Microsoft's new Surface Pro X made a big splash at the fall Surface event today. The 2-in-1 tablet is the first Surface to run Windows 10 on ARM, and it does it all on a custom Microsoft SQ1 chip developed with Qualcomm. Further, the device represents a massive overhaul of the Surface Pro design language, with an incredibly thin and light design, slim bezels, and the addition of USB-C ports for all connectivity.

Check out our hands-on video above for our full hands-on from the event, including a look at how the new Surface Pro X Keyboard works with the rechargeable Surface Slim Pen.

Surface Pro X is now available for preorder starting at $999 and is set to ship on November 5.
