The Eve V has extra ports, upgraded accessories and a modest price tag compared to the Surface Pro 6 with the same type of accessories.
You get more ways to connect to your accessories with the Eve V. This Windows 2-in-1 has 2 USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type-C port, a headset jack and a media card reader. A Thunderbolt 3 port lets you transfer files to and from a hard drive much faster than you can with the USB 3.0 port on the Surface Pro 6. You get a fingerprint reader instead of a Windows Hello camera for signing in without a password.
Not only does an Eve V come with a keyboard cover, you can skip buying a second keyboard for your desk. The included keyboard has a battery and Bluetooth technology. You can leave it docked to the Windows 2-in-1 or detach and still control the device from across the room.
Whichever Eve V you decide to buy, know that you're getting a better deal than if you purchased a Surface Pro 6. The Eve V i5 has 8GB of RAM, an Intel Core i5 processor and 256GB of storage for $1,099. This includes a Type Cover alternative and a Surface Pen Alternative, which would run you about $220 from Microsoft. Models come with up to an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. All this power doesn't heavily impact battery life. The Eve V lasts for 10 hours of video.
Even with the lower price and more connectivity, this Surface Pro alternative doesn't deviate much from Surface Pro 6's design. It's an all aluminum tablet with a dark black paint job. Gentle curves run along its edges and a kickstand folds out when you're ready to get work done. Its 2,880 x 1,920 12.3-inch display detects 1,024 different levels of pressure from the included digital pen.
