5 Reasons Why The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 Is The Ultimate Lecture Companion
The laptop you need to get before uni starts.
Freshers is fast approaching, so if you’re looking for a new laptop before the academic year begins we’ve broken down some of the cool reasons why a Microsoft Surface Pro 6 will be your best friend through uni.
THE BATTERY LIFE
If you’re planning on using your laptop all day long throughout your lectures, then you’re in luck as it comes with up to 13.5 hours of battery life. This means you’ll never have to worry about it dying out mid seminar or carrying your charger around with you. Another advantage is you’ll never have to hunt for hours for a seat in the library with a plug socket either.
The keyboard is detachable meaning that you can turn your laptop into a tablet real quick. The stand on the back means it can be used hands free which is the perfect way to watch Netflix in between lectures. Adapting your Surface Pro 6 to suit your needs means that you can make it your own and really get the most out of it.
If you do a more creative degree, or you’re just a visual learner you can use the pen to draw and sketch ideas into your notes. This will not only make your notes easier for you to look back on but also means you can have your notes all in one place instead of carrying around different notepads and colourful pens. This feature is also great for adding 3D models, diagrams, and graphs to whatever it is you’re working on.
There’s nothing worse than having your bag weighed down with your heavy textbooks and laptops and having to transport them across campus. This laptop is super lightweight and weighs just 1.70lbs, meaning you’ll hardly notice you’re carrying it between lecture rooms.
IT HAS EVERYTHING BUILT IN
Windows 10 is preinstalled so you can get straight to writing up your lecture notes. As well as this there’s loads of great apps built in so you won’t have to spend hours setting up your laptop when you first get it. It even comes with its own personal assistant Cortana who will happily tell you the weather or a joke.
If you’re totally convinced to give it a go, students can grab 10% student discount off the Microsoft Surface range from Currys PC World as well as snapping up some other great uni essentials too.
