Microsoft will ship Surface Studio pre-orders starting this week

For the lucky few people who managed to pre-order the Surface Studio before it sold out – since it was built in limited quantities for the first batch – Microsoft has started informing the buyers that their $3000 All-in-One will be shipped to them starting from Monday, the 21st.

The news comes from Thurrott.com, who was tipped by one of their readers about the email being sent to the early buyers; Microsoft also did mention that the pre-orders would start shipping around the holiday season when the device was revealed.

The folks who managed to pre-order Surface Studio will also be getting a Surface Dial bundled with it – the Surface Dial went on sale separately for $99 ten days ago and also managed to run out of stock.

We covered the Surface Studio in detail when it was revealed back in October, but here’s a summary: The Surface Studio is Microsoft’s most ambitious hardware product – at least in the Surface line-up – and is essentially the hardware companion for the Windows 10 Creators Update.

The emphasis for Surface Studio is to give users a more natural way of interacting with the computer – this focus has dictated every element of the design for this All-in-One, from the display size and aspect ratio to the display hinge that can lay flat.

The Surface Dial also helps in bringing a more natural form of interaction with the display – though you don’t need to buy a Surface Studio for that, as the Dial is compatible with all existing Surface devices.

The 2017 availability

Surface Studio will be available for purchase once again, sometime early 2017 – but it’s not clear if the Surface Dial will be bundled with those orders.

The price, of course, remains the same – starting from $2,999, with variations going up to $4,199.
