When we talk here about the new Surfaces from Microsoft, the overwhelming majority of your comments were extremely positive, including comparing the new (and beautiful) Redmond giant’s machines with the new ones MacBooks Pro and giving advantage to the former – a feeling echoed, in fact, by a large part of technology admirers around the world.
Now, it was Microsoft itself that decided to take advantage of this almost unprecedented situation and make fun of its (ex?) Main competitor.
In a post on the official Windows blog, the company celebrated the success of its new line of computers and said that this November was the month with the best sales of Surfaces in history. Not only that, however: the number of consumers who turned their backs on the Mac and decided to embrace the new machines from Big M it was the greatest of all time.
Among the reasons that Uncle Satya and his gang see for such a migration, the post lists the successful exchange program in which Microsoft gives a credit of up to $ 650 in the delivery of a Mac for the purchase of a Surface, as well as a “Disappointment” of the community in the new MBPs – especially among professionals.
Our MacBook exchange program [para Surfaces] it was the best ever, and the combination of enthusiasm for Surfaces innovation and disappointment with the new MacBook Pro – especially among professionals – is driving more and more people to switch to Surface […]. It seems that every day a new review comes out recommending a Surface instead of a MacBook. This makes our team extremely proud, because it means that we are doing a good job.
Of course, on her side, Apple is doing everything to announce to the world that sales of its new MBPs are going from strength to strength – coldly analyzing the situation, by the way, Microsoft’s comments do not necessarily exclude the possibility of the machines from Apple are making success. Still, it will be interesting to see how this fight unfolds.
