The Surface Pro X looks like one of the most exciting Surface devices Microsoft has on the way this year. It's got an excellent 13-inch 2880x1920 display, Microsoft's very potent new SQ1 processor, and it can be configured with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage as well. It has LTE connectivity, two USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 ports, and compatibility with Windows Hello, too. Finally, the device is the most compact Surface Pro ever made, coming in at just 1.68 pounds and featuring a thinner-than-ever design that people who like to take their device on-the-go will love. With how well the device balances capability with size and convenience, it's easy to see why the Surface Pro X is such an enticing device.
