A:AnswerThese are two very different machines... almost an apple and an orange. The Pro 7 uses Windows 10 and accommodates all Windows programs natively. So far, there is not a model of the Pro 7 that includes LTE.
The Pro X is Microsoft's foray into a new "form factor" for mobile computing. It does not use the standard Intel / AMD chip architecture but instead uses a customized version of an ARM chip; ARM chips would typically be used in cell phones and some Android tablets. It offers longer battery life and LTE connectivity... but it is not compatible with certain Windows programs / apps because it runs them by emulation. Lots of games won't run, for example. That being said... if you want Office apps and browsing, this could be a perfect choice for you.
A:AnswerThere's a MicroSD slot on the Surface Pro 7. It's underneath the kickstand so it's protected. No need to open anything to add a chip. It clicks right in. I added a 512 Gigabyte chip in that slot, and it shows up as a D drive. Not every software application will load to this drive, but some will. And it's great for picture, video, and file storage, of course.
Cost for a 512Gig chip was less than $80.
A:AnswerIt plays the newest SimCity and all its DLC Like a champ running off of the Origin Game Client. I have steam too, once you get one you realize it IS a full PC pretending to be a tablet then somewhere along the line it lost its way and became something I don't think anyone would have guessed be necessary.. much less better then previous forms of tech. Get the i5 8gb w\ smallest amount SSD. it is out doing everything I used to mess with and I'm no genius but it is geared towards the creative type. Art, engineer, mild gamer, all the normal boring but vital PC stuff. It's not a tablet. It's magic. Hope this helps, probably won't get posted because I'm a weird opinion. But it plays the game better then my 3yr old "laptop" that has a dedicated GPU NVIDIA GF in it.
A:AnswerYes, you can connect your Surface Pro 7 to an external monitor by using an adapter or a dock. Please visit our website for all available options: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/collections/surfacepowerdock
A:AnswerYes, we use Chrome as our primary web browser on all of our Surface equipment. I'm answering this question using Chrome right now! While we don't use Google Apps primarily (we are a Microsoft Office shop), some of our clients do and all of the apps work fine on these machines.
