Will the Surface Book Be Microsoft’s “MacBook Killer?” [Video]

b2ap3_thumbnail_the_surface_book_400One of the most storied competitions in the technology industry comes from Apple vs Microsoft. For the past 35 years, they went back and forth by offering consumers their own twist on similar technologies. The latest chapter in this story comes from Microsoft’s new Surface Book, which aims to compete directly with Apple’s MacBook Pro.

In case you’re unfamiliar with Apple vs Microsoft, check out this informative video by LSPO highlighting a visual history of each company’s operating systems by comparing them side by side, dating all the back to 1978!

Here’s a rundown of the Surface Book’s specs:

13.5-inch screen with a resolution of 3000 by 2000 pixels
Intel Core i5 or i7 processor
8 GB or 16 GB of RAM
128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, or 1 TB available hard drives
These are some impressive specs that should satisfy the needs of any high-end user, and if we can learn anything from history, it’s that we won’t have to wait too long for Apple to answer back with a new piece of impressive hardware of their own. One thing we know for sure is that when two tech giants compete, more great products hit the market and the consumer comes out on top!
