The Microsoft Surface Pro 5 release is definitely something that many tech lovers are waiting for. The Surface Pro product line has been largely successful over the past couple of years, with last year?s Surface Pro 4 getting excellent ratings. Now, all eyes are on the Surface Pro 5 which could hopefully release soon in order to catch up with its nemesis, the MacBook Pro 2016.
The Surface Pro and the MacBook Pro laptops are two completely different devices yet consumers just love to pit them against each other. This year is certainly not expected to be different. With the recent leak that the MacBook Pro 2016 could be launched as early as October, many fans of the Surface Pro line are asking if the next generation of the device could release as well.
While many are hoping that this could happen, PC Advisor reports that the chances of this are very slim. There are rumors that the Surface Pro 5 could be launched by October as well but many factors may stop this from happening.
For starters, the Surface Pro 5 is expected to feature Intel?s Kaby Lake processors which have not yet become available yet. The MacBook Pro 2016 was initially expected to have the same processor too but it was revealed that the early release date could make that highly impossible.
