Luckily for the numerous Microsoft fans out there, the Redmond-based giant recently brought another laptop to the Surface lineup: the Pro X model, and it surely deserves a lot of attention. Although the laptop was initially released last year, it now gets a significant upgrade.
Just like pretty much any other respected gadget released in the recent past, Surface Pro X can be used as both a tablet or laptop. Not everybody likes touchscreens, especially when they have content writing jobs. Therefore, you can connect a physical keyboard to Surface Pro X and you’re all set for using the tablet in the old classical way.
Generous battery life
The battery of the new Surface Pro X lasts for 15 hours, which is more than enough if you’re aiming for using the device for a whole day without any problems. The rest of the specs shouldn’t be overlooked as well:
- Operating System: Windows Home on ARM
- CPU: Microsoft SQ1 or SQ2
- Display: 13 inches (2880 x 1920 for the resolution)
- Two versions of RAM: 8GB and 16GB
- Three versions of SSD storage: 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB
- Cameras: 10MP on the rear, 5MP on the front
- Ports: 2 USB-C Gen 2, 1 Surface Connect port
- Dimensions: 287 x 208 x 7.3 mm
- Weight: 774 grams
Microsoft’s new SQ2 chipset is arguably the best addition to the console, as it promises better performance for select configurations than ever. Surface Pro X is a strong competitor for a tablet better than laptops and desktop computers. Initially, tablets were introduced with the purpose of replacing PC’s, but they pretty much failed in the process. But exceptions always occur, and Surface Pro X seems to be one of them.
The Surface Pro X will arrive in stores on Oct. 13 and it will come in several configurations. The price for the cheapest version starts at $999, and it packs Microsoft’s older SQ1 processor. The 256GB version is the most expensive, as it costs $1,299.
