Techie Tuesday: We compare Microsoft’s Surface Book and the Apple iPad Pro

This Techie Tuesday, we’re excited to compare and contrast the Microsoft Surface Book and the Apple iPad Pro!

surface-ipadproThe iPad Pro isn’t quite a laptop and the Surface Book isn’t quite a tablet, but there’s still enough overlap there to make the two potential rivals. Let’s compare Microsoft’s and Apple’s latest.

Primary mode :
The Surface Book is a laptop with a slide-off screen that you can use in short bursts as a huge tablet (or “Clipboard”).

The iPad Pro is a huge tablet that you can attach a keyboard accessory (sold separately) to, in order to turn it into a faux laptop.

Sizes are pretty close, with the Surface Book measuring 5 percent taller and 2 percent wider.

The Surface Book is much thicker, but keep in mind that this measurement includes its screen folded over on top of its keyboard. The iPad’s thickness is for the tablet only.

In Clipboard mode (screen only), we measured our Surface Book review unit at 7.14 mm thick – or just 3 percent thicker than the iPad Pro.  read more
