Back to uni means new classes, new mates and, if you’re a savvy scholar, a new Microsoft Surface Pro 6 for students. Designed to be slim and light enough to haul around all day, but fast and powerful enough to meet your learning needs, the Surface Pro is destined to be a student’s new best friend.

What is Surface Pro?

The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is a high-end laptop you can use your way to suit your style. The sleek and ultra-lightweight design gives you the versatility of a studio and tablet on a single machine.

Put it in laptop mode with a built-in kickstand and Surface Keyboard for taking notes and typing up info with a full laptop experience. Take the kickstand down a notch to transform the Surface Pro 6 into studio mode, giving you a 15-degree drawing and writing angle with the Surface Pen.

Close the kickstand entirely while removing or folding your type cover, and you suddenly have a stand-along Intel tablet ready for whatever action you want to give it
