Microsoft Launches 'Mac to Surface Pro 3' Site for Switchers

Microsoft Launches 'Mac to Surface Pro 3' Site for Switchers

Posted December 22, 2014 at 8:35pm by iClarified
Microsoft has created a new mini-site for Mac users considering a switch to Surface Pro 3 or looking for help on migrating their data.

Computers, and the memories you keep within them, are incredibly personal. We know moving these memories from one platform to another can be nerve-racking and learning new software can seem daunting. We want to make the transition as easy as possible. If you currently have a Mac and have questions about switching to Surface Pro 3 and Windows, we designed this site to help get you started.

The site features help on moving photos, documents, email, and more to the Surface. It also has help on using the Surface Pro 3 with iPhone, iCloud, and iTunes. Microsoft says, "Rest easy, your new Surface and iPhone will go great together."

Check out the site, at the link below...

Lol. That site should see 3 people a year. Much like their retail stores.

They lost me because 7 and so were great versions of windows I had ever used, but ignoring 8 like it didn't exist, speed was decent but it had security flaws and I only stayed with it because my parents took care of security, but after 8, I couldn't be any more pissed off when trying to get used to it for a year it's still scrambled shit. After OS X release, it helped draw the line of making Microsoft less focused. Now I have a macbook and I never looked back. If I wanted a device to work like surface, I'd get a keyboard for my iPad, but why do that when I have both now? Long story short, Microsoft needs more than windows 7 like looks and security to win me back but I doubt it.

7 and xp* (first sentence).

'Microsoft says, "Rest easy, your new Surface and iPhone will go great together."' This sums it all up. They are worried about how perfect windows platforms are, so they chose iphone, yet how can it go 'together' when you have Mac that allows handoff with ios?

Good luck making it happen now, it would've been that better if it hadn't been for 8, yet I doubt people will switch from the "best laptop ever made".

Why would you want to downgrade to Windows platform??

Microsoft going back to their roots and copying Apple. Maybe they'll make a decent OS that way. A MacBook Pro will beat a Surface any day.

No way Microsoft, thanks

I tried out the surface pro 3 didn't like it but I'm seriously thinking about going back to windows after 6 years on MacBook pros notebooks
gamerscul9870 - December 22, 2014 at 9:51pm
Are you kidding, MacBooks make windows obselete. They put more thought in OS X than windows. I used both to the full potential, and OS X really cares, if I wanted windows though, I'd pick and forever stay with 7 or xp and run them on my Mac.

Copy cats.... remember www.apple.com/switch? Microsoft's site can be found at www.microsoft.com/switch. How unoriginal.
