Early reviews of the Surface Pro X suggest that Microsoft’s new $1000 tablet looks great, gets decent battery life, and performs well… when you’re running apps that have been ported to run on Windows devices with ARM-based processors.
Things slow down a bit when you want to run 32-bit x86 apps, because emulation is required. And 64-bit x86 apps won’t run at all. One workaround? Run a remote desktop app on your Windows on ARM computer so you can remotely connect to a system that doesn’t have those limitations.
