    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?

      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.

      I would upgrade to it from my original Surface book, but unfortunately there's no USB-C port

      Ein Benchmark zwischen dem 2017er I7 mit dem Pro 6 I7 wäre interessant... angeblich soll es in der praxis nicht viel schneller sein... als Bsp: rendern von Videos oder dergleichen

    1:45 Wouldn't a magnetic USB-C defeat the purpose?
    You'd have to insert something into the port which would stop it being USB-C, would add an extra step to charging and would make it pointless

      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.

    The dock with the magnetic connector is better than having a USB C. That said, perhaps they could have put on in the dock, if their connector had enough throughput. Maybe it doesn’t. I have a MacBook 2017 with USB C and just recently bought an SSD that could really take advantage of it. That’s been over 2 years. If MS could squeeze one in on the next model, but keep the magnetic connector still that would be a win in my book.

    Difference between 2017 and SP 6 is Upgraded CPU(4 Cores), downgraded GPU in i7, with same GPU for rest models. I'm afraid to purchase another SP, after my SP4 got screen flickering and cant be replaced bcaz lost my receipt and it has been more than 3 years

    no one will buy external GPU just to play on surface pro 6
    it doesn't makes sense
    Dave needs to think about these things before doing a review
    he missed the practicality part

    Can someone please help me to decide which tablet should i buy

    1. Samsung galaxy tab S4
    2. Galaxy tab A
    3. Galaxy tab S5e
    4. Apple ipad pro 12.9
    5. new apple ipad mini
    6. New apple ipad air
    7. Microssoft surface go
    8. New Surface pro 6

    The tablet should have keyboard and pen with it. It should have expandable memory. It should have enough memory for video editing and photo editing softwares, for taking pictures , for daily use, for watching videos and movies, for listening music, for reading books, on which tablets can i work for more than 10 hours on multiple programs without worrying about tablet getting hanged and with which tablet i can work with external hard disk and pen drives and can be easily carried with us anywhere on any trip .

    Pardon my ignorance, but what's the advantage of having a USB C over a USB 3.1?? Most of the external harddrives and USB drives I have can run on USB 2.0 so i don't see how missing USB C might be a drawback for me.. Can anybody please enlighten me?? Thanks

      ElPistolero50 apparently a lot of youtubers think that TB3 is a necessity in every device because they have a use case for it. But from where i live, nobody even know what TB3 is and get the work done just well. And the thing about TB3 is that it’s only supportable by USB-C and not 2.0.
