KUALA LUMPUR, 13 OCTOBER 2020 – Microsoft today announced that the updated Surface Pro X is now available in Malaysia via commercial authorised resellers and authorised retailers at a starting price of RM 6,999.
The latest updates to Surface Pro X offer a new configuration that includes Microsoft’s next-generation custom processor and a new Platinum finish, along with new app experiences, resulting in longer battery life and increased performance across all Surface Pro X devices.
“We introduced Surface Pro X last October to push the boundaries for what an always connected, ultra-light and incredibly thin 2:1 device could be,” said Michal Golebiewski, Microsoft Malaysia’s Chief Marketing & Operations Officer.
“This year, we’re bringing new updates to Surface Pro X to Malaysia. This includes new app experiences, enhanced performance and a new platinum finish, delivering a new experience to those who need to be connected, productive, and creative at any time.”
For customers who need more power, Microsoft has refreshed its top-end Surface Pro X SKUs by adding the new Microsoft SQ® 2 processor – the fastest processor in its class – and a new Platinum finish.
Surface Pro X brings the best of today’s web-first experiences like Microsoft 365, Microsoft Edge, Netflix, Spotify and more, while supporting thousands of the existing Windows apps like Google Chrome, Firefox, and Whatsapp. There is increased momentum from key app partners embracing Windows on ARM, taking advantage of the power and performance benefits of Microsoft SQ®1 and SQ®2 processors to bring new experiences for all Surface Pro X customers.
Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Teams have also been made faster while using less battery with new versions optimized for Windows on ARM, with plans to expand support for running x64 apps. For developers, Visual Studio code has also been updated and optimized for Windows on ARM. This results in overall faster performance and longer battery life with Surface Pro X now getting up to 15 hours of battery life across both configurations.
Surface Pro X is the thinnest and most connected 2-in-1 device. Access to fast, reliable bandwidth to support remote learning and working for multiple people in a household has become challenging for many. With ultra-fast Gigabit LTE connectivity, Surface Pro X users always have a direct connection on demand.
The new Surface Pro X is generally available from 13 October 2020 via commercial authorised resellers such as SoftwareONE and Prestariang Systems Sdn Bhd, as well as authorised retailers such as All IT, Gloo by SNS, Harvey Norman, Lazada-Microsoft flagship store, PC Image, Senheng, Shopee-Microsoft flagship store and TMT by Thundermatch.
Surface for Business devices provide specific experiences and features built especially for commercial customers including enterprise-grade security, and leading modern management with Autopilot, Surface Enterprise Management Mode (SEMM) and Microsoft Intune. Windows 10 Pro comes standard on Surface for Business devices, offering additional built-in security and management features that lets our customers focus on running their business.

 Up to 15 hours of battery life based on typical Surface device usage.

Testing consisted of full battery discharge with a mixture of active use and modern standby. The active use portion consists of (1) a web browsing test accessing 8 popular websites over multiple open tabs, (2) a productivity test utilizing Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook, and (3) a portion of time with the device in use with idle applications. Tested with Windows Version 10.0.19041.1(20H1) and Edge version 85.0.564.51. All settings were default except screen brightness was set to 150nits with Auto-Brightness disabled.
