The fact Microsoft got so many things right with the Surface Studio 2 makes the things they got wrong that much worse.

It's kinda sad that a screen for drawing like that would be considered a *good* price at $2000. I've been using Wacoms but when Huion gets its hands on the etched glass screen design I'm gonna switch it out!
With that being said, a review of these kinds of products from your artists would be really niiiiiice~
Jeez Linus, You are on point with exactly what I said about it. I wish I could just have the monitor and have the freedom to build up the tower. My computer is 8 years old, but I've had the ability to swap out parts and add new ones. I'm not about to surrender that ability for the Studio 2.
why would microsoft have something that is ONLY ON APPLE allso why would you go for more than 60 voliume allso touch screen costs money and its fine for most AND FINALY its for artists so who cares, theres probably external parts that inprove youre computer and finaly dollars means nothing to me because im in the uk
i mean i now know you mentioned the touch screen thing but...
Checking at the almost halfway mark of 2019 for the Surface Studio 2, All I can say is that the graphic options can decided between a 1060 and 1070, you can get 1-2 TB of storage and a 16-32 GB processor, sounds good, but it still has that 7th gen i7
idunno if microsoft has some sort of non-compete clause with wacom but honestly they can easily just compete them out of existence if they just stop doing this silly shit.
Like come on. Make a 24 inch surface monitor, price it at under 2k, I guarantee it'll be disruptive.
My company owns this and as a graphic designer it just frign rocks. I think Linus is more of an old school desktop PC master race guy, and that's a fine preference but he's a bit out of touch here, he's just hating for not that many reasons really. sure it could be better, like anything but this machine is pretty darn good all around, would definently recommend.
I love the screen, dial and pen, but they could have put a new processor, GPU, at least 2 TB SSD, up to 64 ram, and the ports in the front as you mentioned. A better mouse a good quality keyboard. Better speakers. I hope Microsoft is listening for feedback. I would love for them to make it upgradeable.
If Apple would make the 27 inch I-Mac a touchscreen that moves around like the Surface Studio, an Apple Dial, and Pen, with more circulation the I-Mac would be even more awesome. Apple finally upgraded the CPU, GPU, and you still have the ram door to upgrade to 64 GB.
Nah I wouldn't even recommend it for professional artist. The pen quality sucks and the pressure sensitivity is super low. You can feel the pressure of the pen pushing in the screen and no body likes the feeling of drawing on glass for several hours straight. If you occasionally draw it's fine but I wouldn't recommend it for people who work on art 40 hours a week.
Best bet is to get a Cintiq and customize a PC.
They should make the screen ONLY and allow for use with any other computer. I'd buy 3 of those screens (2 non-touch and 1 touch) and pay a goooooood price for them. I love the design but I don't want the computer that's behind all that
I have no interest in the amazing Microsoft surface produicts (as I'm not an artist/architect) or any Apple product whatsoever (icky) but this is one of your finest videos Linus. Beuatifuly shot. edited and produced. I have rewatched it like 4 times. Amazing work team.
no... fucking.... way.... my i7 4790 that I got for $150 is better than this???? LMAOOOO
(Shout out to my uncle cause I got it that cheap perfectly brand new because he worked at Intel in Portland Oregon)
It really aggravates me that Linus is using a Wacom tablet that is designed for drawing and digital design as a comparison to a full computer just for the sake of the touchscreen. There is much more to the $2,500 price tag than the touch screen itself. You are getting all the hardware that is packed into the device, plus the pen, and also the Wacom drivers, which have been tuned much further and had much more effort and R&D money invested in them than Microsoft. Linus really should just stay away from the drawing and digital art scene in future videos unless he gets a professional graphic artist to review his scripts beforehand.
There are now optional graphics tablets and all in ones much cheaper than the Wacom. Huion and XP Pen are just as good, if not better for digital art and support more platforms.

good review u know what u talking about. i would buy this pen display even for +3000€ but i got a much better pc here. my professional 32gb ram cost 250€ not 800€ like microsoft charge for more ram.. omg i am so fucked. wacom let me down twice, now my new huion display got serious quality problem i need something else what should i do i need this for my work every day?
What do you mean my 17GB and GROWING system32 folder is fine. The 1 DIR is larger than the Windows install ! And some people have 20, 30 50GB system32 directories and NO WAY to do anything about it ! Yeah, MS sucks bad !
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
