Leo's On-Set Computer?

Curious, what is that giant Windows 10 based touchscreen you are using on TWiT? Is it an all-in-one, or something custom?

I think it’s a Lenovo Yoga A940. It’s an all-in-one that can tilt down like a drawing board. Leo used to use a Microsoft Surface Studio.

That big touch screen desktop computer? That’s the Surface Studio.

He gave @ant_pruitt the Surface, I think. He switched to a Lenovo.

Yeah really fond of the Lenovo. The screen isn’t quite as good as the surface studio, but it’s better in every other respect, especially price:

And I’ve had to drop the Surface and use my MSI laptop. More horsepower for editing

It would be great to know what it’s like to do heavy graphics work on that.

Yeah, not a lot a horse power in that Surface Studio. Leo upgradeD SSD and RAM too. I think Surface Studio 2 is more powerful.

As mentioned when Leo first picked up the Surface Studio, it’s really a shame Microsoft doesn’t sell the touch screen as a standalone component. Great piece of hardware saddled by a mediocre SoC computer.

Also wish Leo would use tablet mode on these AIO desktop touch screens. The experience on touch screen devices dramatically improves in tablet mode!
