Early this month, Microsoft announced the new Surface Pro X, an ARM-powered device running full Windows 10. Unlike other Surface Pro devices, Microsoft partnered with Qualcomm to create a custom ARM-based SQ1 chipset to power this device. It also features LTE connectivity. Despite being the thinnest Surface, the Surface Pro X will offer great performance and visual experience through its virtually edge-to-edge 13” touchscreen. You can transform the Surface Pro X in to a laptop with Surface Pro X Signature Keyboard and Slim Pen.
Today, we came to know that Microsoft will be selling a special variant of Surface Pro X for business customers. Like other Surface for business devices, the new Surface Pro X for Business will be running Windows 10 Pro, instead of Windows 10 Home. But both consumer and business edition of Surface Pro X will be powered by the same Microsoft SQ1 processor. And the business edition will cost $100 more than the consumer edition of Surface Pro X. You can pre-order Surface Pro X for Business from Microsoft here.
If you have already pre-ordered the consumer version of Surface Pro X and you need Windows 10 Pro’s additional enterprise management and security tools for the workplace, you can switch to Windows 10 Pro for just $99 after you receive the device.
