Thoughtful and revealing contrast between Microsoft’s highly touted Surface Book and Apple’s seemingly lame MacBook Pro by Kate MacKenzie:
In summary, the Surface Book and MacBook Pro are similarly priced with similar performance (they’re screaming fast), but have very different approaches to their basic customer; the touchscreen being the most glaring difference. With similar specifications– at least, as close as you can get– they are priced nearly the same for comparable hardware.
Which brings up the obvious question?
So, why is it that Microsoft gets nearly uniform kudos for the Surface Book while Apple has been castigated recently for the new MacBook Pro line?
