Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 now up for preorder on Amazon

If Amazon is your go-to retailer for all things tech, Microsoft's latest Surface devices are now up for preorder there. The Surface Pro 6 is available starting at $899, while the Surface Laptop 2 is only currently available from Amazon in configurations starting at $1,600.

Both new devices sport some significant speed boosts over their predecessors, with the Surface Pro 6 coming in at up to 65 percent faster, while the Surface Laptop 2 boasts up to 85 percent better performance. The other big change is the inclusion of a new matte black color option for both, though it's worth noting Amazon doesn't have that option available for order just yet.

Currently, there are more configurations and colors available for Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 at the Microsoft Store and Best Buy, but it's never a bad thing to have more retailers on board. No matter who you go with, Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 are expected to start shipping out to buyers on October 16.

If you're still on the fence, be sure to check out our hands-on previews with both the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 as well.
