Buy 16GB of RAM. Just turning this thing on with a few Chrome windows open eats 5.5GB of RAM.

Take most online reviews with a grain of salt.

For work I travel quite a bit and I need something that has LTE and is full Windows. I use Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Connecting to the Internet fast was also a primary concern. It does all of this wonderfully with a great screen, great keyboard and excellent mouse connectivity. The pen seems to work well too, but I have yet to use it much.

The machine is fast and there has not been in bugs per say. The lack of not being able to use some 64 bit programs is a non issue to me. I knew all this going into it. What I do not understand with the Verge and some other reviewers is WE KNEW it would not run some programs Oct 2nd, so why do a review telling us what we already know?? Most if not all reviewers are missing the mark for who this is for. Period.

You want a beast of a machine for the road? This is for you. During a reboot Malware “found” a rootkit in the boot loader. Well that bricked it. Duh! The next morning the retail store manager gave me a replacement SPX. Ten minutes and no questions asked (I knew better)! I been using the X for 3 days. The battery life, instant on and the speed means I no longer need my old Surface Pro LTE (that I loved) Samsung Tab when I travel. Only one device! Yeah there are a few OP sys kinks but I finally have hybrid PC/tablet of my dreams. BTW the Surface Pro LTE had a few kinks for a while. This isn the endpoint device but it a darn good midpoint. Great tablet/computer for traveling business people!
