Bob Ross said, "We don't make mistakes, just happy little accidents." One Reddit user is the beneficiary of a happy little accident that sent a Surface Pro 7 almost two weeks early. Reddit user "Tweey" shared a post recently that shows off the delivered Surface Pro 7 in retail packaging. The Surface Pro 7 is set to come out on October 22, 2019, giving Tweey almost two weeks to play with the device before anyone else receives theirs.

According to the post, the Surface Pro 7 was shipped to Tweey in Norway. Specifically, Tweey ordered the Intel Core i5 version with 128GB of storage. As you'd expect, Reddit users are filling the comment section asking for benchmarking scores and more images of the device.

The Surface Pro 7 isn't an overhaul of previous Surface Pro devices but brings a USB-C port, WiFi 6 connectivity, and upgraded internals.

  • What a lucky guy!
  • That's way earlier than 2 weeks. Estimated shipping date here in Scandinavia, at least for my SPX is NOVEMBER 22, not October.
  • Ahh, I was wrong... October 22 for SP7, November 22 for SPX
