Spinet of a conversation of mine from another laptop discussion=
" I think the Surface Book is more powerful than the MacBooks "
I was looking to edit pictures with photoshop on the go, so i invested in THE HIGHEST END (before the performance base models) Surface book for $2700 and i liked that i could use the pen at first, but then i realized it is not well integrated for windows. But the main issue is that for adobe products, you need good clock speeds on the processor and a graphics card for some of the heavier work. Its stupid that this product has a great processor but cant make it perform. The device has to expel the heat passively, meaning that the processor is ALWAYS thermal throttling. The back of the screen near the windows logo can almost burn (if you leave your hand on it for too long) because the heat has no-where to leave efficiently. A Macbook Pro would be better at expelling heat, yet the only thing it has going for it is a slightly better processor. You have to buy the 15 inch to get a graphics card, and by that point it is probably better than a surface book. But you are still missing a touch screen, and a stylus. (The Razer Blade only has* a touch screen)[*its optional] Both the Razer Blade and the Surface Book have the same base clock of 2.6 GHz, yet the surface book cannot utilize it well because it has bad heat dissipation; The Razer Blade can utilize its boost of up to 3.6 constantly because it has fans. Generally, i like the Razer Blade over everything else because it is the strong and beautiful metal design of a Macbook, with better performance, (at least what i would use it for) and a lower price all round. Overall= For a gaming laptop: Razer For photo editing (Media Creation) with a mouse: Apple For photo editing (Media Creation) with a mouse / touchscreen: Razer For Drawing / photo editing with a stylus / touchscreen: Surface You would just have to decide what is more important (Mouse/TouchScreen/Stylus) For media consumption: gtfo - you dont need this I used to like Apple computers, but they have not improved in any meaningful way for a while now. (and no i do not consider the touch bar an improvement. Its cool and can be useful, especially with its touch id, but it requires developers to account for people who use it. extra THE PEN= The Surface App, for controlling the pen's buttons and sensitivity, could not recognize my pen. I tried taking the battery out and re-connecting it but it never let me customize anything. The pen would still work but that app would have made it so much more useful. lol sorry for length
