This is one of the most innovative devices yet. Imagine your standard Surface Pro. But significantly thinner, lighter, and faster. Then you get the Surface Pro X. This is a brand-new device from Microsoft, featuring a similar form factor to the Surface Pro, but with a twist. The Pro X has a new pen, the Surface Slim Pen. It’s a little flatter than the Surface Pen and is rechargeable. The pen even has a devoted space, hidden in the Surface Pro X’s keyboard hinge. It hides there, and charges magnetically when not in use.
Another revolutionary part of this device it what it runs on. The Surface Pro X runs on a CPU called the Microsoft SQ1. This is a custom ARM processor, built in collaboration with Qualcomm. It’s a mobile processor that’s made to bring extreme speeds to mobile devices. Plus, it allows for two USB-C ports on the device that can each process 4k resolutions, AND a constant LTE connection (which comes standard with this device). In addition, the Surface Pro X has a removable and upgradable SSD, just like the Surface Laptop 3. In the end, the Surface Pro X seems to set the new standard for the typical ‘PC.’
