    Skins from

    With the new 8th gen processors from Intel, the new Surface Pro 6 has a BIG jump in processing capabilies but there are still some issues with the product category. The new black color is beautiful to see but PROTECT THAT THING. It shows scratches very easily!

    The black finish is REALLY nice to look at, but a lot of the device remains the same. Is the new processor enough for you to upgrade?

      A lot of nothing...Dave perhaps test the device give the info users cant see them self.. intead of just reading press materiel, like what ports it got etc.. most viewers can do themself.. but getting to these important facts that vendors won't inform, like what kind of panel is it... how does it perform' how bright is it, does it work good outdors.. is it coloraccurate,
      what kind of deadzones does the trackpad operate with.. all these secondary infos a buyer wont be able to find on vendor sites. .

      Pfft. Total horseshit as usual. Maybe instead of "60% faster" you meant "60% faster in optimal 4-threaded multi-tasking conditions". At least that was a general case, not a single-test benchmark.

      You were showing so much of your face, I actually had to click another video just to see what the UI looks like even.

      Anyone who have tried or owned this surface pro, is it good enough for a university student? I also like to draw as a hobby. Is it good enough for note taking and drawing?

        a chemical engineering undergrad student here, been using a surface pro 6 base model for four months. bought it 2nd hand (about 7 months old) at about 630$ (obviously way cheaper now). Battery life is acceptable when using at 60-70% brightness, gets you about 6 hours which is enough for me (i plug it in whenever i can and charges real quick tbh). I use a lot of simulation softwares which are cpu based like MATLAB, python IDEs, molecular simulations stuff, engineering drawing softwares like AutoCAD, Solidworks and although it's not as fast as my high end i7 desktop it gets the job done satisfactorily! gpu based applications surely will underperform. I don't own a surface pen rnw but the note-taking experience is pretty neat, drawing is good, tbh apple pencil on the ipad pros are wayyy better for drawing, sketching.
        Absolutely pleasing experience with media consumption, reading pdfs, documenting- a uni students jackpot!
        I highly recommend it man. a cheaper surface pro 6 will get you going even though you can opt for a sp 7.

                  Which surface product would you recommend for a part-time instructor? Need something small, light weight, use will be for teaching multiple classes.

                    Dave how's the battery life.
                    A lot of Indian youtubers are saying that it really sucks in battery life.
                    How many hours of battery life should I expect from this ?
                    I'm seriously considering this as my portable device.

                        USB Type A > USB type C

                        If not simply just for convenience sake, sure usb c charging is good but for a universal port, more things use usb A

                                                                              • Good Christian Boy

                                                                                I'd say this would be perfect for that, but if you have a bigger budget, I would wait until the surface pro 7 comes out in the next 3-4 months possibly less, should be a decent upgrade from this one.
