CES 2017: Dell Canvas

Dell showcased its Precision line of powerful workstations at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. One of the standouts was the Canvas.

The Canvas is a smart workplace accessory that is designed with the same uses in mind as the Microsoft Surface Studio, but rather than being a standalone device, works as an extension of “virtually any” computer running Windows 10.

Working in partnership with Microsoft to develop the Canvas, the device along with the rest of the product line will be compatible with the new features coming with the Windows 10 Creators Update including 3D content (which includes Office and Paint) and a new Hologram interface.

The 27-inch QHD display can be operated through touch, a pen, or through Microsoft’s Totem peripheral and supports partnered third-party software such as the Adobe Suite, Autodesk, Avid, Solidworks and Microsoft.

The Canvas will come out on March 30 and will start at $1799.
