The video shows off the product’s stylus and touchscreen and made mention on how it’s better than the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar, as well as a lower price tag, detachable keyboard and how it’s better suited for gaming than Apple’s offering.

Pricing for the Surface Pro 7 with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage starts at $749.99, while the 13 inch M1 MacBook Pro with 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage starts at $1,299.

Microsoft has been constantly positioning its products, particularly the Surface lineup and how it’s an ideal device to provide both tablet and computer experience. The tech giant has a few ads that put the Surface lineup on a side-by-side versus the iPad, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.
