Latest Generation of Surface from Microsoft: Surface Pro X
Microsoft has promised during the launch of its latest Surface Pro model that users will be able to use the Surface Pro X for at least 7 years due to its new Microsoft SQ1™ processor which is 3 times more powerful than the Surface Pro 6.
Maximizing performance, productivity, connectivity, and battery life in the signature thin design was the goal when Microsoft collaborated with Qualcomm® to develop the custom Microsoft SQ1™ processor. The result: PC power in an ultra-thin, 2-in-1 laptop, and a new class of modern, lightweight, LTE-enabled designs that build on renowned Qualcomm® DNA — with all-day battery life to fully support an always-on, always-connected mobile lifestyle.
The upgraded unibody magnesium design looks super sleek and it is now thinnest 2-in-1 laptop at 7.3mm!

The Pen stores securely and recharges in the luxurious, Alcantara® covered keyboard, complete with backlit keys and large multi-touch glass trackpad. You will never lose the pen easily again!
You can write, sketch, charge and repeat with the rechargeable Surface Slim Pen, featuring tilt for shading, exceptional pressure sensitivity, and virtually no lag.
Writing and drawing with the redesigned Surface Slim Pen feels natural, with a thin, light, easy-to-hold profile. Tilt the precision inking tip to shade your sketches, just like you would with a graphite pencil.
Equipped with both LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity, you can insert a data sim card directly into the Surface Pro X for all-day on the road blazing fast LTE Advanced Pro connection. You no longer need to seek out Wi-Fi connections or use your mobile hotspot which will drain your mobile's battery!
There are now 2 USB-C™ ports connecting to displays, docking stations, and more, resolving the previous issue of not enough ports.
The 5.0MP front-facing camera with 1080p full HD video plus dual far-field Studio Mics will make your Skype calling crystal clear. The audio quality from upgraded 2W stereo speakers with Dolby® Audio™ is also much better than most laptops.
