Microsoft may be a late player in the PC hardware game, but its dedication and expertise have easily earned it a top spot in our best laptop brands list. Its diverse family of Surface devices offers some of the best Windows hardware on the market, ranging from the ultra-portable 2-in-1s to the best laptops overall.

Tablet computers offer an unmatched level of mobility coupled with the functionalities of multiple devices and it shows in Microsoft’s current crop of Surface 2-in-1s.

Microsoft Surface Pro 6 — $733 ($466 off)

The Surface Pro 6 was previously hailed as the best Windows tablet on our website. It runs a full version of Windows 10 Home, providing you with access to any type of specialized software. Its capabilities go beyond what a normal tablet can offer, especially when paired with accessories like the Type Cover, Surface Arc mouse, or the Surface Pen. All these make the Pro 6 a solid laptop replacement.

When it comes to overall productivity and performance, the Surface tablet is a real beast. Inside is an eighth-generation Intel Core i5 processor which enables faster launching of apps and fluid switching between open tasks. Even multitasking is a delight, thanks to the additional boost offered by the 8GB of RAM. Also worth noting is its excellent battery life. Our reviewer put it to the test and concluded that’s it’s a match with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. You can use it for a full day of work and it will still have enough charge left for tablet or casual use.

Microsoft also gave the Surface Pro 6 spectacular visuals. Its 12.3-inch screen actually flaunts one of the best pixel resolutions in the category and is on par with premium brands like the Apple MacBook, Dell XPS, and Lenovo ThinkPad. Expect that no matter the content, this tablet will display them all with rich, colorful, and bright details complete with a stunning contrast that ensures brighter whites and deeper blacks. Further upscaling the multimedia consumption are dual front-facing speakers that can fill a room with music and deliver movie sounds with great clarity.

Light enough for on-the-go usage and powerful enough to handle your daily computing, you can never go wrong with the Microsoft Surface Pro 6. The 256GB SSD variant is up for grabs for only $733 at the moment, leaving you with a whopping savings of $466.
