Samsung SUR40 Microsoft Surface 2.0 Display Finally Shipping This Month
January 17th, 2012
One of the coolest things that Microsoft has done in a long time is the Surface multitouch interactive display. If you are a geek with a trust fund or work for a company that is interested in Surface, Samsung is finally ready to ship is SUR40 display – first shown a year ago at CES 2011.
The display will ship out this month starting at $8,400 (USD). That price is for the screen only, if you need a table stand as well it will set you back $9,049 for both the stand and display. For that much money, you get a 40-inch screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution. That screen is sealed against water and external shock. It also uses one of the biggest pieces of Gorilla Glass in the industry to protect it from scratches.
The display supports 50 points of touch at one time. It can be hooked to all sorts of accessories via USB ports and Wi-Fi connectivity. The processor inside is an Athlon X2 245e running at 2.9GHz. Other hardware includes 320GB of storage and a Radeon HD 6750 video card.
I think it would be awesome to have one of these in my game room.
