A week with the Surface Pro X

I’ve spent a bit more than a week with my new Surface Pro X. What follows is review of my experiences with it as a try to set it all up for it to become my main machine. Be aware dear reader that this is not a review with benchmarks, graphs, and comparisons with alternative machines. This is a personal account and ecosystem commentary of how it has been working for a single person and what this person (me!) is feeling about it. That being said, read on for the nitty and gritty details. I’m providing you with a handy table of contents in case you want to go directly to topics that you’re curious about.

This weekend is AdventureX 2019 at the British Library. It is a game development conference focused on narrative driven games like old adventure games from Sierra On-Line and LucasArts. Those have always been my favorite games ever and I didn’t realize people were still making games like those today. I knew and played some telltale games, the cave, and others which have reached my bubble but I couldn’t imagine the awesome games I’ve seen this weekend.
