“Our trade-in programme for MacBooks was our best ever and the combination of excitement for the innovation of Surface coupled with the disappointment of the new MacBook Pro – especially among professionals – is leading more and more people to make the switch to Surface,” said Microsoft.
“It seems like a new review recommending Surface over MacBook comes out daily. This makes our team so proud, because it means we’re doing good work.”
Despite the new MacBook Pro 13-inch and 15-inch models featuring improved hardware and the much-discussed Touch Bar, there have been complaints about the devices.
This includes a 16GB RAM limit, lack of currently-supported ports (only Thunderbolt USB Type-C is present), and un-upgradeable SSD drives.
