Microsoft at the presentation of new products showed a tablet that clearly should compete with the iPad Pro. Model Surface Pro X immediately received two USB-C ports, a 13-inch screen, as well as mouse and keyboard support. And the tablet works on full Windows 10.
The Surface Pro X can have 8 or 16 GB, the built-in storage capacity is 128, 256 or 512 GB (the volume is variable). The display resolution is 2880 by 1920 pixels. The sensor of the main camera is 10 megapixels, and video calls and selfies can be done on a 5-megapixel camera. The processor is the SQ1 chip, which Microsoft developed with Qualcomm: eight cores, a frequency of 3 GHz. Operating time on a single charge is about 13 hours.
The cost of the device in the basic version is $ 999. The same amount is requested for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro: the Apple tablet will have 4/6 GB of RAM, 64, 256, 512 GB or 1 TB of internal memory, as well as one USB-C.
Accessories will have to be purchased separately: a keyboard cover costs $ 140, a Surface Slim Pen stylus costs $ 145.
In addition to Surface Pro X, the company updated the Surface Laptop 3 (a 15-inch version and fresh chips appeared) and the Surface Pro 7 tablet – it got a USB-C port and a line of Intel’s tenth-generation processors (Ice Lake). A tablet costs from $ 749, and a laptop – $ 999.
