Now that the IFA 2016 currently hypes up the gadget world, some people are waiting and looking for the most top-notch devices for this year. While there are a bunch of new additions to different brands this season, there has not been a lot that offered top-of-the-line specs. This is why many people are looking for the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 and MacBook Pro 2016 to come before the year ends.
The Surface is often compared with Apple's Macs or iPads, and typically, the competition is pretty stiff. Most of the time, both brands offer top tier specs, which makes the competition all the more interesting. The upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 5 and the MacBook Pro 2016 are the best examples of the companies' intense competition. These two devices are both rumored to come with superior quality.

According to IBTimes, the MacBook Pro 2016 is also expected to get a major boost through its USB 3.1 ports that will allegedly support a speed of 10 Gbps.
