  1. Nice review!
    But I prefer to buy a PC with caring case and separate monitor. Because I have to upgrade it from time to time.

    1. Building PC and upgrading it from time to time is good thing, But if you want to take the advantages of the 28" screen, pen and Dial tool of the Surface Studio you can manage more than 3 years with it.

  2. I don't know if there is smaller screens available or this one is carry-able? I am working at office and sometimes taking my works home for speedy completion. I am waiting for response please.

    1. Hi Abdul,

      The Surface Studio is a 28" large screen, So it will be hard to carry it every time you have a homework. So better for you to have a separated PC or a laptop at home.

      I recommend Microsoft Surface Pro with pen functions to match the pen work in the Surface Studio.
