Microsoft Says ‘Disappointment’ of New MacBook Pro Has More People Switching to Surface Than Ever Before

by John_A

Microsoft has announced November was its best month ever for consumer Surface sales. In a blog post, the company said more people are switching from Macs to Surface devices than ever before following the “disappointment” of the new MacBook Pro, particularly among professional users.

More people are switching from Macs to Surface than ever before. Our trade-in program for MacBooks was our best ever, and the combination of excitement for the innovation of Surface coupled with the disappointment of the new MacBook Pro – especially among professionals – is leading more and more people to make the switch to Surface, like this. It seems like a new review recommending Surface over MacBook comes out daily. This makes our team so proud, because it means we’re doing good work.

Shortly after the new MacBook Pro launched, Microsoft launched a promotion offering up to $650 trade-in credit towards a new Surface Book or Surface Pro 4. Microsoft also unveiled the Surface Book i7 and Surface Studio in October, and the all-in-one desktop in particular has been met with positive reviews.
