Microsoft Pro X design is great elegant looking slim 2-in-1 laptop/tablet with SQ1 processor pro- engineered for Microsoft by QUALCOMM. It has curved edges/slim bezels on sides compared to the previous model of surface and its thin and weigh slightly less than the previous generation.
What is in the box: Tablet (Pro X), documentation and sim eject tool, extension cord and the power adapter(65watts).
Measurement & Weight: It measures 11.3 X 8.2 X 0.28 inches and weighs 774 grams (heavier than 12.9 iPad pro which is 631 grams) but lesser than 1 gram compared to Surface 7.
Color: It just comes in only one color, matte black anodized aluminum. One drawback with that black aluminum even though looks great is it’s a major fingerprint magnet and has to be cleaned often. I would suggest installing skins(dbrand) to protect your investment from scratches and fingerprints.
Display: The display on this one is 13-inch PixelSense touchscreen with 2880 x 1920 resolution and 3:2 aspect ratio compared to previous generation. The display uses ambient sensing to keep colors consistent across the display when watching videos on Netflix or YouTube or Amazon Prime.
Operating System: Comes with windows 10 Home installed and has face recognition like password-free windows Hello Sign in. Great try by Microsoft but it’s not as smooth as IOS face recognition but it’s acceptable.
Performance: When it comes to performance, this unit should not be compared with regular gaming laptop. This tablet uses Microsoft SQ1 CPU and Adreno 685 GPU graphics card with ARM chip 32 bit. It also has the WIFI 5 and not the latest WIFI 6. Due to the ARM processor it’s not very robust for adobe photoshop editing or heavy gaming and it’s great for regular day activities like emails, browsing, sketching, streaming Netflix, YouTube and for office documents. You can also download the latest Microsoft Edge Canary build for ARM which optimizes most apps and help run smooth most of apps.
LTE Connect: Surface X is the first tablet from Microsoft to implement LTE advanced Pro connectivity that uses Qualcomm snapdragon X24 LTE modem. There is a SIM card slot at the back behind the kick stand where you can insert any carrier's sim to browse on the GO. Compared to iPad Pro this one is great and perfect for productivity on go if you are a business user who needs to use Microsoft office products like Word, Excel, PowerPoint for business needs.
Charger/ports: On the left side of the unit it has 2 USB-C ports (not thunderbolt port but they do support data charge and display out) and a volume rocker. On the right side it has special Microsoft magnetic surface connect proprietary charger and power button. You can also charge your device using one of the USB C ports. I do have a Dell XPS that charges on USB C and works great for charging this device. The charger in the box is high power 65w charger that can charge the tablet from zero to 100% in 1.5 hours. Also, it does not have a 3.5mm audio port for headphones nor USB A ports like previous generation.
Battery Life: Microsoft advertises the battery life as 13 hours but with good brightness (300 nits), mine lasted for 8 hours 20 minutes. Again, this depends on the usage and applications.
Kick Stand: Built in kick stand that can be adjusted from 0 to 165 degrees for watching movies and for working is very handy and useful. If you lift the kickstand you will find a hole when opened with sim ejection tool, it has the user replaceable SSD and the LTE slot for nano Sim card.
Signature Keyboard & Slim Pen: I also purchased the signature keyboard and slim pen as a package for my productivity. If you don’t need the slim pen then you can just purchase the keyboard for $139. Keyboard is alcantara finish black color that snaps magnetically and has a slot for storing the pen and charging. Slim pen is rechargeable and will automatically position itself if inserted in the wrong direction (upside down) for storing and charging. When the pen is charging it has a small LED that lights up. Slim pen is very handy and when lifted from the charger displays two options on the screen whiteboard and Fullscreen snip.
Pen when clicked at the rear button opens the whiteboard and you have options to select different tips and colors for drawings. It also has a cool ruler where you can select and draw straight lines. You can also select eraser from the tool or you can use the end of the pen to erase like regular eraser on the screen. Very cool and clever design. There are different options to change the settings of the rear button of the pen. You can select what happens when the pen button is pressed once, pressed twice, fonts for handwriting and so on.
Also, when you slide the keyboard in an angle it hides the pen and to me it’s a great design and will function like a laptop. It comes with backlight for keys on keyboards which is very handy when working in dark areas and nights. Not sure if older keyboard of previous generation is compatible but it may not.
Camera: Has front facing 5 megapixel1080p 30FPS camera for selfies or skype /video calls and 10-megapixel rear facing camera with 1080p HD and 4k video.
Speaker & Mic: Great sounding speakers with dual 2- watt front facing Dolby Audio with dual far-field studio mics.
Bottomline: This will be a daily driver for business professionals who need always on connected LTE, large 13-inch bright display, slim down bezel, premium aluminum design, great sounding speakers, magnetic keyboard /pen & upgradable SSD. But it runs on Microsoft new ARM processor that lacks performance on 64bit apps, and works great on 32-bit apps that is optimized for windows as mentioned above. So, if you get this device for heavy video editing or gaming then you will be disappointment because it’s not meant for that audience. Also, pricing on this one is little higher when you add the keyboard and pen as bundle. It costs $1569 + tax for 8GB memory & 256GB SSD model. Overall, it’s a great 2 – in – 1 device that will eventually be a competitor for iPad pro in next few generations.

Always in reach - you can take it anywhere
I've been using the Microsoft Surface Pro X for about a week and half now, and love almost everything about it. Overall, I give it a 4.5/5.
Great product. Overall, great design. Good battery life. Minor app compatibility issues but not a deal breaker.
Absolutely buy the Surface Pro X Signature Keyboard if you’re purchasing the Surface Pro X. They were quite literally made for each other and it shows in a very good way.
I love Windows Hello sign-in. The facial recognition is fast and seamless.
IN DEPTH REVIEW
- Stand: 5/5
They absolutely knocked it out of the park with this stand. It is extremely sturdy and opens so the Surface can rest nearly flat, but slightly elevated which I find particularly useful when drawing with the Surface Pen. It stays exactly where you put it at any angle. It took me a few days to get used to opening it without turning the whole Surface around as its sturdiness means it isn’t an “easy” open. I’m much happier with this design over a design that would open easier and lock to different angles. The flexibility of opening the stand to any desired angle is awesome.
- Ports: 4.5/5
I love the switch to USB-C on all electronics. It’s the way of the near future. I would love to see a USB-C port on both sides of the Surface instead of having 2 on one side, and their proprietary charging/data port on the other.
The proprietary charging port used with the included power adapter is the only thing “ugly” about the Surface. When it’s not connected to the charger, there’s a large hole in the side of the Surface that looks like it’s meant for an oversized SD card. I liked the magnetic connect/disconnect of the charging cable, but it felt awkard trying to position the cable, particularly when I was using it as a tablet and holding it while sitting on a couch. I would prefer the charging port either have a metal cover that slides into place when not in use, or just get rid of it and have USB-C be the only method of charging.
The battery life is great for what I used it for. Product description claims 13 hours, and I can definitely see hitting that without issue if not running any power-intensive applications. Given this is a secondary computer for me, I found myself carrying it around and using it for short periods at a time without charging in between. The one time I let the battery get low, it charged to ~60% in <30 minutes via a USB-C charger I had from another computer.
I love that I can charge this via USB-C, in addition to the charging port/cable it came with. I have USB-C charging cables lying around in multiple parts of my house since it’s becoming more standard, and being able to easily plug the Surface in anywhere was very convenient.
- Cellular/ LTE: 5/5
The surface has a built-in LTE capability but I opted for a more traditional SIM card through Verizon. Side by side with my phone, I found the Surface actually saw better LTE speeds than my phone was getting, despite being from the same carrier and plan.
- Expandable storage: 0/5
There isn’t expandable storage as there is on the Surface Pro 7
App Compatibility: 4/5
Since the Surface Pro X doesn’t use an Intel processor, I’ve had mixed results with apps that I’ve tried to download and play. I was able to run League of Legends, Everquest 2, and Stardew Valley without issue after downloading a compatibility driver, but a couple smaller apps from Steam popped up with an incompatibility error. I couldn’t find any way to tell from an app/game system requirements page whether or not it should be compatible. Given my experience, it’s likely most “mainstream” games and apps designed for a wide variety of systems will likely run, but it seems the only way to know for sure is to install them and see if they run. I’m hoping this changes as the Microsoft SQ1 processor and ARM based processors become more popular.
I used this Surface Pro X with the Keyboard case, pen, and Surface mouse.
- Keyboard Case: 5/5
Don’t buy the Surface Pro X without this case or you’ll be missing out on half of this product. You can tell the computer and keyboard case were engineering together. The case snaps so effortlessly into place via magnets and just works. The case draws power from the Surface so it’s always ready when you are. The surface (no pun intended) of the keyboard case has a texture that just feels good, and holding the Surface Pro X in this case feels as comfortable as carrying around a paper notebook. Even when I wasn’t planning to use the Surface, I found myself carrying it around “just in case” I had something I needed to use it for.
The case has an insert for the Surface Pen, which automatically orientates the pen correctly when placed on the insert and wirelessly charges it. It also smartly tucks away the pen area while the keyboard is in use.
I have 2 small gripes with the keyboard case:
1. Using the Surface as a tablet with the keyboard case flipped around the back felt awkward the keys pressing against where it was resting. I’ve seen other designs where a keyboard case had a flip over cover that might be an improvement over this, but it’s a small thing compared to how much I love this case.
2. Due to the pen insert hiding away while they keyboard is in use, the keyboard near the screen is raised slightly and at certain viewing angles obstructs a tiny portion of the taskbar. It’s not enough to prevent you from seeing things in the taskbar and clicking on them, but at certain angles is just enough to be annoying. This is most noticeable when using the Surface in your lap rather than at a table where you likely will have a different viewing angle.
- Surface Pen: 4.9/5
If you’re going to get the case, you may as well get the pen. If you are interested in drawing or jotting down freehand notes, get the pen. The pen itself is very well designed. The flat shape of it, the weight of it, and the length of it all feel like the perfect combination. I don’t know if they could improve on the physical design of it.
The back of the pen has a button you can press or double press, and the Surface lets you create shortcuts for what those presses do. By default, it launches the drawing app with either press. A neat surprise was figuring out while drawing you could flip the pen over and it will naturally act as an eraser. Extremely clever design and not something I would have ever thought to include.
The responsiveness of the pen takes a little getting used to. The Surface starts tracking the pen with a visual circle cursor like indicator when you get close to the screen, though it doesn’t respond until you physically touch the screen. At first it made me feel like there was a bit of a lag, but I think it’s a perception issue that you get used to after some continued use.
- Surface Arc Mouse: 4/5
The Surface Arc mouse is a “neat” product. It folds flat for storage, and automatically turns off while flat as well. It boasts tracking on nearly any surface, but I had mixed results using it on the arm of a couch. Tracking on a “normal” surface has been fine.
For the price though, it should be rechargeable via USB-C or Qi wireless charging. Everything about the Keyboard and Pen feel effortless, like they were engineered together with the Surface Pro with great attention to detail. Opening the Surface Arc mouse to insert batteries felt archaic by comparison. Hopefully the next generation will incorporate a rechargeable battery.

The Beautiful Tablet That Wanted To Be More
The Surface Pro X is a beautiful tablet. Honestly, it's probably the best looking tablet I've ever had the pleasure to play with and I've handled a lot of tablets. It's thin, has a wonderful black finish and a beautiful bright and clear screen. This alone makes it a worthy tablet, but the fact that it runs a full blown version of Windows 10 makes it even better, right?
Here's where it gets interesting. The Surface Pro X runs an ARM processor underneath it's sleek looks. Now don't get me wrong, the new SQ1 processor that MIcrosoft developed with Qualcomm is a beastly mobile processor, but it's not natively compatible with X86 software and this becomes an issue at times when using this otherwise capable tablet.
Windows 10 can still be pretty awkward to use with just your finger, even in Tablet Mode. You can definitely tell the difference between an OS specifically designed for a tablet, like iOS on the iPad vs an OS that's trying to cater to both keyboard/mouse users and touch users.
If you're using this tablet for email, web browsing and some light office work you won't have an issue as all those apps are going to run, even if they need to be emulated in order to do so. But some apps, most notably Photoshop or full versions of certain applications like Dropbox just aren't going to play nice being with this laptop, either refusing to install or not running reliably. Even applications that do run, but aren't compiled specifically for the ARM architecture are going to negatively impact the battery life of your SPX (Surface Pro X) and that's never a good thing.
This wouldn't be a big deal if the Microsoft Store did a better job at telling you which apps were compatible with the SPX, but it doesn't. It also doesn't have a huge library of applications like you'd find on the Apple Apps Store either.
These things combined bring down the usability of this tablet by quite a bit, but all's not lost as when you combine the SPX with it's companion Keyboard/Pen combo it transforms into a pretty capable workhorse.
You'll be able to fire off emails, surf the web and then relax and watch a movie just fine with the SPX, just don't expect to run many games on it as it's just not designed for that. The graphics capability stops at games like Angry Birds 2 from the Microsoft Store. Don't expect to play any new FPS games with this guy, you'll just end up frustrating yourself.
So long story short. The Surface Pro X is a beautiful tablet. It's about the same size/weight as an iPad Pro of similar size, but runs Windows 10 that works with almost all native Windows applications, but not all of them. It can't play games and it's a little awkward to use without a keyboard, pen or trackpad. This means you'll be spending some more money on the Surface X Keyboard/Pen combo.
The Surface Pro X is a quiet and sleek tablet that really wants to be a laptop, because that's the way it works best. You'll be using it as a laptop more often than not so why not just get a laptop instead?
That's the question you might want to consider before investing in the Surface Pro X.

Perfect for Productivity
This is the first Microsoft Surface product that I've owned and I'm in love. As a professional student, this device helps me be efficient and productive every day.
What initially drew me to this device was the new SQ1 processor developed by Microsoft and Qualcomm. The goal they set out for was a laptop experience with smartphone benefits. I think they succeeded. I can browse the web, watch videos, jam to music, respond to emails, jot down notes, and type up Word documents with laptop-like performance. The Instant On functionality gets me back to work quickly and the efficiency of the processor keeps me working for as long as I need without being strapped to a power outlet. I've only had to charge this device two times in the last week with light to moderate use.
What else do I love about this device? Pretty much everything. At 1.7 pounds, this thing is ultra portable and goes with me everywhere. The hardware is gorgeous with a 13" display and the thinnest bezel I've seen on a surface device. The kickstand is highly adjustable between upright for a laptop-like experience or nearly flat if you're more interested in playing with the device as a tablet for things like drawing. The twin Dolby speakers provide quite a bit of power for clear stereo sound when you want to jam to your favorite tunes. There are two USB-C ports on this device for plugging in hubs for flash drives, SD cards, etc. You can also remove the rear cover on this device with the included SIM tool and swap out the hard drive or put a SIM in the device for LTE connectivity. That's a really nice feature for business professionals.
One thing I want to mention is that I got this device with the Signature Keyboard and Slim Pen and would highly recommend picking those up. If you want to use the Surface Pro X as anything but a tablet - and I think you should - the keyboard and pen are necessities.
As with most electronic devices, individual needs and personal preferences ultimately dictate what device you should get for yourself. The Surface Pro X is built for portability and productivity and that's exactly what I use it for. This is why I love it so much. If you're going to use it for those things specifically, I think you'll be pleased with your purchase. If you're going to want a device that can be used for creative content creation or gaming, I would maybe look elsewhere.

Thoughts from an old man...
The Microsoft Surface Pro X is…well, okay. It’s got some good points; it’s got some not-so-good points. Is it the game-changing, life-altering Surface tablet that we’ve all been waiting for? Meh, probably not. But please understand — it’s not terrible, seriously. If you are truly in need of a portable device like this, and you’re a fan of the MS platform, then this may be just fine for you. Would I run out and replace a Pro 7 that’s running fine? Probably not — unless the following “pros” are reason enough for you to fork out the extra bucks.
I love the sleek styling without sacrificing that feeling of quality. There’s a solid heft to it without being bulky. You can get this engineered aluminum beauty in any color…as long as it’s black (thank you Henry Ford), which I think looks great.
The display is beautiful and vibrant and almost bezel-less. Smaller profile than earlier Surfaces, but with a bigger screen? Go figure.
USB-C ports. Two of them.
The Dolby Studios sound production is rather stellar considering the overall thinness of the Pro X. It’s obviously not going to match a good standalone system, but it holds it’s own, and it is customizable to your taste in sound.
The cameras are darn good for a tablet — 5MP user-facing and 10 MP rear-facing cameras provide a decent foundation for minor editing. Once again, you can do better with an actual camera (or even many phones). Taken pics can go directly to the whiteboard where creativity is spawned. Become that artist you’ve been hiding all your life!
The Pro X is LTE ready. It’s up to you to access this feature through your cell provider, but it’s there whether or not you want it. Who knows what the future holds!
Battery life seems pretty close to the 12-hour MS claim. Definitely better than most laptops.
Battery life (didn’t I just mention that as a pro?) seemed to dwindle quite a bit when my wife decided that she wanted to navigate with Chrome. Maybe this is more of a compatibility issue?…but I did want to mention it.
Ok, I’m an old man. I miss not having the headphone jack. I say that, and yet I just finished listening to Tool’s Fear Inoculum over the seamless bluetooth connection with my trusty 65t’s, so what am I complaining about?! Anyway, now you know that there’s no headphone jack…
Don’t think that the Pro X will also fill your gaming needs. It won’t. It’s a mobile device as far as that goes. That being said, it does just fine with mobile games.
The Windows 10 platform. Yep, I just don’t care for it, but that’s just me. I grew up in the world of Google and Mac. This is not a big deal — I just simply prefer the others. I’m constantly thinking, “Oh yeah, they want me to do this to do that…” Like I said, no biggie. Just a matter of preference. Note: I’m not getting rid of it. I’ll just continue on with Chrome and accept the lower battery life, which is still pretty good.
So, is it worth the price? It's not cheap, so the jury’s still out. A lot of other variables enter in the answering of that question. It is a cool looking machine and we’re going to enjoy it and the keyboard/pen we got with it when we travel and as a second unit when the desktop is occupied. Honestly, I still have a lot to learn about the world of the Surface and what I can supposedly do on it that I can’t do on other tablets or laptops.

Sleek & Stylish Tablet PC
This is a beautiful tablet/PC. It is super thin, and has a bigger screen with way thinner bezels than past
Surfaces. It is not built for heavy gaming at all. It does however play the little arcade type game apps
from the Microsoft store just fine. I would say this specific Surface is aimed more towards students,
businesspeople, or even graphic designers. It’s great for web browsing, using Microsoft Word, Excel,
Powerpoint, Photoshop, Whiteboard with the stylus, checking email, streaming, ect.. The screen has
good touch responsiveness, even with the cheap tempered glass protector I applied to it, and the resolution is outstanding. I do feel like the speakers can sound a bit
muffled once above 50% volume so that was a downside. However, I plugged in my USB C AKG earbuds
which are fully compatible so that made the issue obsolete for me. This is the first device I have used
Microsoft Hello with. It works so incredibly fast to just scan my face and log me in within a second.
Watching videos on Youtube, Streaming on Netflix, and Hulu work great with no issues with buffering.
All together it feels super high quality and it is just so sleek and stylish looking. It runs great for basic
computer uses, just not for gaming. I highly recommend purchasing the keyboard/stylus to go along with your surface so you get that true laptop type feel.

Once I received this Surface Pro X and opened the box, IMMEDIATELY I was impressed. The look is sleek and classy. And this thing is LIGHT, extremely light.
Pros: I love the 13” touch screen. The texture of the screen is unlike any that I have ever used. I am an Apple fanatic, and my oldest son is in Medical School and several of his classmates have the prior version of the Surface Pro, and he told me this was a great product. He was right.
And when Microsoft says its “edge-To-edge they are not exaggerating. The screen is not too small or not too big, it just seems RIGHT. The colors on this Pro X are second to none. Crisp. Bright. Amazing. There (to this point) is no “lag” when you touch the screen, it seems as if its “waiting” on you. Very responsive.
Out of the box the set-up was simple and quick. It recognized our home WI-FI and log in was a breeze. And this thing is fast. I love the speed of the processor and how much you can do with this laptop. I received this over a week ago, so I’m still “finding my way around”. But the apps, the response, the programs, I AM VERY IMPRESSED.
As I previously said, the weight is unreal, this thing is so light that you can forget you have it in your hand or sitting on your lap. I like the way you can transition from tablet to computer seamlessly. The matte black finish is pleasing to the eyes.
The camera is very clear, and the pictures it takes are very good. I love the face recognition on this computer. I love everything about this computer. It has/is taking me some time to adjust back to a Windows product after using the Apple platform for so long, but I’m adjusting a little more day by day.
If you want/need a good, dependable (to this point) laptop/tablet don’t hesitate to buy this. You too will be IMPRESSED!
So far, I haven’t found any!

My New Travel & Day to Day Windows Box
I have been using this about a week now and so far, it has exceeded my expectations. I was a bit skeptical at first based on a few of the reviews. To be clear, I am not a gamer, so I was fine in giving the SG1 a chance. I have not been disappointed.
I was looking for a smaller profile Windows-based machine. I love my 15in HP Spectre360 but it’s a couple years old now and I was looking for a 13in form factor. I also own a 2018 ipad but still wanted the windows 10 OS but the smaller in a 2in1 was appealing. I also got the Signature keyboard and Pen. If you really want to appreciate the how great this device is, you really need that keyboard.
I primarily use Windows machines for surfing, streaming and productivity. Heavy on the MS Office suite so that is key. I have attached keyboards to tablets for years, from Samsung’s to iPad. I must say that this Surface Pro with the premium keyboard and the tilt is amazing. When I set it on any table or surface and begin to work with the keyboard and touch pad, it is as smooth as any of the nicer laptops I have ever had.
It is instant on, SSD is snappy for retrieving all my docs and pics. I moved over 100GB of files and pics to this baby. I am easily able to have Word, Excel and Powerpoint as well as Edge & Firefox open at the same time and still only consuming 80% of the 7.5GB available memory.
I have achieved around 8-9.5 hours of battery life with normal usage. I am not a fan of the charger, but the nice thing is the 2 included USB-C’s work fine with my universal USB-C charger that I use for my mac and HP laptop as well as my Samsung phone so it’s super convenient to travel with.
Display resolution is fantastic at 2880 x 1920, onboard Dolby sound was much better than I expected. It does not have a headphone jack but no worries, I was able to connect up 2 different Bluetooth headsets with ease. Cameras are great, front facing webcam is a 1080p 5mp camera but the rear facing camera is a 1080p/ 4K 10mp camera.
Overall, I am moving to replace my current windows laptop with this one. It’s light, it’s easy, it has great storage and fast response with the 256 SSD and 8GB Ram. Very easy to travel with and I am probably going to add the LTE chip from my current Verizon carrier to make it always on accessible.
The keyboard design with the pen tucked in so you just pull out the keyboard…..wow! Amazing that it just snaps back in when you don’t need it. The keyboard and trackpad are comfortable and very usable. The keyboard is lightly slanted and using it is easy on the wrist. It does not feel like some add on tablet keyboards feel, this one is much more natural to me. The design specs here are far and above the general competition!
I would recommend this but must say that that you have to have the Premium Keyboard/Pen combo to close the deal. It’s outstanding without it, but amazing with it !

Microsoft Surface Pro X review: This isn't the long-lasting tablet we were hoping forMicrosoft's Surface Pro X reimagines the Surface Pro tablet line, but its battery life misses the boat, and bugs and other issues narrow its usefulness.
A:AnswerI was not impressed with the performance of it. I am returning it for the pro 7. The lte is a cool option but not worth the lose in performance. I also had issues with some programs. Since it is a 32 bit processor that emulates a 64 bit, I couldn’t even load a few programs.
A:AnswerYes, the full office 365 suite works perfectly on this tablet. The only drawback I have found is you cannot load the regular version of dropbox on this tablet, it does not support it. So if you use dropbox as your cloud storage I would not recommend this tablet.
A:AnswerSurface Pro X supports the following LTE Bands: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 38, 39, 40, 41, 46, 66. We recommend checking with your network to see they are compatible with Surface Pro X.
