The competition between Microsoft Surface Book 2 and MacBook Pro 2016 will surely be stiff, rumors have claimed.
As consumers continue to wait for the arrival of the newest laptop from Microsoft and Apple, it can never be avoided that despite the absence of official announcements about their anticipated specs and features, they have still been pitted against each other. Which of them could be the better option?
The latest update suggested that the upcoming Microsoft Surface Book 2 may win the battle against MacBook Pro 2016 as the company is extra keen about improving it further. According to ZDNet, it is Microsoft’s desire to produce a product that boasts of a Redstone 2 and runs on Kaby Lake processor.
Aside from these powerful specs, it is likewise expected that the upcoming laptop from Microsoft would already ditch the hinge gap, something that consumers had complained about in the past.
Express UK explained that with the gap, the device does not seal completely, and “as a result, the chiclet keyboard and display get dirtier than rival devices as you thrown the laptop in-and-out of your backpack.”
However, with the Microsoft Surface Book 2, which is expected to be the biggest competitor of MacBook Pro 2016, the laptop’s “biggest problem” will finally be addressed already. While the company is reportedly committed to bring about enhancements in the appearance of the new unit, it has also expressed commitment that it will be more powerful as well.
Considering this, the device would be available not until the Spring of 2017.
Meanwhile, Bloomberg revealed that the new laptop from Apple, the MacBook Pro 2016, will not likely be announced on Sept. 7, during an event where the next-gen iPhone will be introduced. With the limited updates available right now, it is still vague somehow to compare the Surface Book 2 and MacBook Pro 2016 side by side.
