User Reviews 1 User Reviews The Surface Pro 6 maintains the same sleek and sturdy design, now available in black, offering a hipper vibe. The kickstand, which can open up to a low studio mode, remains useful for activities like sketching with the Surface Pen. The device features Intel's eighth-generation processors, promising improved power and energy efficiency. The 12.3-inch display is brighter with enhanced contrast, though the overall feel is not significantly different from the previous model.

User Reviews 2 The Surface Pro 6 offers various configurations; the i7 for a primary workhorse, and the i5 for basic use and media consumption. Starting at $899, the i5 version with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage performed well, lasting over eight hours with normal use. Ports are standard with USB 3.0, mini DisplayPort, Surface Connector, and a micro SD card slot, but the absence of USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 feels outdated.
As a daily iPad Pro user, the Surface Pro impresses with the ability to replace your computer, running major applications natively. The keyboard attachment, backlit and sturdy, remains the best out there. However, the tablet experience falls short due to a lack of dedicated tablet apps on Windows.

User Reviews 3 I found the design sleek, especially the black colorway. The kickstand allows flexible positioning. However, I experienced some build quality issues with paint chipping and scratches.
The display quality exceeded my expectations with vibrant colors and deep blacks. The keyboard cover also worked remarkably well for typing despite its thinness. Performance handled my needs like Photoshop though some lag could occur.
The ability to run full Windows 10 proves extremely useful. This grants access to desktop apps unlike my iPad Pro. However, I faced numerous software glitches during testing. Battery life delivered around 6-7 hours for me.

In the fast-evolving world of 2-in-1 devices, Microsoft's Surface Pro 6 continues to hold its ground, offering a unique blend of portability and performance. Released on October 16, 2018, this detachable tablet-laptop hybrid has gained attention for its sleek design, robust specifications, and the promise of a full Windows 10 experience.

Design and Display

The Surface Pro 6 maintains its reputation for a sleek and sturdy design, now available in a stylish black color option. The kickstand, a standout feature, provides flexibility, especially for creative tasks with the Surface Pen.

The 12.3-inch PixelSense Display, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, impresses with vibrant colors and improved contrast, though the absence of an OLED screen is noted.

Performance and Battery Life

Powered by Intel's eighth-generation processors, including the i5-8250U and i7-8650U, the Surface Pro 6 promises improved power and energy efficiency.

Testing with a Core i5 configuration revealed efficient handling of daily tasks, but gaming performance struggles with reliance on Intel's UHD Graphics 620.

The battery life, touted at 13.5 hours, showed improvement, lasting around 15 hours and 34 minutes in a review's rundown.

Versatility and Usage Scenarios

The Surface Pro 6 functions admirably both as a laptop and a tablet. However, the tablet experience is hindered by the desktop-centric interface of Windows 10.

The Type Cover, while providing a great typing experience, incurs additional costs. The absence of USB-C is a notable drawback, but the device boasts a decent selection of ports, including a full-size USB 3.0, mini DisplayPort, and a microSD card slot.

User Feedback and Concerns

Early adopters praise the Surface Pro 6 for its ability to replace both a laptop and a tablet. Business users value its portability and flexibility, making it an ideal on-the-go companion.

However, the device receives criticism for its outdated port selection, particularly the absence of USB-C and Thunderbolt 3. Some users reported build quality issues, including paint chipping and scratches.

Software and Performance

The Surface Pro 6 runs on Windows 10 Home Consumer or Windows 10 Pro Business, providing access to a wide range of desktop applications.

Despite its versatility, users reported encountering bugs and glitches, impacting the overall user experience. Performance-wise, the device handles daily tasks well, but more demanding applications may lead to occasional lag.


In conclusion, the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 stands out for its versatility, offering a seamless transition between a laptop and a tablet.

Ideal for business users and creative professionals seeking a portable powerhouse, it falls short for power users expecting cutting-edge features like USB-C and Thunderbolt 3.

Despite its drawbacks, the Surface Pro 6 remains a solid choice for users looking to consolidate their devices into a single, flexible solution.
