Microsoft Surface Pro 6 review

 

The best one yet, but only just

Quad-core processing ; Long battery life ; Excellent new color option

Still no USB-C ; Dated USB 3.0 port ; Few meaningful improvements

Microsoft’s Surface Pro 6 is faster, longer lasting and now comes in a sleek, new black shell and … that’s about it. This is no doubt a better device than last year, but it might not be the generational leap some were hoping for. If you already own a...

Review: Microsoft Surface Pro

 

The latest Surface Pro adds better processors and graphics, so is it a useful machine for creatives?

New hinge – Studio Mode – great for sketching ; Pen is ace (but costs extra) ; Brilliant screen

Surface Pen costs extra ; Surface Type cover costs extra ; With Type Cover it's difficult to work on your lap

Microsoft's Surface Pro looks great, is fast and has an excellent screen. For the top-end model it’s expensive, though.

Great power; perfect for working on the move; Touch Cover keyboard is impressive.

Seriously weighty; battery life is disappointing; limited choice of apps.

MICROSOFT Surface Pro - 256 GB

 

I was sick of taking holidays from work and not being able to keep an eye on things without dragging along a multitude of devices. My iPad was great for movies on the plane, but not so good for remote desktop to the office, lengthy emails and...

The size is maybe not quite as handy as an iPad on a plane, but it's a minor niggle. The keyboard and stylus are not cheap accessories for the average consumer and the keyboard really is a must...
