Microsoft demoes the Surface Hub, still exorbitantly priced at $8,999 and $21,999

We’ve seen Microsoft put a lot of effort behind the likes of the Surface Pro 4, the Surface Book and other devices. However, the company hasn’t been so keen on promoting the Surface Hub, but it seems are changing.

In a slew of recently released videos, the software giant highlighted the features and benefits of the Surface Hub. Not certain why you should go out and purchase a Surface Hub? Microsoft is hoping these videos will clear some things up.

One video in particular showcased how well Staffpad, an app for musicians, works on the Surface Hub. To make things even better, Microsoft had students from the Royal Academy of Music to test it out. While they didn’t give any comments, we’re guessing enjoyed what was offered.

In another video, an entire demo of Staffpad was shown. We’re not musicians but from what we could tell, it looked fun to use and we suspect music groups could fall in love with Staffpad running on the Surface Hub if they give it chance.

Microsoft also showed what it is like to use PowerPoint on the Surface Hub. The experience isn’t entirely new, and that’s a good thing. We can see companies taking advantage of this device to use in board meetings and to help with coordinating ideas.

The biggest hurdle with the Suface Hub has always been its price. The 55-inch model costs $8,999 and the 84-inch variant costs $21,999. Clearly, these are for companies and other organizations and not for regular people. Still, if you somehow have the money to throw down on this beast, then why not? It looks great and can be a substitute for a television in many ways.
