Why buy from Amazon?

The biggest reason to buy the Microsoft Surface Pro X on Amazon instead of any other retailer is because Amazon, in general, has the fastest shipping of any online retailer. Whereas something may take up to a week to ship from other sellers, Amazon typically is able to deliver things in three or four days. The shipping will be even faster if you have Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) because Prime members can get their shipping speed whittled down to two days. Finally, Amazon also offers some extensive Protection Plans for devices like the Microsoft Surface Pro X that you can pay extra for. They aren't exactly cheap, but if the free one-year warranty that Microsoft offers with the Surface Pro X isn't enough for you, you can effectively extend it by two-three years with one of Amazon's Protection Plans.

The Microsoft Surface Pro X, which was announced Wednesday, is looking like it's going to be a seriously capable 2-in-1 laptop.

It's got LTE capability, two USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 ports, and compatibility with Windows Hello, too, and the detachable keyboard looks to offer a high-quality typing experience.
