    What do you get for $999? Are the pen and the keyboard included?

    Information from the Microsoft store:

    Pro X / SQ1 processor
    • Min - max configurations: 8GB / 128GB, $1000 (US price); 16GB / 512GB, $1800
    • There are other, intermediate configurations (4 total IIRC)
    • Only case color is black
    • The pen and keyboard are apparently separate! There is a pen / keyboard bundle. No prices were available, yet, but you can bet they'll be expensive!
    • Accessories include keyboard, USB-C to Headphone Jack dongle, Arc Mouse, dock
    • 13 hour claimed battery life with Fast Charging (80% capacity in less than one hour)
    • Store is supposed to steer customers to the Surface Pro 7 if they need 64-bit apps, Adobe Creative Suite, USB-A or gaming
    • Hardware supposed to be available on 05 November

    You forgot to mention the most important thing: you ordered one!!

    Also, given that the SSD is accessible, I'd rather live with 8GB and update to a larger SSD myself, given the huge upgrade cost to get 16/512.

    I am not yet seeing them or the other new products up for preorder on the Microsoft Store. Do I need to clear my browser cache again or something?

    <<...cant find the pen yet...>>

    At my Microsoft store, the pen came up as a separate SKU, but the staff was still trying to clarify the details about all the accessories, including their prices...

    Note: The Pro X is apparently only available in black, so a black keyboard makes sense...

    Holy crap - teh accessories are nosebleed - especially the pen per The Verge:

    Its optional accessories include the Type Cover that’s made uniquely for the Pro X for $139.99, and the new Surface Slim Pen for $144.99.
