Microsoft announced the new Surface Studio desktop computer at their Windows event on October 26.

The new Surface Studio, which Microsoft says they’ve built for creative professionals, has an ultra slim 12.5mm thick PixelSense touch screen that measures 28″ diagonally and boasts 13.5 million pixels.

“The only thing you won’t see specifically is a pixel,” says Microsoft’s Panos Panay.

In terms of hardware, the Surface Studio comes with an Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce graphics, 2 terabytes of memory, three fans, and stereo 2.1 speakers with Dolby sound.

Additionally, Microsoft’s assistant Cortana functions through an inline microphone in the machine, which integrates with Wanderlist and other programs.
