#MacBookPro #SurfaceBook2 – MacBook Pro 2016 vs Surface Book 2 Review: Can Microsoft Challenge Apple This Time? : Apple and Microsoft recently announced their latest versions for notebook, namely the Apple MacBook Pro 2016 and the Microsoft Surface Book i7, giving consumers a real big choice on how to interact with these devices.
However, reports are emerging that a new Surface Book 2 is ready for launch in early 2017. With the information available, we thought of putting the two notebooks head to head, comparing the designs, the build quality, the features and most importantly the tech specs.
Apple introduced the MacBook 2016 with new 13 and 15 inch variants. The 13-inch variants have two models, one basic entry model which has function keys and the other one similar to 15-inch variant has the new Touch Bar and Touch ID features.
Microsoft Surface Book 2 is expected to be launched with just one variant. As per Tech Radar, the Surface, Book 2 should have Windows 10 as operating system whereas all the new MacBook Pros runs MacOS Sierra.
From the rumors, it seems like the Surface Book 2 will be taller, wider, denser, and still sleeker than the 13-inch variant of Apple MacBook Pros. However, the same cannot be assured when compared with 15-inch new MacBook Pro.
Similar to the Surface i7 ,the upcoming Surface Book would have better screen resolution than any of the Apple MacBook variants. It is very much possible that the Microsoft Surface Book 2 could have better battery life than the Apple’s latest MacBook Pros.
