Surface Studio (1st Gen) diagrams



The back of the Surface Studio (1st Gen), which shows a high power USB 3.0 port, 3 USB 3.0 ports, power source, Mini DisplayPort (version 1.2), SD card reader, and audio in/out port.

Note: When you unplug the power cable, unplug it from the wall first. The plug that’s attached to the base has a lock to keep it in place when you move your Surface Studio (1st Gen). If you need to unplug the power cable from the base, slide the plug away from the base to release the lock.
