    I miss this website, as I have been away with all my apple stuff.... but the X might sway me to come back to surface.

    I mean I still have my SP5, but its just the shared home PC now for basic things.

    You all might like watching this hardware overview from Microsoft, featuring the Pro X and Laptop 3. Also passing mentions of the Pro 7. No mention of Thunderbolt 3, sadly.

    It showed a little trap door under the kickstand - was I hallucinating?

    Interesting, he mentions the thickness is 7.3mm, and it's accompanied by a promo video showing that same number. So, the 5.3mm reported earlier might be wrong. Or did he misspeak and quote/show the Surface Pro 7 thickness?

    The video confirms: removable SSD on the Pro X! See 10m34s in the video.

    Could SPX and Neo be my escape from Apple prison?

    Very interesting this is “Pro” and not just Surface 7 - kind of a statement this is not watered down - sure hope so.

    Now - where is that pre-order site!

    It does say a licensed MS tech though.

    As it turns out, it is marketing speak. It is 7.3-mm thick with the kickstand retracted and 5.3-mm with it extended.
    > Note: *Measured at thinness point.
