Surface Pro 6: innovative union between tablet and pc
The Surface Pro 6 is one of the novelties introduced by Microsoft in Italy. Its design is in line with that of the entire range: it is minimalist, clean and innovative. It is characterized by an above-average speed. Thanks to the eighth generation Intel processors, the Pro 6 is 67% faster than the model of the previous series. At the same time, the battery is distinguished by an autonomy of 13.5 hours. To make this product even more innovative, we find the full-friction hinge that allows you to easily transform the laptop into a tablet and then switch to study mode. The 12.3-inch PixelSense display completes the work.
