Apple announced its refreshed iMac 24 this week, and while everyone is focusing on the awkward chin and odd color palette, it's the price that I find the most interesting. There aren't many all-in-one Windows PCs out there, and they certainly don't compete at that price point, processor, and 4.5K display. That's the real story.
A new set of firmware and driver updates are available for the Surface Studio 2, bringing a couple of notable updates. Most interesting is a general improvement for graphics performance, along with security updates and more.
Microsoft this week pushed out a new set of firmware updates for both the Surface Studio 2 and Surface Studio. These latest updates bring new GPU drivers, along with tweaks to improve the pen experience.
Want a Surface Studio but don't have the scratch? Then the Sefree Apollo, a PC set to go up for crowdfunding later this year, may be worth a look. While it uses a lower-powered processor than the Surface Studio 2, it's also half the price and packs a 4K touch display, GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics, and the same form factor.
The Microsoft Surface Studio 2 gets some major changes internally that make all the difference between the poor-performing first generation and this new one. While it's still crazy expensive, it's the best Windows 10 experience you can buy right now.
