pretty good, all things considered. I'm actually jealous of her tablet, honestly, I have a wacom tablet I paid 300 bucks for and it didn't even have a screen. She got a screen + twice the pressure sensitivity for only a couple hundred more. All that being said, I have many other complaints regarding the Surface product line in general. I've had a TERRIBLE experience with them. My friend used to have a Surface 3, admittedly it was OLD. But, regardless, this thing and its OS decided it would just... encrypt its entire hard drive contents one day. We were never able to decrypt said drive. So all I can say about that is I sure hope that isn't an issue with the newer Surface tablets, but either way I cannot in good faith recommend a Surface product to ANYONE. Save yourself the money and the torture.

    It's probably because of the limited cooling space. You know, you put in a newest 6 cores i7 and getting threshold half of the time. You got bashed, like Apple did to the Macbook Pro. You put in an less power efficient, old, but still powerful i7 and not getting threshold. You got bashed still. Well, the latter choice is actually rational and help cut cost.

    The issue is thermodynamics. They have chosen well, for that form-factor. The choice for FUTURE MODELS: keep form-factor, but switch from Intel and NVIDIA to ARM CPU and Graphics; or, go with PRO Intel and NVIDIA, but separate the machine from the base... to which they should add ports, and other accessibility features; OR... SEPARATE and SWITCH to ARM processors... LOTS OF ARM PROCESSORS... for the same power and thermal cost as a WEAKER X86 box. It's time for Microsoft to adopt Linux, or BSD, too. Emulate X86 Windows for legacy apps/games... the processing power will be available.

    Honestly, I would absolutely love for Microsoft to manufacture and sell a version of this display for use with other computers but right now, It's not really in their best interest to do so. Wacom has a near complete stranglehold over the touch screen and pen display market, even with their high prices. It seems like Microsoft at the moment is just not looking to compete directly with Wacom to build computers that offer alternatives to their products. I think that the Surface Studio line is more of a proof of concept for them. They may later on make a monitor with all that they have learned from this product, but at the moment, it seems like they are just dabbling in this market.

    TL;DR: Linux offers much more choice, anyone can view the code, and it handles system resources much better than Windows does. It is easier to install than Windows. It has a lot of native software already available, and more is being made every day. WINE allows you to use software not already available for Linux.
    Personally, I suggest installing Linux. More developers and companies are porting their software for it every day, and many are also just building for Linux from the start. Linux, depending on your distribution, is also much easier to install than Windows. It can also be installed alongside Windows, and you can choose which operating system to use at boot.
    If you game, Steam Play (A.K.A. Proton) was just released about a month ago, and it allows you to play Windows/Mac games on Linux. You can view compatibility at protondb. However, a lot of games such as Rocket League already support Linux natively, especially indie games. If you want to use Windows or Mac exclusive software that aren't games, you can use WINE which is what Proton is built off of. Compatibility can be viewed at winehq.
    Linux offers much more choice, anyone can view the code, and it handles system resources much better than Windows does. It revived my old laptop.
    If you're new to Linux, I suggest any Debian derivative, like Ubuntu. You can also use distrowatch as a reference for distributions.

    Microsoft: the birth child of a mediocre programmer who stole his first algorithms and core operating systems; weakened and made what was a stable core into the garbage frustrating operating systems from 3.1, 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, NT, 7, 8, 9 & 10 and so many more all promising glory yet delivering waste, blue screens and data dumps, to fat files to backdoors and bad reach-a-rounds; Microsoft has been a consistent let down of watered down, badly designed "please wait" for the upgrade on their never matured software; infuriating only barely begins to describe the operation of a Microsoft product and does not delve into its beastly over influencing and undermining of its operators;
    In regards to when one buys a product, does that one own that product or does that product own that one who bought it? Because the tech giants may have missed the memo in that by: buying, using, owning any of their devices and products does not grant them ownership over the owner, perhaps simply reduced to the amount of necessity one has for the device and how much vice the product has over its owner?

    My old quad core ultra slim HP 8300 desktops run anything I throw at them perfect & fast. I got one of them used for $79 & the other for $89 from ebay. They worked great right out of the box, but I added more RAM & newer hard drives anyway. Running Windows 7 & Linux. I will never run Windows 10.

  • Kerry Thompson
    Kerry Thompson 21 день назад

    Totally agree. Excellent screen but the old CPU, limited memory and non expandability does not fit the potential of the concept. I use a nearly three year old desktop with 128Gb RAM, twin Xeon (40 cores) and 2 x M6000 24Gb video cards and the touch screen/keyboard hooked to this would be awesome. MS really missed the point with their first generation and have not learned with the second one.

I even believe there youtube videos makeing fun of wrong pronunciations.

  • j.k. 123
    j.k. 123 23 дня назад

    The reason is simple. Microsoft is a software licensing company at first.That's why you don't see best specs on their surface lineup cause they don't want to infuriate hardware companies who use their windows os.That's also the reason that their surface lineup is costly and you don't see much advertisement about surface.The reason surface started was not to make money out of it but so Microsoft could learn and make their software better.Even now they are telling hardware companies who use their os how to do it with the surface.

    Another factor not covered in this video is that - even though it's not a laptop - the model is very lightweight and durable. You can pick it up by the display with just one hand, and even pick it up by the cord, a fact which microsoft engineers bragged about with how they are able to safely swing the devices around by its power cord fairly endlessly. It may not be a laptop, but this is good for artists who want something they can bring with them to classes or when staying at hotels. However I am definitely in the camp of 'just make the display, microsoft' because then I can pair this sizeable yet easily transported display with any laptop or desktop I want. That display will last for a very long time - possibly even upwards of a decade - but the hardware it's attached to is already behind the curve and will be obsolete in a few years.

    What I find far more infuriating is that most modern software is absolute garbage in terms of performance. Seriously. It is utterly, utterly stupifying how slow common software is. Computers today are extremely fast but very few software packages actually make even remote use of the computing power available. Most of the computing power gets lost in dependency hell and complete and utter garbage like Electron that powers apps like Discord. A chat application in 2018 should boot _instantly_. Same for a word processor. Ye olde Word Perfect was far faster in terms of loading time on far, far inferior hardware. Don't even get me started on the memory usage of modern browsers which is nothing short of disgraceful.
