The Surface Pro X is a hybrid between a tablet and a laptop running Windows 10, making it a convenient device to carry around. Whenever needed, users can use it as a handy note-taking tablet or a more productive setup with the keyboard attached.

The updated hybrid comes with an all-new Microsoft SQ®2 chipset which boosts performance as well as a Snapdragon X24 LTE modem. As such, those hoping for 5G support might be a little disappointed.

Microsoft promises that the SQ®2 chipset would allow the Surface Pro X to last up to 15 hours of usage. In comparison, the previous Surface Pro X model with the SQ®1 chipset could only last up to 13 hours.

Users would be able to choose from three removable solid-state drive (SSD) options: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. Microsoft has allowed users to swap out the SSD to allow for possible upgrades in the future.

However, Microsoft cautions that even though the SSD is replaceable, it should only be fixed by trained a Microsoft technician. By making its new device a little easier to upgrade, Microsoft has an edge over other products which has never let users upgrade their storage chip.

Pricing and Availability

The 13” Surface Pro X is currently available in Singapore via commercial authorized resellers, at a starting price of S$2,248 in Black and Platinum.

Accessories such as Surface Pro X Signature Keyboard with Slim Pen bundle are sold at S$429. (Three new colors: Platinum, Ice Blue, and Poppy Red, all with the same built-in storage and wireless charging for the Surface Slim Pen.)

Users may purchase the Surface Pro X from these authorised resellers in Singapore:
Best Denki; Challenger; Courts; EpiCentre @ ION Orchard; Gain City; Harvey Norman; Lazada-Microsoft authorised store; Pacific Bookstore; Shopee-Microsoft authorised store and the Microsoft Store.
