For creatives and professionals, the 13.5 million pixel 28″ screen will allow you to work on two Microsoft Word documents at true 1:1 A4 size, allowing you to view documents exactly as they will be printed.

This new all-in-one Surface PC is designed for creative professionals, featuring a beautiful 28″ 13.5 million pixel screen featuring Microsoft’s pixel sense touch screen technology.
