Microsoft Surface Book Vs. MacBook Pro and iPad Pro [Features Comparison]


Microsoft unveiled its all-new high performance Surface Book laptop yesterday, that also has a detachable screen for use as a tablet. Today, the folks over at The Verge have put up a comprehensive feature chart, that compares Micrsoft’s new 13.5” laptop with the MacBook Pro, iPad Pro, MacBook Air, Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 4 devices.


As the source points out, it’s a bit weird comparing all these products on specs alone, because the way that you use them is really different. Also, these devices are advertised on an “evolving continuum”, which means there’s no clear place that tablets end and laptops start.

Nonetheless, the above table gives you enough details of what Microsoft and Apple are offering, though specs tell only half the story.

    Not sure if you guys have mentioned this but the iPad pro will also work as a Cintiq alternative with an app called Astropad.

    Since MS is shipping Intel Skylake chips (6th Gen) in these machines it makes me very excited as to what Apple will bring on their notebook re-designs.
