I made a decision today that I regret. I bought a Surface Book 2. I did this after I returned my 2017 MBP because it had that rattling noise in the panel from the “light screen” or whatever it’s called shifting around. Many reviews online were really hyping up the Surface Book 2 so I figured I would really like it. Well, after about 5 hours of windows updates, I was finally able to use it properly. I am really not happy. First of all, the most jarring difference between these two notebooks is in the quality of the trackpad. The Apple trackpad blows Microsoft’s out of the water, no questions asked. The Surface track pad is quite sluggish, smaller, and not as smooth. Performance is another issue. Nothing feels very responsive like it did on the MBP. I don’t want to write a novel but to me the MBP beat out the Surface in every aspect. I have decided I’m going to return my surface and wait until the 2018 MBP. If they also have the screen rattling issue I will just deal with it because there is no better option for a laptop currently on the market.
