Apple MacBook users are switching to Microsoft laptops “more than ever before”

The new MacBook Pro has caused “more people than ever before” to switch from the Apple notebook to the Microsoft Surface, according to a post on the Windows blog.

“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.
