Microsoft has shared a new advertisement on YouTube titled Microsoft Surface Pro 7: The Better Choice, mocking Apple’s popular MacBook Pro laptop.
The new ad compares the MacBook Pro with Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7, mocking the MacBook Pro’s lack of support for either a touch screen or a pen.
It also highlights the detachable keyboard of the Surface as well as support for various bits of software including games that macOS doesn’t have.
Microsoft further takes a dig at the MacBook for not being a gaming device.
The Surface Pro, according to the ad, remains a much better gaming device than Apple MacBook Pro.
In the end, the price of the two products compared in US dollars.
MacBook Pro starts at $1,299 whereas the Surface Pro 7 starts at $890.
Comparing it to the prices in India, the 13-inch Intel-powered MacBook Pro with 512GB storage starts at Rs 1,74,900, and the M1-powered starts at Rs 1,22,900.
The US-based technology company previously compared the Surface Laptop 2 against the MacBook Air, stating that its notebook is better in performance and battery life.
Microsoft has long positioned its Surface devices as an ideal combination of both a tablet and computer experience.
