I too am waiting to see what happens with a possible studio 3. Must likely have i9, lightning usb. I hope it’s upgradable, a larger base to facilitate access is possible, the current base is unnecessarily small and wouldn’t hurt it’s aesthetics becoming a little bigger. It’s too pricey for pros who can afford it but actually need to stay ahead of competitors and can’t due to hardware limitations. It’s too pricey for creative hobbyists whose dollars can buy much more for much less and be able to upgrade as one saves. I like the monitor as does most who reviewed it, but the biggest complaint I saw was the outdated hardware becoming even more so year after year. Any means of upgradeability is necessary and also makes it affordable at the point of the initial purchase. Right now, $3500 itself is a lot to pay for any computer, especially for a “new” 2016 i7, is the 2020 studio3 going to repeat the self-limiting factors but at $4000?

I was excited to see a new article about the (hopefully) up and coming Microsoft Surface Studio 3..... and then I read the non-article. I would hope your title would read, "With no information released here is our wish list". I expect better things from Tom's Hardware than clickbait. That being said I love my Surface Studio 2 and would love to see the same size screen size with 10 or 12 bit color. Samsung's new QD-OLED is probably too new to make the cut, but a guy can dream. With Thunderbolt 4 adding DMA Protection and USB 4 (which brings the potential of 20V 100W power delivery) upgradability would be greatly increased. These devices are not meant for the general public, so going safe with last years hardware just doesn't make sense.

Lightning is an outdated proprietary connection for Apple. You may have meant Thunderbolt.
