    That's still an upgrade from a Surface Go...

    *ahem* only the CPU … it's still too big and heavy.

    OK Panos, they threw down the gauntlet for your kickstand/keyboard design:

    I think this REALLY puts the pressure on the Pro X more so than the regular Pro. In other words, a good keyboard trackpad combo was a decent argument for the Pro even if you tried to stick to ARM apps.

    Of course I'm more and more feeling like MS is moving on from Windows Arm and focusing on Windows 10x hardware and software

    <<...they threw down the gauntlet for your kickstand/keyboard design...>>

    I don't see how that design can have any rigidity...?

    (Note that the existing iPP keyboard cover hinges in the same way, but then you have to set the base in a magnetic groove...)

    Yeah I'm really curious about the rigidity of this setup. They've got pretty good engineers, so I'm prepared to be positively surprised. It might be a while before I get the chance to touch a virus covered demo model though. The bigger change, the keyboard has a trackpad, and mouse control is now a built-in feature of iOS. :eek:
