The Surface Pro X did not quite live up to our expectations for a performant ARM-powered laptop, but it turns out there are at least a few people who are very impressed with the device.
Trevor Noah, the host of the Daily Show, has listed his 10 essentials he can’t live without for GQ Magazine, and next to his electric toothbrush the Surface Pro X ranks very highly.
He notes it gives him the option of a tablet experience when he wants while still having full access to desktop websites and experiences when he needs them.

The Surface Pro X is Microsoft’s first ARM-powered Windows 10 Surface and instead of using a generic Snapdragon processor, Microsoft partnered with Qualcomm to create a custom SQ1 chipset to power this device. Surface Pro X also features LTE connectivity. Despite being the thinnest Surface, it will offer great performance and visual experience through its virtually edge-to-edge 13” touchscreen. You can make Surface Pro X a full laptop with Surface Pro X Signature Keyboard and Slim Pen.
