I think most reviewers did a bad job and didn't understand what they were reviewing. The SPX is everything I want. It runs WSL2, docker, office, firefox, chromium all ARM64. I get 10 hours battery life easy, and decent performance and a beautiful screen.Me? No, but I know several tech reviewing friends and all of their experiences matched each other. Lackluster, frustrating device that will need LOTS OF TIME before it becomes useful to the mainstream much less on the go journalists that like to have an "always on LTE connection" on their device for work. So I will save myself the $1,750 cost of entry for a product that can work with FEWER applications than my current device can.
It is literally what I wanted the Surface to be since the SP1. A small tablet with good battery life and a full desktop OS.
This seems like a fair review: Surface Pro X review: More than just a thin Surface Pro with LTE
If it's not the device for you then don't buy it. For me though it's exactly what I wanted for years.
