  • It's not for everyone... It's for me
  • Certainly not for everyone. Not really for me, but damned if don't really want one.
  • That's should be plainly obvious.
  • Bought one anyway. Rubino is just doing his job, curbing unrealistic enthusiasm. But for some people, price is not an issue. I used to buy laptops that was more expensive than the Studio back in the IBM ThinkPad days. I think the positive feedback to the Surface team is good, and will encourage to keep going. Looking at the device, the base is just too small to fit regular CPU and cooling required. Maybe a wider base unit for SS 2? Regardless, a fantastic version 1.0 device that I didn't hesitate to buy. Can't say the same for the Surface/pro 1 and 2.
  • If the Mac Mini can do it, so could the Surface Studio. To me it feels like the Studio is a device that was actually finalised a year or more ago and only just being released now, everything in it last gen except the screen.
  • Well, if you're a gamer and buy a Surface STUDIO, maybe that's on you. They named it STUDIO for a reason. It's supposed to be a niche product.
  • Hey Zac, what's the name of that wallpaper?
  • that wallpaper is dope
  • I'm on your app every day. Brill app
  • Surface Studio looks like a fantastic PC. Not for everyone, I agree. But, wait a minute, Windows Central, we were just told in the review for the Surface Studio that we'd "...want one, even if you don't need one." Well, which is it? "Microsoft Surface Studio review: you'll want one, even if you don't need one"
  • Which is exactly what the Podcast said as well. Everyone would have one if they could have one. Everyone wants one. Even if not everyone can have one, and not everyone should buy one.
  • It was meant as a joke, but I appreciate your enthusiasm :)
