The MacBook Pro has been at the forefront of laptop style for generations, helping to redefine what a premium laptop looks and feels like.
It has a new black paint job which helps set it apart from the silver of so many of its contemporaries, but it’s no thinner, trimmer, or lighter than its predecessors.
While the Surface Pro 6 might hold on to some style-trappings of the past, its inputs are a bit more pleasing.
Its Type Cover ($130-$160 extra depending on color choice) is a fantastic accessory that is a must-have if you plan to do any real typing.
Sticky and broken keys are common, and the typing experience is far from our favorite, with stiff, overly shallow keys that don’t give you the tactile feedback for a comfortable and efficient typing experience.
As for ports, Apple’s device has just two Thunderbolt 3 ports and a headphone jack on the 13-inch version, meaning you’re going to need adapters for a wide range of external devices.
