Microsoft Surface Pro 3 or Apple MacBook 2015?There are a number of ultra-portables on the market but noteworthy of these, and possibly the best two options available, are the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 which was released on 20 June 2014 and the recently announced Apple MacBook 2015.
At 13.1mm in thickness and weighing 2.03 pounds the Apple MacBook 2015 is the thinnest MacBook ever. It has a 12-inch Retina display and 2304 x 1440 pixels screen and comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of in-built storage. Under the hood the MackBook 2015 has the Intel Broadwell Core M processor.
In comparison, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 comes with 4GB or 8GB of RAM and 64GB to 512GB of internal storage, and 12-inch, 2,160 x 1,440 pixels screen. Under the hood the Surface Pro 3 has either the Intel Core i3 (Max 1.5GHz), Core i5 (Max 2.9GHz) or Core i7 (Max 3.3GHz) CPU,
At only 9.1mm and lighter at 1.75 pounds or 800 grams it's also thinner and lighter than the MacBook.

Compared to my 35mm nearly 1.5-inch luggable Dell laptop computer, both the power packed Apple MacBook 2015 at 13mm thick and which will be released on April 10 at a price of $1,299 and the currently available Microsoft SP3 at 9mm thick and priced from $799 for the Intel Core i3 1.5GHz Processor model with 4GB RAM + 64GB storage to $1,949 for the Intel Core i7 1.7GHz Processor model with 8GB RAM + 512GB storage are certainly very impressive and worth considering!!! Some consider the Apple MaBook 2015 as being the best and most powerful ultraportable device available. However, I very much like the thinner (incredibly thin at only 9mm) and lighter Surface Pro 3 and as I'm a long-time Windows and not a Mac user, my preference is to go for a Microsoft ultraportable.
