A couple of weeks back, Microsoft at its Media and Analyst Days 2019 in Bangalore showed the two new devices Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2. The new Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is the successor to Surface Pro after the company skipped Surface Pro 5. From the exterior, the Surface Pro 6 looks almost identical to its predecessor, but has slightly rounded edges.
The Surface Pro 6 gets a big bump inside with an option for 8th generation Intel Core CPU, the same 12.3-inch display, and up to 16GB of RAM. Microsoft claims battery life of 13.5 hours on the new model. The Surface Pro 6 starts at $899, making it a solid convertible, though it does lack an USB Type-C port.

Alongside the Surface Pro 6, Microsoft also announced the Surface Laptop 2 in October last year. It also retains the same design of its predecessor, but lacks USB Type-C port. Under the hood is an 8th generation Intel Core processor, which Microsoft claims will be 85 percent faster and there is double the RAM this year. There is a 13.5-inch display with a resolution of 2256×1504 pixels, and storage option of up to 1TB. Microsoft is still sticking with single USB 3.0 port, and Mini DisplayPort and claimed battery life of 14.5 hours.
