    I’ve gotta agree with you. This Surface Laptop actually brings the competition to Apple Macbook, not Chromebooks. It’s sleek and premium, it’s powerful, it’s expensive and it’s also more secure as Mac OS on Macbooks, thanks to Microsoft’s decision to go with Windows 10S. Meanwhile, Microsoft’s partners like HP, Acer and many more, yes, they are the ones that will bring the competition for Chrombooks.
