    Three new sets of ads were released by Microsoft recently, comparing it’s Surface Pro 3 tablet and Apple’s MacBook Air in all three. According to the ads, the Surface Pro 3 has many features that the MacBook Air doesn’t have including the ability to write on the screen with a stylus and having a touch sreen in general. All three ads end with the saying “the tablet that can replace your laptop.”

    The first ad features two different narrators, one using the MacBook Air and the other using the Surface pro 3. The take home message from this ad was that the surface pro 3 has an equal Intel i5 processor as the MacBook Air along with having a touch screen, Microsoft Office, and Photoshop. Narrator 2 who’s using the MacBook Air claims he can do the same thing with his laptop, except he would have a lot more to carry (bringing in the iPad for touchscreen purposes and a pen and notepad).

    The second ad is a direct comparison of the two devices showing both having 4GB Ram and 128 GB of storage. However, the Surface Pro again has the benefit of a touch screen, detachable screen, and pen support whereas the laptop doesn’t. The last and final ad shows the physical features of the Surface Pro 3 as having a USB port, a kickstand, a touch screen and DisplayPort. They also claim it runs faster than the Mac.

    What do you think of the ads and which do you prefer? Let us know in the comments below!

    I very much dislike windows, but in terms of hardware the surface pro 3 appears quite nice indeed.
