Microsoft launches new Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2
Microsoft’s latest machines are leaner, faster and they look great in a range of new colours...
Microsoft unveiled the latest Surface Pro and Surface Laptop at an exclusive launch event in New York on Tuesday 3rd October.
Let’s take a closer look at what they’ve got to offer…
Surface Pro 6 – fast multitasking on the move
The Surface Pro 6 is designed for busy people on the move. With its built-in Kickstand and Signature Type Cover, you can easily switch between laptop, studio and tablet modes.
The new Pro 6 features Microsoft’s latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor for faster multitasking – even when you’re running lots of power-hungry apps. And no matter how hard it works, the fanless cooling system stays quiet as a mouse.
Although more powerful than ever, the upgraded processor still fits into a slim, lightweight body. Weighing under 800g and with 13.5 hours of battery life, the Surface Pro 6 lets you work – and play – all day.
For those who prefer to write rather than type, the interactive touchscreen and Surface Pen (which is sold separately) allows you to get creative and embrace a more natural writing experience.
There’s good news for those who want something a little bit different – as well as the standard Platinum colour, the Pro 6 is also available in bold Black.
Whether you’re promoting your business, catching up on emails between meetings or watching a movie before bed, the Pro 6 is guaranteed to deliver the goods.
Surface Laptop 2 – for café working and evening entertaining
The Surface Laptop 2 has also been souped-up. The 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor will help you work faster and more effectively, whether you’re tackling a last-minute essay or starting up a side project.
And when it’s time to switch off from work, you can Skype friends and family or stream your favourite series on Netflix without having to plug in, thanks to the all-day, 14.5-hour battery life.
Not only does it perform well, it looks great too - coming in three rich tone-on-tone colours. Microsoft has added a new matte Black style to the three previous colour options – Platinum, Burgundy and Cobalt Blue. Whether you want to stand out from the crowd or blend in, there’s a laptop to match your style.
The Surface Laptop 2 packs a lot into a sleek, elegant package. Its slim, lightweight design makes it easy to slip into your bag, so you’ll have it at your side whenever – and wherever – you need it.
