Yes, that $799 Surface Pro 6 deal comes with an 8th Gen Core i5, 8GB RAM and a Platinum Type Cover, and a 128GB SSD. That storage limit will force some users to be more conscious of how they manage space, and push you toward keeping data in the cloud or opting for the Amazon deal.
In our review of the Surface Pro 6, we gave Microsoft's 2-in-1 props for its speedy quad-core performance accompanied by its long 9-hour battery life and incredibly comfortable keyboard. Its 12.3-inch, 2736 x 1824 panel covered a solid 136 percent of the sRGB color gamut and hit 408 nits of brightness.
Be cautious, however -- this deal doesn't include the $99 Surface Pen. It's also worth noting the Surface Pro 6 doesn't have any USB-C/Thunderbolt ports. But if you're looking for a great Windows 2-in-1 detachable with a keyboard right out of the box, this is an excellent starting point.
