    Pains me to say this being a long term Apple user but this is a hundred times more interesting and exciting than the iPad Pro. Can actually imagine myself creating things with this product while the iPad Pro restricts that due to app containers/lack of file management and lack of true pro software (which will never come because it will never be profitable)

      I don't understand the confusion. The Surface Pro 4, which Microsoft always compares to the Macbook Air, maps more to the iPad Pro . The Surface Book, which the OP is about, maps more to a Macbook Pro, not the iPad Pro.

      See? Simple. ;)

      I don't see how sandboxing affects the quality of your work?

      And if anything, the Apple ecosystem arguably has the best apps. If you're looking for 'pro' software in terms of desktop software, then that's a different story and should be compared to a Macbook Pro.

        It affects getting files on and off the machine, the fact it doesn't just have a straight filesystem like a real computer.
