  • Microsoft claims that this year’s model has a much longer battery life. 14.5 hours is longer than an average office day, but we should consider various scenarios. Graphic apps, for example, can drain the battery faster than Word or Excel.
  • Microsoft added the black color to the line-up, so the Surface Pro 6 can be distinguished by its look.
