Over the weekend, Microsoft released a new Surface Pro 7 with one of its most common themes (behind the click hinges): comparing it to Apple products. Of course, the comparison itself isn’t a surprise as the alternative is to compare it to Microsoft’s partner products, but this is the first to compare the Surface to Apple’s new ARM-powered MacBook Pro.
The first thing the video host says after announcing the two devices is “The Surface comes with a pen”, something that is absolutely untrue. Of course, though, the form factor is something Microsoft likes to boast about on MacBooks, with the touchscreen, pen support (although the Surface Pen is sold separately), and even the detachable keyboard. The presenter expressed disappointment at being stuck with “what you have” in Apple’s MacBook Pro.
So, the announcement morphed into a segment about power and how the Surface Pro 7 can run your games. Obviously, the Surface Pro 7+ is much better suited for gaming with its Iris Xe graphics, but for some reason, that’s limited to business. This segment was also geared towards app compatibility, the biggest problem facing Apple’s M1 processor or any new architecture for that matter. The bottom line is that Windows PCs with Intel processors simply run the apps you want.
And the last thing Microsoft pointed out was the price. While it wasn’t true that the Surface Pro 7 comes with a pen, the company did show prices that include the tablet, keyboard, and pen.
You’ll notice that the announcement doesn’t mention Microsoft’s ARM-based PC, the Surface Pro X. The main reason would be that Microsoft simply wouldn’t have much to brag about. App compatibility is even more of an issue with Windows on ARM than Apple’s M1 processor, and what’s more, the Surface Pro X is more expensive than the Surface Pro 7.
