So the new Surface Pro has been unveiled, and it's a sleek and sexy hybrid that appears to bring together everything Microsoft has learned about its pioneering form factor.
In the marketing materials, Microsoft was keen to compare the Surface Pro (2017) to both the MacBook and the iPad Pro, Apple's take on the tablet-laptop hybrid.
Microsoft placed a lot of emphasis on inking with the new Surface Pro, touting custom silicon to reduce the latency between the pen and the display, and new tilt support for the latest version of the Surface Pen.

We compared the Surface Pro 4 to the iPad Pro in the past, and as you might expect, it's hardly any contest. However, Apple won piles of praise for the inking experience with its "Apple Pencil," at least when you disregard its silly charging solution.
It's 2017, and the iPad Pro is due for a refresh, most likely at Apple's WWDC later this year. We already determined that the Surface Pro 4 is superior to the iPad Pro in a previous comparison, but with Kaby Lake processors, a brand-new Surface Pen, and a new digitizer, the delta is even bigger between it and the latest Surface Pro.
If you're looking for a side-by-side comparison, look no further.
