Microsoft Surface Book also has a 10-point multi-touch display. As this laptop comes packed with powerful specifications, Microsoft claims that it works two times faster than MacBook Pro. Time will tell how true Microsoft’s claims are, but if this laptop does not grab Apple’s share, we don’t know what will.

The best part about Surface Book is that it is a laptop as well as a tablet, and it is set to play both roles quite well. Apple users are in need of a better MacBook, and if Apple is not offering them what they are looking for, then they might as well go for a replacement. Compared to some of the MacBooks, Surface Book may not be the lightest laptop out there, but it wins with its hinge fold. Microsoft has proven that with just a few minor changes one can drastically transform gadgets.

Other features like Palm Lock technology and One Click to OneNote are also impressive. With palm lock, you can turn your Surface Book into a canvas without having to worry about the gadget going haywire at the slightest touch. You can easily rest your palm on the device. One click to OneNote allows you open a blank OneNote page by clicking with your Surface Pen.
