Apple Touch Bar versus Surface touch screen

apple-touch-barApple finally updated their laptops. Thanks to the new processors they are, as expected, faster; the real difference, however,  is in the Touch Bar. Touch Bar is a touch sensitive OLED strip which replaces the function keys. The Touch Bar adapts itself to the app being used. Apple claims this will increase productivity. This improvement is by no means as impressive as what Microsoft offers with its Surface Pro. The full Surface Pro screen is touch sensitive, like the iPad. Whether or not the new MacBooks will be able to compete does not only depend on touchability, but also on optimised apps and the desire to work with a Mac. Because, as usual, Apple wins on design. The most heard comments at introduction were “Oh, they look so good: I want one!”.
