Microsoft has published a commercial on YouTube that compares the Surface Pro 7 with the 13-inch MacBook Pro, highlighting its Surface Pro 7 as a “better choice.”

This video, entitled “Microsoft Surface Pro 7: The Better Choice,” emphasizes the ease of use of the Surface Pro 7’s touchscreen and stylus, saying, “Macs only have a small (Touch) bar. Why full screen? Why don’t you use a touch screen? ” Other claims include a removable keyboard, a cheap price, and a much better gaming device.

However, the cheapest model Intel Core i3 and Surface Pro 7 with 4GB RAM have a Geekbench score of 769 for a single core and 1851 for a multi-core. In addition, the higher version of Core i5 and 8GB memory is 1210 and 4079, respectively, while the 13-inch MacBook Pro (with M1 chip and 8GB unified memory) has a single core score of 1735 and a multi-core score of 7686, so performance On the surface, it separates the Surface Pro 7.

And in terms of price, the 12.3-inch Surface Pro 7 jumps to $ 2299 (North American price, same below) with 1TB storage and 16GB of RAM. On the other hand, the 13-inch M1 MacBook Pro has a CTO with 16GB of unified memory and 2TB of storage, and the difference is also $ 2,299.

In the past, MS has struck comparative ads with the iPad to promote Surface Go, and Apple has also launched a commercial campaign “Get a Mac” to make fun of Windows PCs. There have been rumors that MS is working on developing a uniquely designed Arm-based chip for Surface devices, but I’m hoping for a future with comparative advertising competing for performance with each other.
