Microsoft Surface Pro X Review.

Microsoft Surface Pro X, the edge to edge 2 in one laptop everyone is talking about. I had a chat this morning with Microsoft Agent on their site about it. So I was on a Skype call with my friend who is in Sweden and saw the Sleek Surface on her table and I knew that was it. After the call, I immediately keyed the Microsoft store URL in Kenya on my Chrome to check if this device is available and affordable in the country, sadly not, but we let’s review it anyway, hoping that it will be launched soon. I have always been a tablet and IPAD lover because they are so portable and reliable to use. The battery life of a tablet and the fact that I can pull it from my bag anywhere, anytime to stream music, log in my social networks and browse through the timeline so easily with a widescreen view has earned my trust in these devices.

But are tablets a suitable substitute for traditional computers? Of course not, and Microsoft and other tech companies like Asus, Intel and Apple are competing to provide solutions to protect the sales of their computers from decreasing when people are in search of reliable and portable devices. They have been developing laptops that can serve many purposes in attempts to tailor customer needs like recently Asus unveiled  Asus ZenBook Pro Duo, an amazing first computer with dual screens for multitaskers.

November this year, Microsoft launched its new device, Microsoft Surface Pro X saying the ultra-thin and always connected, Surface Pro X combines ultimate mobility with amazing graphics, the virtually edge-to-edge Pixel Sense™ 13″ Display touchscreen, with signature 3:2 ratio will give users the most workspace possible. The slightly curved all-aluminum Surface Pro X only comes in one color, black, but is undoubtedly the best laptop of 2019 for the travelers who would like to carry on with all their routine activities anywhere out of their offices and homes.

Designed for speed and connectivity, Surface Pro X allows you to execute your activities whether moving quickly, running from meeting to meeting, catching up in a cab or multitasking on the train, the custom Microsoft SQ1™ processor inside the device which Microsoft and Qualcomm® partnered to develop, helps users keep up. Fast Outlook, MS Excel, and browser performance, plus high-quality video chats, seamless email, and 4k streaming let you stay productive, save time, and be connected nearly anywhere, at any time.
