Price is in USD

Also, keyboard and pen sold separately.

I hope there's a bundle deal for the complete set. Also, I'll be waiting for some initial reviews, want to know if this is powerful enough to what I plan to use this for.

Below m3 spec but above Atom... hm.. it looks nice, and I did like my Surface 3, but I found it too slow to be useful and ended up selling it. The Surface Pro 4 was great but even though it was fast enough, it had some reliability issues and the Intel HD graphics weren't good enough for gaming either so sold that when I moved to a gaming laptop. That being said, I did like the Surface form factor as it was just so convenient to bring around and pop up.

Lol. 2in1 most of the time isn't meant for gaming. It's more probable and light usage work on PC.

Always thought Surface Pro's 12~13 inch is just nice for portability and productivity. 10 inch seems a bit too small, maybe more suited for taking notes.

if the primary use for this is just media consumption plus random light PC work, i think it's ok not to buy the keyboard. But you should have a BT keyboard already haha.
