Is Microsoft's Surface Pro X available in different colors?

Best answer: No, the Surface Pro X is only available in black. Additionally, the Microsoft Slim Pen and the Surface Pro X Keyboard are also only available in black.A fresh Surface Pro: Microsoft Surface Pro X (opens in new tab) (From $999 at Microsoft)Black keyboard: Surface Pro X Keyboard (opens in new tab) (From $140 at Amazon)Fancy bundle: Surface Pro X Signature Keyboard with Slim Pen Bundle (opens in new tab) ($270 at Microsoft)Sleek pen: Microsoft Surface Slim Pen (opens in new tab) ($145 at Amazon)Flashy mouse: Microsoft Arc Mouse (opens in new tab) ($80 at Microsoft)

Back to black

The Surface Pro X only comes in one color, black. While the Surface Pro X has a sleek design, thin bezels, and a refreshed look when compared to other Surface Pro devices, it leaves a lot to be desired in terms of color options. While the Surface Pro 7 comes in platinum and black, the Surface Pro X is only available in black.

Limited colors of accessories

Just like the Surface Pro X's body, most Surface Pro X accessories only come in black. This substantially limits your ability to personalize your Surface Pro X and express yourself through the device.

The Surface Pro X Keyboard (opens in new tab) looks nice, but is only available in black. The Microsoft Surface Slim Pen (opens in new tab) features a flat design that makes it easy to store inside the Surface Pro X Signature Keyboard, but like other Surface Pro X accesories, is also only available in black. Even the Surface Pro Signature Keyboard with Slim Pen Bundle (opens in new tab) is only availalbe in black, though it does feature Alcantara on the keyboard.

The only real option you have to add an accessory with some color is the Microsoft Arc Mouse. Microsoft recently announced the Lilac and Sage (opens in new tab) versions of the mouse as well as the Ice Blue and Poppy Red (opens in new tab) versions of the mouse. Though, if you want to match the rest of the Surface Pro X line, you can also grab it in black (opens in new tab).
