2-in-1 laptops rarely stay in people\u2019s minds if they are looking for the best laptop with i5 processor or the best laptops. However, the Microsoft Surface series of Windows tablets are quite popular among consumers, and for good reasons. The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is similarly great and has aged well over the years.\n\n\n \n Microsoft Surface Pro 6 \n\n\n\n\n\n\nCheck Price\n\n\n\n\nWhy We Like It \u2013 Microsoft Surface Pro 6\nThe Surface Pro 6 is quite old at this point, but Microsoft did such an excellent job making this mostly tablet computer\/laptop, it still holds up to this day, even when you compare it to the new Surface Pro X from last year.\n\n\n\nPros\n\n\n \tGorgeous 12.3 inch 2736 x 1824p display\n \tUp to 14 hours of battery life\n \tOfficial Microsoft Surface type cover included\n\n\n\n\n\n\nCons\n\n\n \tWindows 10 Pro not included\n\n\n\n\n\nPower & Performance\nThe Surface Pro 6 sports an eighth-gen Intel Core i5-8250U Quad Core CPU inside. Even though it is three generations old at this point, it\u2019s still quite capable in terms of power and efficiency. There\u2019s also another variant with a Core i7 processor, but that\u2019ll cost more without a doubt.\n\nRelated: Also check out our Microsoft Surface Go review.\nBattery\nJust like most other Surface laptops, the battery life is excellent here (even better than the Acer Aspire 5 A515). You get almost 14 hours of battery on a full charge, which basically should suffice for a whole working day. If you really need more battery life, you can try turning off things like the Wi Fi, but that probably won\u2019t help much, as the Intel wireless module inside is already very efficient and barely uses any power at all.\nPorts & Expandability\nWell, the I\/O is quite disappointing on the Surface Pro 6. You get just one USB 3.0 port with it (full-sized Type A). There\u2019s no USB C here either. Thankfully it at least retains the SD card slot. If you like this laptop but prefer something with more ports, check out our Mobiledemand Flex 10B review.\nBuild Quality\nJust like with almost every other Surface laptop, tablet, or any other product, the build quality is top-notch overall. Even in tablet mode, the Surface Pro 6 feels sturdy. And the black color variant is no different. The type cover surface of both editions has the same comfy velvet finish.\nValue\nThe Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is over two years old, and you should easily be able to find it at low price points. If you do get this one, we strongly recommend also getting an official Microsoft Surface Pen along with it. And if you have the Microsoft Modern Keyboard accessory, you can also take advantage of Windows Hello as it has a fingerprint reader built-in. However, if you can\u2019t find it for cheap, the ASUS VivoBook S14 S433 thin and light ultrabook is also a good alternative.\nMicrosoft Surface Pro 6 Wrap Up\nAll in all, the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is a great 2-in-1 laptop that can be bought for cheap. But, if you like something that caters more to gamers, you should pick up the Dell G5 15 Gaming Laptop instead.
