My wife needed a new laptop for work. We use macs at home but her work uses software that doesn't support OSX so she had to get a Windows laptop and she went for a Microsoft Surface Book. It is absolutely lovely. So well designed, a delight to use with a beautiful screen, nice keyboard and overall a fantastic look. I can't help but be sad when I look at it though as it is so obviously what the MacBook Pro should be. I don't know what's going on with Apple and their hardware design choices but things have been stagnant for so long. My MacBook Pro is eight years old now (gen 1 unibody MBP). My iPad is about five years old and too slow to use. I've wanted a new laptop and tablet for a few years now but Apple just don't make what I want. It's 2017 and I want something that feels like current tech. Tablet and notebook technologies have matured so much over the years, I don't want dedicated devices anymore. I want a high end laptop with dedicated graphics. I want a full keyboard with physical function keys and a high quality touchscreen. I want a high end tablet with great digitiser that I can also run desktop applications on. Basically, I want a Microsoft Surface Book. The only difference is I want a Microsoft Surface Book made by Apple and running a hybrid version of OSX and iOS. I've always loved Apple products, both hardware and software, but aside from my iPhone, all my Apple stuff is getting really long in the tooth and Apple sell no enticing newer versions. Aside from my feelings on replacing my MBP and iPad detailed above, I also have a 12 core old shape Mac Pro and 30" cinema display - a 7 odd year old computer and a 10 year old display. Apple offers no viable replacements for either. I want to buy new computers but the only tempting new computers run an OS I don't want to use. Sorry for the rant, I'm just frustrated with Apple's hardware lineup and jealous of my wife's new Windows machine. I can't help but think that if Apple still cared about their macs, the MacBook Pro would have been updated with something similar to the Microsoft Surface Book three years ago and the iMac would have been something like the Microsoft Surface Studio ages ago too.
