Microsoft's refreshed Surface Pro, Laptop and Studio: New specs, pricing, availability

Share

Per The Verge, Microsoft has added Intel's 8th generation processor and a new matte black finish to the Surface Pro 6. He claimed it would offer 13.5 hours of battery life. Following that launch, in the fall of past year, Microsoft announced the Surface Laptop, the Surface Studio and the Surface Book 2. As per a WinFuture report, Microsoft will launch the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 with some specification bumps. Other than a marginally-improved display and "redesigned" cooling technology, it doesn't sound like much else is changing between 2017's Surface Pro 5 and 2018's Pro 6. There's also a possibility to see a new Surface Studio at Microsoft's event on October 2nd.

The lack of ports is something you're either willing to live with or not, but the ongoing lack of USB-C support is just laziness at this point. The device is 85% faster than the previous model, at least according to Microsoft.

With Microsoft all set to host their annual launch event in New York City tomorrow, a new leak surfaced online.

As mentioned above, the external design of the Surface Pro 6 remains largely unchanged thanks to the trademark hinge and aluminum casing.

That was my state of mind as I headed to Redmond last week to get an early, advance look at the new headphones.

The new Surface Pro 6 - Microsoft apparently opted to go back to numbered names for its Surface line - has notable upgrades from last year's Surface Pro.

Microsoft has not announced pricing it. Find it for pre-order in the Store here. The 2-in-1 device will run on Windows 10 and will also be equipped with Bluetooth 4.1. The alternative suggests that either the new Surface Laptops will cost more than $999 for the base unit or that MS is going to charge one heck of a premium to move from 128GB to 256GB of storage. You can charge them via USB-C and while they're US -only for now they'll ship later this year, Microsoft says.
