Microsoft’s Surface Studio is the ultimate Windows All-in-One, the showcase for Windows 10’s biggest innovations—especially some of those coming in the Creators Update. 

We just received our Surface Studio loaner and couldn’t wait to open the box. The very big box. Watch as we unwrap everything and talk about the specs. This highest-end SKU has a mobile Core i7 Skylake CPU, 32GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD with 2TB HDD, and Windows 10 Pro. You can’t miss the 28-inch PixelSense Display with a dazzling 4500x3000 resolution. 

The Surface Pen we know well from using the exact same model with the Surface Pro 4. The keyboard and mouse seem almost like afterthoughts compared to the Surface Studio’s build quality, but we’ll tell you more about them once we’ve used them for a while. 

The Surface Dial is the most unusual part of the Surface Studio. You place the puck-like Dial on the display—its bottom surface sticks surprisingly well, though it’s intended to be used when the display is prone—and press it to summon menu options, and turn it to select options. It’s designed to be more intuitive than mousing around. We plan to spend a lot of time with the Surface Studio, so stay tuned for more coverage on PCWorld.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
