The future of laptops with 4G LTE SIM capabilities, a long battery life, and still running Windows has been around since Microsoft introduced the Surface Pro X. Compared to the Surface Pro before, the Pro X has had drastic changes in terms of design. design, less thick, thinner borders, a nicer screen and, of course, the ability to run Windows on ARM chips. The version I borrowed can be connected to 4G Vietnam SIM and run normally, the esim service will continue to check and report to you later.
Of course, the performance of an ARM-customized Microsoft chip will not be as mature as that of an Intel or AMD device, on the other hand, application compatibility will be a little worse, but we still have the benefits. It is indisputable useful from a true mobile platform. On the other hand, the keyboard and the new Surface pen are also more beautiful, more compact and smarter design as auxiliary accessories that add wings to the potential of this Pro X.
This is the Surface Pro X. The screen edges on the sides are significantly thinner than previous Surface models, which really feels good and comfortable. The top and bottom are still thick, explaining this point that we can hold the camera vertically more conveniently, while also having space for the keyboard to tilt up like this.
This is a removable SSD mounting area and the SIM slot is located under the kickstand part of Pro X. We take the SIM stick and push it into the hole, it will bounce, insert the SIM is done.
All hard keys will be put into 2 sides 2. On one side is a screen toggle and a Surface Connector.
The other side will be a volume up and down button and a pair of USB-C ports, not supporting Thunderbolt 3. Basically boldly removing the USB-A port will make it easier for the Surface to be thinner, and at the same time beveling on both sides also helps the device look thinner visually.
The bottom is 2 holes, one side has a connector to attach the keyboard.
The surface of the device is black, mate textures and fingerprints too. Like this, I took my hand back and forth to take a picture and it became like this Must regularly wipe.
This is when the keyboard is inserted and slightly overlaid to create a tilt when typing. At that time, touching the taskbar below area will be a little difficult because the keyboard part of the screen touches the edge of the screen. Still looking beautiful.
Opened, the pen will stay in this position and be fixed by magnets. Everything is very neat and also limits the situation of pen forgetting.
The pen is redesigned, a little flat but comfortable to hold. The side is the button and I like the button at the top of the pen, just an eraser when turning the pen down.
The keyboard is covered with alcantara fabric and is thought to be dirty after typing, especially in hot climates like Vietnam. However I think black will be harder to see.
This is the configuration of the version I borrowed.
Trying to run Winrar x64, the device will say this. Basically looking for ARM64 or 32 bit software is still normal.
