Surface Hub has got various features just like normal business class personal computers such as touchscreens, cameras, sensors and so on. They also come to the market with a business class price tag. There are mainly two models launched by the company.

It also enables four mic arrays that enables Skype as well as video or audio conferencing.
The display comes with three pressure sensitive pens. They are attached with the help of magnet to the side of the device and they are recharged from there too.
