    Surface Pro 4 vs. Macbook

    As the new musical ad declares, Macs are as useful as a hat for your cat. Is it true? Both have keyboards and SSDs for storage, both have touch screen…. Oops! Wait-wait-wait, Macbooks don’t have touch screens? Really? Oh, boy, we’re well into the second decade of the 21st century, for crying out loud! Yes, sad but true. Macbooks are only rumored to get touch screens in the future.

    How about stylus? No chance. You can write and draw with a stylus only if you’re a happy owner of Surface Pro 4. Just rip away the keyboard if you choose to use Surface Pro 4 as a tablet and when you’re bored of it, glue it back. Yes, it has magnets. It’s just that simple.

    Windows Surface Pro 4 sports faster Intel Skylake CPU as well. It’s 50% faster than that in Macbooks. Apple’s Intel Core m7 against Microsoft’s Intel Core i5, a mobile chip against the desktop level chip. With a Surface Pro 4 you’ve got a portable PC, compact enough to fit into a bag. With or without the keyboard, remember.

    And the last but not the least argument. Windows OS. The options for software is literally limitless, and most of it has shareware versions. Plus, cloud Office and OneDrive cloud storage hit the sweet spot for working. Really, who needs laptops?
