The Mac must be eating quite a bit into Windoz's sales for Microsoft to stoop that low! But then again, didn't they plagiarize the Mac GUI!!!

You can do it on the ipad pro with amazing apple pencil. Not like the crap pencil you use
@&/:*%#! - March 10, 2016 at 4:45am
Why buy this crap if you already have a macbook pro? If you have a ipad pro with apple pencil, just hook it up together with astropad app you will get dual screen with 2048 pressure sensitivity in the stylus rather than their's with only 1024 pressure sensitivity. You'll get faster response because both devices doesn't consume each other's hardwares. The MBP has its own ram and so does the ipad pro. The apple pencil has surpassed the wacom stylus in terms of accuracy and better control because of the added sensors to it like gyroscope and accelerometer which the wacom only relies on its spring for pressure sensitivity.

Microsoft is out of touch with reality. No one wants to use their fingers or a stylus on their laptop or desktop computer. In addition to the dreaded "Gorilla arms syndrome", you can use your multi-touch much more effectively on a trackpad than on a vertical computer screen, because 1) you are not blocking what you are trying to manipulate, 2) you don't get messy finger smudges all over your screen, and 3) you can use smaller precise movement on a trackpad than the large imprecise movements you would make on your screen. Also, on a laptop you need to use your other hand to support the moveable display as you push your fingers all over it. And if your laptop is on your lap (usually at an angle) pushing on the screen (if not supported by your other hand) will send it crashing to the floor. Duh! The software and hardware of a computer using a desktop operating system is very different than that of a hand-held multi-touch tablet. Just because you CAN make a laptop that has a multi-touch screen, doesn't mean you SHOULD make a laptop that has a multi-touch screen! There are logical reasons why Apple makes desktop computers and multi-touch tablets, and doesn't try to combine the two. You end up with something like the Microsoft Surface. It is neither a good laptop, nor is it a good tablet. It is too thick, heavy and expensive, and using your fingers to run a desktop application is an exercise in futility (there are very few "tablet" apps for the Surface). No one buys a Surface WITHOUT a keyboard/trackpad cover, because it would be mostly useless without one.

I just think it's unprofessional to attack another company no matter who it is.

Good. Apple products have been stale and stagnant for years!!!! Stop kissing apples ass and just be unbiased for one second......
Nu uh!!

Bad! Apple products are always ahead of their games and rivals that only involve Apple proves why they're not mentioning anyone else to begin with! Enough being stabbed by Micro$ofts shattered glASS in order to get a real bias on some level!

Shouldn't he get a larger screen?

Another shitty excuse with the "higher display" bullshit? It's not like anyone is going to put their face up on a display. I've actually seen phones used in 'ads' before like 5s and s5, between computers, etc. and they look just about the same other than size, but honestly, who the f••k cares anymore?

He's obviously doing this for the money. I'm sure he uses a Mac and is buying an iPad Pro for the pen. Otherwise, he's no doubt cursing Windows as the crap OS it is.

How can you do more when you don't have that many apps to work with in the first place? Yeah, my thoughts exactly.

Everyone in world is jealous of apple. And so they are comparing themselves with Apple. So ultimately they believe that Apple is not just better than them, but best of them in world.
