Price & Bottom Line

A direct comparison on prices between the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 and new Apple iPad Pro is tough for a few reasons—particularly, the different screen sizes and storage configurations. The cheapest tablet in our comparison is the 11-inch iPad Pro, which starts at $799. The Surface Pro 6 starts at $899. However, that pricing for the Surface Pro 6 gets you twice the storage (128 GB) and a much larger display (12.3 inches versus 11 inches).

For the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, you'll need to shell out $999—$100 more than the starting point of the Surface Pro 6—and that will still get you just half the storage on the Surface Pro 6. But of course, the display is bigger on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro than on the Surface Pro 6. So, trade-offs abound. Ultimately, though, Microsoft's Surface Pro 6 does seem to be a slightly better value for the money when you also factor in the longer battery life, greater storage and the inclusion of a headphone jack and touchpad on the keyboard.
