Preorders are now live for the Surface Studio 2 in the UK, with prices starting at £3,549. What's more, Microsoft is also throwing in a free pair of Surface Headphones who take the leap early and put in a preorder.
While only preorders are going live today, you won't have to wait long to get your hands on a Surface Studio 2. Release dates for all three configurations are set for February 2.
The Surface Studio 2 was originally unveiled in October alongside the Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, and Surface Headphones. The all-in-one PC is largely the same as its predecessor on the outside, with the exception of an added USB-C port.
On the inside, however, Microsoft has added quite a bit of power to the package. The Surface Studio 2 now comes with Intel's 7th Gen Core i7-7820HQ processor and can be equipped with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics. Those are far from being the latest tech from either Intel or NVIDIA, but they represent major upgrades from the original Surface Studio's 6th Gen Intel processor and GTX 980M graphics.
For £3,549, the base model includes 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. For £4,249, you can step up to 32GB of RAM and added NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics, while £4,749 will net you an upgrade to 2TB of storage.
