As many expected, Microsoft this week unveiled the Surface Pro 6, a modest refresh that keeps the same aesthetics as the previous Surface Pro, but adds quite a bit of extra horsepower.

The biggest change here is that Microsoft has upgraded the processor to Intel's 8th Gen chips. It's a significant upgrade that pushes the Surface Pro 6 to be up to 65 percent faster than its predecessor, Microsoft says. Also new? That handsome matte black color option.
