    If you actually watch the keynote yesterday from Microsoft and then watch Apple's keynote today you must agree that Apple has lost its edge.

    Microsoft is the one innovating. New hardware with the new form factor (with the surface studio) and new accessories.

    Interestingly enough, Photoshop was actually demoed in both keynotes and if you are a graphic professional you will not that working on the surface studio is a HUGE jump in productivity while the touchbar is minor convenience benefit.

    Not only that, on top of it the microsoft hardware is way cheaper than Apple's new macbooks. The new prices are kind of ridiculous to be honest.

    Can't help but think Apple has lost its way...

    I guess that's fair to say but considering how far behind MS was (who never made any decent product) it really shows how far Apple has fallen behind

    To be honest surface book isn't really looking great either. Only studio seems like a good thing, and Microsoft charging similar pricing like apple does.

    I agree with you MS's product ideas have been more innovative and interesting. But the price really isn't a big difference.

    A "comparable" Surface Book to the 15" MBP is $2399/$2799. Now, whether the tablet is your thing or not, that's up to you. Same for the Touch Bar. But the cost of the devices are somewhat comparable at the top end. The MS Studio is more tech and computer than an iMac, but it also costs more.
