Surface Pro X LTE Review

I bought one of these new with the intention of running Open CPN.
It looked great from its specs. Had excellent battery life; nice form factor etc.....
However, the built in gps does not exist in the Australian supplied models. This machine gets its great battery life because it runs on an AMD chipset and not intel. Apparently it is the only one in the Surface range that does this. It has a "special" version of windows that my oeSENC maps didn't like. Very laggy.
Probably a good machine for a bussines man on the go, but for using it on your boat with Open CPN I would not reommend it.
I ended up returning it to the retailer and they gave me a full refund, on the basis of not being suitable for my intended application, despite what their salesman said when he sold it to me.
