- Answer Home. Why? To charge you another $100 more for Pro which the Surface has always came with. Same idea as the stylus, that's now extra also. Before long, $100 extra for the power button. That's a LOT of extra income for MS from the working world. If it doesn't come with Pro Windows it should be called Surface Home or Surface Play, not Surface Pro. Pro should also have a dGPU (discrete graphics processing unit) for "pro"fessional work such as 3ds max, maya, fusion 360, solidworks, Adobe illustrator, photoshop etc. You'll have to deal with non pro integrated 620 gpu or get a different device. Pro should be 14" 15" display max... but not with the bulky keyboard as the Surface Book 2, but the ultra thin detachable keyboard like the current just sized up accordingly with numpad and keep the kickstand also and include the stylus as before... but longer and works better than the Apple Pencil. And last and not least.... drumroll.... usb-c!!!!! My goodness? Now that's a Surface "Pro"... with Windows 10 "Pro" (no cloud OS!) of course! : /

- Answer Also, there is supposedly a BUSINESS option with Windows 10 "PRO" with Core i5-8350U quad-core. The 8350U would be the MUCH better choice than the the 8250U as it benchmarks are on par almost with the i7 8650U. So if your looking for better CPU performance and possibly better battery life and a lot less money than a i7, then the i5-8350 may be for you. But might as well get a i7 8650U if you need a bit more cpu power than the typical Office suite only user. I.e. graphics such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, CorelDraw etc. The integrated 620 gpu won't get you blazing fast update rates with 3d software such as 3dsmax, maya, fusion 360, solidworks, etc, but it may get you by in a pinch or for simpler work since no discrete gpu such as gtx 1050, 1060, 1070 etc. You'd need Surface Book 2 for that. (Or wait for newer models). Overall, the better the cpu, the better off you'll be even with substandard 620 iGPU if not your daily driver.
QuestionSo EXACTLY which model of the Intel Core 8th Gen i7 does this come with? Microsoft also conveniently left this important information off at presale time. An i7-8550U maybe? 1.8 gigahertz BASE processor speed? Windows 10 Home? NO PRO NOW?! plus $100!

- Answer Surface Pro 6 does not offer LTE, however you might be interested in the fifth generation of Surface Pro with LTE at Best Buy: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/microsoft-surface-pro-lte-advanced-unlocked-12-3-touch-screen-intel-core-i5-8gb-memory-256gb-ssd-fifth-generation-silver/6216320.p?skuId=6216320.
- Answer We know caring for your Surface is important. By design, the Alcantara material used on the Surface Signature Type Cover resists spills and absorption. We recommend cleaning with a soft lint brush to restore luster of the fabric.
- Answer While Surface Pro 6 does not have LTE capabilities, Surface Pro (5th generation) does. You can check out Surface Pro here: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/microsoft-surface-pro-lte-advanced-unlocked-12-3-touch-screen-intel-core-i5-8gb-memory-256gb-ssd-fifth-generation-silver/6216320.p?skuId=6216320.

- Answer yes, using a display port to hdmi adaptor
- Answer I think the pen can be used with an app that you need to or want to write with.
- Answer While the size and weight are going to be the same and the keypad cover is the same, inside the Pro 6 has upgraded cpu, faster ram and upgraded graphics. This is a huge step forward from the surface pro.
