Microsoft’s Surface Pro has proved to be a worthy competitor for other products. The Surface Pro 6 is the latest addition to the line. Today we are going to take a closer look at the product and see whether you should really upgrade.
The display of the Surface Pro 6 did not disappoint us. It has a 2,736 x 1,824 resolution and it comes at 12.3-inches. There isn’t a major difference from the Surface Pro 5 display, but the colors are popping and the entire experience is a good one.
One thing that is notably missing from the Surface Pro 6 is a USB-C port. While Microsoft tends to distance itself from Apple, the company should understand that USB-C is here to stay, and adding a port or two to its product could really improve it. The display also comes with great touch features and it is very responsive.
The base model of the Surface 6 has a 8th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. You can also get an Intel Core i7 with 16GB of RAM and a full 1TB of storage. Obviously, the price is a lot higher for those specs.
Nonetheless, for a day-to-day use, the base model is more than enough. This Surface Pro 6 does its job well and it is very efficient. You should get the upgraded model only if you plan on using it for complex tasks.
The accessories are also important, and you might want to purchase those as well. The Microsoft Surface Pen costs 100$, while the Microsoft Type Cover is available for $130. They are less expensive than Apple’s accessories, but they are still pricey.
