Although most (if not all) of us fell in love with the Surface Book at first sight, Tim Cook (CEO Of Apple) apparently doesn’t buy into it. When asked on his thought’s about Microsoft’s latest laptop hybrid, he called it “diluted”, claiming it doesn’t succeed at being either laptop nor tablet.
It’s a product that tries too hard to do too much,” he said, according to the Irish Independent. “It’s trying to be a tablet and a notebook and it really succeeds at being neither. It’s sort of diluted.”
Of course this week also happens to be the week the iPad Pro starts shipping, an iPad with a 12.9″ display running iOS (not OSX), which also comes with its own Stylus/Pencil, similar to the Surface tablets and the Surface book (which charges in the most absurd way – see image). I’m betting a good number of those iPad Pencils break within a week, regardless it’ll be interesting to see if despite what Apple are saying now, maybe future generations of the iPad Pro will run a full OSX, but of course it’ll only be after Apple re-invents the Hybrid laptop.
