OS X and Windows 8.1 battle it out to see is if the hybrid is better than the laptop

Verdict

To recap, the MacBook Pro has taken this with a convincing 6-2 victory.

The Apple device won the following categories: Display, battery life, performance, operating system, ports and price.Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 was victorious when it came to design/versatility and input. The devices drew when it came to repairability.

Despite being a solid 2-in-1 hybrid, the Surface Pro 3 isn't able to match the performance and battery life of the MacBook. And based on our experience with both operating systems, the Apple device is going to have longevity and represent a better investment.
