  • - Microsoft has done a bunch of

  • Surface Pros over the years.

  • There was the Pro 3,

  • the 4,

  • the core i5,

  • and then the 6.

  • Now this year, they're doing two new Surface Pros.

  • There's the Surface Pro 7, which

  • looks like the other Surface Pros I just mentioned.

  • But then there's this one.

  • This, this is very different.

  • This is the Surface Pro X.

  • (heavy electronic music)

  • So right off the bat, there's a 13 inch display

  • inside the same sort of 12 inch chassis essentially

  • that we've seen on the Surface Pro in recent years.

  • You can see either side of this display.

  • The bezels have been slimmed down.

  • Even the top bezel's slimmer.

  • You've still got the Windows Hello camera up there,

  • and all that sort of stuff.

  • And the bottom bezel, you don't even really notice

  • because the type cover pushes right up against it.

  • So the display looks considerably better from what we see

  • on the Surface Pro today.

  • Display resolution itself is 2880 x 1920

  • and it's still the same 3:2 aspect ratio that we've

  • seen on pretty much every Surface device.

  • So there's a lot more to talk about the hardware here.

  • But the one thing you really need to know,

  • is that it has this little thing inside.

  • Now this, this is a Surface SQ1 processor.

  • It's been co-engineered between Microsoft and Qualcomm,

  • so that means that this device

  • is an ARM-powered Surface Pro X.

  • Now we've seen a few of these over the years,

  • and kind of, what it essentially is,

  • is a smart phone chip inside your laptop.

  • So you're supposed to be getting the benefits of the

  • smart phone world, in the PC world.

  • Now what that means is supposed all day battery life,

  • integrated LTE connectivity,

  • so you can just use this device wherever you are,

  • on the train, in coffee shop, wherever.

  • And I've briefly tried the performance here,

  • it feels like I'm using a regular laptop

  • like it's really hard to tell the difference between

  • a Surface Pro 7 and this, just within the few minutes

  • I've been using it.

  • Microsoft has also done some interesting stuff on the GPU

  • side here with Qualcomm.

  • And so essentially the GPU that's integrated onto this chip

  • is a 2.1 Teraflop GPU.

  • Now in real world terms, that's essentially the equivalent

  • power of an Xbox One console.

  • Now that doesn't mean that you're gonna be

  • running Xbox games on here,

  • but what it does mean

  • is it's capable of doing sort of graphics,

  • slightly intensive tasks shall we say.

  • But like current work loads,

  • like if you want to load a game on here,

  • that's kind of some of the restrictions that are around

  • Windows and ARM at the moment.

  • It doesn't support open GL games for example.

  • Some of your apps like Dropbox

  • that integrate into the folder

  • structure of Windows won't work.

  • And that's kind of some of the limitations that exist

  • with Windows on ARM.

  • So the other major hardware change here is the Surface Pen.

  • Now this is a new Surface Slim Pen which is, anyway,

  • as the name implies, a lot slimmer and flatter than

  • the Surface Pro Pens we've seen before.

  • Now what this really means in reality is that it actually

  • slots into the top of the keyboard

  • where it will charge as well.

  • And when you actually undock it,

  • the software will pop up and say,

  • "Do you want to use the whiteboard?"

  • "Do you want to take a screenshot?"

  • All that sort of stuff.

  • So that's kind of new as well.

  • You can also use the button, where you double tap

  • and get your favorite apps.

  • So kind of the same sort of pen experience,

  • but in a very different form factor.

  • The other major change here is that you'll be able to

  • remove the SSDs on this Surface Pro X.

  • Now how you do that is just hidden behind

  • basically the kickstand here.

  • There's a plate that you'll pop off with a SIM tool,

  • and then there's the,

  • you ever see the SIM slot where you get

  • your LTE connectivity from, obviously?

  • And then next to that, is an M.2 SSD,

  • where you can just literally pull out.

  • How this is going to work in principal,

  • is basically for commercial customers who want to

  • swap out their SSDs, and businesses,

  • that's gonna be great for them.

  • But also on the consumer side,

  • if your device fails,

  • like the SSD goes wrong,

  • you can just walk up to a Microsoft store,

  • and they'll swap it out for you.

  • So Microsoft hasn't confirmed whether they're

  • selling these individually or not,

  • but it seems like it could be a possibility in the future.

  • So for this Surface Pro X specs,

  • you're looking at 8 gigs of RAM

  • and 128 gigabytes of storage.

  • Which will then go all the way up to

  • 5x12 gigabytes of storage and 16 gig of RAM.

  • And the Surface Pro X will start at $999

  • and go all the way up to $1,799.

  • So in terms of ports,

  • you won't find any USB-A here.

  • There's actually 2 USB-C ports on the left hand side

  • of the device, right by the volume rocker.

  • And there's no other ports aside from the Surface Connect.

  • So Microsoft is actually keeping the

  • Surface Connect charger port here,

  • that the company has used on the majority

  • of its Surface products.

  • And they've actually moved the power button from

  • the very top that you'd normally find on the

  • Surface Pro, round to the right hand side.

  • And (mumbles)?

  • There's no headphone jack,

  • so get your Bluetooth headphones ready.

  • So this isn't the only Surface Pro today.

  • Microsoft has also got the Surface Pro 7.

  • Now, this looks pretty much like last year's model.

  • The real changes here, is inside.

  • So Microsoft is updating the Surface Pro 7

  • with Intel's latest 10th-gen processors.

  • Now what that means is that you'll be able to select

  • from an I3, I5, or the Core I7 as well.

  • And so pretty much the same sort of options

  • we've seen on the Surface Pro before.

  • Just obviously gonna be better battery life perhaps,

  • better performance,

  • all the sort of stuff that you'd expect

  • from Intel's latest chips.

  • And aside from that,

  • the Surface cover is pretty much the same.

  • There's some new colors though.

  • There's this like red color, which looks

  • a little bit more orange than red, I'd say.

  • And then there's this cobalt blue color,

  • which is essentially a sort of lighter blue color

  • of the blue that we had last year.

  • And then the standard gray color has actually got

  • a little bit darker, like slate gray almost,

  • at least on the keyboard area.

  • The major hardware change here though,

  • is that Microsoft's finally gone

  • USB-C on the Surface Pro.

  • So while we've got 2 USB ports on the Surface Pro X,

  • this particular Surface Pro 7 has a single USB port

  • in place of where the mini-display port was last year.

  • So you've still got the regular USB-A port as well,

  • and Microsoft is still using the

  • Surface Connector here as well, so you'll be able to

  • use all the sort of old accessories and docks,

  • and all that sort of stuff you would have used previously.

  • There's also a headphone jack.

  • So you're getting that over the Surface Pro X.

  • So in terms of raw Surface Pro spec's,

  • you're getting 4 gig of RAM,

  • which goes up to 16 gigabytes as well.

  • You've also got the base level 128 gig of storage

  • which will go all the way up to 1 terabyte of storage.

  • So, not really that different from last year's options.

  • So in terms of pricing, it will start at $749,

  • and that will go all the way up to $2,299.

  • And that's if you want the core i7 processor,

  • 16 gigs of RAM, and the 1 terabyte of storage.

  • So the very top.

  • So you'll be able to pre-order both the Surface Pro X,

  • and the Surface Pro 7 today,

  • but the Surface Pro 7 will arrive on October 22nd.

  • And the Surface Pro X,

  • we don't know exactly when it's going to arrive

  • but sometime later in the holiday season.

  • Microsoft launched a bunch of new Surface hardware today.

  • We've got hands-on videos of all of that,

  • so you should definitely go check out that.

  • But definitely check out www.theverge.com, too.
