Surface Pro X on Windows 11 and Office 365 Insider

I made a leap of faith today with my Surface Pro X onto Windows 11 Preview and Office Preview. This machine is running Windows on a Snapdragon Chipset instead of Intel/AMD and Windows 11 brings support for lots of apps that would not run before. Now I have Office 64-bit native and Affinity Photos running on this machine and it really makes it whole.

And pretty. So pretty.

  1. Da keimt wieder Hoffnung auf, das Pro X könnte am Ende doch noch mein Hauptrechner werden. 😀

  2. This is admittedly not an apples-to-apples comparison (pardon the pun) but I configured a top of the line Surface Pro X and then made a similar configuration for the new large iPad Pro, and the iPad was about $100 more.

    I hope that iPadOS 15’s fixes and additions will finally (finally!) make the Pro into that touchscreen Mac some people keep hoping for.

    While I love the design of the Pro X and Windows 11 is a nice breath of fresh air, the M1 is such an amazing device, I doubt any Windows devices will be able to compete for at least a year.

    1. Yes, the M1 is the beginning of a new architecture. You can’t beat full integration. Currently it is a bit limiting, but Apple is going to make this a much larger family.

  3. Hast du schon ausprobiert Android Apps unter Windows zu nutzen?
    Würde mich interessieren wie das funktioniert.
    Hab auf meinem Surface auch grade die DEV installiert, aber noch keine Zeit zum Testen gehabt.

  4. Upgraded my personal devices (SurfaceBook 2 & Surface Go 2) to 11. So far, so good. Been running my work device fulltime for almost 6 weeks & have found it pretty solid. Still filing bugs, but it hasn’t prevented me from working, which is good news.
