Microsoft and Apple have been two names which have been rivals since quite a long time.
It has been a rivalry which has been documented for over 40 years, and these two are always at a competitive rivalry against each other.
While Bill Gates and Steve Jobs’ relationship over the years improved, the companies have been rivaling each other.
The biggest platform where the two competed were the Operating Systems, and more recently the mobile phones, however, in today’s day and age, this rivalry has reached the next level – tablets.
Micrsoft’s Surface Pro series of devices and Apple’s iPad Pro have been at odds, and following is an analysis between the two:
Microsoft Surface Pro 4:
Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 was one of the most awaited releases from Microsoft, and has been met with a good response upon the announcement.
The device comes in at 12.3 inches, and features the choice of RAM between 4GB to 16GB.
The device also features options in the processors between Intel’s Core M3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors.
When it comes to storage, the users can get SSD storage varying from a minimum of 128GB to a maximum of 1TB.
The device was highly anticipated to release with the latest, Skylake processor. That however, did not happen.
Apple iPad Pro:
The Apple iPd pro releases at 12.9 inches of size, and comes in as the biggest Apple tablet ever. At 12.9 inches, it is a massive tablet to own, and owing to its size, there are several advantages.
The split screen feature that it has introduced is really useful for the users as multitasking has been made much more easier than ever before with this.
The size of the tablet also makes it an amazing tool for entertainment, coupled up with the 4 strategically placed speakers, the Apple iPad Pro is one of the most useful devices out there.
The device runs on the A9 processor, and starts at $1249, making it quite a costly device.
The Apple vs Microsoft wars have intensified, and both the companies are stepping up in the tablet markets.
While Apple was the one which revolutionized these markets with the first iPad, Microsoft’s Surface Pro series of devices have changed the way we define ‘powerful’ devices.
