The new Surface Pro X is impressive. Not only does it rock an ARM processor from Qualcomm called the Microsoft SQ1, but Microsoft managed to work with the company to support a full version of Windows 10. It also rocks a new design that sets it apart from the other new Surface products announced, providing a glimpse of what's yet to come for the entire Surface line-up.
You're looking at a 13-inch touch display with 2880x1920 resolution, 267 PPI, and 3:2 aspect ratio, all working with the new Surface Slim Pen. Adding to performance hardware is up to 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 512GB of storage that can be upgraded in the future.
To top all of this off is LTE allowing you to remain connected so long as you're in range of a nearby cell tower. Two USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 ports and a Surface Connect port for charging can be found on the sides, with a 5MP front-facing camera (1080p) and 11MP rear camera (1080p). The whole package weighs in at just over 1.5 pounds.
