Should you buy the black Surface Pro 6?
What other colors does the Surface Pro 6 come in?
The Surface Pro 6 is available in either traditional platinum or new black colors. The finish covers the entire back of the device, including the kickstand. The black color matches the black bezel, creating a uniform color that's quite appealing.
One perk the Surface Pro 6 comes with is the ability to choose any color Type Cover you want. Type Covers are available in platinum, black, burgundy, and cobalt blue colors. They're sold separately, so if you'd like to mix up the color — I think black and burgundy look particularly nice together — the choice is yours.
If you plan on adding a Surface Pen into the mix, they can also be had in the same color options to either match or offset whatever colors you choose for the Surface Pro 6 and Type Cover.
The Surface Pro 6 has mostly the same features and hardware no matter the color
The color you choose for your Surface Pro 6 is just that: a color. Whether platinum or black, you're getting the same ports, including USB-A 3.0, Mini DisplayPort, Surface Connect, and a MicroSD card reader, same 8th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processor (CPU) options, up to 16 GB of RAM, and up to a 1 TB SSD. The only difference here is that black models aren't available with a 128GB SSD, meaning they start at a slightly higher price.
All models have a 12.3-inch touch display with 2,736 x 1,824 resolution and 3:2 aspect ratio, and you'll get all-day battery life.
Grab the black Surface Pro 6 for a change
The Surface Pro 6 is a mobile device, and the black finish is sure to turn heads when you take it out with you. You get the mostly same hardware and features no matter the color, and you can add extra style with an alternate-color Type Cover and Surface Pen.
