Microsoft’s Surface Hub is ready for your conference room for $6,999 from July 1

Microsoft’s giant conference room computer, the Surface Hub, is ready for you to own and will be available to businesses from July 1 starting at $6,999.

That starting price will get you the 55″ model but you can upgrade to a massive 84″ version for the low price of $19,999.

The Surface Hub is a giant computer built into a touch-screen display that runs Windows 10 and is optimized for video calls, multitouch collaboration using OneNote and Office as a team.

It features support for multiple pens to be used onscreen at the same time and has dual cameras and microphones onboard.

Microsoft is now competing with Google’s conference room offering, a small box running Chrome but sans-screen, that retails for just $999.
