Day 30: Surface Book 2 - Am I missing my MacBook Pro? A Midpoint Evaluation

https://twitter.com/LaptopRetrospe1 https://curiouscat.me/LaptopRetrospective In this midpoint evaluation, I take a look at what I miss or a comparison between the two computers that have handled my work flow over the month. I've been using a MacBook Pro Retina since 2012 for my work and as you know, just recently bought this SurfaceBook 2. This video will begin to explore the question: What have I missed from using my Macbook, if anything? The older MBP is a great machine even by today's standards, it still gets use once a week by the way! If you have questions about making the switch, the SurfaceBook 2 in general or others, please post your questions and comments below and I will do my best to answer them. Thank you all for showing your support and please consider subscribing.

A Diehard Mac User Switched To Windows — Here's What They Thought

The Mac used to have numerous advantages over the PC, but with Windows 10 the PC has now closed the gap. These days buying a PC gives you many more options compared to the Mac, which continues to stagnate. Business Insider's senior tech correspondent, Steve Kovach, switches his Mac for a PC to see what Windows 10 really has to offer. Tech Insider tells you all you need to know about tech: gadgets, how-to's, gaming, science, digital culture, and more.

I hated PCs. They came loaded with a bunch of software that slowed down my machine, and they caught viruses way too easily. Ad: Last year there were 114 thousand known viruses for PCs. PCs, but not Macs. Steve: Then I discovered the Mac. And it had everything the PC didn't. But lately, I've grown frustrated with the Mac lineup. And while Apple has let its Mac lineup stagnate, Windows 10 computers have gotten really good. So I decided to make the switch back for a few days and tested Huawei's new MateBook X Pro. Which runs Windows 10 and starts at about $1200. Some have called it the best laptop you can buy. And guess what, Windows is actually really great. And I may even like it better than my Mac. Windows 8 tried to be two operating systems in one. One for desktop and one for mobile. And it failed at both. It even got rid of Windows' iconic Start menu. But Windows 10 reversed a lot of those mistakes. The Start menu's back and it works great on the desktop. Windows 10 comes with Cortana. The Microsoft Digital Assistant. It can dig through files on your computer and even search the web. It's almost as good as Google Search. Windows 10 also has a lot more hardware options. You only have a few options when it comes to the Mac and they all come with terrible trade-offs. But the Windows 10 hardware ecosystem has something for everyone. 2-in-1's, convertibles, tablets, regular laptops, and everything in between. It let's you work the way you want to work. Windows 10 machines make the MacBook lineup look pretty outdated. Then there's touch, which I think is the key advantage to Windows 10. Many, if not, most Windows 10 PCs have built-in touch screen controls. Apple has refused to put touch screens on its Macs, even though people love to use them. Next, there's price. Windows 10 computers range from a couple hundred to a few thousand bucks. You're always gonna find something within your price range. But regardless of which Mac you choose, you can always expect to spend at least a thousand bucks. The MateBook X Pro I've been testing, is the perfect example of everything Windows 10 does right. This thing has it all. There's a gorgeous touchscreen with minimal bezels. And unlike MacBooks, it doesn't compromise on ports. There's the new USB-C and the classic standard USB. So you don't have to worry about buying dongles to plug in all your accessories. Then there's the beautiful design, clever hidden webcam, fingerprint sensor, all in a tight package. It looks great. If you had told me five years ago, that a Windows laptop would have all of these features, I never would've believed you. So what if you also want to make the switch. It's actually pretty easy. Today, most programs store all their stuff in the cloud. So things like Slack and Gmail and your web browser's bookmarks all sync up, no matter what machine you're using. Of course, there are some drawbacks to Windows 10. Windows 10 tablets are pretty bad. The app selection isn't nearly as good as it is on the iPad and if you just want a tablet, you're better off with the iPad instead. It can also be tough to switch over if you're already using Apple services like iCloud, iMessage, and Notes. That data can be pretty hard to port over to a Windows PC. But overall, the Windows 10 ecosystem is superb. And at a time when the Mac isn't showing any sign of improvement, Windows 10 has never looked better. It's a tongue twister, the Mate- Producer: Remember when it was just IBM ThinkPad? Steve: Yeah really or just MacBook.

Microsoft Surface Book 2 review: The ultimate laptop improves in every way but one

An under-the-hood issue with the Surface Dock, a USB-C port, and the Surface Book 2 charger is the only flaw in Microsoft's new convertible tablet laptop. Microsoft's Surface Book 2 solves a big problem for Microsoft: how do you market the Surface Book as a performance notebook when it's two years out of date? As our review shows, by making it bigger, faster, and with longer battery life. In this video we cover all those aspects and more.

One of Apple's biggest competitors in the laptop space is arguably Microsoft, with its line of portable, productivity-focused Surface Book machines. Microsoft in November released its newest product, the Surface Book 2, a 2-in-1 PC that has quite a few selling points to entice Apple customers.

In our latest YouTube video, we took a look at the 15-inch Surface Book 2 and compared it to the 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro across a number of categories including build quality and design, key features, and overall usage experience for someone in the Apple ecosystem.
