Microsoft Surface Book: Will it beat Apple Macbooks
Microsoft seems to be very excited in challenging established market leaders. The company whose softwares have powered laptops, PCs and other machines from the very beginning is now throwing challenges at established market leaders who actually manufactured the machines.
Microsoftâ€™s Surface Book seems to be a real competitor for Appleâ€™s laptops and there are reasons to believe that many people are going to find the latest machine from Microsoft enticing enough to fall for it immediately.
Now the company is not just going to partner with market leaders like HP, Lenovo, Dell, besides other market leaders and let them make the machine while it makes its dollars from software side, it is going to compete with them too.
The company seems to be very excited about the fact that after these long years it is now finally able to come up with high-end machines in many verticals including laptop, tablet and powerful smartphones. There is no denying the fact that all these machines look very good, the moot question that everyone is asking, will consumers fall for them in droves.
There is no denying the fact that the Surface Book seems to be an exceptionally well-made product. Surface Book that comes with a screen measuring 12.3 inches diagonally, is Microsoftâ€™s first laptop and its second device category designed for enterprise-tier use â€” the Surface line of tablets came first.
A market analyst, Pat Moorhead, while talking about Redmond based tech giantâ€™s planning says, â€œWith the mobile revolution, and with Apple and Google competing, Microsoft was in jeopardyâ€¦It had to fully integrate in order to create devices that it thought would further its cause.â€
Microsoft launched two high-end smartphones, Surface Pro 4 tablet, a second gen wearable device and the Surface Pro. The company seems to be concentrating on getting more cloud users. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has set a goal of achieving cloud revenues of $20 billion by June 2018, compared with a run rate of about $6 billion this year.
