Microsoft's Surface Pro 6 is one of the best 2-in-1 laptops you can own. In fact, it offers better battery life (9:20) and a more vivid display than the Surface Pro 7. In our Microsoft Surface Pro 6 review, we loved its fast performance, long-lasting battery life, and colorful display. Although it lacks USB-C and Thunderbolt ports, the Surface Pro earned a high rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars for its fast quad-core performance.
The Surface Pro 6 has the same light and portable build as its successors, the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Pro X. Its versatile 2-in-1 design lets you easily configure it into any of three modes: tablet, laptop or studio. At 0.33-inches thin and 1.7 pounds (2.4 pound with the keyboard), the Surface Pro may be svelte, but it's sturdy and stable.
In real world tests, we found its display remarkably bright and colorful while streaming a movie. Even when we opened 28 tabs open in Chrome with Spotify and Netflix streaming in the background, the Surface Pro 6 never slowed down.
In our lab the Surface Pro 6 notch an overall score of 13,025 in Geekbench 4 performance tests. And in our battery test, it went this distance of 9 hours and 20 minutes which is 1.5 hours longer than the Surface Pro 7's battery life.
As for ports, the Surface Pro 6 has a Surface Connect port, a USB 3.0 port, a mini DisplayPort, a headphone jack and a microSD slot.
The Surface Pro 6 has everything you could ever want in a 2-in-1 and at $550 off, it's a solid deal.
