    Macbook is a joke to Surface Book

  2. Bryson Rose says:

    You said that the dock has usb C on it but I don't think it does?

  3. Sebastian Belulok says:

    Can you make a comparison between Apple Macbook Pro (2017) and Microsoft Surface Book 2 (2017)

  4. Franku Doge says:

    People fight in the comments despite not being able to afford either if these.

  5. Franku Doge says:

    The surface book is a 13inch device though.

    Pretty biased review. One sided.

    Hi Lisa, great comparison! I always watch your reviews as they are the best on youtube. Since both the surface book and macbook pro are very expensive, I want to know whether you are aware of any common hardware faults or issues with them. I had a bad experience with the 2013 macbook pro 15" logic board failing due to manufacturing fault in that model and it cost me a lot. Also, will the surface book support all the improvements with the new surface pen? Please answer if you have the time. Thank you!

    I have to say there are a few takeaways, first and foremost, DO NOT tie to one company, if you do, you are just gonna be missing out on a lot of things, personally, I think iPhone is really good for mobile device, but when it comes to professional software, Microsoft is hands down the best company at making it, (MacBook Pro is good, but where the hell is my touchscreen, it just feels backward giving the fact that MacBook Pro still doesn't have the touchscreen.I mean what do I do if I want a professional drawing device that runs Photoshop.) And second of all, take your time, there are doomed to be greater, bigger things coming along the way in the near future, like maybe iPad can run MacOS, or Microsoft surface Pro has even more solid design while it retains the touch screen and 2-in-1 feature in the suture. So whoever it is, just be comfortable with whatever device you have right now, as long as your devices doesn't make your life harder, because nothing is perfect, and we all just have to wait.

    Good vid but a little long.

    switched from MacBook to MS Surface Book. They're both excellent products with pros and cons. Superior build quality for apple where as functionality for MS. so its a hit and a miss for some for both brands and a bang for the buck for some at the same time… so lets not fight over what's better guys….

  11. Meowsome Minerva says:

    sooo happy i found this video. I was going to buy the macbook and i was just 'meh' about it, but after seeing this I'm definitely going for microsoft…

    How does the Surface Book perform in After Effects and Premiere Pro under heavy loads? Does it lag or keep up?

  13. Чингис Батыргалиев says:

    Thanks for reviews, can you please compare macbook 15 (2016) and dell xps 15 (9560), i very want you compare;)
    Thank you very much;)

  14. Atticus says:

    Shouldn't you compare the 13" macbook pro to the Surfacebook since they both have simmilar size screens and dual core processors?

  15. Deforma Cinnabar says:

    hugh mungus what hugh mungus what

  16. Sunrise King says:

    I love apple but their laptops arent that great. Surface book has a rear camera, a touch screen and a surface pen, while macbook has touch bar lol. Someone really should replace Tim Cook, he's boring.

  17. Abdelkarim Kamal says:

    Surface book has the momentum

  18. The Last Guy says:

    Which one should i get?? I own apple products do i get any benefits for them if i buy a macbook?
