Microsoft posts official Surface Hub user guide ahead of Jan. 1 ship date

Microsoft is apparently getting ready to ship their big Surface Hub business and education touchscreen PCs with Windows 10 installed. The company has posted up the official user guide for the Surface Hub, offering information on how to use the huge 55-inch and 84-inch PCs for the schools and companies that purchased them.

The user guide gives owners of the Surface Hub some tutorials on how to interact with the PC, via the touchscreen, a touchpad, a keyboard or via the Cortana digital assistant. It also shows how the Surface Hub's whiteboard feature can be used in business meetings, and also offers tips on how to maintain and take care of the PC.

Microsoft started taking pre-orders for the Surface Hub in July, and is assembling the PCs in a factory located in Wilsonville, Oregon. The 55-inch model is priced at $6,999, while the 84-inch version has a price tag of $19,999. Microsoft has not yet announced how many pre-orders it has received for the Surface Hub, stating only that it has "seen strong demand out of the gate".
