Despite being different types of convertible PCs, there are several similarities between the Surface Pro 6 and the Latitude 7400 2-in-1. Both are made of metal — the Surface Pro 6 is magnesium while the Latitude is aluminum — and will easily slip into a backpack or purse. The Surface might be the smaller of the hybrids, but the Latitude 7400 has slimmer bezels. The other thing we need to talk about is aesthetics. These are two very pretty products, but I have to give the nod to the Surface Pro 6, if only for its black color scheme, which makes the silver/gray Latitude look somewhat generic. Not to say that the Latitude 7400 2-in-1 isn't a looker; chrome trim around the touchpad and diamond-cut edges are welcome reminders that this is a premium machine. There are pros and cons to each form factor. The Latitude 7400 2-in-1 has a more rigid base, which makes it more comfortable to use on your lap than the Surface. However, the Surface Pro 6 can be used as a true discrete tablet, while the Latitude 7400 2-in-1 can only hide its thick, cumbersome keyboard. The 12.3-inch Surface Pro 6 (11.5 x 7.9 x 0.3 inches, 2.4 pounds) is also considerably lighter and more compact and than the 14-inch Latitude 7400 2-in-1 (12.6 x 7.9 x 0.6 inches, 3 pounds), even with the fabric Type Cover attached.
Screen protectors are incredibly important tools to have because they, as the name suggests, keep your device's display safe from scratches, smudges, and other forms of damage that can occur when your laptop is in a bag with other objects or when you're attempting to wipe something off of the screen. Without them, there's a good chance that you could ruin the display of the laptop you've spent tons of money on, and nobody wants that. There are two kinds of screen protectors available: plastic and tempered glass. Plastic ones are cheaper, are prone to scratching themselves, and don't cover the entire screen. Tempered glass protectors are extremely scratch resistant and are capable of fully covering your display, but they cost a little more. In general, we recommend using tempered glass over plastic, though both are better than having a naked screen. The rest of this article suggests our favorite Surface Book and Surface Book 2 screen protectors, so if you don't have that type of laptop, make sure to look up what the top picks are for your device. Because just about every laptop has a slightly different display, you'll need to make sure that you buy the right protector for your notebook PC. A good place to start is by searching Amazon for the name of your PC and "screen protector." MEGOO and Spigen are brands we trust. One of the best tempered glass screen protectors available for the Surface Book and Surface Book 2 is the MEGOO screen protector. It uses a special type of adhesive glue that effectively pushes air bubbles out during installation, and the tempered glass is the 9H hardness variety, which is the best in the business for protection. In addition, the protector has cutouts for the camera, speakers, and microphone on your Surface Book device. Lastly, the MEGOO screen protector is fitted with oleophobic coating, which heavily reduces the smudging effect your skin's oil can cause.
