A new video from Microsoft Mechanics takes a deep dive into the new line of Surface devices. The video examines the Surface Laptop 3, Surface Pro 7, and Surface Pro X. Jochen Siegl, a Microsoft Surface engineer, breaks down the new additions to the Surface line with host Jeremy Chapman.

In the video, Siegl shares what's new in each device, including design changes, internal improvements, and the shared innovations across each new Surface. The video clocks in at just over 13 minutes, so Siegl has a chance to do spec comparisons, examine new form factors, and discuss new color options.

The video takes a look at both incremental improvements like increasing the size of trackpads, as well as the design overhaul seen in the Surface Pro X.
