Microsoft has been seen to specifically target Apple ever since it launched the Surface Book. The company had stated that its $1,499 laptop-tablet hybrid was the ultimate laptop and was “twice as fast” as Apple’s MacBook Pro.
We’re not quite sure about the ‘ultimate’ part, but the Surface Book is surely an awesome piece of hardware with amazing specifications. The Redmond giant has today launched a new “Making the switch” site to help Macbook owners switch to its Surface Book. In essence, to reiterate that the Surface Book is worth the switch.
Microsoft explains the reason for this Apple-specific targeting website:
