Earlier this month, Apple released an advertisement called "What's A Computer?" There, the company claimed that its iPad Pro could act like a computer, once a keyboard is attached to it. Well Microsoft has answered Apple's taunting question with an advertisement of its own, called "What's A Computer? Just Ask Cortana."
Ad vs. Ad
In Apple's ad about the iPad Pro, the Cupertino-based company boasted a keyboard that was attachable and could quickly be disconnected when not needed. Further, it highlighted the features of the iPad Pro as a tablet - that it has touchscreen and users could write on its surface.
In a likely attempt at the hybrid tablet/notebook trend, Apple claimed that the existing iPad Pro could function like a computer. Unfortunately, Microsoft does not agree.
Microsoft, as noted by Mashable, makes an excellent point that its own Surface Pro 4 runs on a desktop operating system - Windows 10. Meanwhile, the iPad Pro still runs on a mobile operating system, the iOS.
Microsoft also indicates that the iPad is missing a trackpad, as well as external ports. In the end, it says, "[The] Surface does more. Just like you."
Specs vs. Specs
The iPad Pro comes in two variations - the 12.9-inch and the 9.7-inch variant. According to Laptop Mag, both relatively have the same specs, except that the larger variant runs on 4 GB of RAM, has a larger battery and an 8 megapixel and 1.2-megapixel rear and front cameras. Meanwhile, the 9.7-inch option runs on 2 GB of RAM and has a 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera.
However, both options of the iPad Pro are powered by the A9X processor and iOS 9.3. They both come in the same internal storage variants as well - 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB.
The Surface Pro 4, on the other hand, has a 12.3-inch screen. It also sports an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel front camera.
It is powered by either by Intel's Core M3 or the Core i5/i7 processor, and runs Windows 10. It also provides three options for RAM, 4 GB, 8 GB and 16 GB, and two options for internal storage, 128 GB and 256 GB.
