The American manufacturer hopes to steal some customers from Surface Studio's Microsoft Office Thanks to a slightly more affordable cost, for those who already have a professional work station available
It's hard not to be impressed by the technology and design of the Surface Studio home computer that was officially unveiled late last year, just as hard as the price tags given to it, with an initial cost of $ 3,000 that can also quickly grow to $ 4,000 or more - so it's no surprise to see attempts Different provide similar capabilities for creating from home Microsoft Office, But at a little more practical prices.
One of those competing products that appeals to editors and content creators is Dell's new Canvas 27, which is now available for official purchase for $ 1,800, with one small asterisk - it's not really a computer.
While the "Surface Studio is an all-in-one computer with intermediate hardware and a screen adapted for precise work using a touch pen, the Canvas 27 is a large and sloping touch screen designed to serve as a sub-visual work surface for an existing workstation - and thus adapted to a slightly different niche of consumers interested in the capabilities.Surface Studio, but already have a modern and powerful hardware based on it.
The canvas will also provide a 27-inch QHD display with touch support (no specs support the sample depth and color range of the product so far), with enlarged surfaces to lay your hands on while working from the sides of the unit, a removable touch pen and 2,048 click levels - and even a plugin called Totem that looks just like the Surface Dial of Microsoft Office (The prosecution on the way?) That will allow for analog contextual operations within the framework of use.
1,800 dollars are not a negligible amount by any standard in the home market, but they are nevertheless lower than the Wacom parallel graphic workspace and of course cheaper than the complete system that gives Microsoft Office - and it will definitely be interesting to find out if Dell will be able to take on some of the popularity of the field and successfully create a fresh category of products.
