Apple MacBook Pro vs Microsoft Surface Book: Which is better?

CBR puts the new MacBook Pro and SurfaceBook Pro models head-to-head.

By Alexander Sword

Apple and Microsoft unveiled flagship PC devices within days of each other, the Surface Book with Performance Base and the new 15 inch version of the MacBook Pro. The two devices both make a play for the premium market, but how do they compare on key metrics such as cost and specifications?

CBR puts the two devices head-to-head. (The review will compare the similarly priced models).


1. Cost

Cost is unlikely to be the deciding factor here as they are both priced at the high end of the market.

dollarThe 15 inch version of the new MacBook will cost $2,399 in the US and £2,349 in the UK. The 13 inch version of the new MacBook is considerably cheaper, costing $1,799 in the US and £1,749 in the UK.

Microsoft’s device is the same, clocking in at between $2399 and $3,299 for the highest specification model.
