The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 (6th Gen, 2018) tablet brings one major update over the previous 2017 version – the newer quad-core 8th Generation Intel Core processors (i5-8250U and i7-8650U) instead of dual-core 7th Gen. Also, the Surface Pro 6 additionally offers a matte black chassis color choice, besides the old platinum color.

The rest of the specs remained the same. It’s still a premium-class 1.7-pound Windows 10 tablet with a sharp 12.3-inch 2,736-by-1,824-pixel 3:2-ratio display with IPS wide viewing angles, support for both finger touch and active pen with pressure sensitivity, and with a kickstand on the back of the screen. The pen is sold separately, as same as an attachable keyboard cover.

This magnesium-clad tablet starts at $899. That’s the price of a basic configuration with the Core i5-8250U, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of solid state drive-based storage. The Surface Pro 6 is also available with 16GB of RAM, and 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB SSD options. The Surface Pen is $99, while the keyboard covers start at $129.

What’s missing on the Surface Pro 6 (at least for now) are a lower-power processor option, like the Intel Core i3 or m3, and 4G LTE mobile broadband connectivity. These are available on the older version of the tablet. Also, the offered Core i5-8250U and i7-8650U processors both feature the Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics, whereas the i7 chip in the 2017 Surface Pro has faster Intel Iris-series graphics.

According to Microsoft, the battery of the Surface Pro 6 can provide “up to 13.5 hours of local video playback”.
