Microsoft's Surface Laptop is expected to ship on or before June 15. It's a top-of-the-line notebook, and as such, it's sure to draw comparisons between it and Apple's popular MacBooks.

So how does the Surface Laptop compare to today's MacBooks? Just like Microsoft makes multiple Surface PCs, Apple also sells a variety of MacBook models, including the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. The most accurate comparison is probably between the Surface Laptop and the MacBook Air. And just last week, we published a detailed comparison of the technical specifications on both these computers.

We don't want to give the whole thing away, but the Surface won. By a long shot.

We're admittedly biased, however. This is Windows Central after all. Coincidentally, there's a related conversation happening in our forums right now.

How does this new laptop compare to the newest one from Apple's newest laptop?

And while the folks over there are also likely biased (again, it's the Windows Central forums), they're clearly less so than we are. And some thoughtful folks have already chimed in.

What do you think? If you had to pick between the Surface Laptop and MacBook Air, would pick the Surface just for the OS alone? How much do the specs matter? Or maybe you think comparing the Surface Laptop to the MacBook Pro makes more sense? Share your thoughts in the forums.
