Amazon is offering the Microsoft Surface Pro X 16GB/256GB for $999.99 shipped. Down $300 from its normal going rate of $1,300, today’s deal marks a new all-time low that we’ve tracked at Amazon. The Surface Pro X uses Microsoft’s in-house SQ2 processor that’s based on the same underlying technology as Apple’s M1: ARM. This allows Microsoft to offer impressive all-day battery life on the Surface Pro X as well as built-in LTE for working on-the-go, something Apple has yet to offer in their Mac line of computers, though the iPad does now have 5G connectivity. All of this combines to deliver a solid experience all around, with plenty of processing power for working away from home. Plus, at just 1.7 pounds, it’s the “thinnest and lightest Pro” device from Microsoft yet. Keep reading for more.
Of course, you could opt for the 5G-enabled iPad Air for $750 at Amazon instead. This is a full 25% below today’s lead deal and still delivers a solid on-the-go experience. While iPadOS might be a bit more limited then Windows on the Surface Pro X when it comes to computing tasks, you’ll find that the iPad Air now features Apple’s impressive M1 processor, which easily allows it to edit photos in Lightroom or video in LumaFusion.
