When I bought a Surface Laptop over a year ago, I did so largely because I had little faith in the Surface Pro line. I wasn't sure the Type Cover was sturdy, having experienced the first generation. The premium on the hardware I'd need seemed , and Windows doesn't have a stellar reputation as a tablet OS.
But over the last week, I've been able to try out a Surface Pro 6 out of sheer good fortune. And after working all of PAX, typing on couches, blow up mattresses and a transpacific light later, I've done a complete 180 on the device.
