Amazon Prime Day is fast approaching on July 15 and 16, bringing with it a deluge of deals on laptops, tablets, smartphones, and lots of other enticing items. Prime Day 2019 may still be a few weeks away, but that hasn’t stopped Amazon from dropping prices on big-name brands in anticipation of the big day(s). Now, Amazon has dropped the price of the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 with type cover to just $1,000, for a nearly $300 discount. Begin your Prime Day prep by crossing this deeply discounted Surface Pro 6 off your shopping list early.
These days, 2-in-1 laptops are among the most popular mobile products, and Microsoft makes some of the best in the business, with its Surface Pro 6 being an especially outstanding option.
The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is our favorite 2-in-1 laptop/tablet hybrid here at Digital Trends due to its compact design, processing power, and high-performance features. One gripe we did have concerned the Surface Pro 6’s ability as a stand-alone tablet, but with the sturdy keyboard of the Surface type cover included in this Amazon deal, you won’t need to worry about that. This tenacious 2-in-1 boasts a sleek design, with a 12.3-inch, 2736 x 1824 PixelSense 10-point toucsscreen, and rear- and front-facing cameras measuring 8.0 and 5.0 megapixels, respectively. Integrated microphones and stereo speakers provide a laptop-like audio experience in a tablet-sized package.
On the inside, the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is powered by the venerable 8th Gen Intel Quad Core processors, with Windows 10 as its operating system, offering a higher level of flexibility than its Apple or Android counterparts. With 8GB of RAM and a 128GB solid state drive, you get all the storage and performance users have come to expect from Microsoft’s Surface line of laptops and tablets. The four-cell lithium ion battery enables 13.5 hours per charge, so the perfectly portable Surface Pro 6 is unlikely to power down on you when you’re on the go.
2-in-1 laptops and tablets may still not be for everyone, but products like the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 are increasingly making believers out of many people. Now priced at $1,000 on Amazon, you might just find yourself not wanting to wait for Prime Day, and cashing in on this deal now.
