A week after introducing the Surface Laptop to the world, he's sitting in a room in Microsoft's Building 88 ready to show off his team's latest creation: the new Surface Pro. At first glance, it looks a lot like 2015's Surface Pro 4, but it's part of a bigger lineup of the entire Surface family that Microsoft is now ready to take worldwide.

For the first time in Surface history, Microsoft will start shipping two new products (Surface Pro and Surface Laptop) worldwide at launch. June 15th will see these new products launch, and a big expansion for the Surface Studio all-in-one PC, too. It's clearly a date that Microsoft has been working toward for quite some time, and as I walked around Microsoft's secretive Surface building located at its Redmond, Washington, campus, it's easy to see that the Surface family of devices is now coming to life.

Be honest with yourself: which line of devices feels more innovative and exciting: Surface or Mac?

Easy answer.

On one hand you have a new input medium. (i.e Touchbar), 4 USB-C port, and one block aluminium chassis, on the other hand we have a device with a $800+ price tag which doesn't come with a USB-C or Thunderbolt port, and use Alcantara (a.k.a carpet in the bathroom) on top of the keyboard.

Neither is particularly innovative and/or exciting but I know which one I would buy.
I did actually.
