    Hi ALL,

    I'm sure many of you guys have seen that Microsoft has announced their Surface Laptop (which is beautifuuuul) and some of you might be a tad bit lazy to research on the specs. I'm thinking this will be very helpful for Students that are about to get a new laptop, need a new laptop for university onwards.
    Without further ado, allow me to present to you a comparisons between the aforementioned laptops.

    1) New Razer Blade Stealth

    Picture1.png
    Pros:
    • The ultimate gaming category
    • Connect with the Razer Core with your dedicated graphics card, BOOM ultimate winner
    • 100% Adobe RGB (available in IGZO 4K touch display)
    • 70% Adobe RGB (available in QHD display)
    • Thunderbolt to USB-C
    • Charged with USB-C
    • Chromaaaaaaa
    Cons:
    • Screen border
    • no THX certification yet :slightly_sad:
    • Intel HD Graphics 620 (without the Core)

    2) Surface Laptop

    Pros:
    • available in 4 Colours (Burgundy, Platinum, Cobalt Blue, Graphite Gold)
    • Vapor Chamber cooling system (awesomeee)
    • Pixel Sense Display (touch and inking compatible)
    • Alcantra material covered keyboard
    • Intel Iris Plus graphics 640 (available for higher end model)
    Cons:
    • 1 usb 3.0 slot
    • no USB-C port :slightly_sad:
    • Proprietary charging slot
    3) Macbook Pro 2016

    Pros:
    • Retina Display
    • Touch ID
    • Touch Bar
    • Intel Iris Graphics 550
    • Big Track pad (nice!)
    Cons:
    • 4 USB-C slot (big bummer)
    P.S. I have not much knowledge on macbooks, (partially bias against it :/ )

    Disclaimer: There are too many Macbooks, will put it in the Tech specs comparison. While there are good laptops like XPS 13 and HP Spectre 13.3, am unable to put it in at the moment.

    Now with the Tech Specs! Please note that this is all based on configured specs and is placed towards pricing first at the range of $899 onwards

    This is a good comparison you put together. Hopefully this helps some people who can't decide which laptop they wanna get. I'm personally gonna for for the Blade 14 inch so I can have a 1060 in my laptop, but the Surface laptop does look super pretty. I think microsoft did a good job with the design of it.

    Thanks! Appreciate it :) Blade 14 inch is a BEAST especially with the Razer Core!

    Razer Blade - The beauty is now a BEAST! :D

    I really do think Microsoft's design sooner or later is gonna become better than Apple. They really did a good job there! (pun intended). IMHO, Post Jobs design is meh, while their OS is fluid and nice but they really need to catch up a lot now if they want to stay ahead of the competition.. Surface laptop colour choices are really unique and original like Apple's iPhone 7 colour choices (jet black, matte black, RED). Not to mention, the Macbook 12 inch and Air are really a let down since they do not update anymore compared to the Razer Blade Stealth and Surface Laptop.

    I agree, post Jobs designs are getting really boring. Apple really needs to step it up. Microsoft is doing an amazing job at their designs with the whole surface line.
