Microsoft’s Surface lineup has always been about a premium device, and to showcase their software, and the Surface Pro 6 delivers on that front.

Microsoft’s Surface lineup has always been about a premium device, and to showcase their software, and the Surface Pro 6 delivers on that front. Despite the somewhat questionable update cadence, and even the lack of USB-C, the changes that are here are all very welcome. No one is going to complain about more color options, and the improvements to performance and especially battery life are a boon to all Surface Pro users.

A fantastic tablet PC you shouldn't buy

from The Guardian

The Surface Pro 6 is the best detachable Windows 10 PC money can buy, except for one glaring error: no USB-C or Thunderbolt 3. It’s cheaper, more powerful, lasts longer and is just as well made, portable and easy to carry and live with as last year’s model.

A versatile device for day-to-day work and play

from Stuff

If you need a versatile, creative machine with power and stamina, the Surface Pro 6 could be just what you’re looking for. It isn’t for everybody, though, and you might want to wait for the much-rumoured Apple iPad Pro before you make your decision.

This flagship tablet is better in black

from TechRadar

The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is all about performance improvements tied with a shiny new color scheme. Beyond that, not much – if anything – has changed.
