I went this route because the cost of the current Macbook line-up was far too expensive for me. I couldn’t justify putting down that much money for a laptop that didn’t even have a touch screen. Apple just doesn’t seem to be innovating like they used to be.
I’ve had my surface for about 3 months and I’m very happy with it. The facial recognition, touch screen and camera are all really nice. It’s also nice and light.
I think if you’re looking for something more traditional, the new Surface Laptop might be a good option.
