Microsoft Surface Pro X review

 

We find the Surface Pro X a difficult tablet to recommend even to dedicated fans and mobile warriors. Find out why in our review.

Slick, refined design Comfortable typing Super thin and light

No headphone jack Basic performance for price Just OK battery life

While we applaud the Surface Pro X for its slick and refined, thin and light design, and comfy typing experience, the Surface Pro X is difficult to recommend for most people. It ends up being an ideal device for a very small group of users, thanks to...

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.

The laptop of laptops

 

"Very well packaged to begin, maybe even a bit too much. The laptop/tablet is a great way to get work done on the move or even still to relax, whether that be playing games or streaming movies. The surface pro 6 is great and it's portability makes it...
