Hook up to external computer?

After your tear down, do you think its possible to bypass the given computer entirely and wire it directly to a more power desktop and just treat it as a touch/pen display for a beefer desktop?

(also I love your site teardown / explanation and images... keep it up!)

I want to know if it is possible as well. If it is, can someone walk me through it?


I have the same question. I own a Surface Studio but it is kind of slow compared to my workstation PC so it would be nice if Ifixit would try to do that.

Interesting question but difficult to answer. First, the Surface Studio is good on its own and second is that it would be a lot of work to bypass the computer portion and connect to another external computer. It would be cheaper and easier to get a touch screen monitor and connect it to your choice of desktop.

I would say the GPU is outdated, and I would love to drive the display (like the 55, and 84 let you) from an external beefier computer. I know common complaint, is a memory intensive program like Maya for example, struggle with the Surface specs...
