For the first time ever, Microsoft is selling its Surface Studio at its online store for a discounted price in the United Kingdom, with savings of up to £1000 on offer depending on the model you go for. Microsoft has never sold its Surface Studio for a discount before now, which means Microsoft is likely trying to shift the last of its stock to make room for the rumoured Surface Studio 2.
The entry-level Surface Studio is now available for £2,399 (opens in new tab), which is saving you a large sum of £600. If you want to go all out, you can save yourself up to £1,000 (opens in new tab) by going for the top-tier model, which is now on sale for £3,187. Still incredibly expensive, but definitely not as expensive as it used to be.
However, even at these prices you'd be crazy to buy one. The Surface Studio itself is an incredibly beautiful, but incredibly underpowered machine for £2399. The entry-level model only comes with an Intel Core i5 with 8GB RAM and a GTX 965M. These are laptop-class specifications in an all-in-one for a stupid amount of money.
It's not all bad, though. You're mostly paying for that gorgeous 4500 x 3000 resolution display and hinge that allows the Surface Studio to lay down for digital inking. If you're a huge Surface fan and must own a Surface all-in-one, now is the time to grab yourself the Surface Studio.

It would be interesting to see if they launch the Surface Studio 2 in the UK out of the gate and at what price. In regards to the price, it is a stupid amount of money for specs. If I'm going to spend that amount of money on a all in one PC I want to see the PC in person and use it. A physical Microsoft store would really help with that.
There's one opening in London soon so I guess you will get your wish... But surely other retailers in the UK display the Studio?
I don't think it'll be on display in a lot of stores since it's more or less a niche product with a very high price tag...
@paulomalley It was announced awhile ago in September (last year) but there haven't been much movement in terms of news in terms of approximate opening date.
You can see one in person at certain PC World Stores and most John Lewis stores.
My local one didn't have one, they might now do given Microsoft is most likely offloading stock.
