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

With the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2's launch just a couple of days away, new rumours online are now suggesting that the notebook and the upcoming Surface Pro 6 might be absent of a particular port.

The new Surface Pro is named Surface Pro 6, and it comes with quad-core 8th Gen Intel processors. It comes in black and platinum and starts at $899. It will give you access to a digital buffet of Microsoft apps and services and costs $24.99 a month.

As mentioned above, the external design of the Surface Pro 6 remains largely unchanged thanks to the trademark hinge and aluminum casing. Under the hood, Microsoft has opted for an 8th generation Intel Core processor with up to 8GB RAM. Notably, there will be no 4GB RAM variant in the new lineup, as per the report. Just like the Surface Pro 6, the Surface Laptop doesn't come with an USB-C port, which is a bit disappointing. Again from The Verge, "This year's refresh appears to be nearly entirely a spec update". Neither the Surface Laptop nor Surface Pro gets the USB Type-C port. The laptop will still have a 13.5-inch display, and Microsoft is still estimating 14.5 hours of battery life for nonstop video playback. Microsoft claims this has quieter typing than the previous device.

Microsoft says this version features 50 percent more graphics performance, on top of being the 'fastest Surface device ever made'. Much of Microsoft's improvements went toward the display, which is now 38 percent brighter and has 22 percent more contrast. These days, it's a true laptop alternative, and as you'd expect, the Surface Pro 6 is the most powerful version yet. You also get a 2 terabyte solid state drive. (Apple allows such an integration for its iMessage service.) You can also integrate a To-Do list with Outlook.com, and drag an item into an open slot on your calendar to block time to finish it. Surface Headphones offer a smarter way to listen, with spectacular rich audio and hands-free calling. This 2-in-1 format is aimed at people like doctors, pilots and students who need tablets for note-taking or reading, but a laptop for full functionality.

They pack adjustable noise cancellation, automatic pause and play, which pauses the video a user is watching when they take the headphones off. "Cortana, a hands-free digital assistant, is built in to offer you proactive guidance, read you emails, or kick off your conference call".
