Yes, this is a $4,000 all-in-one PC, but there are still accessories you can buy to make it better.
The Surface Studio 2 Plus is one of the coolest Microsoft Surface PCs you can buy in 2022. It might have an exuberant $4,000 price tag, but it’s a unique all-in-one (AiO) system with a massive 28-inch pull-down hinged screen, and a base that houses the internal components. Even if you splurged on the Surface Studio 2 Plus, there are still plenty of accessories you can use to make your experience better, from keyboards to mice, and even more monitors.
Keyboards for the Surface Studio 2 Plus
