    Simple question, is it too expensive for you? If it is, what would you have liked to have seen the price set at? (and no, don't say FREE) :P

    It's too expensive for me to buy right now. If it was 2 grand I'd be more willing to entertain the idea. It's a good value for what you get. Just not going to be an impulse buy for anyone at this price.

    It's out of my budgetary range, but so is its primary competition which I would never buy. Based purely on its capabilities, I would say it's priced about right.

    Well, I ordered one within minutes after watching the presentation, so I guess it's not too expensive for me. That may have been a quick decision, but I don't think it can be characterized as an impulse buy. I saw what it could do, and I recognized that it played to what I needed but couldn't bring off easily with my current set up.

    To my mind I wasn't buying a single thing with a fixed and reasonable independent valuation. I was buying an environment in which I could work more quickly and more efficiently with less clutter on my tabletop than is there right now. It feels to me that about half to two-thirds of the money I committed to spending is for the device itself, and the rest buys me the improved work environment and enhanced productivity I anticipate. For that kind of package, three to four K is reasonable.

    It is definitely way too expensive for me. Sure, I'd use it for professional purposes only but I'm just afraid it won't meet my expectations. It looks awesome (from the presentation) but I'm also afraid there will be a lot of bugs (as usual).
    I'll rather wait until someone tries it and posts their feedback here and then I'll decide whether it's worth my money or not.

    In one sense it's a good deal. The monitor itself can justifiably sell for $2000.

    Wacom's 27" Cintiq Touch is $2700 and the pen has two mappable buttons on the side as well as tilt sensitivity. But the screen isn't as good. It's overpriced in my opinion, due to lack of decent competition.

    The computer in the Surface Studio is standard fare, but its design allows it to take up such little space.

    I think the entry level Surface Studio is probably priced about right. The higher end versions are over priced since the real thing that makes this computer stand out is the monitor. Charging an additional $1200 for some better specs seems a bit over the top.

    I think the Surface Studio would be a better value if the monitor could be decoupled from the computer. Even if it's with a special proprietary connector that only lets it connect to MS Surface Studio systems.

    I'd be much more inclined to shell out the money for one if I knew that in a few years I could buy a new Surface Studio computer by utself and plug it into my existing monitor. Even of that computer was a little over priced.

    Got one for fun, will replace my old tower. If you think about how top end PCs used to cost back in 80s, this is not expensive.

    If it's too expensive for you, you don't need it.

    Period.

    This isn't some kind of a widget made to be sold to every person in the planet.

    yes is expensive and and the people who developed it did not think about how expensive it came out to be for a minute.
    and as Mr Gates said on his book "Buisines in the digtal era" The new machine is not the best ever, the one that you have and can take the work out no matter how old, that's the best machine in the world.

    I could totally use it for graphic design and video editing, it's the perfect device for me as a creator, but it's still very expensive. Worth it, but expensive. The problem is that there is no other device that is this perfect though. It's a complete package.

    It's not expensive considering what it offered. If I am a target market for this, I'd definitely bit this.
    Well, firstly, I've to pray it comes to my country first.

    I like the Surface Studio and would happily use one as an everyday desktop. But Its not really focused for the everyday Joe and the price reflects that. Its for professionals who will fully appreciated the design and functionality that the Surface Studio offers. Its not worth it from a consumer standpoint usage for emails and web, with some Office work, but it will definitely be worth it to professionals who are tired of imacs and need more.

    True that it is definitely targeting creative professionals... but man, what a slick system to run even for everyday email and office work. I'd love to work on one! :)

    according to ifixit, it seems that the display can be relatively easy to disconnect from the gravity hinge. I think it might not be out of the realm of possibility for Microsoft to make it possible to trade in your existing system for a newer base but keep the screen.

    yes it is expensive, but so was my surface pro 4 that i bought to replace my ipad pro. i wanted to use the ipad for photoshop....very poor substitute for a windows based device. so the surface studio was delivered today and that is what i am using to write this now. using the keyboard on the screen rather than the keyboard device. my wife thinks i am nuts buying this, but it is my money (she has her own money) so in that regard i will be the one to regret the purchase or not.......

    I think for most people $3,000 is just too much to spend on a piece of tech. Unless it's on a 48 month plan. Is it worth the price even if you have billions in the bank?... definitely not but we paying for exclusivity and cutting edge tech. Which is absolutely fine since its a wonderful piece of technology but for the average joe who just wants something nice. I would recommend waiting. Maybe if it was $2,299 many more would purchase.
