I ordered one along with the new ergonomic keyboard seven minutes after Satya Nadella said goodbye. The Dial turns out to be a freebie for the time being -- as it ought to be, given the prices these units are commanding. Actually, they should have thrown in the keyboard too, but I'm grateful for any kind of discount.
Going into Panos Panay's segment I didn't think the Studio would be a tool that appealed to me, though I expected to appreciate the engineering and imagination that went into its design. My current setup, which features a big monitor hanging off a Surface Book, is almost ideal for general purpose work, and the "creative" in me, if such even exists, just uses the Book by itself when I feel like drawing or composing. But I had completely failed to foresee the focus on creativity tools in the RS2 update, and when Panos got into part two of his presentation my jaw hit the table as I realized this device was WAY more capable than I had expected it to be. So I decided to defer every other item on the wish list for a year or more in order to grab one of these. Delivery in mid-December, they say. It'll be tough to wait.
