The Surface Book offers a sleek, all-silver, magnesium design. It sports an innovative hinge that keeps the laptop’s removable display from getting too shaky. The MacBook Pro sports subtly curved corners and slip edges.

Though lighter in weight, Surface Book is wider than the MacBook Pro. Surface Book has dimensions as 12.3 x 9.14 x 0.5-0.9-inch, while MacBook Pro’s dimensions are 12.4 x 8.6 x 0.7-inch.
